Comfort and Joy

I will turn their mourning into gladness; I will
give them comfort and joy instead of sorrow.
Jeremiah 31:13

Amazing father

David has always been the most amazing father to our boys.  I am constantly in awe of the way he loves them, teaches them, plays with them, and even disciplines them with love.  He is also wonderful with our friends kids as well.  This was at a Christmas breakfast we went to in our neighborhood the other day.  They all wanted in his lap so he could read to them.

Bathing together

The boys are now bathing together and I love it.  They love it too.  Austin now asks for Miller by name (Meemo) when he is getting in the bath and Miller just belly laughs at Austin the whole time they are in there.
Taken with my I-Phone and yes, my tub is green...welcome to the 70's!

Loves to build, doesn't love a picture

Austin has always been pretty amazing at building with blocks.  The other night I helped by building the base but he built the tower by himself.  I couldn't believe how high it went.  You can tell by the pictures that he wasn't super excited about getting his picture made with the tower.

Junior Cotillion

Last night some of our small group girls were presented at Junior Cotillion.  Halley and I (along with 2 of our girls, Catherine and Carlee) went to see them presented.  It was a special night for them and I was glad to be a part of it.

trying to get a pic

The other night David and I tried to get a picture of the boys in their matching outfits (which David is not a fan of the matching outfits but I love it).  They did not want to cooperate.  I am noticing a theme here, Austin not being a fan of having his picture taken.  Oh well, thought I would still share my cute boys.

He's going to be active

In the last few weeks Miller has become an active little guy.  Always reaching for anything in sight.  We brought down the Exersaucer and Jumperoo and he LOVES them.  He loves playing with all the toys (chewing on most of them).  It is so fun watching him learn and explore new things.

Please pray

Dear friends of ours lost their baby girl last Thursday morning.  She never woke up.  The autopsy confirmed that she had meningitis.  I am heartbroken for them.  Evie Grace was 20 months old and had a twin sister.  Today was the visitation, funeral, and burial.  I went to the Visitation, David went to everything.  I couldn't stay at the Funeral.  It hit way to close to home.  David is stronger than me and I am so proud of him for being there for them.  Please pray for the Harrison's.  Pray for God's loving grip to be felt so strongly by both of them.  Pray for their other little girl Ramsey.  Pray for their marriage.  Pray for their extended family.  Pray that their house sells (it has been on the market for a little while).  Pray for them to hold strong to each other and to the Lord.  Just pray.
