Koen Hunter Davis was born this evening! Jessie is doing really well. However, baby Koen is having some difficulties breathing due to pneumonia in both lungs. Unfortuneately, he must stay in the nursery all night and get some oxygen. We need to surround this family with prayers of healing and patience.
While I was at the hospital, Koen's color seemed good and he seemed to cry more (this is good). I got a couple pictures to share, but am in a hurry tonight. Will post some tomorrow.
Thanks in advance for your prayers!

Jackson Ryan, Baby A, is currently on a c-pap machine. This essentialy forces air in his lungs to keep his respiratory rate under control. He seems to still be struggling a bit, but has good output and decent coloring. He has a full head of soft, fluffy blond hair and likes to be cuddled on his tummy.
Noah Westley, Baby B, was placed on a vent this morning when they found a sm air leak in his lungs. This has caused and area of his lungs to collapse. Since being on the vent he is resting better and adequately perfusing oxygen, but we'd much rather he be weaned off asap! He seemed comfortable and able to move around better, but his urine output is poor so he is holding on to too much fluid.
This family needs your love and prayers right now. As mommy & daddy (Matt & Kerri) sit and wait for the time they get to hold their little ones for the first time. Please help them find strength and patience. As for the boys, we need them to keep fighting and not tire out on this long road. We are very optimistic of thier recovery especially with your prayers surrounding them.

I will stop rambling now...
Little baby Owens #2, whom we affectionately call Leah Hope, was curled and cuddled, tumbling and floating, yawning and sucking her hands. It immediately put me at ease and I have been a happy mommy since (except when Ayla threw a fit at lunch). Leah has long froggy legs like her big sissy and had them crossed much like Ayla always has since birth. She also had her arms crossed with her hands in her face making it Very hard to get her "head shots" taken. But, Im sure she is a beauty queen already!
We were talking the other day at our small group about listening and learning to recognize God's promptings, His voice. One thing we read was if you feel anxious it is not Him you are hearing. I know, my nervousness came from me. I need to remember to check myself at the door and remind myself who is in control.
What a great day it has been! We're going to get our fam pics taken by a friend today soon- So excited, better rest up!

Lil baby girl #2 is moving around alot lately. Its SO great be feeling her tumbles and kicks. Daddy was even able to feel her last night. YAY!
Ayla is growing up so fast and such a sweet girl. She is speaking more and more daily- she loves to repeat things and is always polite saying "peas & tank ou". I got a break today from my lil toddler, my sis n law watched her so I could visit a friend and do some Christmas shopping. It was really nice, I got alot done, but Im tired! We just put Ayla in bed and she waved her babydoll's hand to me as she and daddy went to her room. SO CUTE!
Oh yeah... we SOLD our house! :) So thank you for all your prayers.

We have delt with many negotiations recently and both parties have came to an agreement!
Yahoo. maybe. It still has to go through the rig-a-ma-row of selling a home. SOOO.. we are quieting our excitement and waiting to see how it pans out. In the meantime, if you have time please say a quick prayer for the buyer, realtors, & sellers (us) as it will be good for all parties.
Alot of times its so easy to go to Him and talk and "brag" about the wonderful stuff I see, touch, and experience in my life. But, what about the unspoken miracles & plans He has for me. Why does it take me til it smacks me in the face to thank Him or ask for his help?
I know life is busy, but there is no excuse for me to not place Him in front of every single situation in my life. So why not start now?

On Sunday she started saying "thank you" & "welcome"..... let me tell you, it is so sweet to hear! Other new words include cracker, cake, mamaw, papaw, mimi, no. Monday, we caught her snooping for her Christmas presents for the first time, also. I put a few gifts we bought on Saturday in the spare bedroom closet. Jeff came home for lunch just as she was pulling a dolly stroller out of the closet. He said her eyes were as big as pancakes! She came out to the kitchen screaming for us to open it. It was hilarious. Last but not least.. she came up to me yesterday, tapped my leg, and said "mama, I wan jews" :translation for those w/out toddlers- She wants juice. AH! It was the first time she really clearly put words together like that! I hopped to it and got her her jews, I mean, juice. hehe
Now we're trying to figure out what 2 kids will be like. Im sad and glad and kinda scared. Sad that Ayla will not be the baby anymore. Glad God trusts us to be parents again. And scared, well, I almost can't even remember what to do with a little baby anymore. Jeff happily reminds me that we really didn't know what to do before Ayla either! ha
Hope everyone is having a great COLD week. I sure don't like it!

We have two beautiful girls now in our lives now! That's right folks we're having a girl! :) I am in complete and udder shock! I really thought we were having a boy. It is still early so we're not painting the room or anything, but its a fun thought of having two sweet sisters close in age. Names have been thrown around for some time now-- but I don't know if I have clearence to release anything! hehe Baby Girl #2 looked great... cute legs (like her daddy), swallowing well, and wiggling like a wiggle worm!
Thanks for everyone's prayers! Have a great weekend.
