This goes back to another previous post, but here is baby Krislyn Broek. She was born almost 2 weeks ago. We got the opportunity to go see Sara and Kris in the hospital when they had her. She is an absolute doll! I hope God gives us the pleasure of a little girl in the future (far future) because Jared just looked so happy holding her.
Here are some pics from the last couple of weeks. We have had such a great time with adjusting to life with 2 kids. Caelan has been a great big brother and Maddox has just fit into our routine. We cannot imagine our life without our boys.
The top picture is Caelan trying to split an egg at a Japanese restaurant. We took him to eat here when Jared had some time off at Christmas. He loved when he did this and saw the onion "volcano" they did. The next picture is from New Year's. We went to dinner at Brio and met up with Phillip and Jeanine and Robby and Andrea. It was great! All of us are going to see Wicked in April when it comes. This is a great group to get together. The last picture is of Caelan's new bed. Once Maddox arrived we decided it was time to move him to another big boy bed. He loved it! He has done great sleeping in it. We can't believe our little boy is so big!
Today will hopefully be the last day that Jared will ever have to take a test! Today from 8 am until 2 pm he is taking test number 9 of 9 for the Architecture Registration Exam (ARE). I, along with others, have been praying for him this morning and will continue to do so. If you happen to come across this while he is still testing please send up a quick prayer. This is a huge thing for his profession and for our family. He has been preparing himself for a while to take this test and we are so proud of him! As soon as we find out how he did I will let you all know. It usually takes about a month to get the results, but God willing we will find out sooner! God has been so good to us and no matter what happens we know that His way is the best!
On other news 2 friends had their babies this past friday! The Thomas' had Krislyn on friday morning. We are so excited about her arrival as she has been a much anticipated girl for all of the boys that have been born recently! She is beautiful and I will post some pics as soon as I figure out this computer! The Mills' had Micah on friday night! He made the 8th grandson for the Lombard crew! I know everyone is so excited about his arrival. Daddy posted some pics on his facebook page and he is such a cutie. God is so good in giving both of these families such blessings!
In other sad news, I got a call from my mom this morning to tell me that a former Hoover coach and his wife lost their 3 month old baby boy this past weekend. They are thinking SIDS was the cause. Please pray for this family. As a mother it breaks my heart to hear things like this.
