May will be beautiful :)

Noah is going to be a big brother!!! Chris and I recently found out that we are pregnant!!! I am 7 weeks and due on May 17th. We have not been to the doctor yet, but that is what our calculations and the nurse tell us :) We are so very excited!! When I first found out that we were, i started to get nervous and be filled with fear. But then I realized that I know a God who is in control of all things and has all my future planned. What ever happens, I trust Him. And with Him, I have such peace about this pregnancy. Our first appointment is October 22nd. I will be 10 weeks then and will be able to hear the heartbeat! I imagine she will be keeping a close eye on me and the baby because of what happened with Noah. So maybe this means more ultra sounds :))I am ok with that! Please be praying for us. Be praying for a healthy pregnancy and baby. Be praying for our finances. We are so thankful.

Kirk Wedding

Joe and Stephanie Kirk tied the knot last night! We are so excited for them and their beautiful marriage!! What an honor to be a part of their day. Noah was the ring bearer and Chris sang a song. :) Madison and Noah did a perfect job last night! Madison held Noah's hand the whole way down while throwing rose pedals! You will see on the video...at the end of the isle, Noah through a small little fit because he wanted to keep going! He said "more". He was having too much fun!! It was hilarious! Noah lasted about 1/2 the ceremony before I had to take him out. He said "Amen" twice when Pastor John was talking!! And then at just the right time he shouted "Yeh!" really really loudly! Everyone laughed. I fed him two packs of fruit snacks hoping it would keep him quiet! He was just too excited! Enjoy the pictures and video!!! :)

Preemie Reunion!

Yesterday afternoon we had Noah's 1st Preemie Reunion at Mount Carmel East Hospital where he was born! It was so much fun to see our wonderful nurses that took care of Noah 24 hours a day to be the healthy boy that he is today!! Our two favorites that took care of Noah the most were there, Nancey and Jody. When Noah was in the NICU they would fight over which one would get to take care of them that day!! They will always have a special place in our hearts. They loved seeing Noah and still are amazed by all of his hair. Nancey asked if she could take him home! We had not seen Jody in about a year. She has had some health problems and has been recovering from lung cancer. She has never smoked a day in her life. Please pray for her. She flies to Pittsburgh every 3 months to make sure that she is still cancer free and doing well. I have been praying for her all this time, knowing that she had cancer, but not to the extent. I was thrilled to see her. She is just such an amazing person. We are so thankful for such wonderful care and to be able to come together and thank them again was just the best!!
