Just wanted to tell everyone Merry Christmas. We have so much to be thankful for this Christmas season. God has so richly blessed our family. He has saw fit to add a new life to our family this year! We are so excited that TJ will be home in 2 weeks for a couple of weeks. We have missed him so much and I think he is ready to come "home" to crash and relax. Ryan is in the middle of basketball season so it will be nice for TJ to get to a couple of his games. I know Ryan has missed his big brother being gone....although they used to fight ALL the time, they are finally becoming friends again.
Makenna is doing great. She continues to eat like a linebacker! She has sure gained weight since we had her. Some of her labs came back not so good and we are going to moniter for for the next month and try to get good foods in her and see how her body responds. She has been sleeping 10-12 hours a night! That is always wonderful.
Hannah has been a wonderful big sister. She has shown very little jealousy with Makenna. Makenna is far more jealous of Hannah! Hannah has been acting out more, doens't listen to what you tell her. We are nipping that in the bud. She is finally sleeping in her room! Anyone who has been following her journey knows that she has been in our room since the day we brought her home! She and Makenna are sharing a newly decorated room upstairs. It is a small battle most naps and nights but I refuse to give in at this point so I win every night! She slept upstairs for grandma and grandpa the whole time we were in China so she can keep it up!
That's about it. I will post some pictures later of our last days in China and also since we have been home.
We praise God the Father for His grace and mercy on our family and for blessing us with 4 of the most wonderful children in the world!
God Bless and have a Merry Christmas!
