Emerson is growing up way too fast. He is running all over the place, climbing on everything that he can, and talking so much! He is such a bundle of JOY. He makes us laugh all the time. He is 100% boy who loves all sports and even loves watching ESPN with daddy! He copies daddy Hewitt by saying "Oh!" Or "Get it!" Emerson is already 18 months! He went for his 18 month visit the other day and everything is great!
Ellington is growing up too. Man, she is becoming such a cute, pretty little princess. And she is showing that God is working in her everyday! As I have told you before, I always pray for God to make her legs stronger today than they were yesterday. Today at Preschool she stepped up onto the curb with just holding my finger. She has never down this before now. I usually have to pick her up to help her down (while holding Emerson on my hip) But today she did it! I could of cried tears of JOY right there. I WITNESSED God making her stronger today. Man, He is SO good all the time. He is healing our precious baby girl and it's from your prayers. Thank you so much for continuing to think and pray for Ellington and for our family. It's WORKING. He hears it and is answering our prayers. Praise His Holy Name!
I can't believe it's already Christmas time! We had our tradition of making our own dinner on Thanksgiving and eating way too much, but then we went to pick out a tree together. It was so cold I think I picked the one closest to us when we got out of the truck, and thank goodness it's pretty once we got it up!
Emerson had a fit when we opened the tupperware of ornaments, he gasped and said, "WOW! Balls!" We had to keep reminding him that he couldn't throw these, that they go on the tree! (We still had 3 broken, but none that mattered) We always love putting the ornaments up that the kids made. I love seeing their art work, or their foot or hand print! It's so sweet. Ellington was excited to find her hand prints to hang on the tree this year!
I took Ellington and Emerson the other day to Mad Platter in Columbia to make more ornaments for this year. Ellington and Emerson love getting their hand and foot painted! It's so cute! I could just picture Parker and Haley there with us, being excited to help them do theirs. December is always hard. Right after Thanksgiving and after a Christmas party at my parents house, it hits me. I was really emotional and actually sick feeling the morning that I took them to paint the pottery. I got up that morning and said, "Satan is not going to win" So, I got up quick and got dressed and took them for a fun day. We went to paint the pottery and then to Chipotle where they enjoyed a lunch date with their mommy. This day started out yucky, but ended as a great day! I loved taking Parker and Haley to Mad Platter to paint and now Ellington and Emerson are enjoying it! I did get to share our story while we were there and it felt good to tell them how much it meant to me to take P and H and now E and E.
I hope that you all have a great weekend! I plan to be outside with the kids as soon as they wake up! It feels wonderful!
