LEAPIN' Half-Birthdays, Kiddos!

What kid doesn't make a HUGE deal about their half birthday?  It seems to be especially important to older kids when that 1/2 of a year means they are "way-older" than just... whatever age they are.  Plus, they can officially say that they are ______ and a half!     …

A Somber Subject

Today, as we ponder yesterday's verdict for accused (Bobby Cutts) in the murder of his pregnant girlfriend (Jessie Davis), my heart goes out to the families.   Watching some of the courtroom statements from the woman's family members, I couldn't help but be moved by the pain and lo…

A Bubbling Brook

Yippee!  I am actually able to post something today!    Several days last week, I was having trouble with my computer service.  They were attempting to upgrade the system (apparently) and we were on and off cable/phone for most of the week...  mostly OFF.   The frustrating part was when I would actu…

Baby Days

Well, these precious baby days with Shad seem to be going by faster than I would like them to.  He turns 25 weeks old today (or 5 1/2 months +).   He's reaching some significant milestones and I dread the day that he'll be crawling, which I'm sure will be soon.  A mobile baby means more things to ge…

Just Be Still - Psalm 46:10

There have been a few times in my marriage when my husband will see that I am too busy or perhaps agitated by circumstances or situations; even times when I get to arguing with him over something and he'll firmly say, "Be still."  As I'm writing this, it makes me giggle a little because you can only…

Love Displayed Through Adoption

This morning I woke up and had "adoption" on my heart.   I saw a special on television the other night about a little girl named Anna May who was adopted from China when she was two years old.  Evidently, the biological parents (who have other children) only wanted her placed temporarily (for what r…

Baby Talk

Listening to the wisdom of Grandma, "Dogs bark, cats meow, and babies cry." If there's something that all babies's CRY.  For some parents, it can become one of the most frustrating parts of parenthood.    You want to soothe them, but you don't know what to do!
I have to admit that crying …

Bouncing Baby Boy and JBQ Update

BOUNCING BABY BOYShad has found a new joy in his Johnny Jumper (the old fashioned bouncer that hangs on your door frame).  The first day we put him in it, he didn't do much of anything.  He moved a little (mostly around in a few circles) so I ended up taking him out just after a fe…

Police Helicopter Visit

Since the boys were feeling better, my husband decided to take them on a short field trip to see the Police Helicopter a few days ago.  Pete told them he would take them to see it and then Zeke kept bugging Pete to death until he was able to schedule them to go. That's one perk of having a husband t…
