6 Months....Is it Getting Easier?

Remember, in this post, when we were 2 weeks old? Well, now we're 6 months....and we both just finished eating cereal. Is it getting easier to tell us apart?

Hmmmm. Am I Lincoln.....or Gabe??

I'm gonna stare you down until you figure it out!

Throwback Friday

Somehow I missed posting a few pictures of Lauren in her preschool play at Christmas....

What? This is not me lying on the couch.
With Lincoln.
Snuggled in my arms.
During naptime.
Pleeeeeease. He sleeps in his crib where he's supposed to sleep.
(thanks Maddie for catching me!)

And this is not Gabe catching a snooze in the American Girl bed.
I did not find him on the staircase landing last week, almost asleep, in a bed made for dolls.
That's not how he rolls. Or slumbers.
He, also, sleeps in his bed where he belongs.
What kind of parent do you think I am?

Throwback Friday

Today's Throwback Friday is a special treat. A family photo from the 90's.

If my recollection is correct, and believe me I would neeeeever forget those earrings, I am 16 in this pic. And we are at Olan Mills. Where else?

Chase the Hope

Autism has perplexed me for almost 5 years now....since Lauren's birth. At that time, I began working in our Children's Ministry at church and we had several children with unexplained autism. One day it wasn't there.....and then it was.

It recently hit very close to home when our very dear friends received the news that their son had autism. Autism is a national health crisis. I firmly, firmly believe that environmental factors are involved. Firmly.

What can you do? Spend 3 minutes on this video. (I was bawling 45 seconds in)

And then vote.

Happy 6th month Birthday Lincoln

For this child I prayed, and the Lord granted me what I asked of Him.

Thank you!

Yes, my blog has finally received a much-needed update!

I chose Alexis after running across her site and reading the "Purpose" section on her blog. Literally, in tears, I contacted her to see if she would be willing to give my blog a makeover. She did a phenomenal job!

You are amazing. I can only hope that my daughters, as teenagers, are as committed & intentional as you. You have some incredible talent! Thank you so very much - you rock, girlfriend! ;)
