I would like to announce and welcome the newest member to the family. Bowen Daniel Schweitzer was born at around 9:10 this morning, weighing 6 lbs 10 oz. I am not sure that I spelled it correctly but I will have some pictures to share sometime soon.
Happy 1st Birthday! I can't believe that it has been one year since you were born. On July 9th at 8 pm. you came in weighing 7 lbs and 9oz. and you were a wonderful addition to the Wiechman clan (and dad was very happy that you were a boy). I hope that you have a wonderful birthday and we are very glad that god picked us to be your parents. We love you and can't wait to see what you amaze us with next!
Please keep prayers coming in for Stella and also for my sister Jessie and baby Schweitzer, she is still on bed rest and we are not sure if the baby will stay in there until August 9th or not. Please pray that it stays in as long as it can so we can have a strong playmate for Gavin!
here are some pictures from over the last year. Enjoy! And thank you for checking in on the Wiechman's!
Dear Diary, As I write this I have many emotions, thoughts words and feelings that I want to share. I have been in a bad mood or something these last few weeks. While I had a wonderful time at the reunion this last weekend it was bittersweet fun. You see when mom came to live with me March 17th, 2008 (after she was given the 2-5 months survival diagnosis) she had 3 ‘goals’ if you will, for her to make it to.
1) Mini-family reunion June 2008- 2) Gavin’s 1st Birthday- 3) The birth of Jessie’s baby-
The reunion has passed, Gavin will be 1 next Wednesday and Jessie went into premature labor last week (they were able to stop it) and is on bed rest. The doctors will probably let her have the baby when she goes in to labor again. Baby wasn’t due until August 9th. So as I see this list dwindling down I am sad. Mom’s tummy is growing harder and harder with tumors, she is throwing up and I don’t know what to do or how to act. People keep thinking there words help…but the truth is no words help…
