Random Things:

1.) My little girlie is getting quite big.




I tell her every day that she's not allowed to do big girl things, and she attempts them anyway. She's so disobedient like that. I'm feeling her "babyness" lessen every day. I'm not liking it, yet I'm also getting glimpses of the fun to come as she is blooming a little more personality. Not that there's much personality yet. When Jonah was that age, I could list all these qualities of his personality as a baby that ended up ringing true for who he was as a toddler and pre-schooler. There were just these obvious things....his laid-back attitude, his ability to focus intensely on something, his attention to detail, his observant nature, etc. I can't tell you a thing about who this girl is going to be! She's mostly quiet and happy, but she also has this penchant for drama that shines through at random times. When it does, she can be quite expressive. She's not saying any words. (Surprise, surprise. She's at home with me and Jonah all day. Who could get a word in edgewise?) I've been thrilled with her eating. I think our baby food days are numbered. She's loving table food. One day last week, she ate a grilled cheese sandwich and tomato soup for lunch and had steak, potatoes, and corn for dinner. I was so happy! This one's an eater! I tried taking more pictures of her and of Jonah, but my camera has been giving me so many problems, so these are all I've got. (I'll get some of Jonah soon and be sure to update you on his little life as well in another post.) My sweet husband went today and bought me some fancy new batteries with a fancy new charger, and these things are supposed to make my photo-taking life easier.

2.) This has been a hard week. But it's been such a good week too. Every single day has brought reminders of the newness of the Lord's mercies (Lamentations 3:22-23), and I am so thankful for that. I've been able to spend quality time and have quality conversations with my sweet friends this week, and it's just what my heart needed. I didn't know it's what my heart needed until the Lord so graciously gave it and allowed it to be healing.

3.) I bought my first pair of Spanx this week, and I'm kinda sad about it. I knew about gravity and all, I just didn't know these things would happen in my twenties. I also just realized that I'm starting to really like shopping at Steinmart. I'm pretty sure I'm old now.

My jaw is on the floor! Is Parker really eating steak and potatoes??? I have a hard time getting Preston to even eat stage 3 baby food because he hates the textures. He'll eat crackers and Cheerios, and bananas but that's the only non-baby food things he'll eat.

Hannah--she looks like such a big girl! I mean, she should but i haven't seen her in 7 months so I was shocked! I love her head of hair!! I think she and Piper sound alike...quiet at time, but very expressive and dramatic too! What are we going to do w/these girls! :-) Great pics! Oh, I'm planning to come to Tyler in April sometime...I'll email or call when I know more!

Stein Mart isn't for old people only- I loved shopping there for many moons! But, now that you mention it, I believe it was my grandma that started taking me there.. but they have some reallly cute stuff and I love their shoes too!

She IS getting big! WOW!! I doubt you need the spanx girl. You're so tiny! With the serving, I like to try to remember the verse Col 3:23 "Whatever you do work at it with all your heart as working for the Lord not for men...It is the Lord Christ you are serving." Just remember you're serving the Lord when you serve others, and we should be jumping at every chance to serve Jesus! Miss ya!

Just realized I misspelled Spanx. How embarrassing....
