Yesterday was such a special day for us... Blessing day! We were able to bless them in our home, which was so nice and intimate. Matt is such an amazing father and did such a great job. I haven't really been able to attend church for about 8 months, which is crazy. I couldn't go at the end of my pregnancy, and now we obviously can't take the kids together.So Matt has gone, and I actually went today, but I really missed feeling spirit like that. And I sure felt it last night. I love my little Eternal Family.
I guess I have a little catching up to do since Halloween. I feel like I've had no free time since then. But I have 3 little excuses. Cute, laughing, babbling, spitting, pooping excuses :)
How are my babies already SIX MONTHS OLD?! I don't believe it. I was telling Matt last night how I remember sitting in the NICU thinking that we would for sure be in there for the rest of our lives. Here we are, 6 months later, having our first Christmas as a family of 5, with 3 healthy babies. 'Blessed' does not begin to describe how I feel. I'm just keeping my fingers crossed that everyone STAYS healthy. the fact that they are pretty much on lock-down still should help. Jones is a little Hot Mess with his kidney stones, excema and a few other little things (my poor baby) but over all every one is doing great. They are chunky little, almost 13 lb, babies.
Cash is babbling like CRAZY. I mean, you can hear him across the house because he's yelling (a happy yell). All the time. I love it. But good luck trying to watch a movie with him in the same room. Sterling is starting to follow in his footsteps. Jones has his moments but he is definitely my quiet kid, so when he does get excited and lets out a big squeal it's my favorite thing.
I want this stage to last forever. Mostly because #1. They think i'm funny and #2. They love it when I sing to them. I have a feeling that neither of those things will last forever. I'm trying to soak it all up.
Here are a few pictures from their first Christmas. I'll post some catch up pictures soon, they've changed so much since October.
