First off, please pray for my nearly 10-year-old nephew. After showing some signs of diabetes, a doctor visit this morning confirmed that. He’s now in the hospital where they’ll monitor his blood sugar for a couple of days and begin the maintenance procedure. We know he’ll be okay and that he’ll still be the super-active Philip we know and love, but the transition to daily insulin injections and finger-pricks will definitely be tough, as you can imagine.
Christmas…the most MAGICAL time of year!!
What a difference a year makes! Reece really enjoyed Christmas this year and everything leading up to it. She especially enjoyed wagon rides looking at Christmas lights, the fun blow up figures in neighbors’ yards, Christmas trees (including the one in her room which she was VERY proud of), wrapping paper, parties and PJ Day at PDO, and the building and decorating of the gingerbread house. Because my hands are always full and my brain is always overloaded, I only captured a couple of these memories on the cam…
It would make sense, of course, to take some pictures on Christmas Eve and Christmas morning, but that didn’t happen. Actually, we did take a few pictures Christmas morning, but Reece was always moving to fast to get any good ones. We were also rushing Reece between each gift so we could get as much video as we could before the battery on the camcorder died. Ill-prepared? Maybe, but I like to think we’re always too busy having fun to take pictures and good video anyway. 🙂
I bet I can get some good pics of Reece playing with all those toys she got…just give me a few days!
We had a wonderful Christmas with our families who continue to bless us with way too much! We were also so blessed to have my grandmother for another Christmas, and to visit with Con-Con! And just for the record, when asked whose birthday it was, Reece replied, “Baby Jesus.” Awww!
We celebrated another birthday two days later…
…when Rynn turned two months old! At two months, she’s smiling and cooing. She loves her swing, her car seat, and her big sister who always wants to hold her. She is just a sweet, sweet baby and she’s so much a part of our family that I don’t know what we did without her. Sweet thing is so patient too, as big sister often gets way more attention. Baby girl waits to nurse until Mama gets big sister settled with a snack, drink, and some form of entertainment. Sometimes those feedings get interrupted while Mama fixes things for Big Sister or has to discipline her. In fact, Big Sister seems to cry more these days than Baby girl…what’s up with that!? Anyway, back to Rynn…what a sweetheart…
Oh, and one more thing…it was Christmas-time ten years ago that Scott and I met and fell in love. Actually, we just met then. It took a while for the love thing to happen. Happy ten year anni, Scott…did you remember? 🙂
