one word....

Asher has the measles. yuck.
This was before the outbreak. Playing in the backyard.

Yuri was figuring out this thing called 'Grass'.

Bohdan posing. I had the boys outside soaking up the Vit D.
His chapped chin has almost healed up. almost. Not completley because he hasn't stopped chewing his fingers.

Caius posing with his cups. Poor kid is all chapped up from the snot and the weather.

Yuri with dinner around his mouth. Yes that is chocolate.

Jumping outside in his PJs.

Ok for the cardiologist update.

Both boys are fine! Praise the Lord.
We actually got an EKG and an echo-cardiogram on both boys. Wow!! Everyone did great!!
Dr. Glasow said he couldn't find the repair on Bohdan and that the surgery looked great. He said that there is a small murmur but nothing abnormal. He said Yuri's heart was perfect!

Big sigh of relief!! Thank you for your prayers. Neurologist appointment for Yuri is this Thursday. I will let you know how it goes.


  1. Huge smiles coming through cyber space. Yuck on the measles(There has to be an end to all of the sickness!), LOVE Yuri and the grass, Bohdan in the sunshine, Caius with his brilliant smile.....just love the pictures. Those are faces of hope. And joy. And wonder.

    And doing a happy dance over the awesome cardiology report! Whooo HOOO!

    Why don't I get chocolate for dinner?

    Still praying for you all.


  2. I love the pictures of your boys! Thank you for sharing. We will continue to pray for you all. Never hesitate to ask for help if you need it...

  3. So glad the boys are doing well. Loved the pictures! Thank you for sharing :)

  4. Oh the birthday suit vitamin d pics are awesome!! :) The measels??? OH dear..are they all going to get it now?

    Praise the Lord for good heart reports!!!!

  5. Those smiles speak volumes Autumn! How on earth did that poor sweet boy get measles?! Hope he's feeling better soon (and that the other children avoid it!). So happy to hear Bohdan and Yuri have healthy hearts and continued prayers for Yuri's neurology appointment! A quick question, if you don't mind, I know that Bohdan has DS but Yuri does not, is that correct? He has other, unknown, issues or ??

  6. Great pictures and good news from the cardiologist, but...MEASLES? Yikes. I'll pray he recovers soon and no one else gets it.

  7. Beautiful pictures! I hope Asher gets better soon!

  8. I have the same question about Yuri that Shari asked. I love his sweet face.

    Thank you for sharing! I hope all goes well and that you continue to find things that work for your new boys. There's no telling what they went through and what their triggors are. I will continue to pray for you for the guidance and patience you need. Its going to take time!!

    Have you looked at those sensory blankets they sell, they are weighted blankets or weighted objects (like teddy bears) that seem to soothe children with sensory issues. Yuri may enjoy a weighted blanket or wrap when he is having a melt down or during naps and such.

    Are you using any creams or ointments for Bohdans face? Yuri looks like he may have some dry skin too. Its that time of year when you just gotta slather the little ones in creams! lol.

    Thank you for sharing your journey. I love your boys!!
