Merry Christmas and Happy 2012! Christmas was so much fun this year as the boys are now old enough to understand it a little bit better and of course, get very excited about it. Thanks to incredibly generous family & friends, the boys had plenty of gifts to open, so we spread them out over the entire day of the 25th. Naturally, there were lots of cars, trucks, and all things boy…with a few Lightning McQueen/Cars related presents thrown in as well! We thoroughly enjoyed a special day of celebrating the birth of our Saviour together with wonderful family & friends–doesn’t get any better than that.
Aiden is (finally) nearly recovered from surgery and doing much better with his O2 requirements. We have been able to reduce his constant breathing treatments so they are less frequent, and he is sounding and feeling much better, although he has been a little junky and had a little dry cough the past week. He is making huge progress in his occupational therapy, and is also doing very well with his feeding therapy (eating yogurt, chocolate pudding, etc., and making progress with learning how to handle textures). We are praying that he will stay healthy and hoping that his new meds will help keep this winter from being a repeat of the past 3 years.
Ethan and Evan are growing and getting bigger every single day. They are writing their letters and learning how to read, which they are very excited about! Of course, they keep us on our toes with lots of interesting questions as they are trying to figure out life & the world around them. Both have had ear & sinus infections in the past couple of weeks due to an ear tube that became blocked and has started to come out, but otherwise and doing well and enjoying life.
We are so thankful for each of you and your continued support and prayers, and pray many blessings for you and your family in 2012.
