Dont mind the food and messy hair.

Konner before haircut, w/ justin beiber style

So grown up with his new haircut.

Sorry these next pictures are sideways. Blogger has been frustrating me lately. There is no way to fix them. For some reason every other time I try to upload pictures this is what happens. So please be patient and sorry for the mess up. 

Konner is 13 months old and is such an active boy. He has recently found all the fun things behind the drawers and cabinets in the kitchen. Fun for him but not so much for me. lol Along with turning 1 Konner also got his first haircut. He looks so much older now and I kinda miss his Justin Beiber hair. He is a fun energetic baby. He loves his brothers so very much. He also loves when his daddy walks into the room. His whole face lights up and he reaches out for him while saying daddy in the sweetest voice. Now he loves me too! He hates when I leave the room and always needs me to cuddle him to sleep. He is our baby and he is growing up way to fast! Here are some pictures from the past month.

Almost scan time again.

As I sit here right now I cant help but thinking about our week ahead. These times are always nerve wrecking and so is the week after. You never know what kind of news your going to get. I cant believe this is Konner's 4th set of scans Post treatment. I wouldn't even be able to tell you how many he had during treatment. It was just that much. Every time he has to be put to sleep and that alone is scary. Its so heartbreaking holding your 1 year old while he is being put to sleep for something. But Konner is a champ! This week is more evasive than the 2 previous scans. He will have the MIBG test. and I am glad they are finally doing one.

I also cant help but think about infant hospital gowns. Well Konner just barely fits into them. they are pretty big. When Konner was actually in the hospital he had to be in only a diaper because they didnt even come close to fitting him. He would also get so cold. So i went to target one day and got him those baby gowns. Well I need to make him some of his own since he will be having scans done for the next 10 years. Of course I will make him them only till he is about 5 or so. But if any of you happen to know a place that makes small hospital gowns let me know.

I also wanted to thank you all for following Konner's story and for your constant prayers. Prayers work miracles and I know that Konner is one. Thank You.

Scans are scheduled.

So Konner has his scans scheduled for March 16 & 17. On March 16 he has to go to Nuclear Medicine and receive a special injection for his MIBG test. This injection is so special that they have to order it and once they open it they must inject it right away and the scan for it has to be done 14 hours after. You can find out more info here MIBG scan . So On the 17 Konner will go in at 7:30 to check in and then will start his MRI scans at 8:30. He will be put to sleep the whole time and at 11:30 they will do the MIBG scan. Konner will be put to sleep for approximately 4-5 hours. The MIBG test will see how many Neuroblastoma cells he has. With this very important test we will be able to see how much of his tumor is active and if there are any calcified spots on it. All prayers will be needed that day! Thank You all for your love and support!

And the end result! He had such a great birthday with family and close friends. He was a bit crabby but as soon as that sugar hit he was happy as can be lol. Konner has hit a milestone and a very important one to us. We love everything about him. We are honored to have him be apart of our family. We are grateful for all that he has taught us. 

We Love you Lil' Peanut. Thank you for a year of growing shared with happiness and strength.
