The Worm




"The Twins" (as we affectionately call them) had a little farming expedition in the yard today. They eagerly dug for worms and then had a lengthy conversation about their new little friend. Here's a snippit:

Tali: Oh Owey! Isn't he soooo cute? He's soooo lih-tul!

Owen: Yah, Tal. (Then Owen starts poking the worm with a stick and it begins to burrow underground again.)

Tali: Oh, Owen!!!! He DOESN'T like that. That's skay-ween him, Owey. Now he's leaving. That's so sad! Oh, Owen. Isn't he just so cute? Do you like worms, Owey?

Owen: No, Tal. I DON'T like them!

Tali: Hey, how about you be, "Farmer Owen," ok?

Owen: No! (In disgust.) I'm not "Farmer Owen." I'm dust, "Owey."

Please Pray for Eli

As of Monday morning, Tali, Owen, & Addie have a new cousin to love! Eli David (Josh's sister and brother-in-law's little guy) made his appearance via c-section and is spending some time in the NICU before his mommy & daddy get to take him home. He was 5 lbs 2 oz (I hope I'm getting that correct!) and is undergoing tests to determine what exactly is going on with him as his blood work didn't come back with the numbers hoped for and he's under the lights full time for high biliruben right now.

Please pray for Eli, that his body would be perfectly healed and that he'd be able to live a healthy life. Please pray for Amy; this is her first baby and it was an awful labor experience to put it mildly (think induction late Sunday afternoon, 3 hours of pushing beginning Monday morning that ended in a c-section.) Now she's healing from a c-section and barely getting to see her new baby at all for a variety of reasons. I can't imagine how hard that must be. I know they'd love your prayers as they seek to trust God through this!

I guess that March is NICU month around here...so glad that God is there, even in the NICU.

Please Pray for Brandt

Our dear friends, Aaron & Andrea, have been faithfully trusting God for years waiting for Him to grant them the joy of becoming parents. On Monday, 9 weeks earlier than expected, their little boy made a surprise visit. God's mercy and kindness are surrounding them all as they pray for Brandt's growth and physical strengthening during his NICU stay. These friends are heroes to me; their faith in a sovereign and loving good God makes me believe in Him all the more. They inspire me to see the all satisfying love of Christ above all else. It is really an honor to know them and watch them bringing our Savior glory by their trust in Him.

Please pray for Brandt. And even if you don't know them, I know they'd be encouraged to hear that you're praying for them. Please leave a little comment on Andrea's blog to let them know!

Addie Beth and the Tulips





Recently Josh and I started getting a bit more serious about learning how to use our rockin' camera. I've always loved to take pictures and have an interest in photography but haven't really done anything more to improve until now. I've been playing around with settings, practicing our new skills and taking tons and tons and TONS of pictures. Here are some of my favorites from today. (Click on the last one to enlarge it and check out those incredible blue eyes that she has!) Which picture do you like best?

Loving My Two Year Old





Pretty much everything that Owen says right now is cute. He is just flat out adorable to me and I love to hear him talk. Here are some quotes that I've been storing up from my boy:

O: Mommy? Kin you please take dat monstuh boe-uhd out of the liveen woom?
Me: Honey, it's not a monster. It's just the ironing board. I know you don't see it very often.
O: Way-ul...kin Gwamma pweese take huh boe-uhd home wif her?
Me: Well, it's not Grandma's ironing board, it's Mommy's.
O: No. It's Gwamma's.

(You don't need me to tell you who does the ironing around this house.)
-------------
O: Wayd uh secind! How'did dis gid in he-uh?
-------------
O: Mommy? I miss you. Oh! Dare you ah!
-------------
O: Oh! Ah-dee's eyes ah black! Dey look like boo-behwees!
-------------
Me: Owen, Jesus can help you to obey right now.
O: Yah. Becuz he suffuhd and tempted.
------------
O: Oh no! Tahlee is gwumbuling!
