Update on Jaren

No pictures this time but wanted to let you know that Jaren weighs 12 lbs 5 ozs and 23 1/2 inches long. He also got his first shots this week. He did pretty good and hasn't had any side effects. He is 10 weeks old and is laughing, smiling, cooing and sleeping in his crib which he likes a lot better than his Bassinet.
Mommy on the other hand has had some more rough waters. After running fevers of 103 for 2 days I finally gave in and went to the ER. They gave me antibiotics which I had an allergic reaction to, I am now home with different antibiotic and a bad Urinary Tract Infection.

Well hope you all have a good Lord's Day.

It was a beautiful Sunday Morning June 21, 2009. Dan and Justin were Ordained by Rev John Brewer. We are so proud of them for this time in their lives. I will have to upload more later because my computer is acting up. So more ordination pics to follow.

Missions convetion and another Surgery

This last weekend we had Missions convention with the Zack and Sarah Robberts family and Bro. and Sis. Manley. We had really good services and it was good to have the Robberts in our home. It was also good to have the Manleys for supper Sat. night too.
Here are some pictures from the weekend.

Jaren is really enjoying his swing even though we have to prop him up with blankets.

Eleyna and Larissa Robberts having fun swinging Jaren. If Jaren cried Larissa always went over and said "What's wrong baby? It's alright baby." She was so cute. Sunday morning she woke up and asked her mommy "Where's those peoples baby?" We sure enjoyed having them all.

Well in other news in our life. This Mommy had to have surgery again yesterday. My Gallbladder went bad so they had to do surgery on it and also do a liver biopsy. They don't think there is anything to be worried about with the liver but they wanted to check it just to be safe. So Jaren got to go to Sis. Youngs house and be with her from 5am Monday till 3pm today. We sure did miss our little guy but Mommy is still not feeling the greatest. I am doing some better just can't eat much yet. Daddy is being a big help and really doing most of the work.
Here is a picture taken today after seeing Jaren for the first time in a day and a half.
On Memorial Day we drove from Everett, PA to Chambersburg, PA to have a picnic with Steve and Jeannie Cassidy and Jeremy and Ticia Morford. We had a wonderful time with friends. It had been over a year since seeing the Morfords and almost a year since the Cassidys.
