Gonzalez's Heart

Things are going much better now. Jaden has been steadily gaining weight again and he is getting back up to his normal feedings. He still has a hard time consistently getting down what he should be and he is having some reflux still. He is as happy as ever and is getting ready to start running. He wants to just get up go. He is always trying to sit up or stand up and if he is not doing that, he is usually kicking his legs. Robyn said she did not think she has seen him with out him kicking his legs all the time.

We are going to the cabin this weekend. It will be nice to have a weekend away. Ashley started school this week and has loved every second of it. She is a little wound up as she is readjusting to the new schedule. Ethan will start pre-school next Tuesday. The school did have a play date for the kids today for an hour to get to know each other. That was really cool. Ethan will be going Monday through Friday until 11:30am. Jaden and I will finally get some really good alone time together. I am really looking forward to that.

Because Jaden had such a bad reaction to his immunizations, I decided to do a lot of research and ask a lot of people how they felt about them. In my research I have found some really disturbing things. There are so many negatives to getting them and so many unknowns. Cancer has been linked to them as well as many things such as Autism, ADD, ADHD to name a few. When a child just receives the shots, others around them are more able to get that particular illness. Many of the shots are live, therefore can be spread more easily. Plus they say if you are already fighting with something that it is sooo hard on your body to add this to it. So I will be doing a lot more research because we feel that we may not give our kids any more immunizations. We are praying about it and will not move forward with it until we know forsure. If anyone has questions and would like to know more, feel free to ask me.

Hope you all enjoy your long weekend. We will post pictures from the weekend.

Love, Steph

Hi Steph,
I am glad to hear that Jaden is doing so well. What a tough little guy. It sounds Etahn and Ashley had an exciting week with starting school.
Evan is ready to go back too. We go next week and meet his teacher and he will start on Thursday.
Have a great time at the cabin.

Hey guys,
If you have any more questions on the shots, give me a call. We have opted out of them also after our son had a severe reaction at 6 months old. I have tons of info. on it and would be happy to share it with you.
