8 and 9

Today I am thankful that my baby girl and little boy are healthy and strong. I have seen too many little babies struggle in the last two years with their health. I pray for them everyday. I feel blessed that God has given Cliff and I a health baby girl and a energetic strong 23 month old boy. My continued prayer is that He continues to bless us in their health.
I am also thankful for my husband's paternity leave. Not many men are allowed this in their career. Our church has always allowed Cliff's hours to be flexible when it comes to caring for his family. I had a hard time recovering from labor with Aidan and he was offered two weeks paternity leave with him. He has been given another week to be at home with our new arrival and I am LOVING it. The best part is that he will go back next Tuesday and Wednesday and then be back at home for five days due to the holiday and that his day off is Monday. So fun for us to have this time together as a family.

Those are wonderful blessing and I am so happy for you guys=) I can't imagine not having Rob those first few weeks...even though I know people do it. That's why we planned our pregnancies so I would deliver in June. How cool and that his employer gives him that very special time. God bless you guys and enjoy your time as a new family of 4! YAY!!!
