9 Months!

The babies are now 9 months and doing great. We are starting to get peeks at what life is going to be like VERY shortly. The babies are starting to move around a lot. Chloe still likes to stay fairly stationary, but we are working on her with that. Knowing how quickly she has picked up everything else, we hope she picks up what we are trying to teach her here. Who knows, though, Chloe could be one to not crawl and just go to walking.

The boys, though, are crazy! You leave them one place and turn around for a second, they are in a different spot. They haven't left any rooms yet, tumbled down any stairs or anything, but we see where that is about to come into play. While it is a little crazy to think about with the three, it is also a riot to think about. I mean, three little mini human beings going around cracking up and getting into whatever?! That just makes me laugh....very hard!

Speaking of cracking up, they do a lot of that now with each other. They are playing a lot now with each other. Jackson gets all of them going by just making eye contact and laughing his great laugh. That gets the others going and then the whole house is laughing. Nothing like a house full of babies laughing.

So about 2 weeks ago, we celebrated the one year anniversary that Kristen went into the hospital for the rest of her pregnancy (not the kind of anniversary that is celebrated with a huge party!). Very crazy to think about that. I mean, she went in there at only 20 weeks along, and was in there for around 15 weeks. Unreal! I though deployment was a challenge, but I won't be complaining about that any time soon. It is crazy to think about how that could have gone. The babies had to make it to 24 weeks to even be viable. They had to make it to 28 weeks to have a 90% chance of having nothing majorly wrong with them. And they made it to 35 weeks! And the best part about it? We had NOTHING to do with it! We believe all of it was do to the power of God and prayer. We learned that not only were people praying all over the country, but all over the world. And God heard and answered the prayers!

Does that mean that our faith would have been pointless if they hadn't made it? Absolutely not. As the three dudes it the fire pit (Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego) said, "Our God can save THEM, our God will save THEM, but even if he doesn't, he's still God." So true even today.
