Day 20 - 3 boys and Santa Claus


Tristan had a good night last night. His apnea monitor did not go off at all but he still has his days/nights mixed up so I held him from 3-5:30 am rubbing his little head and talking to him. During my pregnancy, and every day since Tristan was born, I look only at today not tomorrow because we are not promised tomorrow therefore I do not allow my mind, nor my heart, to think about anything other than today! A few days ago, Trayc said that Tanner was afraid Santa Claus would head back to the North Pole before he was able to tell him what he wanted so we needed to make plans to take Tanner and Tayden to see Santa Claus at some point. I was telling Trayc I know we need to but I just didn't want to take Tanner and Tayden without Tristan because it doesn't seem fair, he's a part of our family now and I don't want a picture without Tristan in it. We decided to wait until this morning to see how Tristan was doing before making a decision. So, the excitement for today? We made our FIRST OFFICIAL FAMILY OUTING to see Santa Claus. This is another one of those moments I never believed we'd do together. We bundled (and completely covered Tristan up), went to see Santa Claus, took pictures and videoed and let the boys give their wish list to Santa Claus. Although it was definitely the fastest Santa visit we've ever had (we didn't want to expose Tristan to too many germs) it was by far the sweetest picture we've ever had made with Santa Claus - our 3 boys. This was a special day and Tanner was so excited and proud of his new little brother, we can see it in his smile and hear it in his voice every day (I'm so glad we home-school, it allows him the opportunity to be home with us every day and spend unlimited time with Tristan)! Please pray for Tristan's continued strength and for us as we face another new day tomorrow.

Yay! That is one fantastic picture. Honestly, I think it's the best Santa picture I've ever seen.

Tanner looks over the moon. Tayden did so well with Santa at a somewhat "precarious" age for toddlers and Santa.

And Tristan looks fantastic! His color is so good!

I think the germs he may have encountered were well worth it. It made for such a wonderful memory, and it's all part of the life of a young family with young children -- and new babies.

Merry Christmas, Trayc, Yvette, Tanner, Tayden and Tristan. We love you and will be praying.

You have three of the most handsome boys I've ever seen. God bless and be with your family this Christmas season. I just happened to surf onto your blog one day and I have thanked God for each day you have had with your baby.
