Swimming With My Girlfriend

Braden jumped into the pool more than willingly with daddy. Must have been that cutie pie on the other end of the pool :)

He is 25lbs and attempting to walk all the time. Still wobbly and unsure at times but fearless in attempting. He loves to share things with us and shows us everything he encounters. It has been rough on his health as he has been sick all the time. He is such a sweet baby and everyone comments on how well behaved he is in public places.

Honoring Mothers

Mother's Day is only a week away and a day we honor all our moms. As many of you know my journey with Braden was... well a journey, especially at the beginning. You may recall I had an amazing night nurse care for me who was involved with an organization African Mother's Health Initiative (AMHI) that focuses on saving moms like me and babies like Braden in Malawi Africa, a place with far less resource, money and technology to do what we can do in the United States.

In honor of Mother's Day, AMHI is running a fundraising campaign to help mothers and babies in need. Any amount makes an impact: only $20 provides a postpartum visit from a trained nurse and $35 will provide a month's supply of formula to an orphaned infant. Please consider giving a gift to AMHI on behalf of your mom, wife, sister, daughter, or any woman in your life who is an amazing mother.

Easy options to give are found here.

Thank you for continuing to follow Braden's Journey. He has been healthy for a whole week! Thriving at school. Trying to walk everywhere! Laughs all the time and loves life!
