Early Christmas present!

Ben had an appointment this morning to get the results of his testing and he was officially told he is in remission. He will have to go for CAT scans every 3 months for the next year to make sure that it doesn't come back but we got the best Christmas present ever today. Now they just need to figure out how to get his feet working again so he can go back to work. I am grateful that he is home to help with the babies for now though.

The babies are all doing great. Matthew is babbling up a storm and being great about going to bed all by himself. Brady is starting to talk a bit too and is very interested in his surroundings lately. He goes to bed well on his own too and is finally not the first one up to eat everytime! Cameron is going through a fussy period. He used to never fuss or anything now he is the one who is the crabbiest but he still is wide awake the most during the day and very nosy. Aubrey rolled over twice now! She gets mad then thrashes around like a madwoman until she goes over. She is the worst one about going to bed at night, she will cry until she gets one of her brothers crying then stop. She is going to be our problem child!

We are excited to get our Christmas tree up this week so the babies can look at the lights. I am sure they will be mezmerized by them.
