Welcome to the world Faith!

Today I took the boys for a quick visit to meet Trinity's new baby sister, Faith. She is such a perfect little peanut! They are all doing amazing, and we are so very happy for them!

Our newest kiddos
Trinity and Quintin play so nice together!

Here is a fun flashback pic of Q & T almost 3 years ago. It is so amazing watching them grow up together!!!!! (notice their outfits)

On Saturday my beautiful niece Kaitlyn had her first dance recital. I was a proud Auntie!!! As you may already know, Randy and I are one million percent sure our family is complete, so Kaitlyn promises to be my girl:-)

Muah... Love ya Kaitlyn!!!!!!

Can you even stand it?!?!?!?!?!

Zachary even came to see his cousin's first performance

The 3 amigos
I knew Kaitlyn was going to get an insane amount of flowers so I decided to do something different. Check out the lei we had made for her.

A few more pics...

I am EXHAUSTED after a long week without Randy. Fortunately his flight landed and he is in route home:-) We all missed him very much! Thanks to everyone who helped me survive this long week.
On Monday I took Zachary for his 2 month checkup. He is over 13 lbs already! What a chunker! At least there is no concern that he is thriving:-) We are continuing to thicken his bottle to prevent food from going into his lungs. They will do another video swallow study in 5 weeks. At the moment he is sleeping but unfortunatley that is pretty unpredictable. One day he will go 12-15 hours without anything other than a 15 minute cat nap and hours of screaming, and the next day he will take a 3 hour nap. I believe he is going to work through this HORRIBLE colic stage and be a happy, healthy little boy. In the mean time, we find ways to get through it, after all we have been down this difficult road once before.
Both the boys are sleeping so that means I should be too! Stac took a few pics of the kids on Thursday, enjoy!

Guilty as Charged!

Zachary Witt was charged with torturing his mother for 6 days while his daddy was out of town. Charges include sleepless nights, endless hours of screaming, and inability to poop!

Good Times!

My dear friend Angie and her mom were nice enough to bring me dinner and lend a helping hand. Angie also brought along her ADORABLE little boy, Weber. I loved every second of my time with them!!!

Zachary and Weber less then thrilled to be taking a pic.

Thats better!

Ahhhhhhhh, they are sleeping:-)

Kelby's 13th Birthday

On April 7th my family celebrated the 13th anniversary of the day Billy received my kidney. As most of you know, we call the kidney Kelby:-) Our busy schedules made it difficult for the family to get together to celebrate last week. Tonight we had an impromptu BBQ at my parents. Zachary is having a manageable day so I was able to relax a little and even do some blogging tonight. That is progress!!!!
We spent the majority of the evening in the screened in porch. It was a BEAUTIFUL night!
The kids had a blast!
Enjoying a relaxing dinner as a family, minus Randy... he had to work:-(
Auntie Stacey & Zachary
Is it obvious based on the way I look how exhausted I am?????
Celebrating THIRTEEN healthy years!!! Congrats Kelby:-) MANY MORE!!!

Wow... the Easter bunny got Quintin Toy Story 1 and 2!
Zachary was less then excited about his basket full of bottles and formula.
The day before Easter we took Quintin to an egg hunt. It was freezing and raining! It was a quick hunt... but long enough to take a few quick pics with the Easter bunny.
Coco was a good sport and helped me collect my eggs.


This was a crazy Easter. We started our day off at Jodi's house for a wonderful brunch. Zachary had a short fussy spell and then crashed for a few hours. We all had a wonderful time. Thanks to Jodi for hosting every year!
First ever matching outfits..... BUT not the last:-)

After Jodi's we headed home for Q's nap before we headed to my parents for dinner. Quintin continued to be spoiled rotten!
Zachary and his Godmother Coco... he is a lucky boy!
Lauren put together the most adorable egg hunt...thanks Lauren!!!
"I found another egg... where will it lead me next?"
Quintin and Coco going through his Easter basket
Unfortunately Zachary had a pretty rough night. He fussed and cried the majority of our evening. Uncle Jim was trying to get him to stop crying.... gee, I can't understand why it didn't work.

After several hours of crying we decided it was time to call it a night. We packed up the boys and headed out to start driving. We agreed to drive as long as we had to to get Zachary to sleep. After a short while of horrible screaming, he fell asleep!!! Monday was another miserable day. Tuesday morning Randy and I made the decision to try a new avenue. We took Zachary to a chiropractor that specializes in working with kids. We still have a long way to go, but there is no question that Zachary has made progress since Tuesday. We are so hopeful that this new treatment will provide us all some relief allowing us ALL to get some rest! Thanks for all the well wishes!!!

Keeping Q busy!

As you can probably tell from my recent posts, things have been pretty tough around here. We are trying really hard to keep Q busy. I don't have much free time to post pics lately, but here are a few from the past few weeks.
