Every time I think about Aaron and Andrew, I am overwhelmed with emotion and thankfulness. I look at them and think, "Why am I so blessed?" I have continued to think about this question and started to contemplate the sacrifice God made by giving up his son. I wonder... could I do that? I would like to think so, but I don't think I could stand back and watch my son be hung on a cross, mocked, and die, all for the sake of other people. Thinking about the sacrifice of giving up your son to save the sinful is beyond my understanding. I am overrun with how loving, faithful, and amazing our God is! I have always thought I understo0od what our God did for us with the sacrifice of His son, but now that I have one, I have a whole new appreciation. Lord, I am so thankful for my family and pray for those who do not know you, that they come to understand what You have done for them. Thank You for your Son, Jesus, and the unwavering love you have given to me.
-Love, Your Daughter

Andrew has had many firsts in the past few weeks, which is so fun for Aaron and I to watch! We would not have been surprised if he was a bit behind on his milestones because he was 5 weeks premature, but he is right on track, if not ahead! We took him to his 4 month checkup on Friday and he is really growing! He started off not on the growth chart, then he went to 3%, then 10%, and NOW he is in the 25%!!! Wahoo!!! We love watching him change and grow. We are so thankful to our sweet God for giving us the gift of parenthood! Here are some videos of his firsts!

The Snow Family!

Aaron and I built our little family out of snow when I got home from work yesterday! It was so much fun! Dont worry, we put Drew in his little chair in front of the double doors out to the backyard. We could see him and he loved how bright it was. :) When we took him out in the snow, he didnt like the actual snow falling on his face. Too cute! This morning, Aaron and I went and had a snowball fight. We each had our own strategies of hitting the other. Aaron would make actual snowballs and I would just pick up lightly packed clumps. I think mine worked better because it would fall apart as soon as it hit him. Although, I fell and he got me really good. I am so glad to be home, hanging with the hubby and our sweet son! Here are pics of our creations.
