No News is Good News

Hello everyone! Sorry it has been so long since I last checked in. Thank you to the many who emailed me to check in on me. You are right...it isn't really like me to go so long without having SOMETHING to say! :-)

The thing is...I don't really have much to say! :-) We are doing well and keeping busy with typical family kind of stuff. We are just taking time to enjoy each other and the moment we are in. I will try to post some photo updates later. The boys are getting so big!

Sunday after church we decided to take them to the movies to see Madagascar 2. We were all sitting there and Ben and I were sharing a bag of Skittles and each time he would take one he would hold it up to me (in the dark) and say, "look ma, an orange one!" The first few times I praised him for knowing his colors (though they could really have been any color!) and then I began to just nod after about the 20th Skittle. Ben proceeded to grab my cheeks and turn my face to his and he looked right in my eyes and said "Mom, talk to me, use your words!" I almost peed my pants! It was too funny!

These are the kinds of things we are reveling in right now. Just the every day. Remembering to praise God and give thanks in all things. We are keeping our eyes fixed on Him and looking forward to what God has in store for us!

Many of you have asked when our next ultrasound is. It is a week from today, Tuesday January 27th at 4 p.m. EST. We would appreciate your prayers that day and the days leading up to that day. Asher's first birthday is quickly approaching and it is hard not to relive the memories of where we were at this time last year and not compare them with where we stand today. God continues to remind us that He is certainly doing a new thing and this little one who is dancing around inside of me is his newest gift to us. Our hearts still ache, but are filled with peace and hope.

Thank you all for loving us and for checking in. I promise I will keep you posted!

Good to 'hear' from you Kristy! I too, was curious when the next ultrasound would be. Remembering you often and praying for your peace of mind as this new year comes to be!!! Have you read the sweet book called "Let's Go On a Mommydate" by Karen Kingsbury? My son loves to read this book and he is 4.5y. Any special moment spent just us, he calls a Mommydate and it touches my heart that he treasures the time (almost) as much as I do! I am wondering if Luke and Ben might like it too!

Thanks for the update, Kristy! I know what you mean about not having much to say. For me, sometimes I feel like I do have something to say but it just feels like a repitition of what I've said before, so I keep it to myself.

I'm praying for you as Asher's birthday approaches. Jenna's heaven day is approaching rapidly too.

Your boys sound so cute! I had a moment yesterday where mine made me laugh so hard! I can't share it though - you kinda had to BE there.

Anyhow, HUGS...thanks for always leaving such sweet, encouraging comments on my blog...

That is hysterical!

I can totally relate to the nearing birthdays. I have them scattered throughout the year. One in Feb, July, and Dec. Each year is getting easier. I am not sure if it is because I am busy running after our two boys now or what but I do remember the first birthdays were always the hardest!

you are doing great allowing HIM into those places to receive full healing!

Blessings!

It is so good to hear from you Kristy and that you are just enjoying life and the family. I love Ben's comment to you about using your words. They truly notice everything even when we give them "lip service". I continue to pray for you sweet friend. I know God has the most wonderful plans for you and can't wait for them to be revealed.

Love and Hugs, Laurie
PS. I have started posting pictures on my blog if you have the time to visit. I know you are busy:)
Love you bunches.

Thank you so much for taking a moment to visit my little winking boy, Caleb. Your comment made my day! It is a pleasure to "meet" you :) Your little boys are such miracles. What a priviledge to be the mother to such precious little people! I can so relate to waiting and worrying...you have such courage and faith. You're in my heart!

And thank you for the Congrats.

Kristy I've been following your blog since you gave birth to Asher and since I have triplets, I've been busy lately but just got on tonight and see that you are pregnant. That is so awesome! God is so good and I just wanted you to know that I will be praying for the perfect baby to come and complete your family and that God would pour out abundant blessings over your family. I am so excited for you and can't wait to hear about the next US! Take care of yourself and keep believing for good things.
