Pictures

Okay, some new pics of the kids. Enjoy.

First we have Lila modeling her new dresses. They are so cute and pretty, just what a little girl needs to have. (Besides, there will come a day in the future when she will not want to wear a dress so I have to take advantage of this time when I have all the say in what she wears.) Which dress do you like the most? My personal favorites are the second and fourth.






She is so chubby compared to just a few weeks ago. Just look at some of the previous pics I’ve posted and you will see the difference. And it’s all due to breast milk.

She sometimes takes a pacifier now. I don’t mind her having it when she just wants to suck on something but I’m happy she doesn’t like it so much as to be getting addicted to it. Logan never took one, no matter how much I tried to get him to.


“What do you think of my doll?” She was probably the same size as the doll when she was born.


We are making a potty push, so here is Logan enjoying a video on the potty. Obviously I don’t leave him alone there. (And a reading push. Can you see the flashcards stuck to objects?)


I caught him waving at someone. Good thing they couldn’t see his cute butt. Probably would have grabbed it. 🙂


Look who decided to play in the baby’s bed.


Hugging his teddy, on the potty again. He is actually doing well with his potty training. For two whole days he didn’t have a single accident. I love that.


Here is my handsome boy on his rocking horse. I love the beautiful smile.


Mr. Messy – this has got to be the worst he has done yet. It was in his eyes, ears and hair, not to mention on his lap. Sometimes I feed him when I am not up to cleaning a mess, but at other times he has to feed himself so I can eat. More often than not I am also nursing the baby while eating. Busy, busy me.


My little darling sick with a fever. I’m not sure what it was but he is feeling better now. Most likely teething.


He finally fell asleep.

Things That Make My Week

This week two things have happened to both make my week good and bad. Well, not bad in a terrible sense but more like very difficult.

The bad thing is that the washer broke down. The repair men have been here no less than four times this week and it is still not fixed. First it was the motor, then the timer, then something else, then the new motor was actually not new and needs to be replaced again. And I am still waiting for them to show up again and get it going. The good thing about this is that the machine is under warranty so the company replaces parts for free, but I’m starting to wonder if it’s worth all the trouble.

I’ve been doing laundry by hand all week – Logan’s pee-pee laundry, Glad’s clothes that he needed for his trip, the baby’s diapers. Actually, I decided to make it easy for myself and use disposable diapers until the machine is fixed, but there is still LOTS of laundry, including bedding. All my sheets are dirty and will have to be done by hand if this thing isn’t fixed soon. Logan peed on several of them this week, so I can’t leave those for too long. And with Glad gone I am doing everything myself. I’ll be happy when he gets back.

The good thing is that a special prayer was answered this week. First a little background. For some time now I’ve wanted to get a rocking horse for Logan.  Not because he wanted one, but because it is something fun for a child his age and I just wanted to get it for him. You know how when you’re a parent you sometimes want to get things for your child “just because”. A shop near our house had a cute one that wasn’t expensive, but it was money we couldn’t afford to spend when there are so many other more important things to buy, so I had to not think about it. A few days ago while looking at a picture of a rocking horse, I told Logan, “Let’s pray for one.” He folded his little hands and I prayed a simple prayer, “Jesus, if you want Logan to have a rocking horse, please give it to him.” Then I forgot about it.

Yesterday we got a parcel of things for the children, mostly clothes, but when I opened it, the first thing I noticed was…you guessed it…a rocking horse! I was so excited because this was my desire, not even something we really needed – it was just a want, and here the Lord went and gave it to us. Maybe He was just waiting for me to pray for it. It may not be as fancy as the one I wanted to buy, but seeing how much Logan enjoys using it makes me happy, and it was a chance to show him that Jesus answers prayer when we ask. That truly made my week.

Thank you, Tina, for the parcel. The baby clothes are just beautiful, and as for the horse, you have made a little boy and his mommy very happy.
