I have had to write the date several times today and keep wanting to write 12-18-06. But it is 12-18-08! Noah is 2 years old today and we can hardly believe it! This time 2 years ago Chris and I were brand new proud parents of a handsome baby boy! The night before we had Noah we had all kinds of emotions running through us. Was our baby going to be ok being 6 weeks early? was i going to be ok with my blood pressure? what is is like to have a c-section? what is it like to have a preemie? when will i get to hold my baby? when can I take him home? what is it like to be parents? All of these things and God gave us such peace through such a time as this.
Weighing 4 pounds 13 oz. and being in the 0% for his weight, he had a rough start. Today he is 26 pounds 9 oz. and in the 34% for his weight! Thank you Lord for our healthy son. We could not be more greatful. Noah, you have come a long way in 2 years. You are so strong. You are right on target with all your friends that are the same age as you and your Mommy and Daddy could not be any more proud. Thank you for the love you give us. Thank you for your sweet smile and the way you love others. We celebrate you today and the unique little person the Lord has created you to be!

Today we had our first ultra sound! We were SO excited and I was a bit nervous. But everything looks great! The baby is very healthy and even growing a few days ahead of schedule! I am 18 weeks today, so we were hoping that they would be able to see the sex of the baby. And they did!!! At the end she made us close our eyes and she printed up a picture that says "its a ..." and we had her put it in a box that we will open on Christmas morning! All i have to say is, how many more days to Christmas?! Please continue to pray for the baby and me. My blood pressure is perfect right now and we just pray that that continues until the end and we can have a healthy full term baby!! I now have 2 amazing doctors that will see me monthly, so we will be well taken care of. :)

So cute! this is the baby's legs crossed!!
