Our Household Is Growing...

As if we didn't have enough going on!



During my pregnancy with Noah, we got a kitten to give us all something to focus on, other than the dark days of waiting. After Noah was born, and we were spending all our time in NICU, our neighbors took the kitten in and loved it so well that it refused to come home again. We told the kids that someday when things settled down we would get another one. Well, Grandma & Grandpa had some kittens on the farm...the kids were in love...and life is never going to settle down...so it was time. I have to admit, she is quite adorable. And pets are supposed to be therapeutic, right?


Noah's introduction to the kitten...




At first... with big sister, it was kind of fun...





But alone with the kitten...


...he was less than thrilled.

Nichole, those pictures are priceless! I couldn't help but laugh. I love the captions. Noah is such a handsome boy and he's getting so big. I'm glad you all were home for Thanksgiving. You truly have a lot to be thankful for. I'm very thankful for you! You're such an inspiration to me. You're my SHERO!

Take care and God bless! May God continue to keep Noah healthy and strong.

That is really cute. I don't often see pictures of Noah crying (apparently because he's usually really happy!) so it was cute to see those last two pictures of him :)

The kitten is adorable too - makes me want one!

Now that I cant move too fast or far from the couch I figured it was time to say hello and y'all are in our thoughts and prayers. Happy to hear that the kids are liking the cat. You know we do have more where that one came from for anyone else who may want one.
