Update on the kids

Today when I picked the kids up from church I heard the words every parent longs to hear:
"Your children have the best manners of any children I've ever been with. Emma said, 'May I please have my snack?' I don't even use the word 'May...'"
This was of course exciting, but Emma usually is pretty polite, especially when food is involved. The other teacher promptly came up and said, "Oh yes, and Caleb kept telling us, 'Don't talk to me!!'"
Oh well, we'll just have to keep working on it...

2 week check-up

Noah was 7lbs. 4oz. at birth, and the doctor said they normally give babies two weeks to get back to their birthweight. Well, at Noah's 2 week check up he was 8lbs., 7 1/2 oz. So, I think he is doing okay!!!

A lesson from Noah...

Well, things are pretty crazy in our life, needless to say. Still working on renting the house, etc...still working on a job for Ben (although we are extremely thankful he is able to work for the landscaping business next door until he finds something else...just means he works REALLY hard and comes home REALLY dirty). Still working on getting some sleep! =)

But anyway, I learned a lesson from Noah that I've been trying to keep in mind in the midst of all this chaos. I almost forgot what it was like to have a newborn...literally, I could stare at him all day. I love him so much...the other day I was just crying, holding him, thinking how much I absolutely love and adore him. Then a crazy thought came to mind, "Could this possibly be the way God feels about me???" And of course, not only does God love me that much, but even more than I can fathom...And so I realized that if God loves me that much...then everything is going to be okay.
