Maybe thinking of this guy will help stave off too many tears!

19 days???

Wow. Just the thought of our trip being that close made me get butterflies! Hahaha...I can't imagine how you guys must be feeling!

Praying for health for all of you! I just went and bought 2 bottles of Vitamin C capsules (DH won't chew or drink the other) for he and I to start consuming in hopes of staving off any ickies. DS drinks his Vit C with the various juices he has (and fruits he eats), so I'm hoping that helps. Now, the wiping of snot across his face and then touching everything else.....that's a work in progress and will be for a very long time, I'm thinking.

Oh yes vitamin c and lots of hand sanitizer. He seems to be fighting this off okay but I will feel secure when it is all gone.

Yes 19 days is crazy! I am kind if freaking out to say the least. So so excited though. Gavs none verbal but laughs so much when we talk about it. Can't wait to see him in action down there!

1 week and 6 days!! As you can imagine we are all anxious and excited! I am happy to report that Gavin has almost completely kicked his cold/ bronchitis! We still have a little congestions but with the breathing treatments he seems to be a new boy! We have started getting things together but no official packing yet--- my husband says it is too early lol but I tried to explain it is never too early to be prepared

We are doing great! How have you guys been? Gavin's behaviors has been awesome and he seems excited. We still have not had our party. We received an email on Wednesday that said our stuff was sent to our wish granters and we should hear from them on Thursday. Still no word yet though. I will start to worry if a few more days past but I know they ahve been really busy (thei daugther is getting married). So we are patiently waiting. I am trying to keep myself from the urge to pack now We did get a letter that said we will fly out of Moline to Chicago for a 3 hour lay over and he Orlando. Which works well for us because we have a lot of family there so are familar with the area. We wont have too much time to wander though. Cant wait to tell you how everything goes
