Dear Family and Friends,
Happy New Year! If we are not seeing you in person this holiday season we hope you have a beautiful and blessed time. Also, know you are on our minds and in our hearts. This year has been one of a lot of exciting changes for us and we thought it might even be worthy of an update to let you know all that has been going on.
Not soon after graduation we found out the most wonderful news of the whole year, we are having another baby! So, the past seven months have been full of adjustments and challenges. For DrOgg learning the ropes of his first year of residency and of course for MrsOgg caring for an active toddler while pregnant have been challenging to say the least. And of course Ogglet turned two this October. We have been surprised daily her amazing growth and learning these past months. Not only is she talking more than ever but, she likes to put together puzzles, learn her alphabet, numbers, colors and shapes. Basically anything we can teach her she is willing and eager to learn which makes all the “terrible” parts of being two not seem so bad.
All in all it’s been a pretty amazing year. Of course now we are trying to finish last minute preparations for the new baby girl and hope to enjoy our last 6 months with daddy before he has to start his rotations at out-of-town hospitals. In spite of all this joy and the blessings we’ve been given we have already learned and will probably continue to discover that these last 5 years of DrOgg’s training are going to be the most trying. Please keep us in your hearts and your prayers that we will be able to make the most of these years and stay strong in the Lord and close as a family. Thanks for all of your support in small and big ways that helped us to get this far.
