Gavin has started with some high fevers. He is loosing his color and we can just tell his body is getting tired. Adam and I are now in "waiting mode," as we both know that our great time at home is coming to an end.

So many times we find ourselves just walking the routines of life. We get up, go to work, come home, eat dinner, go to bed and then start the cycle again. Even in the business of life it is so important to make the time for making memories.

We have had an amazing two weeks at home, two amazing weeks.

Thank you Lord for giving us a break -- even if it was just some time to breathe.

You would never know it by looking at that face. He is such a little doll. I pray that he'll beat it quickly and you'll be back to making wonderful memories before you know it. I talked about this a few posts ago, but I think (for whatever reason) God doesn't want us to get back to normal. He wants something more from us. Something different. I just wish I knew what it was.

Waiting for something to happen is almost worse than knowing what's happening. His most current picture looks so good. He has a sparkle in his eyes and his face looks a little fuller. We will being praying your wait nor your stay will be long. Keep holding on to your line with God...even if it feels like it's just a thread! A thread to God is stronger than any chain we have here on earth.
