There have been many nights when I've just needed a little snuggle...hug...or smile and Jocelyn...like a guardian angel...has been there for all! she was the right baby to come at this time! the day she was born she cried one little cry and that was it...the nurses tried to get her to cry more just because they didn't think it was normal...but once was all they could get! And that's how she has been ever since. The first few weeks of her life I was paranoid she would get sick and so I kept her inside up until this crazy adventure! After Mike's accident she was basically thrown into the world! From five weeks old and on she has been everywhere...grocery stores, church, ICU waiting rooms, the doctors, and many many other places! But thanks to protective and loving grandparents, friends, family, and the many miracles of prayer she has remained healthy and happy (besides a slight cold in her eyes)!
Wow, what a weekend! We learned a lot...for example...we need wake up earlier if we want to get to church on time...we woke up at 7:30 am and it still took us four hours to get ready (that wasn't including the kids)! But it was great being able to go to church together...holding hands and just...awe....it was great! We also all were able to sleep under one roof for the very first time, Mike, me, Brody and Jocelyn! It's great getting little glimpses of family life and what it will be like after Mike gets home! Mike's parents were awesome in having everything ready for the weekend including a ramp for Mike!
Well, I was able to stay home with the kids tonight (it's amazing how great it is to be a mom and just do mom things sometimes with your kids). I couldn't sleep after I put them to bed so I put together a little movie of this last week...there is one part in the film where it looks like Mike's pushing a workout machine with his leg muscles...well...he kinda is! The trainer is helping as well...but...today we found out that he was contracting his upper quad muscles...yeah...I don't know about you...but I think that's a good thing! Mike... you're kind of a sexy dude! Love you!
