31 for 21....day 7

Jonathan & Madison November 2000

Madison and Jonathan are only 18 months apart. In the beginning that didn't seem to be such a large gap....that's what our girls are. Over the past almost 10 years a lot has changed. Madison has grown so much he is 11 1/2 yrs. old, 5 ft tall, and wears a size 9 1/2 shoe. His growth isn't just physical but the mental as well. Then there is Jonathan.....sigh....growing and changing just not at the speed Madison has......he's growing the Jonathan way. Even though he is going to be 10 in just 2 days he is 50lbs...with the help of his feeding tube ^^thankful for that^^ wears a size 6/7 clothes, size 12 1/2 shoe, still wears pull-ups (Yes, I wanted to cry as I wrote that & some days scream...but that won't help) I'm happy that he is growing, even if it's at Jonathan speed.
Jonathan's development mentally well, I'll just say it's exactly where God wants it to be :)

I'm thankful and proud of Madison and Jonathan, not one more than the other. For they both are unique and crafted in HIS image.
