After they visit, Daniel's Dad and Teresa are coming down. Thanks for all the awesome delicious organic pasture-raised chicken, beef and pork you sent down with Aimee and Nathan! Our deep freezer is almost completely FULL now!! THANK YOU!!
In other news, Daniel is completely back to work now, and a little sad. He hasn't been on a proper schedule since May. Yes, May. In May/June he was in Peru for 6 weeks (for the military), and then in July he took a few weeks off so we could go to Kentucky/Ohio to visit family and go to camp (where we met as kids!). Then BOOM right after we got back home (2 days) I went into early labor and had Ezekiel. Well he had quite a few weeks off when Ezekiel was first born, and then was back to work half time until we brought Ezekiel home on December 5th, at which point he took more vacation days, leading up to Christmastime where he had MORE time off, and then now it's 2009. I must say, though, for all the time off he had this year, he has waaay more than made up for it in previous years. The military works you hard!
Ezekiel is doing really really well. Last week at the doctor's he was 9lbs 6oz, so he's probably close to 10lbs now! He's off of his oxygen almost all the time. He's cooing and grabbing at things, and he's started holding his own hands. He can push himself up when he's on his tummy, he has good head control, and he can scoot all over the place (but not crawl). He tries really really hard to roll over but hasn't really made it yet. He is so sweet, and we love him. He sleeps well. He's a little doll! I'm crazy about him! I have a lot of pictures that I need to upload from the camera. I will have to put some more up soon. Today is his "two month" birthday, as it is two months past his due date. Tuesday will be his "five month" birthday, as he will actually be 5 months old. He's so wonderful and I am so thrilled to have him!!
Happy New Year everyone!!!
