The pumpkin patch

We went to the pumpkin patch the weekend before Collins was born and I am little late posting but I wanted to share some great pics from that day. Jack loved the hay ride out to the patch and riding on the tractors! Collins will get to join in on the fun next year!
Enjoy, Courtney

I want TEN more!!!

Where do I start??? Things have been going so great. We are home now, we left on Saturday. I cannot say enough about how great St. Vincents was, the service, doctors, nurses.... everything. We got plenty of room service and you know how much I love room service =). They were so wonderful to Collins too! Our little bit weighed 6 lbs 8 oz the day we left, but nursing is going great and I know he is starting to gain. I am having so much fun dressing him in all the little premie boutique outfits! Night times are going pretty good, I surely cannot complain! Jack is being a great big brother. He comes running whenever Collins cries and he loves to watch us change him. He is fascinated with me feeding Collins, and makes sure that everyone knows that Bubba is drinking milk. He hasn't had a bit of Jealousy. The whole processes has been a joy to watch, really. I told Brendan I want ten more the other night, and he didn't argue with me!!!! There is no question both of these boys have a special place in our hearts. On a really sweet note - Right after the delivery while they were recovering me and Collins, Brendan pulled out of his pocket a gorgeous diamond neckless. It has three diamonds on it representing each of our babies. It is so pretty and full of meaning.
Thank all of you so much for thinking about us and praying for us. We enjoyed all the hospital visits and calls. We are especially enjoying the yummy meals that we have started receiving!

Our Miracle has arrived!!!

Collins Brock Fuller arrived 10/15/08 at 7:30am. He is so tiny and adorable!!! He has the best disposition and is so sweet.
He was 7 lbs 0 oz. 20 inches long. He had some difficulties breathing in the beginning and temp issuses, but all of that has resolved! We are all doing great and just enjoying him so much. Big brother Jack is having a hard time being away from us so please pray for him. We are hoping to be home on Saturday.

Almost there!!!

Collins will be here next week!! It's hard to believe that 9 months is up. This has been such a long time coming so we are MORE than excited. I think we both would agree that having two sons has not quite set in yet. Both of us waited for a while to let our hearts believe that this was actually going to happen so it doesn't feel like 9 months have passed - more like 4 months. God has given us a huge dose of amazing grace. Grace is when you get something you don't deserve - and we both know that we don't deserve this. So we sure are grateful for His amazing grace in the form of Collins!
So October 15th at 8am Collins will be here.
It dosen't get much better than this!!!!!!!!
Living on cloud 9!!
Brendan and Courtney
