Happy 1st Birthday Levi!

Dear Levi,

What a wonderful first year we have spent with you. Today we remember 1 year ago when we first met you face to face and how in love we were! Now you are one year old and have such a precious personality. You like to be held and to cuddle, you are a very fast crawler, you think biting is funny, you don't like green beans or squash, you adore your big brother and have started saying Abby's name. You amaze us with your ability to learn and to love. We are so happy you are in our family and you bring a fresh delight each day.

We are so proud of you and we pray that you will grow to be a young man who loves our Lord and who loves to learn His Word and who follows in His footsteps no matter what! You are a special boy.

We love you Levi! Happy Birthday son...

On his own...

Our second small munchkin has spent the past few days in TN with Grandma and Papa... all on his own! We met them halfway on Sunday where we handed him over for a uniquely special time alone with them. He has been anticipating this trip with great excitement and by the sound of his little voice over the phone he is enjoying every moment!

I am however missing him...

The house is very quiet and although I have one less child to feed, bathe, play with and potty I have not accomplished the things I thought I might while he is away. Oh well.

We head up to meet him tomorrow and spend the weekend with our wonderful family. It will be a welcome break.

Abby has had a good seizure free week! Aside from some very fussy (and late I might add) nights she is making some slow progress.

Our appointment with neurology went well last week and it has been decided that we will get oxygen and a pulse ox monitor in our home. It will be used as needed for days or weekends like we've had in the past 6 weeks where she could benefit from a little extra help. Or should I say that I would benefit from a little extra information and peace of mind. Either way we should be getting them in the next few weeks.

Levi's first Birthday has snuck up on us and we will be celebrating a little early while in TN this week! The thought brings mixed emotions. We are so excited and amazed that our smallest munchkin has already reached this milestone, but a little saddened at the passing of time. He is such a delight and showing more and more personality and spunk with each day.

We are still so in love!
