God Hears Us

Yesterday was the start of another fever/sickness thing with Tali. These things are getting familiar as she's had so many but they are still scary. Anyhow, the dr. wanted me to bring her in to see if it was UTI. Checking for UTI means...you got it-urinalysis. A urinalysis on a baby who is not potty trained means a catheter. A catheter means excruciating pain for your baby and an all-out awful and hard-to-forget experience for the both of you.

So, on the way to the dr's office I asked the Lord to help Tali pee in the little bag that they'll do as a first try thing so that the cath wouldn't be necessary. The whole way to the office I talked w/her about what would happen when we got in there and how once she "went" into the bag we could go home. Guess what? They put on the bag and we waited 10 minutes. Then I said, "Ok girl. You need to go right now into the bag." And my little lady "went"!!!!!!!! It was such an answer to prayer and I'm so grateful that she didn't have to go through the pain of the catheder. And of course, once again, all of it was for nothing because she doesn't have a UTI, she has some sort of puking flu. :)

Anyway, there is no way that she would have gone into that little bag apart from the Lord's doing. She is not potty trained and she has never gone on command. So I just wanted to share that as a reminder that He hears our prayers and He does answer them in very specific ways for His glory. May He be praised for His faithfulness!

Oh, and for those who are wondering-after this trip to see the dr., Tali said, "Duhd dob, Tah-ye! You a bid dull! Yay!!"

We'd love prayers for her quick recovery

Still Here

Given that my computer isn't hooked up yet at our new house, my blogging has been a bit...non-existent.  Sorry, friends.  Hopefully soon!


Here's the life update:

* We're officially moved in!  Each night as we get ready to go to sleep one of us can be found saying, "Isn't this house just such a blessing?!"  We're so grateful to God!

*  Owen is doing the army-crawl these days.  It's so weird to see a baby sort of crawl the "right" way after Tali and her months of scooting.

*  Tali is funny, as always.  She's been really into pretending as of late.  "I'm Mih-tuh Nat.  You Yay-nuh.  O-wen id Mih-siz Hanna."  Or, "Oh-tay, Mommy!  I'm Drahma.  I'm doe-een to Toe-op to teed da tids.  See ya yay-da!"

* There are tons of boxes to be unpacked but it's so good to finally be in our home!

As Tali would say, "See ya yay-da!"

Tali at the Bay

I'm behind on posting pictures...so here are some of Tali at the bay in CA. We didn't expect her to be super excited about the water because we thought it would be cold. It was extremely warm and, as you can see, she went straight for it even with a pretty dress on. Lots of fun memories!
