After a few days of stomach issues and lots and lots of crying I think Parker is finally back to normal. He definitely can only drink soy based formula! We thought he might be over not being able to drink milk based formula and tried it again since Ashley had $75.00 worth of formula sitting in the cabinet – but NO! Two days after trying that he was a mess! No one could put him down and he just screamed at the top of his lungs. Another lesson learned. As you can see now he is a HAPPY baby again!

“The Move”

We spent Friday, Saturday, and Sunday moving Ashley’s family out of their house and mostly into storage units. Russ kept everyone motivated and kept saying we can get this done – just keep working!!! Erin was definitely just sick and tired of the whole thing by the time they got home Saturday night about 11:30. They will be living with Pete’s Mom until they decide about a new house. It was an exhausting task but when all was done everyone was happy. (Ashley just hopes they got the right things in the climate controlled storage unit and the others in the regular unit – we’ll see!) Pete’s Mom lives about 15 miles from Wynne. I told Erin yesterday it seems like they have moved out of state even though I don’t think I will see them any less. Luke and Rylee will be spending some nights with me to go to school the next morning and I will still keep them while Ashley works. I just got used to them being right around the corner.....

One More Prayer Request

Whooo-Hoooo! Yea! Just received important information from another sweet cousin of mine. I'm sure you think by now I have lots of cousins - well, I don't have that many but the ones I do have are VERY important and special to me. Cinda, another cousin from Kansas (and Baylee's Aunt), just finished her last radiation treatment for breast cancer. She is doing so well and has such a wonderful attitude! Please keep her in your prayers for the good news to continue.

Please pray for my precious little cousin, Baylee Anne Banning, who is 10 months old and was diagnosed with Stage IV Neuroblastoma when she was 6 months old. She lives in Kansas and if her counts are where they need to be she will have a stem cell transplant in Fort Worth, Texas, sometime in March. To read about her battle go to http://www.carepages.com/ and her password is BayleesBattle. Her family needs prayers, specifically, for her counts to improve so they can proceed with her transplant.

Also, please pray for another favorite cousin of mine (Faye) here in Arkansas who is very ill with brain cancer. Her children and grandchildren are just taking it one day at a time right now. She is the kind of person who can always make you laugh and will just make your day. Please pray for her and her family.

Love to All...... (and Thank you)
