We had an eventful weekend. On Saturday morning I ran my 2nd 5K post-pregnancy. The weather was perfect, the course was fun, and I felt great. I just wish Wendy could have ran with me, but she came to cheer me on.
Saturday at lunch time, we went to our first NICU/ICN (they are interchangeable) picnic. Every year, Presbyterian hosts a picnic with games and food for preemie graduates and their families. We saw our nurse, Erica, that was in the operating room with us when Haven was born. We also saw two babies that were in there with Haven and then a few friends from the past that have preemie graduates as well. So, it was a nice experience.
On Sunday, we had Haven's dedication ceremony at Wilora Lake where Jeremy's dad preaches. We dedicated her back to God the day we found out we were pregnant and every day since then. But we had the traditional, public dedication just to say that Jeremy and I will teach her about God and do our best to raise her to love him.
In this picture, Haven is wearing the dress that Wendy and I wore when we were dedicated 30 and 28 years ago.
We started this blog when Haven Noel was born on December 9, 2008 at 32 weeks and 2 days. We have been so blessed to watch her grow and now she is a big sister to Jovie Patricia. She was born on February 24, 2011 at 35 weeks 2 days. Both girls were little peanuts, but absolutely perfect. Jensen Phillip was born on November 28, 2012 at full term and we thank God for that miracle. We love God, our family, traveling, sports, and laughing.
