So I usually wouldn't post something like this but I am truly humbled and greatful for the outcome of the experience and feel like I need to show my gratitude. So you all know that Kaleb is our life. He is so special to us and we would be lost with out him so I feel inclined to share this experience. Last night we put Kaleb to bed as we usually do at 8:00 and I went downstairs to watch the season finale of Grey's Anatomy. Bryson hates that show and usually goes to bed pretty early but for some reason he stayed up with me and watched the whole two hours. When it was over we got up and the dog (P.S we got a little 6wk old puppy on Tuesday) was acting pretty strange and started trying to go upstairs which she's never done. We thought it was weird so Bryson went to put her outside. I was looking over the couch at Bryson and heard a door shut upstairs. We were the only adults there and Kaleb was in his crib. My heart dropped. Bryson and I went running up the stairs. I ran straight into Kaleb's room where he was on his hands and knees. He had a little receiving blanket wrapped around his neck which had somehow became intertwined and was making it hard for him to breath. I hurried and took it off and he started coughing and breathing. It was the scariest experience of my life. It turns out the bathroom door was the one that shut on it's own will. We know Heavenly Father was watching over our little boy and will forever be greatful for that. I thought about it all night and all the events that had happened last night that we usually don't do. If Bryson had gone to bed when he usually did I would have thought it was just him shutting the door and not have checked on Kaleb. Kaleb is doing fine and went right back to bed after a few minutes of crying and woke up happier than usual this morning. It's crazy to think how fast our lives could have changed forever. I am so thankful that we had someone watching over us and it reminded us that He is always watching over us. Sorry this is so long but I felt like I needed to publicly thank Heavenly Father and tell everyone how our faith grew last night because of the event.
