Merry Christmas!

Christmas tree? Check.
Presents? Check.
Stockings? Check.
Christmas dinner? Check.
Plenty of snow (with more on the way)? Check.

The only thing we're missing is you! Christmas won't be the same without all our family and friends, but we're confident that a small sacrifice this year will pay big dividends down the road. We hope that you all have a joyful and relaxing holiday; you'll be in our thoughts!

Bryce is doing terrific. He's delighted us a few more times with his laughter, and does his best to share his opinions with us (see video above). He's also really taken a liking to his big brother. Bryce practically demands to sit in his Bumbo whenever he's awake so that he can watch Logan play with his toys, which I'd argue is further evidence of good vision.

His recovery from surgery was quicker and easier than we'd imagined possible. Other than flat weight gain for the week, he hasn't shown any sign that he was in the slightest distress since we brought him home from the hospital. We took the dressings off his incisions this morning, and they look great; you can barely see the scar from the inguinal hernia (above his right leg), and his belly button appears to be healing up nicely too. With a little bit of luck, we won't have to go back to the hospital until he gets his cleft palate fixed next September.

I don't think Santa usually brings presents to thirty-year-olds, but we'd be willing to trade all the rest for a pair of healthy boys in 2010!

  1. Merry Christmas to all of you!
    Now I know how old Simeon felt in the temple when he saw the Infant Jesus. " Now,Master, you can dismiss your servant in peace; you have fulfilled your word. For my eyes have witnessed your saving deed displayed for all the peoples to see." Luke 2:29-31
    Thank you for allowing all of us to behold God's works in your family.
