"For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be." - Psalm 139:13-16

Abby Update

Where has time gone? It wouldn't be a normal post if I didn't mention how busy our life is. I can only imagine that sometime life will slow down, but as many of you know, it doesn't. I have been out of the country for three weeks and only to return for three weeks to turn around and be gone for another three. Heather, of course, is holding down the fort and taking care of everything on the home front. This is all being done while still working. We have to thank everyone that has helped out so far and everyone that is has signed up to help when I leave again: Aurora Jenson's, Mima, Papa, Sue, and "The Girls" (All of Heather's friends). Colton and Abby have been wonderful with the adversity of me being gone and others taking care of them. It is too bad that I came home with a cold and have recently shared it with Colton; who is home from school today with it.
Abby has seemed to miss catching it, which is a blessing, since her palate surgery is on Tuesday (tomorrow). She is one of the most energetic babies I have seen. Of course, I don't see very many other babies within their home, but even when we are out and about, she looking around, looking for friends, flirting with other boys (which I do not approve of), and just being a fun baby. Yesterday, I took her to church and let her spend the service with the childcare and they said she just played the entire time. I was a little nervous during the service, but they said she did great. We thank God for such a great baby, and furthermore, such a great family.
Like I said before, her palate surgery is tomorrow, Tuesday, March 17, St. Patrick's Day, at 11:30. We have faith that she will do just as good as she did with her lip surgery. God has blessed us with a great surgeon and we pray that God will have His hand over everything tomorrow. We thank everyone ahead of time for your thoughts, prayers, and their help with everything you provide. Below are some pictures to catch you all up and a little video of Abby learning some of Beyonce's moves.
Once again, we keep everyone updated as soon as we can on Tuesday. As soon as we have moved to our hospital room, I will post an update. The surgery is about 3 hours so I suspect I will get an update on here around 4:00 Mountain Time. Love you all and talk to you soon.
Abigail loves her blankets
