Happy Birthday Trey!




I finally got to finish Claire's pillow. It makes me very happy to have this. I got most of it done before the baby was born, but then ran out of the last 2 inches of lace. That's my way with crafts! Ironically, I was at Joanne's buying the lace when I got the call from my doctor saying to go to the hospital because Trey's test results were still really worrying him.
So, 7 weeks later, just in time for my actual due date, I get the pillow done! I love having one that can go with Jackson's. They sit in his crib right now (Trey's not in there yet). I recommend something like this for anyone who's missing their baby.
Yes, today is my due date. I tell Trey that he's no longer a negative number! He's 1 day today! He's 7lbs too! So exciting how big he's gotten in 7 weeks. Almost doubled his weight.
I think last night he was so excited for his "birthday" that he couldn't sleep... he was up and crying every hour or so. Who hijacked my child?!
Finally, at 5:30a.m., he went to sleep. I was awakened at 7:15 by my oldest son. He whispered to me that he'd gotten dressed, done his hair, brushed his teeth and made his lunch. All that was still needed was scriptures. I exclaimed that my alarm must not have gone off. No, he heard it, he said! He crept into my bathroom and got out all the stuff he and his sister would need to get ready so as not to wake up me and Trey. How sweet is that?! He heard Trey crying all night and didn't want to wake me. I think it was worth it to go through last night just for this morning's gift. I felt so supported. It was amazing that a little 3rd grader did that. :)

I love that Caidgen was sensitive to your finally getting to sleep just as it was time for the rest of the family to get up for school. His independence and forethought is amazing. It brings tears to my eyes to think of the love he has for Ami and being able to get her things ready, as well. You and Blue have done such a beautiful job amid all the trials.

Caidgen, you make me want to cry! What a sweetheart. Happy birthday, Trey! Glad he's doing so well and love the pillow idea. Very sweet. I'm impressed that you even know how to do it. I think I know how to sew a button... maybe :)

What a neat thing to have and make! I'm impressed! Happy Birthday Trey and does Caidgen do lessons?? Could he teach my kids how to do that!
