This was so cute that I thought I should share it with everyone: Normally Whitney goes to bed about an hour before Zach goes to bed so putting Zachy to bed is pretty easy. Last night Whitney was having a hard time going down so she was still awake and fussing when we put Zach to bed. So amongst all the chaos of trying to deal with Whitney and put Zach to bed we forgot to say family prayers. Well around 1 am Zach woke up crying. I went in to ask him what was wrong. He kept mumbling something but I couldn't understand him. Finally, he lifted his head up, looked at me and said "I got to say prayer." So, at 1 in the morning we folded our arms, bowed our heads, and Zachy said a prayer. I left the room and he went right back to sleep. That kid is so funny. Of course he would remember in the middle of the night that we forgot to say our prayers. I love that little guy!
Seriously, how cute is this? Zach and I went to get Whitney up from nap and Zach asked to get in Whitney's crib to read books to her. They laid there for like 15 minutes just reading books. It was so special. Some of the happiest moments in my life are watching those two play together. I just love it!

I have been meaning to write this post for weeks but life has just been to busy. So here it is, finally. We took Whitney to Seattle in June to have all of here tests done to make sure that her hemangioma is not affecting her heart or brain. We had all sorts of tests including an MRI, echo cardiogram, and an EKG. We had all these tests done in one day. It was a long rough day for us all but especially for Whitney. She had to me put to sleep for the MRI which was so sad. It was hard watching her be put to sleep but it was even harder watching her wake up. She was so confused to out of it. She couldn't even lift her head. It was like she was a newborn all over again. It was so weird. All the tests for her heart looked good and the MRI looked good but there was one little problem they found. No one really knows if it is a big deal but she has too much space in between her ventricles(I think that's what they are called). Right now our doctor is not too concerned but he thinks she will need another MRI a few months down the road to see if the extra space goes away. Here she is all ready for her MRI:
