What a wonderful Christmas we had this year! It was so fun to celebrate with our completed family and to know that these are the 3 boys I'll be spending my many Christmas's to come with. Life is good! We always spend Xmas eve with my family and Xmas day with Kyles. I took lots of pics to share on here (all on my phone of course). On Christmas Eve eve (the 23rd) we went to the Eagle Brook service and it was amazing as usual. This year they did 'O Holy Night' which is my favorite Christmas song and it brought me to tears it was so amazing!! I had to share a link of it my sis sent me from Facebook because... Wow. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. So moving!

Deacon had his yearly doctor visit today. We combined it with Larsen's 2 week follow up and both went great :) Deacon made the doctor laugh sooo much it was hilarious. At this age they ask him a ton of questions just probably to see where they are developmentally.. And boy did he have a bunch of questions for her too!! "What is that?" "What does that do?" "Can I listen to my heart?" "Can I listen to your brain?" "Can I have that rubber glove and blow it up?" Hahaha. One her questions for me was if he showed interest in learning but she said that went without saying! When she put the stethoscope to his back to hear his lungs and he made sure to tell her she was checking the wrong spot for his heartbeat and then showed her where that was. Oh and he made sure to tell the nurse his butt itched when she asked how he was doing....that kid. Anyway, he's a healthy BIG boy!! Well they both are!! Deacon is 45 pounds which puts him at 96% for weight and he's at 74% for height.
Larsen did great too! He was 10lbs 4oz. Which puts him at 90% for weight. He was 22.2 inches long which is 98% for length. Oh and his head was in the 99th percentile :) I make some big boys!! They are both perfect though and I am oh so thankful for their good health. God had blessed us so much!! Glory to Him!!

Well I'm going to be honest with myself and say that most of my posts over the next year will probably be filled with pictures! I don't have much to write about this week because we really haven't left the house but once. I dropped deacon off at school and Larsen off with my mom so I could stop by my work to do some paperwork for my maternity. I wanted to bring him in and show him off to my coworkers but the flu has been going around my office so I decided I better not. So we mainly just hang at home! We got professional pictures of the boys done on Tuesday.. Can't wait to post them here they turned out so cute!! I wanna get my holiday card out first though :)
Also.. I'm so proud of my lil guy he's the best sleeper!! He's been sleeping anywhere from 4-8 hour stretches at night already!! Wow!! I am so lucky!!!

Well I'm going to guess that my upcoming posts are going to be a majority of pictures vs words. I'm completely obsessed with my boys and can't stop taking pics on my iPhone of them... Mostly the little one (Deacon doesn't sit as still for me anymore!). Recovery from having him has been pretty rough but that sweet face makes me seem to forget about it.
We've been home for almost a full week now and it's been wonderful!! I looooved staying at the hospital when I had Deacon.. It felt like a hotel with room service. Although I got the same treatment this time around I just wanted to get outta there to be at home. There's no place like home that's for sure!!
Here are pics from our first week :)

I can't even BELIEVE it was 4 years ago today I was in the hospital having you. My goodness does time fly! Every day with you is so special and fun. You are the greatest joy!! I love you so much!! Thank you for being such a good boy with a loving heart. God blessed us sooooo much when he gave us YOU!!
We celebrated his 4th bday over the weekend with both grandparents at Chucky Cheese.. He had a blast of course! Then dad took him out on the rink he flooded on our backyard pond for some hockey! Brought me back to my childhood days when my dad did the same!
We love you buddy thanks for being you!!
