Houston funnies and and updates!

Houston is soooo stinking funny. He changed schools last week and he has been a wealth of funnies about the whole transition.

The hubby and I felt like heels when we figured this jewel out.....The hubby and I asked Houston who his best friend was in his class. He told us "Eweston" (Houston). We ofcourse thought he was misunderstanding us...he still has issues processing stuff sometimes. Well we thought he was trying to be funny at first. Then we decided he had an invisible friend after he started talking about "The Other Houston." Well fast forward a week and I am dropping Houston off and I see a cubbie with Houston C. and think why do they have his middle intial on there. I look right next to it and you guessed it....there was Houston B. There is another Houston in his class :P It never even entered Jeremy and I's mind. We don't hear the name often and no teacher mentioned it :P

Oh well.

Houston is loving his new school. Weight lifted from my shoulders! They did a cute little "Preschool Circus." I took lots of pics..I will upload them soon.

Other news......well it isn't news it's just random thoughts. Have you all noticed more homeless people in your area? It breaks my heart. Today I was driving by and I saw the saddest looking guy with a sign that simply said "Hungry." I felt like God was telling me " Go get him Food." I went to Dollar General and got him some snacks, crackers, beef jerky, and a few other things that I thought may would keep him full and some gaterade to keep him hydrated. I was kind of nervous to give the stuff to hime because I wasn't sure if he had been drinking or something. I went and gave him the food, I didn't have Houston with me. His eyes lit up when he saw the $10 or so in food I got for him. It broke my heart. He was so sincerly grateful, he kept telling me "God Bless you." I am still sad about how "Broken" he looked. :( I counted 7 other homeless people on the way home :( It is getting worse and I fear it will get even worse before it gets better with the economy.

Sorry for the random ramblings. It was just on my mind. :(

I will update more later...blogger is having issues ;)

Remember tomorrow!

Stillbirth Awareness and Research Act

Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day: Take Action

October 15th is National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day in the United States. More than 25,000 children are stillborn in the United States every year leaving mothers, entire families and communities devastated. Estimates of the rate of occurrence of stillbirth make it at least as common as autism.

Stillbirth is not an intractable problem. Greater research would likely significantly reduce it's incidence, but good research requires good data. H.R. 5979: Stillbirth Awareness and Research Act is under consideration by Congress. This proposed bill would standardize stillbirth investigation and diagnosis, thus providing more data for the needed research. Better research means fewer children born still.

On October 15th, remember the thousands of unfinished children lost and the families who remain to grieve them. Honor them by taking action. Let's help pass H.R. 5979.

Action Steps

Step 1. Use Your Blog to Enlist Others-Copy the contents of this entire post and publish it on your blog immediately.
GOAL: Enlist 10 of your readers to spread the word

Step 2. Use Your E-mail to Enlist Others-E-mail 5 bloggers and ask them (nicely and in an unspammy way) to publish these action steps on their blog. Consider contacting celebrity bloggers, political bloggers, medical bloggers, or bloggers who are not part of your reading community.
GOAL: Enlist 3 bloggers outside of your normal blog sphere to spread the word in other online communities.

Step 3. Help Pass the Stillbirth Awareness and Research Act-By October 15th, publish a post on your blog supporting H.R. 5979 Stillbirth Awareness and Research Act. For maximum impact, title your post: "Stillbirth Awareness and Research Act."
GOAL: 1,000,000 Google results on October 15th when that term is searched for. Currently, Google only returns 20,400 pages - most of which have nothing to do with the bill.

Regular updates!!

Lets see I have been oh so has been miserable. I have had the lymph node eventually absess and infection spread. Of course since my immune system was done I ended up getting more sick. Yeah, not fun.

Finally like 7 meds and three shots later I am not running a crazy fever :P

I would be grateful for any spare prayers ;)

Houston is starting a new school tomorrow. I feel bad for him. He was having a problem being handsy and keeping his attention so he he swapping to the school where there are more aids in the class. Please say a little prayer that school goes well for him. I am begging ;)

He has gotten so funny. His speech has gotten so much better. The teacher thinks speechwise he should be pretty well caught up in by the end of the school year :) She says he has made more progress than most of the kids we are so thankful for that.

Anyway, funny recent Houston sayings....

He told us the other day that they learned about Danger and Safety. I ended up stubbing my toe the other night and kind of whimpered. Houston asked me if he needed to call "991, and if it was an Emergency." LOL

He then told me they would send the police to arrest the bad guys or the firemen who put out fires and got cats...LOL

He is sooo stinkin cute.

He tells his daddy every night that he is his "Bessie Buddy" (Best Buddy). He then says he is "Jade's Baby." Aw!
