Keep Calm and Hop(e) On

I have seen many cute variations of the stay calm printables. For a long time, my favorite was “Stay Calm and Eat a Cupcake.”  Since I’d do better to stay away from cupcakes for a while forever,  I think the following is a good alternative quote.

Hopping – a good exercise, right?
So, is Hoping.

Mr. Gabe has been having some weird symptoms in the last three days. We’ve been to the Dr. with him and at this point we don’t have any real answers, just a lot more questions.  One unrelated (we think) piece of this week’s puzzle is the size of Gabe’s noggin.  We have been on a three month break from our routine neuro check ups. In the interim, our pediatrician has been actively following Gabe’s head measurements.  Based on this week’s stats, he felt like it was time to for a more thorough investigation of just what is going on in Gabe’s head.  Today we are waiting for appointments to be scheduled and test results to come back.  We are also playing, napping, eating, stretching, cutting teeth, running children back and forth to school, and making cupcakes  (uh! oh!) for daddy’s birthday. 

Trying our best to Keep Calm and Hop Hope on!


  1. Katie,
    I am hoping on for you as well!! I hope you guys get answers very soon. The waiting seems like part of the hardest part of all of this. Give little Gabe lots of squeezes for us and go ahead and have a cupcake too!! You deserve it. Better yet, maybe we need an impromtu coffee chat:)

  2. Thinking of you guys! Waiting is truly a test of a mother's patience. Praying and Hoping!

  3. Hoping and praying for the answers and continued healing and growing for your sweet little man!

  4. I am praying so hard for Gabe and for the docs to know what they are looking for and to find everything they need to know to help him. I know I am not around enough but I do watch and pay attention and my prayers are never ending for you guys and Gabe.


We appreciate all of your comments and love.
Encouraged by you,
Gabe & his Momma
