Because I have been such a negligent blogger I thought I would do a little catch up post.
We finally decided on a name for our baby boy. You may have noticed my new bloggy name for him, Zed. Zed is how we Canadians say Z and there are a few reasons for me calling him Zed. The first being that Z is the last letter of the alphabet, and at this point I am really hoping he will be the last biological addition to the Mighty family.
The second reason is that his first name has a Z in it and his middle name is going to be my maiden name which also contains the letter Z. So Zed it is. Poor kid.
Our home renos are progressing, slowly but surely. Brent and I hope to at least have the little boys room finished in the next couple days, right down to new trim, doorknobs and outlets. I am working on some artwork to put in there and looking for a crib and crib bedding. I haven't found what I am looking for yet, but holding out hope.
The rest of the house is still a work in progress and looks to be for the foreseeable future. I try not to think about it too much, or it makes me insane.
My big boys are growing up so fast that it sometimes feels like there are strangers in my house. I keep catching glimpses of my 13 year old out of the corner of my eye and I think there is a strange man walking around. He is literally growing and changing before my eyes. Each week or two he is another 1/4 inch bigger and his face and whole body are transforming. It is so strange!
Thankfully the physical changes have not meant that who he is changes. He is the most incredible young man, I am so proud of who he is and who he is becoming!
Tonight my big boys have their 3 neighbour friends over for movie night. Their friends were all at the lake for the weekend with a bunch of other friends for an annual bash they attend. Unfortunately the festivities were cut short by a terrible boating accident. All the boys and another friend were out tubing on the lake with one of the parent's friends. I am not sure of all the details but the tube cord broke and the other boy flew off of the tube into a cement support for a trestle bridge.
He is in very serious condition, he was stable overnight, but today brought a whole new host of problems. More internal bleeding, fluid on the brain, bruised internal organs etc. My heart just breaks for his family and for the poor man who was driving the boat. Please say a prayer for them all if you get a chance. My neighbours and the boys are all a bit shook up, the boys were witnesses to the whole thing. I just pray that this young man, just 14 years old, will fully recover from his injuries and that the whole family will feel God's loving presence surrounding them as they walk through this.
There was much more that I wanted to write about, but I think that is plenty for tonight. I hope you all have an amazing and safe week.
