Let the Adventures Begin!

We've been quiet on the blog for the last few months, but that's a good thing! It means for us life has been happening with no bad surprises and Jude is healing from his surgery.  It's been 3 months and 2 days since his Glenn surgery and he has come so far! Some positive milestones over the last 3 months include:

  • Visiting the capital of Texas - Austin
  • Jude eating at his first outdoor restaurant (we still haven't done indoors with him yet)
  • Visiting the home of Blue Bell Ice Cream in Brenham, TX
  • Jude had his first zoo visit at the Houston Zoo
  • Josiah finished Kindergarten and Alex finished 5th Grade - yay for the summer!
  • Jesse and I got to have our first date night since Jude was born
  • Blackberry picking at a local farm
  • Taking a trip to the beach at Galveston Island - family portraits, sandcastle lessons, exploring the tall ship Elissa
  • Celebrated our 15th wedding anniversary
  • Our first family visit here in Texas that didn't revolve around a doctor appointment or surgery, so we just got to hang out and enjoy each other's company
  • Alex took Volleyball lessons
  • Toured the Texas Sculpture Park in Frisco, TX
  • Josiah lost his 2nd tooth
  • Jude is walking!
  • Jude made it to the 20th percentile in his weight and is gaining and growing like he should since his heart isn't having to work as hard
  • Meeting friends for a walk at the park (Jude's first playdate!)
Yesterday we embarked on what we be our longest traveling adventure so far...a road trip to Cape Cod!

We'll be posting all about here when we return, but if you want to follow along you can join us at Instagram at #ourheartadventures or on Facebook @ourheartadventures.
