Super Bowl Sunday

This is what made our Sunday at my (Shilo) parent's house:  Annabel taking 5 steps (!) to her big brother.  She has what is called 'hypotonia' which is low or diminished muscle tone or tension.  She turned 20 months yesterday and is continuing her physical therapy every week.  There will definitely be tears of joy when she officially starts walking.  Until then, we wait on the Lord's perfect timing with her.  She of course, doesn't seem concerned about it at all.  Her sweet precious life teaches us daily about entrusting our children to His constant care. 
(oh yeah, and go Giants! That's for you Popie)

Some days as a mom...

I can't help relate to good ol' Bessy (below).  How do moms do it who nurse twins or more?  I sh-udder at the thought.

Last Sunday, the newest lil' man was dedicated at our church.  Committing to training our child in the way he should go, unto the glory of God.  My (Shilo's) parents were able to be there as well, first time with any of our kids.  Afterwards, they threw a celebration and surprised us with unexpected gifts.  So blessed!
