6 years old

Feel free to roll your eyes over this post. Yes it is about my dog!!

This cute little guy turned 6 years old yesterday!! I really do love this dog, even if my neighbors hear me cussing him out for running through the garden or barking at the neighbor kids! You love your kids right?? Roy really is just another member of the family!! So Happy Birthday to Roy!

Roys birthday is the day before Kurt and my wedding anniversary. So today marks 6 years that Kurt and I have been married!! YAHOO!! We have had some crazy years and some really great years and I look forward to many more of each!!

Family News

The last few years at the Heath house have been...somewhat...well down right crazy! We have had lots happen in our lives and our most recent happening is that we are moving. Kurt left AT&T the end of January and was hired on with Express Locations the first of May. He will be working as the store manager in the Layton Hills Mall selling T-Mobile. He has already been working up there since May 1st and really likes this new company and the people he works with. I am so proud of him and thankful for all he does for our family! I have stayed in Richfield, trying to sell our house. Which is proving to be a huge task! I just keep praying that it will sell so we can get moved and be together as a family. Gavin mainly wants to move so he can go to "bagoon" or as most of us call it Lagoon. He said that the for sale sign says "for sale to go to bagoon." He cracks me up!

We are really excited about this new adventure and we really need it. I think this will be a good move for us and bring us closer as a family.

Bye Bye Bottle

It seems like since we have fixed Jenna's aspirating problem, she has just grown and developed so much more! Her little personalitly is shining through so much lately, she laughs so much more and is babbling a lot more too. On Thursday Jenna sucked through a straw for the first time and has been ever since! No more bottle!!!! I am so proud of her. I know it seems like a small feat to most of you, but for me it was like winning and Oscar! I think I texted and told everybody I could think of. She is also eating table food with out me having to puree it!! Double woot!

I am so amazed at this sweet little girl...she teaches me a lot! has been a while.

About a month ago I took Jenna to see a pulmonologist up at Primary Childrens to see if we could find out why she keeps getting pneumonia. I loved this doctor, he was awesome (as are most the docs there). He gave me some information and wanted to start Jenna on Prevacid just in case she was silently refluxing and also a steroid inhaler for asthma. He said a lot of times if they do these two things it helps the lungs to be stronger. He also ordered a swallow study for the next week. My mom came with me and we took Jenna. It was very interesting, they had Jenna drink and eat different consistency of food including fluid all while watching her on x ray to see where the food went when she swallowed. Every time they gave her liquid it dropped right to her trachea and then into her lung. She was aspirating...silently. More than likely on every bottle she has had in the last year or so. She did fine with all the other food though. So now we have to use this stuff to thinken her bottles to the consistency of nectar. Easy fix!
