Adventures


For my birthday I was extremely blessed to get a bike, trailer, and child seat so I can get out with all three kids. I was able to get everything on sale/clearance so it all ended up being super reasonable. I am so thankful!! The kiddos loved it too!

A Fan

Music isn't something I concern myself with too much. In fact, Matt makes the major music decisions for our family. Musicians, therefore, don't really get my attention much. However, I must say that I am a HUGE fan of Lecrae. He is a phenomenal rapper and more importantly a serious and solid man of God and that comes out in his lyrics. I just can't get over how amazing I think he is! So, I just have to share. Even if you don't like rap- be encouraged by his lyrics and genuine obsession with our Lord.




Good Morning Anabel

A New Challenge


video

The request: "go nigh-night", "take a nap", "stay in bed", etc. This new challenge has taken hours of training and discipline on our part as parents- as well as a fair amount of discouragement and exhaustion. However, our perseverance was never rewarded with obedience so we resorted to a more practical approach.

Doctor's Stats

Yesterday we had the girls two month check up (a little past the two month mark). And wow, they are certainly growing!

Adelyn:
weight: 10 lb 7 oz
height: 22.5 inches
head circumference: 37.2 (centimeters I think?)

Anabel:
weight: 9 lb 6 ounces
height: 22.5 inches
head circumference: 37.3 (centimeters?)

Adelyn was 8.13 weight last month and Anabel was 7.6 I believe. So basically, they are gaining weight very well. I was giving Anabel expressed milk for the last 2.5 weeks because she was not gaining weight well enough nursing alone as it was still hard for her to get it right. The doctor said that returning her to nursing was a good idea because it is so much easier and she is doing great now. I wasn't sure if she would nurse after taking a bottle for so long but she did better than ever this morning- and actually seemed full! Praise God!!

We are very thankful for two very healthy and happy little girls!
