New Year's Day and baby Bennett

Happy January 6th y'all... I hope your new year has been treating you good thus far! Our New Year's day was fun. I got up first thing to make cinnamon rolls, which is a tradition for us. This year I decided to make The Pioneer Woman's cinnamon rolls. I've made them before and they are so yummy (and soaked with a maple, coffee icing.. HEAVEN!)

While breakfast was baking and making the house smell yummy, we watched the Rose Parade. Another tradition in our house. This was Jax's first time seeing it! (Last year doesn't count since he was only 7 months old :) ) He liked the horsies the most and every time he saw one, he said "neeeeeeeeeeeeeeiiiiiiii" in his most high-pitched voice.

We spent the rest of the day lounging in our PJ's and watching football. It was a great day, and now this is the month that daddy comes home, so we couldn't be more excited!

I wanted to update you all on this little guy. I've been closely following Bennett's story since he was in his mommy's belly and decided to come out at 27 weeks. He is such a strong little guy! He has his first surgery today and he did FANTASTIC! They were able to intubate and extubate him without issues (which they were very nervous about) and he is recovering well with very little oxygen required and a smile on his face. Please continue to keep Bennett in your prayers as his parents want him healthy and home as soon as possible. He is 6 months old and they can't wait to bring him home to the rest of his siblings. Praise the Lord for progress and answered prayers!
