Baby Maverick

This blog was created to keep family and friends updated on what's going on with the pregnancy, birth, and surgical plan for Maverick. We'll also be able to keep everyone updated during his surgery and recovery and hopefully be able to show you some cute pictures of him, Maddie, Carter and Chloe along the way.

This was the original intent; however, when we started this blog we had no idea the twists and turns our lives would take. Our sweet baby Maverick was born September 12, 2008 with Transposition of the Great Arteries, ASD, and VSD. We expected to have a baby boy to bring home three to four weeks after his surgery. He had numerous complications after his arterial switch and fought through many that would have taken the life from an adult. He passed away February 24, 2009 - without ever coming home.

This blog is now a place I share my feelings, work through the grief, remember Maverick, and try to make sense out of our life without him. I hope in doing so I am giving a name and a face to babies everywhere born with congenital heart defects.

Chloe's haircut

videoWell, Miss Chlo has been very disagreeable about getting her hair brushed lately. Half-way out of frustration I asked her if she wanted to get it cut. She said yes. Here we are. She also requested to have it brown like mine. I told her we couldn't do that. I just love it when they are small and think mom is so cool. I kept her little ponytail. It wasn't quite long enough to send to Locks of Love. Thanks to Miss Jaime for the cute cut. Here's the finished version with gum in her mouth. She was laying in bed with Maddie tonight and Maddie put her arm on Chloe's hair. She quickly told her, "Don't Maddie, that's my new hair."

What a cute haircut Chloe! You look all grown up! Such a pretty girl you are!

I wish my hair looked as good as yours!

Love,
