Baby Dean picture updates will be on our new Mobile Me gallery. Check it out, we'll try to update often! Just click on New Pictures at the top of this post and it will take you there! Also, we'll have pics on FACEBOOK!!:)
Today is day 6 of Deans life! It's gone so fast in some ways and so slow in others! We are totally in love with him and feel totally blessed to have him! He's so cute, so laid back usually, sweet as can be, and a TON OF FUN! We watch him constantly! He's a blast!
We've been a little tired, but not as tired as we might have expected, so, that's a relief! We've so enjoyed our time with him. We are very grateful for visitors and helpers and meal makers over the past week! THANK YOU ALL for EVERYTHING! We love and need the support!

Welcome Back

Well really you may have not seen an update on here in a long time. But a lot has happened in the last 9 months!! Danielle is still pregnant and could have the baby any time now! We are hoping sooner than later!! So far everything thing has gone, "PERFECTLY NORMAL" which has become my favorite phrase to hear! I am so anxious and have been ever since we found out we were pregnant. However, the truth is I don't need to worry. God has been so good and we have been so blessed!! It really is true...we should not worry! HE is in control!!

Today we went to Meijer in our NEW MINIVAN (well new to us) to walk around and try to get some labor going!! We call this "OPERATION FREE BABY FREED"! Thanks Shanna for the great title!! We have included a pic of her in this post.

Also, Bud Freed (my Dad soon to be Grandpa) Jesse, Micah and a whole Army of Friend and family members helped us put in a deck in our home. Over the past 2 and half years we have tried to fix up our home and add more value to it. Adding the Deck was the final piece to our plan. At first we were unsure how we ever could afford the deck we dreamed about! We looked at many different options but to put in a deck or patio 12 wide and 25 feet wide was going to cost a pretty penny. Than, my Dad found some time to come down from Clarkston Michigan and give an entire week to help us out! We worked from 8am - 10pm at night! I don't know if we have ever worked that hard in our lives! I even impressed the Father In-Law on how hard i worked=) When it was all said and done, we were able to save a lot of money and my friends and family gave us an awesome gift! A few weeks ago Joe my brother, came down from Greenville Michigan and put that final touch, stain.

thank you everyone for our awesome deck!!

Finally, many of you know, but I have SLEEP APNEA. Yeah Yeah Yeah, i can already hear the jokes!! But for the past two months I have been sleeping with a new CPAP machine!! I sleep like a baby and wake up refreshed and ready for the day! Danielle say's she can totally see a difference in our lives!!!

And before i let you go, i hope to post more often. Maybe if I post more, you will comment and encourage us to keep updating???

Keep in touch!!
