Eli loves the snow and is really enjoying our time in Alaska. Yesterday, it was 15 degrees so we went outside to play. Chase loved it for about 10 minutes. Once Chase went back inside, Eli and I played hockey on the homemade ice rink, went sledding and had a snow fight. We had so much fun!!!

It is hard to believe that Chase is almost 18 months old!! He is getting so big and the past year and a half has gone by so quickly. He is so much fun and loves playing with Elijah. He repeats everything and says about 20 words on his own. We received a pretty good report at his last cardiologist visit. His aortic valve is leaking a little more now that it was a year ago so he is now on a medication to prevent the leaking from getting worse. We have struggled this cold/flu season a bit, but it has not been too bad! Chase had pneumonia and was hospitalized for 2 days. He recovered quickly. Little Chase is so strong and is a fighter!! After his hospital stay, Chase had a severe allergic reaction to something. His pediatrician feels like it was a reaction to penicillin. I am not 100% convinced yet. ; ) We stopped his amoxicillin which he has been on since he was about 3 weeks old and are waiting to start another antibiotic until further instruction from his cardiologist.
