2015 was over all a good year.

It had it's moments that I could have done without.

But those same times, that were hard, and heart breaking had these rare moments, that through the tough was perfection. Memories that I will forever remember!

Time has a way of getting away from you, from slipping away. Children grow up right before your eyes...
they go from baby....

to a little trouble making tot in the snap of a finger.

We have made huge strides with Blake's therapy, we've learned to pull up on furniture!

Which means our house is a little more messy than usual!

We've cut that mop on head.....

And now look WAY to old for mommy's liking!

We've gone on vacations,

Our biggest part of therapy this year is we've learned to take steps with our gait trainer (a bigger version of a walker) it's still a work in progress and it's going to take some time to get him to use it independently....but it sure was such a HUGE deal!

We've celebrated christmas.....

And are now looking forward to the new year to come! I have a's going to be the best one yet!

My child

You were born so fragile, so weak, so small.
You fought so hard, but we didn't know if you'd make it at all.

You worked so hard, so determined and strong.
Your journey was so scary, and heartbreaking, and long.

You continue to fight, against all obstacle and odds.
But your story was more than our was God's.

It was his plan for you to live, for you to fight, everyday.
With help of the doctors, the nurses, and all the people who pray.

It was His will, for you to show the world that miracles are real.
It was His will for you to strive, for you to grow, for you to heal!

I'm thankful everyday for the life he gave you.
You amaze me with every single thing that you do!

Because of you, your daddy and I have grown more in love with each other.
I'm thankful everyday to be called your mother!

I miss you the most when it's quiet. When it's dark and I lay trying to sleep. My brain hits a switch and I start to think. I wonder how your features would have changed. How you would have grown. How you would have interacted with your brother. I wonder what it would have been to be a mother of twins. To be exhausted, always have my hands full with the two of you. I wonder how I would have wrestled you two to the ground, lost it when you were both being crazy and loud. I wonder how I would have handled the stress. I wonder how different life would be. I wonder how great it would have been. When it's just me and my thoughts it's the worse. It's me yearning for what could have been. No one will ever fill that hole in my heart. It's been 2 years 7 months and 23 days since I held you in my arms- heart beating, your crinkled face, your soft skin. It's been too long since I felt you. I know this holiday you are spending with your great grandpa's and grandmas- you have friends in heaven, little ones playing with you. I know that there is a reason, and I know that you are taken care of but I miss you everyday. I love you Conor and I wish you the most merry Christmas with beautiful songs and lights and a happiness I know only those in heaven get to feel! I love you and I miss you everyday!

Merry and Bright

Tis the have Christmas tree needles on your floor, ornament glitter adorning every inch of your home, and hearing 100 different versions of "the Christmas song" playing in every place you go! We are starting to spread the holiday cheer here at the Hargis home. Glitter, music, and needles..... it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

"And think of him as living in the heart of those he touched.... For nothing loved is ever lost as he was loved so very much."

Sometimes all you need on a bad to see pictures of pure happiness! So I want to spread the love and share some Blakers smiles to brighten your day!

Are you happy yet?! Day brighter?!

Did that do it? Do you feel happy?

Yep that did it! Bringing smiles to the faces of anyone with a bad day! That's my child's job!

Videos galore!

Since I'm awful at keeping up the blog, I thought I'd make it up with videos! Blake has been working real hard in therapy these days, we are trying to prepare for preschool. Which by the way sounds crazy...Blake and preschool?! It can't be time for that! So in order for Blakers to go to preschool and not be required to have a wheelchair he must show that he can independently use his gait trainer/ we have been CONSTANTLY working on it. I'm sure he gets exhausted wears me out! But Zach and I hate to not push when he is so close, and we don't want him to just rely on a wheelchair because it's easier. So practice practice practice is what we do and I think we are getting pretty good at it!!

Just click the blue hyperlink to view the videos!

First steps without help from Momma, Daddy or Mimi!

This next video was the first time we took the locks off so he could turn and as you can see it's a learning process for sure!!! This is Blake trying out the gait trainer outside....a little wobbly but definitely still awesome!

And lastly a video that shows how funny and totally two Blakers can really be!! A video of Pure rotten-ness!!!!!
