Celebrating Jace's 1st Christmas










December was quite the month. Jace had all three of his surgeries on Dec. 7th (palate repair, circumcision, and tubes). Thankfully we only had to spend one night in the hospital...it seemed every time we would get to sleep, someone would come in to check Jace's vitals. Now we are three weeks post surgery and he is finally feeling better (issues with the circumcision). His palate repair was quite severe...he had over 100 stitches! He was such a brave little boy!!

Christmas was so amazing this year. Eli was over the top with excitement! On Christmas morning, he thought we all needed to be up at 2:30am...WRONG!! Rob got up with him and they watched a movie...about fifteen minutes later, Jace wakes up. The three of them came in and tried to wake me up at 4:00am...I was like, no way, we are opening presents this early. So, Rob went back to sleep and I managed to get the boys back to sleep. Then the festivities began at 7am. Jace was a maniac at ripping open presents and Eli was so excited!!

It may have taken many, many years to become a mom, but all my life experiences have granted me the chance to be the best mom I can. A day doesn't go by that I don't thank God for blessing Rob and I with two amazing boys.
