[FIRST…I have to say THANK YOU sweet friends for REJOICING with us at the AMAZING MIRACULOUS news of Isaac Temesgen’s good doc report! I feel like we need to break out of the cocoon and GO CELEBRATE! Totally think a trip to an Ethiopian restaurant may be in our future!!! Just wanted to tell you all how THANKFUL I am for your prayers as I know MANY of you have been prayer warriors through this…and I am so humbled and THANKFUL. We serve a God who does perfrom miracles still today…and I am still amazed!]
Now…just wanted to show you some of the craziness we are growing at our house…
Laney planted flowers this season in “her” flower bed. They were ALL in those little bags you buy for a buck…and she planted them randomly—and I’m afraid we never watered them. BUT…they GREW!
(See that bag she is holding—they are gummy butterflies! Daddy has been out of town and I took them all out to the candy shop! Lest you think I have it together…I don’t—and while Rich was out of town I used bribery through gummy butterflies (for Laney), a long gummy snake (for Parker) and little gummy frogs (for Frank)…and Isaac was a happy camper with his bottle:) Rich is back now (YAY!)…but you do what you gotta do to maintain peace:)
AND to maintain peace—we also called Aunt Reid who came to babysit Parker, Laney and Frank while I took ITY to the doctor yesterday. She ROCKS. She took the older two to get haircuts (we’ve slacked in that department with all our craziness)…and boy–Parker man returned with some craziness all right!
Aren’t those good mean faces?! He begged me to stay up late last night until daddy got home so he could show him his cool hair. I was weak and tired…and Parker, Laney and I cuddled up on the couch and had a movie night until he got home. He totally thought the hair was cool;)
And lastly—growth is also taking form in TUMMY TIME with ITY:). A word from Isaac…
[And for those of you who love photography and curious about camera settings–the last 3 tummy shots were taken with Canon 5D, 24-70 2.8 lens, natural light with settings: 1/160 shutter speed and 2.8 f.stop…the crazy hair pics are taken w/ same camera, same lens, natural light and 1/250 shutter speed (adjusted b/c the change in natural light) and 2.8 f.stop]
