Half-Year Day?

Happy 18 month mark Eli!! I can't believe how big you are getting right before our eyes. You continue to amaze us and everyone around us. Not only were you only given a 30-35% chance of survival based on being a 25 weeker, being septic at birth, and needing resuscitation in the delivery room, you have overcome so many other "odds" that so many people doubted you on. You are our second little miracle and this Christmas is going to be wonderful watching you tear into presents with reckless abandon while you babble away all the time knowing that you were never supposed to do any of it. Kisses and hugs to our little man.

Happy 3 and a half mark Carson! Boy is three and a half different than two and a half or even three. You are independent yet clingy all in the same ten minutes. You know what you like and don't like and aren't afraid to let anyone know about it. Your adorable personality and sense of humor grows stronger everyday. Watching you throw yourself into learning about the world around is what it is all about. Christmas in our house has been an adventure this year so far and I can't wait to experience all of the excitement and anticipation of Santa and Christmas lights and cookies and carols with you in the coming 8 days. Giant Carson squeeze our guts out hugs to our big man.

Happy Half-Year Day Boys! We love you!

Happy 18 month birthday Eli! We have watched you come so far these 18 months and have shared with your Mom in all the joys and tears that come with having a special early gift from God! You continue to amaze us every day and will no doubt grow up into wonderful young man someday (like your big bro). And kudos to your Mom for being such a fantastic parent and role model for others.
