In April, 2010, when Andrew was 2 1/2, a tumor was discovered behind his eye. The tumor was removed, but it was found to be an aggressive cancer. He endured seven months of chemo and six weeks radiation. In December of 2010, the day after his last treatment, he was rushed to the ER with an almost fatal bacterial infection. He survived.

He is now seven-years-old!! I don't visit here much, because during the ordeal, this is where I dumped everything--my rage, my fear, my sadness, my ugly, my hope, my everything. But I want all of you who supported and prayed for us to hear his updates. You helped me survive, and I am deeply thankful. Every once in awhile, I will check in to let you know how he's doing. Please continue to pray that cancer will never return to his body. Thank you.

It's a bird...

Faster than a speeding bullet,

More powerful than a locomotive,

Able to leap tall buildings in a single bound,

It's a bird!

It's a plane!

(okay so I missed the plane)

It's Superman!

Superman, Man of Steel, Superman.

We haven't left the house all week without a costume. 
And, Andrew learned to ride his tricycle. 

(except the part where I have to take off this one-piece costume every time he needs to use the bathroom...that part, not so fun.)




  1. Cutest. Superman. Ever. Ever.

  2. LOVE IT! My son would adore hanging out with your Superman.

  3. Funny thing, Spiderman lives at my house. But in this case, Spiderman goes incognito most of the time. The suit only comes out for "special occasions". I definitely don't envy you the bathroom stuff.

  4. This is such a cute and fun post! That first one of him is my favorite but again the post is really cute.

  5. I love the picture of Andrew concentrating on the trike! He makes a great Superman!

  6. Adorable! Such a fun post!

  7. He sure is a Superman (boy)!

  8. He is an awesome Superman! I think he and Jackson look so similar with their blond fuzz! Jack's is growing soooo fast. I didn't realize they were so close in age. I read through a few posts---all of your boys are so handsome! Also--I think I have stayed in that same hotel in California ;) Don't you love being able to do the normal, fun, family things again??

  9. Whoohoo love your superman and i LOVED that you missed the plane! I almost fell of my chair laughing!

    Thanks!!!!! Hahahahaha....


  10. awwwwwwww...nice superman fun! It' my first time to join, hope you can check out mine HERE. Thanks!

  11. I love all of his costumes! Reminds me of my little guy who isn't so little anymore. :(

    I also love the addition of the bird and the plane!

  12. Oh my gosh - I love this! So cute :D and OY - the bathroom... yeah, I could see that getting old fast!

  13. Bear was sooo in to this post- look Mama it's Superman! I told him yes indeed, Andrew is Superkid :) Not only was this sweet sweet sweet but I laughed at your -trick of the eye- plane shot ;)

  14. oh and PS- The Jesse post was such a great read. Loved it!

  15. I agree, a very fun post! I thought it was just girls who had dressing up mania, good to know boys get it too. Around here it is all tutus and leotards and getting out of the house in "normal" clothes takes a lot of persuasion :-)

  16. So great! I love the leaping tall buildings shot!
