Feeling more settled...

It seems, that everyone is beginning to recover from the icky's that were going on around here. Thank goodness. Now, that all the holiday decorations have been put away and we're getting back to our normal routines, I'm feeling much less anxious and much more settled. As much as I love the holidays, I realize how much comfort I take in the everyday activities of life. A sound schedule makes me feel like I'm getting something accomplished and that my life is somehow balanced.

Since I'm feeling more settled, I've started to make lists of things I want and need to complete. Unfortunately, I have multiple lists going since there is so much to be done. I can't believe that our little princess is due in just 90 days. While this pregnancy has been much different and a bit more difficult than Little J, I know I'm going to miss it. I need to find a way to savor these last few months.

Little J had a full round of therapies this week. Overall, he did very well. We are so proud of all the progress he is making. We are truely blessed to be the parents of this amazing little boy. Not only are we proud of Little J and all his determination and hard work, we are also so thankful for the therapists that work with him. They are really some amazing women! I'm so sad, that one of them is going to be leaving us. Unfortunatley for us, she had to take a different job in another area for her family well being. We are really going to miss her. I hope that we can keep in touch with her. She has been an amazing advocate for Little J and for our family. We have been blessed to have her help.

I've also been reflecting on the last year and pondering it's ups and downs. We have certainly had some bad days, but when I think of the year as a whole, I can say that we are really blessed and we really do have a joyful life. I am so thankful for all of our family, our friends and the blessings that have been bestowed upon us. I thank God for bringing so many wonderful people into our lives and for all the support we've received from so many people during the rough times this last year. We are definately looking forward to a joyful new year and look forward to celebrating all the joys and blessings in store for us! Thank you so much to all of you who have been an amazing part of our journey in the past year. We love you!
