Tia and the kids with Poppy

Hey everyone,

Here are some new picts of the kiddos. Tia and her daily routine of pulling as many books off the book shelf as she can reach. And that's just one book shelf. The other smaller book shelf is by the front door and she empties that every night and blocks the door. BUT she is learning - I tell myself - yah how to make a mess.

And the other pict is Max and Zoe with their Poppy. Poppy was here for about a week and hung out with the kids on several days. Zoe and Max love touching the IPhone!

Thanks for looking....

Eli update

Hey everyone,

Just a quick update on Eli. I have an appointment at Vandy on June 1st to meet with a new OB. We'll be delivering at Vandy because Eli is a "high risk pregnancy."
I'm about 26 weeks and Eli is moving like crazy.
We're just praying for peace and a healed baby!
God bless,
lots of love,
Beth and family

Kwerner Design Challenge #50

Hello all,

This is my most recent card challenge. Here are the supplies: Whisper white, riding hood red, barley banana, tempting turquoise, and chocolate chip SU cs. STAMPS: Big Flowers SU, used my SU dots impressions folder on the Big Shot, So saffron SU ribbon, white gel pen, and corner rounder.

I love this card and the best thing is it only took me like 10 min to make. I had been thinking about the color combo for a couple of days and then it all came together.

Hope you all like it!
Thanks for looking,

Eli Harris Robinson's heart update

Hey everyone,

Here is the update on little Eli Robinson 25 weeks old now and weighing in at 1 lb 6oz.

Here are the highlights

He is still at risk due to a growth they found inside the left side of his heart.
This growth seems to be hindering the function of a valve (mitrol?) which is causing the left ventricle to not function.
The left ventricle is not working at all.
No infection so I will not need to go on meds.
We will deliver at Vanderbilt and have a new OB and some different cardiologists on hand when Eli is born to assess the situation.
Eli will most likely need surgery when he is born but we still need to get some info from another specialist.

Todd and I are hopeful and are very glad to have a cause for the left ventricle not working and Lord willing a solution. This is going to be a complicated pregnancy and we'll be going to lots of appointments.

So thanks to all of you guys for the prayers and thoughts we need them!!!

We'll keep ya posted on all the happenings.

lots of love,
Beth and Todd
