Doin some switchin

Today was a pretty productive day, for a Sunday that it. I've been wanting to change Jaxson's room around a little. His bed was in front of the window and the changing table on the other wall. Well I wanted his bed away from the light and the changing table by the light so I could see. So we did some switchin. I tried to get a pic of his room, but I kept getting a wierd flash. And there's nowhere to stand to get the whole room, but I wanted you to see my decorating skills. My first room I got to decorate, and we kind of had to because when we moved in it was pink. Ya, we can't have that for our boy, and monkey's are kind of his thing. I had a book mark that was a baby orangutang, and its hair was sticking straight up, soo Jax.

We also wanted to get a table put together that we bought Mondo for his birthday. He got the idea when we went to visit sweet Zoey. Her brother Jake had a table with all of his lego's on it. Mondo wanted one too. So we bought a small table from Ikea, painted it black to match his pirate ship bed, and wala, a lego table.

Notice the video camera. We let him have our old camera. He makes lego videos. So cute.

His pirate ship bed. Don't mind the mess, we are in the process of cleaning, and most of his lego's haven't made it to the table yet.

We did go swimming today. Sorry, no pics, it will have to wait again until Friday when we go swimming at my aunts. Daddy didn't want to take his nice camera to a pool were there are a lot of people. He loves his camera and doesn't want it stolen.

Jax is doing better today, not quite so out of it. Yeah. I was watching extreme home makeover and they had this Christian singer. He sang He's my son. I've heard the song before, but listening to it again touched my heart. Its like it was written for us. A dad praying for his son, wanting to take all the pain away from him. Saying we've done all we can and its in his arms now. I want to do a montage for Jax with it, but that will take a while and I wanted to post the song for you. So this video is another little boy, I was hoping to find the lyrics on You tube but couldn't. So here ya go. Go get the tissue box first and listen closely to the words.

Here you go!

Navigation: M \ Mark Schultz \ He's My Son

I'm down on my knees again tonight
I'm hoping this prayer will turn out right
See there is a boy that needs Your help
I've done all that I can do myself
His mother is tired
I'm sure You can understand
Each night as he sleeps
She goes in to hold his hand
And she tries not to cry
As the tears fill her eyes

Can You hear me?
Am I getting through tonight?
Can You see him?
Can You make him feel all right?
If You can hear me
Let me take his place somehow
See, he's not just anyone
He's my son

Sometimes late at night I watch him sleep
I dream of the boy he'd like to be
I try to be strong and see him through
But God who he needs right now is You
Let him grow old
Live life without this fear
What would I be
Living without him here
He's so tired and he's scared
Let him know that You're there


Can You hear me?
Can You see him?
Please don't leave him
He's my son

Oh my goodness... I am in tears. What a touching song and video. The end really got to me. What a little angel.
Jax's room is darling. So is Mondo's! So glad he's feeling a bit better today!

That is my favorite song. I put a photo montage together for Carter's six month birthday (you can see it on my September 30 2008 post). The words are exactly what a lot of us are feeling - especially with hospital visits and all.

I love Mondo's bed - and what a great idea for a lego table. Jaxson's room is way cute too - love the monkey theme!

I have heard that song so many times before and I tell you have finally made me listen to the words and truly understand its meaning. So do you know for sure when in August you will be down this way??

I love that song! We actually talked with Mark Schultz manager awhile back about trying to get him to perform at our event, (of course he was already booked) but was an amazing person.

Great work on the monkey room! Love the lego table idea, I could see Ryker liking that!
Give our big guy hugs and kisses!

Hey girlie was just gonna post the lyrics but someone beat me to it...We love the song too...Mark Shultz is an amazing man! We bought that CD years ago when it first came out and still love it!

And yep! I actually watched the Bronch on Jophie. His ped and I are good friends. She came up to the PICU that night cause she knew they were gonna do it. Our PICU rooms are clear plexi...I call em "fish bowl" rooms....We had a nurses station right out from his room...(NOT a good thing when your in the PICU cause you know your the sickest) LOL....

Anyway, we sat at the nurses station and watched...I was shakin' like a leaf....VERY VERY hard/traumatic on Jophie...He was near death anyway but they said without the bronch he was gonna die...Some choice eh?

Really do NOT wanna experience that one again....

Talk soon...
