Welcome to 2016

Okay!  Lukas is sleeping and Osiris is holding him so I have a second to update the world.

It’s a New Year!  Yay.

For those who don’t know, we had a baby on December 22.  You can read all about it in my Birth Story post.

Osiris got to spend 3 weeks at home with Lukas and I.  Lukas has been the best baby.  Okay, I really don’t know if he’s the “best” or not, but he’s been very well-behaved.  He communicates really well and is lots of fun to look at and play with.

Osiris went back to work last week.  It was really hard on me.  I was really scared.  We survived, thank Jesus!

Last night, Lukas hit the milestone of sleeping 4 hours straight.  It was brilliant.  Up to now, it’s been every 2-3 hours.  Usually not a full 3 hours.  Anyway, I feel great from sleeping 4 hours straight.  Then 3 hours straight.  Then 2 more hours.

Lukas has been to church twice now.  He’s been so well behaved in church.  Tear-free so far!  He started attending home group last Sunday.  Everyone spoiled him, of course.  He’s going to be the most spoiled child in the whole wide world.  We are grateful for how much love he’s getting, though.

We are super grateful for the support and love that’s been pouring into our home.  FriendsIMG_4357 keep showing up with food and gifts still.  Friends have come in to do some chores and play with Lukas while mommy showers or naps.  We are blessed by a community more loving than we could ever imagine!

My dad and brother have come to hang out, too.  That’s been fun.  I can’t wait for my mom to live up here so she can spend some time with her little grandbaby.  Family has been great!  We’ve been able to skype a ton with Osiris’s parents and they get to watch Lukas sleep or play.  They’re super happy about that!

Okay- I’m done.  Bye.
