So, for those of you ladies who think your husband is the best in the world, you'll just have to bear with me here. God has truly blessed me with the most incredible husband in the world. When I think back to May of 2003 and signing up on eHarmony.com I had no idea what was in store for me. Then when God brought Justin across my path I started getting an idea. I had always prayed that I would have a marriage like my Grandma and Grandpa Slagenweit. Let me explain, after 50 plus years of marriage they were still "newlyweds". As in love or more in love than the day they got married. No, Justin and I are not at 50 years yet, but it has truly been the happiest years of my life. That being said, I have had the best life in the world! Justin has taken the God given responsibility of being the leader of our home and I am SO thankful for that. I know it isn't always the easiest job loving me, but never once has he done anything but love me unconditionally. He lets me know that on a daily and even hourly basis some days. So why am I bragging on him now. Well, for one I don't do it enough and two I was reminded yet again how awesome he is. It has been a pretty sleepless few weeks with Evan due to teething, tummy pain, etc. As much as I try not to get grumpy with the lack of sleep it unfortunately comes out sometimes. Today, he sent me to the Spa for the afternoon for some serious relaxing. A facial, massage and sauna were among the things on the agenda. He knows how much I enjoy this! Mind you, he kept a teething Evan with him! It was while I was there that I thanked God once again for sending Justin into my life. Thank you God for blessing my life with this wonderful man! Thank you Justin for loving me! I love you Sweetheart!!

Wow! Finally a chance to get a little caught up! It has been an exceptionally busy week, but a very good one. Justin had surgery on Tuesday to have a wisdom tooth removed. He was out of commission for a few days. In fact, he doesn't even remember Tuesday! (Ask him about the guy in the next room!:) He told me the story 8 times on Tuesday!) He has been working hard on finishing his step-dad's book before our trip north. Evan is doing great. He had a eating check up on Wednesday and weighed 15lbs and 6ozs. So, he has gained a pound in a month. Not to bad in Mommy's opinion! The last time we increased the medication he really slacked off in eating. Last week he had gotten to the point where he couldn't care less about eating at all. I decided to back the medication off and he seems to be doing much better. It seemed like it was working as an appetite suppressant. He is laughing at everything now and becoming Daddy's boy. He loves to just watch Justin whether it's talking, eating, shaving, etc. He is also rolling all over! The other day I had him on his activity gym so I could do some work in the kitchen and when I checked on him he had rolled to his exersaucer! I have been busy cleaning, finishing my Christmas shopping and taking care of my boys with a swimming lesson thrown in here and there. We are leaving for PA next Saturday so I wanted to have everything in order before we left. This week I can wrap presents, finish Christmas cards and pack. Not to bad! We had our family Christmas pictures taken as well as Evan's 5 month pictures.
