Noah's first bouquet of flowers

My dad, Noah's Grandpo, sent him this adorable bouquet of flowers for Valentine's Day that was encased in a metal vintage fire truck! My dad said he got it for Noah for the truck, not really the flowers, but let me just tell you, that Noah BEYOND thoroughly enjoyed the flowers!! So, Dad, here is how much your grandson loved the gift . . . Love you lots!

Happy Valentine's Day from Noah and Zoe

He is the most precious blessing God could have ever given me. I have been exposed to way too many blogs and friends of friends that have babies that are very ill in the hospital, undergoing surgeries, fighting cancer . . . I don't know why God has exposed me to these, but it is an honor to pray fervently for these amazing families, who are completely relying on God's strength to get through. It also makes me thank God for Noah's health and safety, and I look at him with the most intense gratitude toward God. My heart aches literally for these families. I won't post links or anything to these families blogs, but please pray for them.

Noah is a true gem to me, and this Valentine's Day, I am at a loss for words to describe the gratefulness and love that I have for this precious boy. He is wearing a shirt in the photo that says, "Heartbreaker", and I mean, that boy just breaks my heart over HOW STINKIN ADORABLE he is!!!!! He has now been introduced to solid foods as of three days ago, and he is loving him some peas!!! He is such a great eater, and he just took to it immediately. He was like, "Why did you make me wait this long for this good stuff?!"

I wanted his Valentine's photo to be very red and lovey dovey!! I tried everything in my power to get Zoe on the couch next to him and pose for the photo, but she was much more into trying to get me to play with her toy. So, she didn't get in the photo. :(

Noah Thomas Hasse is the love of my life. I can't imagine one day without him, I don't even remember what life was like before him! The same thing goes for the most amazing husband in the entire world. Nathan is the keeper of my heart, and I am honored to be his wife. God is good. This Valentine's, I have a heart of gratitude. For my family, friends and most importantly, the God of the Universe. Happy Valentine's.

I talked to Sarah this morning, and Trey was in the OR ready for the biopsy, and the doctor came in and said at the last minute that there was no need to do it because his blood counts came way up (still low, but not of deep concern)!!! They think he could possibly have Parvo Virus.
They are going home from the hospital today, yippee!!! They have to go back on Thursday for another blood test.

So, keep praying for him, that he is healed of anything that is wrong in his body. Thank you so so much for all of your thoughts and prayers.

Sarah and the family are so grateful! Many blessings.

Please pray for my precious cousin, Trey . . .

So I only have 3 first cousins total — Sarah, Amy & Connor. My cousin Sarah's son Trey, was sick last week with a fever, so they took him to the doctor and had his blood tested. It turned out that all of his blood counts were low, so they admitted him to the Children's Hospital in Columbus, OH to run various tests to determine the cause. Well, all of those tests came back negative, and they did another blood test, which told them that his blood cells aren't replenishing themselves currently. He is going in for a bone marrow biopsy tomorrow morning, and we are praying that the result doesn't point to Leukemia, which is a possible cause of what is going on. Please pray for my precious family, Trey, Sarah, Todd (his brother), Austin (his step-brother), Kim (my aunt, Trey's grandma), Sean (Trey's dad), Sean (Trey's step-dad), Amy (Sarah's sister, my cousin), Valerie (Amy's daughter) & Ethan (Amy's son). We are a very close family, and these kids are really being affected by this. Please pray for a favorable outcome, but most importantly God's will in all of this. Pray for strength for Trey and also for his mommy, Sarah. Thank you so much.

In the photos, Trey is the adorable blonde on the right of his mom Sarah. Todd is behind her and Austin next to him. Sarah's hubby, Sean is left of her.
