sad day

Pat's baby nephew passed away this morning. He was about 5 weeks old. He was 6 weeks premature and got to go home the other day with a heart monitor and sleep apnea machine. This morning Pat's brother and girlfriend woke up and realized that they had actually got some sleep (usually the monitor goes off b/c Gabe would stop breathing 5-10 times a night). They ran into check on him and he was blue. They called 911 and attempted CPR but it was too late. They have determined that the machines failed and didn't set off an alarm when he would stop breathing. As you can imagine, everyone is devasted. We are headed up there (Muskogee) tomorrow. Pat can't get off work today since he had already clocked in and they don't consider that immediate famliy. No news on when the funeral will be yet. Please keep our family in your prayers.
I can't even imagaine the grief. I haven't let Noah out of my sight today since I heard the news. I am sitting in his nursery right now watching him as he sleeps. I love my baby boy so much. I just want to hold him and never let him go.

What an adventurous Christmas!!

We had an adventurous first Christmas with Noah. We drove to Henryetta Thursday early trying to bet the blizzard didn't quite work. It stared sleeting and snowing on us. Pat was very mad at me for insisting we go to my folks. We had a good time with family. Noah got lots of cute clothes and some toys. He had a good time with his cousins and grandparents and everyone. The real adventure started on the trip home Friday. Pat had to work today (saturday) so we had to get back. A noramlly 1 1/2 - 1 3/4 hours trip took us a little more then 5 hours. About Midwest city we were at a stand still for about 30 mins. Then Noah decided he had had enough of being in the car and started screaming, then the dog started barking b/c Noah was crying, then pat started commenting about how glad he was we made the trip. Then I started crying b/c it was getting dark and the roads were scary!!! SO then pat apologized for making me feel bad and Noah finally clamed down after I took him out of his seat for alittle bit. We will never do that again!!!!
But hey we have a great story to tell Noah about his 1st Christmas!!!!
Oh yeah and now Noah and I both have a cold!! and Noah is teething!!!!!!!!
Fun Fun!!!
