We are alive! and doing quite well!

Hello everyone! I will start by admitting that I am not so much a good multi-tasker at home. I am a great one at work, but I really don't like multi-tasking, so I haven't mastered it at home, Eric will tell you! So, what I am saying is that with all that has been going on I have totally neglected blogging, which in turn neglects you guys who have so faithfully followed our story and prayed and celebrated with us and so I am sorry that I do not multi task well!!! Here is an update:
  • I became an aunt, AGAIN!!!!! I am proud to announce the birth of a healthy baby boy, Houston Kenneth Moore to Eric's little sister A.K. He was born last week and had some trouble breathing and eating and so there was a scare that he was not okay, but turns out he is very healthy, no growth of bacteria in his blood cultures and he got off oxygen and came home last night! We have spent all weekend at the hospital and are so thankful that he is healthy and at home with his family!!! God has tremendously blessed our family....we believe Cohen and Houston will be best friends!
  • E signed her surrender on May 31st, so as of April 10th at 4:30 pm she was unable to change her mind any more. My heart felt and still is heavy for her as I just wonder how she is doing. How hard were those days for her? I am trusting in the Lord that she is okay and that He is caring for her. Please continue to pray for her when you think of us.
  • Cohen is a growing boy! I don't have a current weight, but he eats like a champ! I think we have hit our first growth spurt this weekend since he has increased feeding to every 2.5 hrs or so. He is just getting loved on from all directions. He seems to be a pretty even tempered little guy. He only gets upset when hungry and then sometimes when sleepy and he just can't quite figure out how to get himself to sleep. We help him along by singing to him and rocking him...spoiling him rotten I am sure! We actually are about to head out the door to a "Diaper Dunk" that Eric's co-workers are throwing for us. They are giving us diapers and wipes of all sizes! We had a shower from my church girls that was so awesome last weekend. He got loved on some more there, too! oh yeah, and I am gaining weight!!!! We have had several friends bringing over dinner to us for the past 3 weeks and it is all SOOOO good. And of course, several have brought dessert...not good for the waist line!

Anyway, I have told Eric to remind me and be sure that I blog again about the hospital and just more about Cohen. so please, don't give up on us, we will keep blogging!!! Love you all!

Thanks for the update Mandy. I don't know if your mom told you I had bugged her via email to make sure all was well and Cohen was still home. =0) Wonderful news is always appreciated. Only one request...MORE PICTURES! =0) And of course the hospital story. But we will all be patient. Life with a newborn takes a bit of adjustment. But isn't it GREAT!

Looks like you received your first spam comment. Darn spammers.

I am so happy for you and Eric. These first days as a family are so precious, made even more so by the test you passed with such flying colors.

Your godly little family is an inspiration to us all.

I'm so glad you posted an update! Glad to hear baby Cohen is doing well. The feelings you have about your birth mom signing the revocation are just like what I felt. I still think of her daily and wonder how she is. It's an amazing thing! Can't wait for new pics! :)

Oh, my goodness. You most certainly have a handsome son!

You two are pretty photogenic, too!
