Google Readers come see a video of Simeon talking!
This video was taken during the girls' gymnastics
I'm asking for prayers again for my sweet Simeon
I could tell you to go vote,
but I know you have already done that, right?
Could you spare some prayers for this sweet little baby,
who is nothing but happy almost all the time,
filling our house with baby talk, baby giggles and slobbery baby kisses?
I know most of you are already praying for him
(and did I tell you, he has the softest skin of any baby I've ever felt?)
He's crawling, and getting teeth, and
doesn't have a clue
that Thursday he'll be in pain again,
he'll need to learn how to suck again with his new lips,
and how to eat, and smile.
He'll have to wear those arm braces and won't be able to put his fingers in his mouth
for a while.
He'll have to sleep on his back
Oh, I can see as he gets older, each surgery is easier in the sense,
that I know kind of what to expect,
harder because I know what to expect
I feel as if we are tricking this naturally happy, sweet baby
I'm dreading that part where I walk back to the operation room and
have to leave my baby with the doctors
and wait and wait and wait
til I can hold him again.
Lord, make me strong, help me through this.
We love you just the way you are sweet Simeon.
This is for your future, so you can eat and talk
and grow and do amazing things with your life!
(here's his first tooth, just popped through last week,
this was taken-totally by accident,
while he was talking -in the video at the top
that tooth popped through the next day)

Thank you so much for your prayers
We appreciate it so very much!
I'll try to post pictures next week
We'll be in the hospital til Saturday for sure.
