Baby Judah 6 weeks old

It seems like yesterday we found out we were going to be blessed with our 4th child. Judah William Knox was born 5 weeks early on January 31, 2011. This is Tim and I right before we went to the OR.

This is me after I heard baby Judah cry (he did not come out crying at first)
Baby Judah 5 lb 6 oz They had to take baby Judah to NICU because he could not breath on his own. This is the first time I got to see my baby.
and touch him=)
They told us he would be in NICU for 3 weeks,
Tim and I would go on dates to the hospital cafeteria in my wheel chair=)
We got to leave NICU after 4 nights!!!! God is GOOD.
The kids first time to see baby Judah.

Fully in the Moment

I am reading a wonderful book called One Thousand Gifts by Ann Voskamp. In the book she starts to see all the things she is grateful for and writes them down. We as a family have started doing this and love it!!! It can be things like holding baby Judah at night, baby Abigail laughing, Micah putting my hair behind my ears, Nathan talking to me about God, hot showers, date nights with Tim, a cold dr pepper. We have had a blast doing this. One thing that I have realized is we are always in a hurry to get to the next thing and not truly living in the moment. I love how Ann said it in her book
Being in a hurry. Getting to the next thing without fully entering the thing in front of me. I cannot think of a single advantage I've ever gained from being in a hurry. But a thousand broken and missed things, ten of thousands, lie in the wake of all the rushing... Through all that haste I thought I was making up time. It turns out I was throwing it away.
I want to always live fully in the moment with my sweet husband and children!
