Comfort and Joy

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

Five for Friday

Life is very busy right now but truly so rewarding.  Maggie is the sweetest baby and doing so well.  She is eating great and sleeping awesome!  She has her moments of being upset and fussy but overall she is truly a joy.  The boys are doing great with her and taking everything in stride.  I am really proud of both of them.  They love her and like to say hello to her but for the most part they leave her alone.  Miller has had a few moments where he has made me nervous like rocking her car seat a little too hard and trying to shove the paci in her mouth when she was dead asleep but overall they are doing great with her.

So a little Five for Friday...

1.  Be still my heart...don't you just want to eat her up?  She is such a sweet thing!
Quality time with my sweet girl. #cantgetenoughofher

2.  Miller really does love her and asks to hold her quite often.
Miller loves his baby sister. He loves to hold her and hold her hand. #healreadysharedhiscoldwithher

3.  We had a super fun morning last Saturday.  The post tomorrow will share more.

4.  The boys found our ski gear and have pretended they are skiing everyday this week.  Miller also pretends he is a pirate.

5.  I feel like sickness and sadness have been all around lately and yesterday when I opened up Jesus Calling the devotion really spoke to me.  You receive this gift (Peace) by trusting Me in the midst of life's storms.  Thank Me when things do not go your way, because spiritual blessings come wrapped in trials.  ...for I have overcome the world.  Trying to trust him and rest in His peace today.


Happy Friday friends!

Ah...Miller! Helen's favorite things to do with Peter were to bounce his bouncy seat (i.e., try to slingshot him across the room) and help his swing go higher and higher. Yikes. She was also a pro at trying out all the baby gear. Middles certainly keep life interesting and fun! Looks like y'all are doing really well. Maggie is just beautiful!
