YEAH!!! joel we think too much alike my friend. ain't she cool! she's the roughest 3 month old i know. that anonymous commenter sounds very enlightened also.
I'd like to pose a question:
This is what we call Andrew's new favorite CD/DVD. It's the lead song and one of his favorites to sing when he wakes up from nap or in the morning and has his practice sessions with Mr. Bunny, Mrs. Bunny, and Big Bunny.
We bought this CD/DVD combo along with "The Toddler Bible" at Mardel last week b/c I was seriously concerned that Andrew was not just "not interested" in the Bible, prayer, God, or Jesus, but that was he was completely opposed to all of them. I was worried that our son was never to become a Christian! He never picked up his two other kids Bibles to read, he jumped out of my lap for another book if I suggested them, he squirms when we try to pray, he won't repeat the names Jesus or God... seriously, what is up with our kid?
NOW, he is singing scripture! It is so fun! We owe this change of heart and spirit to the "Hide'em in Your Heart" CD/DVD volume 1. If you've never heard of these, there are 2 volumes and they are scripture put to song for kids. They're great! Andrew is now obsessed with it. And I don't mind it at all because it has me learning and singing scripture, too. I will say, however, that the DVD was filmed in, like, 1990 because the outfits are hilarious!
Also, we have started our nightly family devotion time with the new Toddler Bible. We haven't gotten past Noah b/c Andrew wants to keep reading about Adam and Eve, the fruit, and then Noah's Big Boat. But, hey, he's learning the Bible for heaven's sake. Who says we have to read one story a night all the way through?
We're going to be praying the prayer of salvation before we know it...
We have some growth in our garden! So far, only the squash and beans have sprouted. But I'm confident that the bell peppers will soon. I'm not so sure about the tomatoes or the basil. However, I'm just excited that something is growing!!
On another growing note, our little belly sleeper has gotten really good at holding her head up. I snapped some good pics of her the other day. I may use one for her announcements, if I ever get around to sending one. We had such good intentions of not treating her like the second-born, but life just happens...
Apparently I do like to wear skintight clothes, even though on the quiz I answered no. I'll just chalk it up to my superhero personality coming out. Take the quiz and let me know who you are...
She already likes to talk.
She has my mother's hands.
She's so happy!
She stares adoringly at her daddy.
We have no more jelly! "Big deal" you might be thinking. Well, I'm not just talking about regular ole Smuckers or Bama - I'm talking about Papaw's jelly. One of Clark's dad's neighbors, Papaw, makes the best jelly. I'm obsessed with it. When we were visiting Pops and Caro on Easter, we got a much coveted jar of it. Now its gone!
Pops, if you're out there, only two things can fix this crisis:
-a new jar of jelly, of course
-a bright orange Kemp Jackets t-shirt, size medium (NOT!)
