Ella & AJ's first visit to the beach and they LOVED it! Of course, Mom and Dad loved it too.

I call this Ella's vacation hair. : )
We spent July 4th with the cousins in Oklahoma and Ella and AJ were so-so about the fireworks...hahaha

Miracle Miles

I am giving Ella's testimony in chapel tomorrow at my school and so I was looking back on the blog to get inspiration and I am reminded of how much road we have traveled. It is so easy for me to go through the days and not remember how small she was when she was born or how many times God held her in His hands. Ella is now 2 years old and comprehends so much and runs around the house like she owns it.

A miracle took place in our lives when Ella was born, and again took place in our lives when A.J. was able to be carried full term. Life is now full of wonder and laughter with A.J. crawling around everywhere and Ella letting everyone know how it is. Our preemie is now a healthy, vivacious toddler.

Walking Tall

Our big girl is now walking!! It's hard to believe that Ella will turn 2 in just a few has the time gone. The Jeson clan is doing great, Ella is walking and talks nonstop (even though no one understands her), and A.J. now outweighs big sister by 5 pounds. Nothing wrong with having a BIG Little brother. Summer is here and Ella enjoys swimming (after she gets used to the water)and would stay outside all day long if we would let her. Gotta go since the girl is taking out the trash for me (even if I don't need this kind of help). Love to all.

Big Sister? Little Brother?

Well, it has begun. People are now asking if Ella and AJ are twins (never mind the fact that she sits in a high chair feeding herself and he is sitting in a carrier with a passy in his mouth). I have no doubt that Ella will remind him and the world, that even though he is bigger - she is still the big sister. Our miracle girl is showing her personality more every day.

I get reminders all the time to update the blog, and our computer even reminds us since her blog is our homepage, but it is hard to carve out any time for showering(I know too much info) much less typing and loading pictures. Even now as I type this, Ella is under the desk emptying out the trash can for the fourth time. (she must have lost an important paper...hahaha)

Overall, the Jeson family is doing great and big things are just around the corner...Ella will be getting a prosthetic hand soon (yipee), and AJ is growing up fast. Thanks for all the kind words and for continueing to pray for our miracle girl. Love to you all.

Baby Brother

Our newest bundle of joy has arrived and big sister is very happy about it. Ella thinks that A.J. (Aaron Craig Jeson II) is the greatest thing ever and takes every opportunity to touch him and be close to him. Little brother was 6 pounds 7 ounces when he was born on November 12th and now weighs 7 pounds 10 ounces, soon he will be little big brother. : )

Life in the Jeson house is a little crazy now and sleep is something that I remember fondly but don't get much of but this season will pass. Here is our princess Ella preparing for cold weather and all the cousins together at thanksgiving. The picture shows how big our boy and girl are getting. : )

Pumpkin Patch

Yesterday we took our 13 pound bundle of energy to the pumpkin patch and got some great pictures which I had to share with you all. I have been reminded lately (I think it is the time of year which takes me back) of how far God has brought Ella and our family.

Aaron had to get a new cell phone, because Ella chewed on his old one and it died, and he sent me some pictures to save that he had taken the first two days Ella was in the NICU. She was so tiny and sick and now she is crawling all over the house getting into everything she can get her hands on...thank you God for bringing us this far.

I have also been thinking about my time in the hospital after she was born because I will be there again in a couple of weeks with little brother, and I have been thinking about how different the experience will be for everyone. Having two kids in the house is going to be lots of work, but having healthy children is priceless. My doctor has been bragging on me because I am following all of her recommendations and don't complain when I have to see her twice a week. I told her I would rather see her every day than spend 5 months in the NICU beside my child's bed.

Thank you Jesus for a healthy family.
