"Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ, just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we would be holy and blameless before Him. In love He predestined us to adoption as sons through Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the kind intention of His will, to the praise of the glory of His grace, which He freely bestowed on us in the Beloved." Ephesians 1:3-6

Project 52: week twenty-five

December 8-14 
(written on December 28!)
So I'm a bit behind....but hopefully I am not going to let myself get too far behind!  The camera is coming out less and less the more kids we add, so it should be easy to keep the posts short and to the point:)
We celebrated Papa's birthday this week while we were together.  (Actual birthday is December 18) And he is sharing his fancy cookies and cream cupcake with the kids!

Mimi took Raelynn to her first movie theater experience! She was packed with a sucker and prepared to buy popcorn to help Raelynn sit still (she doesn't really sit still to watch movies at home!)  but she didn't even need to use them.  Raelynn sat through the whole movie "Frozen".  She had so much fun on her special date with Mimi.
These silly kids having fun at home.....
I was scheduled to be induced on Monday at 3pm. We had to get one last picture of us with the 3 kids before we put them down for nap and headed to the hospital.  (little did we know, the hospital called at 2pm and told me there was not a bed available for me! We ended up going in at 10pm instead)



December 9, 2013--10 days past the expected due date

On December 10, 2013 at 12:03pm, our lives changed yet again! We welcomed our second son and fourth child into the world.  All praise and glory to God, the giver of life.

Colt Michael weighed 10 lbs 1 oz and was 21.75 inches long.
look at those giant hands!

After Colt was born, both sets of grandparents and other family members came to visit and meet the newest Frazey. 
Our family of SIX!
We opted to stay in the hospital for the full two days:)  It was so nice to have that special time with Colt just holding him and getting to know him. We had a few visitors as well.

my kiddos:)

Enjoyed lots of cuddles--the nurse even told me they "look down upon co-sleeping" because I had fallen asleep with him on my chest at one point.  HAHA.  I'm definitely not a co-sleeper once we get home, but I was taking full advantage of all this cuddle time I could get in the hospital:)
On Thursday we headed home...

greeted by the excited siblings
Everyone wanted a turn to hold the new baby....

Then we said good-bye to Mimi and Papa because they were flying home early the next day.
Friday Colt had his first visit to the pediatrician. His height and weight were in the 95% (he had dropped a few pounds since birth) and his head was in the 50%.  We think that is what makes him seem so much smaller than Declan did, even though he was only 5 oz. less than him.  His head is so tiny!

Friday we also went to see Santa at the community center in our neighborhood.

 On Saturday, we celebrated Adele's 2nd birthday party via Facetime!! So thankful for technology!!
 Colt also got his first bath on Saturday! The kids enjoyed watching it. He did really well--hardly cried!

Snug as a bug after his bath:)
 On Saturday, we had project family Christmas picture with the Frazey family.  It went quite smoothly, considering we had a 4 day old baby and 3 kids up past their bed time to accomplish this mission.  It was so nice to be able to get a family photo with the kids' matching outfits!
