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!
