It's Monkey time!


Monkey Man as one of Grayson's fans calls him just turned 4 days old! We are so proud of our little monkey man. The last few hours have been really tough. We are just going to enjoy him and celebrate life right now. It's tough to do sometimes, but we know what Gray Man's fate is. He's here for a purpose and when that purpose is fulfilled he will get to play with Kinsey.

Today we had a special birthday party for Grayson. Kristi didn't even know what we were doing. She took a video that we will hopefully put on youtube soon so everyone can see Gray Man's party.

Happy 4 day Birthday Little Monkey Man.

A special thanks to Mark from Pediatric Specialists. He brought us a compressed oxygen tank with 100 1lbs of oxygen. Gray has his own oxygen bar now! The new tank is not dependent on electricity and we can fill his new portable tank straight from the big stand up. Mark told us the tank should last about a week. We can't thank him enough. Little man said we could pay him with anything but monkeys!

Happy 4th Day Birthday, Grayson! You are truly a blessing!

Taylor and Kristi, thank you for sharing your story. Each post reminds me of what it means to fully rely on God. I admire your courage and continue to pray for you, your family, and of course Grayson!

Happy 4th Birthday, Grayson. This is Aunt Judy, and I have been keeping up with you all morning. Everyone here in Hattiesburg is asking about you and praying for you. We love you and your mom and dad.

God bless you all. Keep holding and talking to Grayson all day long. He is a true blessing to both of you. And you must be special people in that God trusted him with you. We lost our Emma Rose after 32 days two months ago. Through loving her our lives changed so much. Don't be afraid to cry and share your feelings with each other. Emma promoted a closeness in our entire family that while we'd had it before, it was beginning to slip away. By the way, he's beautiful. Take lots of pictures and memorize that face. I'll keep on reading your blog and probably crying along with you. Sherry McCormick, Va. Praying that the day soon comes that there are no more Trisomy 18 babies. God Bless.

Isn't it just so hard to celebrate life amidst the storm? I always felt that way too.

Celebrating with you for another day with Gray Man!

Happy 4th Day Grayson! Prayers are going up from Dallas for you and your parents now! Praying for many more minkeys for you!

Taylor and Kristi, I know you have got to be calling them "minkeys" and only using the word monkey on the blog so as not to create confusion. Thanks so much for the updates. Much love to y'all.
