Thankful Thursday on Thanksgiving

This year I am thankful for...

1) a healthy baby boy who is a joy and delight
2) a faithful husband who has a heart to be a good husband and father
3) a family who is healthy body, mind, and spirit
4) a God who is faithful and good throughout
5) the challenges that happen in life that remind us of what is important and challenges our faith to grow

Thankful Thursday

This week I am thankful for...

1) My baby getting rid of his nasty little cough...the trick was saline solution and sucking before every feeding
2) Feeling better and my cough getting better (not so thankful for the asthma diagnosis I got in relation to the cough)
3) An extra day with my dad due to nasty weather earlier in the week
4) Fun new tupperware I got for hosting a party (Rusty equated Tupperware as my jewelry since I don't wear jewelry and error on practicality)

7 months old

Working on crawling

JT is now seven months old.  The floor is where he likes to spend his time rolling around and trying to get his arm and legs coordinated to crawl.  He is able to get up on all fours and rock so it won't be long.  His next favorite activity is jumping on your lap.  As you can see in the pictures he has some good faces that he makes.  He is such a fun little boy.  He is enjoying the new foods.  He seems to enjoy all the fruits, sweet potatoes, and squash.  He tolerates grean beans and doesn't seem to want anything to do with peas and carrots at this time.  His new sound is "ba".  So you will just hear him going "bababa" to anyone that will listen.  He is now at around 15 pounds 7 ounces and is 28 1/2 inches long.  We are wearing nine month stuff b/c of his long arms and legs.  He continues to be a joy and we are enjoying every minute with him.

Thankful Thursday

This week has been tough but I am thankful for...

1) the roads not being icy even though it is snowing
2) Rusty finding some free tires to put on the Bronco to get us by until there is a miracle and we can afford to buy new ones
3) Having the hope that we will not struggle financially forever and that someday we will have enough money to cover the basics and get out of debt
4) Getting to go to the chiropractor today (my back is all out of whack)

Halloween pictures and JT hanging out at his Grandma Karens

Thankful Thursday on Sunday

This week I am thankful for...

1) The possibility that JT will not have to have surgery.  The neurosurgeon just wants to keep an eye on it and have another MRI done when he is a year old.  My prayer is that God will unteather the hemangioma from the spine by the next MRI.
2)A fun halloween where JT got to do his first cakewalk and win and go on his first hay ride
3)That God miraculously provided time for me to complete my extra work so that I didn't have to do it over the weekend
