Oh My Goodness, Oh My Stars..Connor's Turned Into A Bag of Spuds!!!!!!!

Can you believe it??????? After so many months of worrying that Little Bug would never gain any weight, we have a 20lb "Bug Spud" on our hands!!!!!!!!!! Yep, that's right, 20 whopping pounds!!!! Our Little Bug Spud is quite a lug now!!! I guess we're going to have to put him on Slim Fast, right???? Oh, maybe it would help if I tappered off the Egg Nog for a while, huh??? HA HA!! Today when Connor got his synagist shot (for RSV) his pediatrician couldn't believe how GREAT he looked!!! We have to agree, he is much cuter than these two bags of spuds but just as heavy!!!! We are all busy getting ready for Little Bug Spud's 1st Christmas and we couldn't be happier that we are all at home and we are ALL healthy and able to spend this special time of year with all of our families!!!! As you go about the last minute details to your Christmas celebrations, please don't forget to say prayers for all of those children who are ill and in the hospital. Our hearts truly go out to all the kiddo's at Children's Hospital and to their families. May greater health be known by all in this miracle season. Please say special prayers for our pal Casey. He was discharged on the 15th to go back home to Idaho, but was life-flighted back to Children's yesterday. We are awaiting word on his condition, but please pray!!!

Little Bug's Christmas Tree Ornaments....

Last year Little Bug's ornament was a pregnant mama holding a pickle and an ice cream cone in her hand.....(Luckily I never had that craving!!!!)

This year Little Bug's ornament is a reflection of our journey this year........A medical journey, so we found a baby pair of scrubs that has 2006 enscribed on the pocket. This not only makes us remember all of the medical procedures Connor has had this year, but also the Doctor's and Nurses that so carefully cared for and loved our precious Little Bug!!!!!

Daddy & Mama Are Reminiscing...Aaaahhhhhh!!!!

Little Bug last year on January 13th when we arrived home from the hospital we took pictures of Connor in a little sleigh that his cousins all had their pictures taken in when they were little itty bitty babies.....Although this is Connor's 1st Christmas he did get to have his picture taken by the tree last year in January and now we are reveling in how tiny he was. Hopefully we will rig up a way to take his picture this year in or around the sleigh so we can compare his size. Oh how cute he is...........

Little Bug's cousins were so glad that he got to come to their house to play. There was excitement all day long!!!!

Little Bug's 1st Christmas Party at Daddy squadron at McChord AFB. This is Connor with Princess Morgan's Dad-dee!!! We just missed Morgan and her Mommy and we were all so sad. We did get to meet lots of Flyin' guys and their families and even the squadron commander!!

Ok, we're home from the party at Daddy's squadron and Mama put this crazy hat on me to keep my ears warm.......Daddy and Mama were just giggling and saying how cute I am......I don't know why they do this stuff to me........
