We're HOME and absolutely thrilled!

Well, it's been about a month since I've been on here. Sorry, y'all. We drove for a full week, stayed in hotels for 2 weeks, then were finally able to move into our house on the 19th. We don't close until the 4th (James' birthday), but we did an early move in. We LOVE, LOVE, LOVE our home. And what a tremendous blessing it is to be with friends (who are pretty much family) again.

The boys are adjusting well ... so well that Peyton decided to christen our pool the first night we were here ... smiling huge the whole time. Little stink pot! Cam is still really scared of the pool but we are working on it. He's definitely making progress but I don't see him swimming without holding onto someone for a while. That's fine with me! :)

James is enjoying his new job. Less stress = Happy James and Lauren! :)

Although I am loving being here, I can't help but think of the reason we are here. We're here because of Reagan. I constantly pray that God will take away the pain ... that He'll continue to reveal to me why she had to go home so early. So many questions fill my mind ... so many things I want answers to that I very well may never have answers to. Our perfect, precious little girl was only physically with us 4 hours and 41 minutes but is carried with us every day. I love being able to tell people about her ... about how amazing she was is; how much of a fighter she was and how she defied the odds in so many ways.

Reagan - Mommy and Daddy love you more than you will ever know. I love to think about the soft, chubby cheeks you had; the beautiful thick black hair that covered your tiny little head; your nose that looked just like your brother's; your tiny, perfect, unique little feet. Baby girl, you were perfect in every possible way.  I can't imagine you being any more beautiful. You will always be our baby girl.
