Little Rays of Sunshine

We discovered last week that Destiny cannot track objects with her left eye. A total "A HA!" Moment for us. She is now wearing the cutest glasses known to man during school and is already improving in her school work and reading. Yahoo!!!!
Jon is doing great! He's now cutting with regular scissors during school, is learning how to write his name, and can actually draw! Instead of just straight up and down lines, he's drawing trees and Mickey Mouse!
Staci is growing and growing! She's still working on potty training, but is totally in love with her daddy!



AND......



We found out today that the little bundle of joy that has caused us so much worry and illness is a stinkin BOY!!! Of course!!


His name is Samuel Lucas and will be called Luke. We got to watch him move and shake, suck his thumb, and clasp his hands together. Holy cow.

After so many years. After the infertility, the miscarriage, the surgery, and now the hyperemesis, I had convinced myself that something was going to be wrong. He was going to be too small for his age or be missing something. But he's perfect. Measuring right on with our due date. He weighs a staggering 9 ounces!!! I don't think I've ever been happier than I am right now. Our Christmas tree is full of little things the kids have made. Presents are stacked in the garage waiting to be wrapped and put under the tree for excited children on Christmas Eve. I'm geting ready to pick up my two oldest kids from school. Another is napping not ten feet away from me. I can't believe how my life has turned out.

With four kids! A big happy house. Congratulations.

Thank you for your comment this week. I loved what you said about how those words build regret. I'm glad that you're without regrets. And I hope you guys have a Merry Christmas--you have a lot to celebrate.

WOOOOOOo-HOOOOOOOOOOO!!! It's a boy!!! YEAH!!!! That's so exciting! Sorry you've been so sick though... hyperemesis is HORRIBLE! (Remember I'm an L&D nurse, so I"ve seen my fair share). Hope the next couple of months fly by for you!
