Oh happy day!! The day Emmett came home!! What a joyous occasion, and the great thing is, you are only just getting started!! What a beautiful baby he is now that he's got all those contraptions off of himself where you can actually see just how perfect God made him!! That Aggie outfit suits him too! I like it!

Colton, thank you sir for taking the momentous effort to keep us updated to this point! Though I have shed many tears over a baby that I don't really even know, most have now been tears of joy just reading your updates these past few weeks... You sir are indeed a blessed man. You have a beautiful wife and a beautiful, strong healthy son!! There's no greater gift God can give a man than those two gifts right there.

Oh my precious Lord Jesus, thank You for Your power and glory in this work You have done to this point in this little one's life. We ask You Lord, continue to grow him just like the Father did for you as we are told in the Book of Luke, 2:52... Lord Jesus we know every person needs to grow equally in all directions, spiritually, mentally, physically, and socially. Give Emmett this kind of growth that he may prosper.

Luk 2:52 And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and men.

Lord we ask You to pour out Your grace on this family that they will have many years together as Little Emmett grows into a strong man and a witness for You. We thank You Lord Jesus for the gift of Emmett to this family, and we thank You for the gift of eternal life that You brought to us by Your sacrifice, and it is in Your powerful name Jesus we ask and pray these things, Amen.

What a blessing and home for Christmas.

Aa the missionary Junipero Serra who brought Christianity to Cali in the late 1700s said,

“Always go forward and never turn back”.

Merry Christmas.

Hey guys, thanks for about Emmett! I dropped the ball getting these posted, but better late than never I guess! It was the best Christmas we've ever had, that's for sure. Here's a recent update and few pics!

Week 3 Post-discharge Emmett update. Emmett continues to do fantastic! It seems like with every visit he adds mulitple ounces of weight. With next week's visits, I fully expect him to break the 10 lb mark! That's quite the change from his 1 lb 14 oz weight when he entered this world.

Emmett's doctor visits went great this! The pulmonologist was really impressed with Emmett, considering he was a 24 weeker. He reassured us of what we already knew; we are so blessed that our little man is doing so well. After a session with Emmett removed from oxygen, the doctor gave us the go ahead to take Emmett off of oxygen while he's awake! This doesn't help us much on our sleeping situation and this persistent, beeping, pulse oximeter, but it is one step closer to getting off oxygen support. What a joyous day that will be! Emmett's other visit was with the Electrophysiologist, who was equally impressed with the status of Emmett's well being. The heart monitor Emmett wore two weeks ago showed no irregular heart beats or rhythms. He had an average heart rate of 80 bpm. All of this means he has absolutely no concern with Emmett's heart rate, and he will continue on without being paced.

Next week will be another two visit week. We'll be stopping back for a quick check up with the eye doctor. Then it's a new visit for us, as we check in with the physical therapist to make sure Emmett is hitting his developmental milestones.

The three of us want to wish you all a very Merry Christmas! We're so glad we get to spend it at home with our handsome little guy. With it being Christmas, we're reminded how fortunate we are to have you all supporting and praying for us this year. We couldn't have done it without you all.

I remember when Weston and his parents were being lifted up in prayer, now he is hunting with his parents, doing things that couldnt be foreseen back then. Same will be for Emmett, couple of years from now he will be doing some awesome stuff.

Hey guys. I havent posted about our little guy in a while. I wanted to share an update about our little guy, and some exciting other news!

Emmett update. As promised, this update contains some really big, big, BIG news in it!

Our little guy has been just great since the last update. Today he had visit with the eye doctor, and once again his ROP is keeping at bay. We don't have much farther to go till he's able to receive his eye surgery and put this ROP behind him once and for all. Emmett also had a visit from a developmental group to assess where he is developmentally compared to his original due date. Little man scored at or above on every single one of his tests, which is amazing considering all he's been through with his prematurity. We're so thankful and blessed for this.

Our next big milestone potentially lies in a visit with the pulmonologist this week. We're hopeful the doctor decides to take Emmett off of oxygen support. Life will get so much easier for all 3 of us if he is. We've taken him off of oxygen for 5 hours at a time without any desats. We think he's ready, so hopefully the doctor does too.

So... what's this BIG news we have?? I'll let Emmett do the honors

This came as a complete shock to us. Conceiving Emmett was a very difficult, multi year ordeal that resulted in lots of money, and surgery for my wife. When Emmett was delivered, the doctor told us that her endometriosis had returned, and that we would likely experience difficult conceiving again. 2 days before Christmas, my wife walks in with a look of complete shock; in her hand a positive test! We're very thankful, blesed, and a bit nervous. The next year will be a busy one, as we continue with Emmett's cares on top of visits with the OB for our new little one. We'll be seeing a high risk doctor for this pregnancy, and my wife will be monitored on a weekly basis. There are IV treatments my wife can receive that will help avoid the same situation repeating itself with this baby. At $4000 a week, we're praying insurance will cover it!

This second one is coming a little earlier than planned, but we wouldn't have it any other way now.
