Valentine's Love!

 Valentine's Day was great for Canon, Trent, and I.  Canon and I had lunch at Trent's grandmother's with my mother in law and then for supper, we went with my mom to her friend's house for steak.  Trent got me the "C" pendent for my necklace and it brought back lots of memories.  He did a great job picking out my gift and knew just what I needed to make my Valentine's Day special. 
  Right after Trent and I lost the twins my best friend Lindsay S. got me the most special necklace. I am not sure if I have mentioned it on here before but ever since I got it, I have rarely taken if off.  Even when I think I should wear different jewelery to match my earrings etc. I just can't change the necklace.  Anyway back to what it looks like; there are two circular pendant's with two very little special initials on them. The is the "E" for Easton and the "P" for Parker.  Between the boy's initials is a tiny piece hanging down that says believe.  This necklace has meant so much to me over the past year and I always would tell myself, if I just believed, that I knew I would one day have another baby...A healthy baby this time.  I never knew how soon it would be. My necklace is complete for now because Trent got me the "C" charm, for our sweet, sweet Canon. I can't quit looking in the mirror at it.  I have three boy's...Three very special boy's, four very special boy's counting their daddy

This is how picture time started out...

Ok, Mom, I've had enough

well...Maybe just one more!

I hope you all had a great Valentine's day with your families.  I've been working on Canon's birth story. I'll try to get that posted soon.  It was pretty eventful!

Quick update on baby Canon!

    Canon is doing much better.  His apnea is getting better each day.  He is now tolerating his feedings and has not stopped breathing or turned blue in days.  The apnea monitor did go off the night before last but I am pretty sure it was a false alarm.  The only thing we are having trouble with now is his little tummy.  It seems to hurt all the time and I am not really sure what to do. Hopefully his Dr. will be able to help me figure out some options.  He still takes caffeine each day and will be on it and the apnea monitor for at least another month or two.  Canon is a great baby and doesn't give me any trouble until 9:00 each night.  He thinks it is time to be awake from then until at least 2:00 a.m. We have tried our best to keep him up during the day but nothing seems to work ( not even rubbing his little head or arms with a cold wash cloth will wake him up).  He is such a blessing to us and we are growing to love him more and more each day.  Thanks for all of the continued prayers.  I'll try to do better at keeping the updates coming but the time seems to pass so quickly each day that I don't want to miss a minute with Canon.
