A year ago today.....

A year ago today...... we said good-bye to a place we called home.

A year ago today...... we hugged the doctors & nurses and bid them a sweet farewell.

A year ago today..... we safely strapped you in your carseat for the very first time.

A year ago today..... we wheeled our wagon of belongings down that infamous skywalk.

A year ago today..... we rode together, our new family, home.

A year ago today..... we held you, rocked you, fed you, kissed you, and watched you sleep in your new home.
A year ago today..... we will never forget!


How quickly this time has passed, but how each new day brings adventure and something new to love about Braden.
Braden Updates: He is so close to walking....he takes about 2.5 steps before he gets too scared and sits down. Last weekend, we spotted molar 3 breaking through....he's a tough cookie as he has tolerated all of them quite well. He is pointing and still saying, "That's a car" to every car he sees or hears. Just today he put the connection to Rich and da-da. Rich is hoping he will no longer call him "mama" or "mom." He's saying "nana" for banana and whole bunch of jibber with emotion, so we know he's trying to tell us something! We are anxious to see what Dr. Cava thinks of this growing boy as we venture to CHW on Monday, October 1st. My next update will probably be then as we will have "heart news" to update you with.
Please keep Maddison Watson and her family in your prayers this week. She is having her surgery on Tuesday (not tomorrow as originally planned). Her caringbridge site is:
Have a great week,
Love The Petska's

Great pics, as always! :) Your entry made me chuckle at the end...Sammy called Evan "Mommy" for a quite a while too...but he caught on soon enough! So wonderful when they really start talking. Glad to see and read that all is well!
