This is the story of our precious baby boy, who was diagnosed prenatally at
17 weeks with a fatal chromosome disorder called Trisomy 13. Although
Jonathan's condition is considered "not compatible with life", we desired to give
him every chance at life. Our prayer is that those who are touched by our story
are drawn to God, who is Life Himself. John 14:6

sweet baby evan

evan turned two months old on the 22nd. i can't believe how fast time is flying by, but at the same time, i knew it would. 

i can honestly say that i have enjoyed every single second with this sweet baby.  i spend each day adoring him and taking in just how beautiful he is, how soft his skin is, how sweet he smells (most of the time), how good it feels to hold him in my arms.  all we begged of the Lord was for a healthy baby, and He outdid Himself by blessing us with evan.  evan loves to be held, he doesn't fuss much, he eats well (he was 14+ pounds at 8 weeks old!), he rarely spits up, he doesn't pee on me when i change his diaper, and he sleeps on average 5 hours straight each night, one night even hitting the 7 hour mark. 

ok, now i'm just bragging.

but even in the roughest of nights, i am enjoying evan so very much.  in fact, it's when evan and i are the only ones awake and i'm completely exhausted that i reflect on just how blessed i am by this precious gift. 

besides, it's hard to feel anything but love when he greets me with a sleepy smile in the middle of the night.
