So very sorry it has been so long since I've posted. It's been a hectic time around our household, but still no excuse for letting this get so very behind!!! First of all, Reed is doing so, so well. He is still on the Bethanechol three times a day and Prevacid two times a day. The gastro docs said that we could decrease the Prevacid when we saw that his spit up has gotten much better. Since Christmas, we have noticed a significant improvement in Reed. He isn't spitting up much at all and there is NO projectileness (I know, that's not a word). We are so thankful for where we have come throughout all of this. Thank you so much for your thoughts and prayers!

Riley is doing great - he had such a good time over the Christmas holiday. We've been trying to explain to him the true meaning of Christmas, and I think he does get it, at least somewhat. :-) I think it would be great for kids in America to see children in other countries just to be able to put some perspective on what a "rich" society we live in. It's boggles my mind to think about how much money was spent on Christmas gifs in our neighborhood alone. We truly are a wealthy country.

Jason has been bidding on many jobs - keeping that mind sharp - running numbers over and over again. Phew, just makes my mind spin thinking about it. Giggles and Co. is doing well too - Christmas was a truly busy time!

Ok, now for the picture sharing :-).

One of the presents Riles got in his stocking from us was a chef's hat b/c he has always loved being in the kitchen - mainly turning the mixer on and off :-). So, after watching Ratatouille, we're calling him Little Chef. He had to cook something last night for us - doesn't it look delicious???

This is Reed being funny - he really thought this bowl was a hat - he was trying so hard to keep it up on his head. We were laughing so hard!

The boys on Christmas morning, well, the Christmas morning in Lexington (which was a few days after Christmas!)

Reed enjoying his first candy cane!

I don't know if you can see it or not, but he's already pushing cars around and making the vrmmm noise!!!

One of my favorite pictures - all three of the boys!

I hope you all have had a good ending to 2007 and pray that 2008 brings you many blessings. We have so much to be thankful for! Let us know how you are doing... and Kristina, thanks for checking in - your email kicked me in the tail to get on here and do some more blogging :-). Thank you!
