My little buddy that I haven't met yet, Baby Micah, needs our prayers. He has grown big enough to get his open heart surgery, and he's having it on Monday. Many of you have been praying for him all along, but if you haven't prayed for him yet, we hope you will pray about his surgery. I'm sure his parents would love it if you stopped by their blog to read about it and leave them a comment to let them know you'll be praying. Open heart surgery for a sweet little baby is a scary thing to think about. We love you, Micah, and we'll be praying for you!
It's Works for Me Wednesday! If you're a new visitor, welcome! Our posts are usually written from Jonathan's point of view, but on Wednesdays, I sometimes take over.
My current favorite book is The Little House by Virginia Lee Burton. You know that I already love this author. Mommy remembers this book from one of her college classes on reading. (Can you believe that they even have reading classes in college?) We brought this library book with us on our weekend trip, and I think I must have requested it as a bedtime story seventeen times. It's a great book, little buddies. I hope you can find it at your library!
We just had a fantastic time cheering Daddy on in his first marathon since I've been in the world. He beat his personal best time and we're so proud of him. We have lots of stories to tell, but we're tired, and we're all going to bed in our own rooms. Little buddies, in case you wonder, it's very hard to fall asleep in a hotel room with your parents. It can be done, but it takes awhile, depending on how much talking they need to do. Anyway, I'm posting two movies just for you to help you be patient until tomorrow when we'll hopefully be awake enough to share some pictures and tell some stories. (By the way, I hope you'll comment with an idea or two on Mommy's post below. She got a couple of helpful responses, but she'd LOVE some more. She needs HELP!)
OK, here are the penguins...
and the jellies! Enjoy, little buddies!
As you know, I'm not as into crafts as my mom would prefer. I'd rather build with the crayons than color with them.
What I said about my hands when Mommy came to get my from my nap:
Yesterday, as my mom mentioned, was a little bit too full for us. Mommy likes to have more wiggle room in her day, and I like to have time to play at home. Usually that happens, but not yesterday! Here's what we did yesterday:
- A quick visit with Great Grandma
- Gymnastics class
- Dinner with good friends at their house
It's Works for Me Wednesday! I'm not contributing this week due to an over-full day yesterday, but hop on over to Rocks in My Dryer (you'll see it in the sidebar to the right) and take a look. It's great fun to see all the tips people share and click on the ones that pertain to you and your family. Enjoy!
You might remember this post I wrote about the cardigan hack for a little girl. Well, Shannon at Rocks in My Dryer did it again...she found this post for turning a men's shirt from Goodwill into a darling toddler dress. It's quite a bit more ambitious as far as the level of sewing required, but hopefully one of you out there will be inspired. Enjoy!
My mom found these great triangle crayons at Target and thought they'd help me with my grip when I write. As you can see, I found something much more interesting to do with them. While I was building, my good buddy, Caleb, called. He wanted to talk to me! It was great. It was hard to explain my building to Caleb, so here are some pictures for you, buddy. (Sorry it took a few days to post them.) The day these pictures were taken was a great day for Mommy because she got calls from three friends who are moms of my little buddies: Jamey's mommy, Emma Claire's mommy, and Caleb's mommy. We still miss all of our old friends very much, even if we haven't talked to them all on the phone lately. But back to the crayons: I highly recommend them. I don't know if they help with gripping, but they are great for building!
