Skipping Ahead...

I have had the best of intentions to fill in the last several months but I have concluded that is unrealistic and I need to move forward. It was a very long summer but we are getting through it and coming out stronger. The kid's are great...Will is growing so fast, he has doubled his birth weight and added 6+ inches to his height.
Addie becomes more engaged with him every day and it is precious to see. She was being quite the big sister while mom fixed his bottle and read him "The Napping House" one of our favorite books.
Will is changing every day, he has already cut his first tooth!

Addie Feeding Her Brother

Addie has really turned into a great helper and big sister, she is very gentle and loving.

Father's Day 2009

Jonah and the kids enjoying some time outside, it was a nice the shade!

Addie has found a new passion, princesses! Her current favorites include Sleeping Beauty (pictured below in her carriage), Cinderella, Ariel and Giselle (from the movie Enchanted which she would watch 24 hours a day if she could). I never thought my almost 3 year old would be singing about true loves kiss!
One blessing from our ordeal was that Nana flew out to help us for 2 weeks and we were SO sad to see her go! The unfortunate part was that we didn't get too many pictures but I loved seeing this so much that I had to include it.

Jonah has settled into being a dad of two better than I ever could have expected or hoped for.

A trial to live through...

I am not going to spend too much time or space on the ordeal we faced with my collapsed lung, however, I do want to say THANK YOU to everyone who helped us during those weeks of chaos(chaos to us and a complete plan to God). The meals, the babysitters, the visitors, the kind thoughts and prayers meant so much to us. I always thought that I had a pretty good handle on life's blessings and how fortunate I was to lead the life I do. I can tell you now that I had no idea. God gave me the opportunity to see the unconditional love of family and friends in a way I hope I never forget. Life is returning to some new form of normal but I will never forget this summer or all of the lessons in life that it brought.

Addie & Will

The first day Addie came to the hospital she wasn't so sure of all the surroundings, however, the second day we were moved to the new wing of the hospital with much bigger rooms and less "medical" stuff so she was much more relaxed. Addie took to being a big sister right away!

Aren't they precious!!!!
