Jake also began dabbling in consuming solids. He isn't such a fan. He really needs to work on that whole swallowing the food rather than spitting maneuver. We tried organic oatmeal. NOPE. Messed up his sleep and other unmentionable things enough for us to know he isn't ready. Next we tried mashed avocado, and YES. He tolerates it some.
Big Brother Stayton started 2013 off with THIS:
Last Sunday he went to the recreation center to shoot hoops with his buddies, and as he came down from a shot he landed on a friend's foot and his ankle rolled. And popped. The next morning it was HUGE, so I loaded the boys up and went to the foot doctor, and by X-ray they found a fractured lower fibula. (a.k.a. ankle bone). Sure has made some of the simplest things challenging, but he seems to be in less pain and getting around better now. So maybe he is on the mend!
We spent time getting the little cousins together to love on each other...
Our church has started a new 40-day challenge that is really good for me so far. We love our church, and this series is really hitting home...with topics such as "stop living for the little things, and live for the one greatest thing." It really makes you look at your life and think about how to make priorities and set goals that matter...that are Christ-seeking and striving. That make a difference somehow. Kinda hard when I feel like my "circle of influence" is so small. Like, VERY small. You know, pretty much just me and Jakester most of the time. But it gives me a new vision for the support group I help lead, and how to be a better friend and wife, mother, sister, daughter, etc. I'm loving it. :)
We have enjoyed time with our friends, and getting our adopted littles together. We joke that these two will marry someday, and in this photo it actually looks like he is asking permission already. Ha! We love having friends that have been where we have been, shared in similar heartaches, walked the adoption road together. God definitely blessed us with them!
Jake also started sitting up this week! He is so good at it already! It amazes me.
He also turned 6 months old yesterday! Where the heck is the time going??? Next thing we know he will be applying for college. Seriously, this kid is smart! And active....boy I already have a difficult time keeping up with him!
|Is it just me? Or is he the cutest baby in the whole entire world?!|
Kat French to create a logo based upon a 2-color scheme of warm navy and copper. I tell you what...she is amazing! Check it out!
This logo makes me proud to have this business. I already have 3 small jobs underway, and 1 possible large job...with another medium job about 2 months down the road. So the business is definitely good! God is blessing us beyond belief. Literally. God is good...all the time!
