Malakai was born Sep 24, 2008. At four weeks old, multiple tests determined he had a rare liver disease called Biliary Atresia. BA is when the bile duct between the liver and the small intestine is blocked or absent. He had his first surgery Nov 6 to temporarily fix the problem. During a five week hospital stay for ascites, Malakai was put on the transplant list on Mar 20. He recieved his "Gift of Life" May 12, 2009 at Children's Hospital in St. Louis.

Welcome Jack Owen Bradley...
Congrats Sarah and Dan...I can't wait to meet your new little guy. Jack Owen Bradley was born earlier this afternoon, weighing in at a whopping 8 pounds 7.5 ounces and 21.5 inches long....and he was 3 1/2 weeks earlier! That's a BIG baby. Love you guys!!!
Here are some pictures we took this morning when we went out to the garden.
The turtle she named "Pokie"
She has slipped one time, got her foot wet and didn't like it very much! She's much more careful now :)
The loves of my life :)
Josh took Makena to the apartment for a nap so I decided to take Malakai out to the garden to get some fresh air. We were sitting there, enjoying the beautiful weather and I see Malakai staring behind me. So I look and there was a man talking to him. This is what he was saying, "Look at you, you little flirt. You're so pretty!" So then a few minutes later he walks up to me and says "You've got one pretty princess" I almost laughed. I've never thought he looked like a girl! I said, "He's a boy..." LOL I felt bad that I hadn't corrected him before...oops! He was in a shirt that said "Mr. Popular," had blue socks and a blue blanket. LOL
Not much to add today, he's doing great! He did poop on me once though...Love being a mom :)
Eating the other day...still not too thrilled with eating real food...
