Back to blogging in 2010!
2010 has begun and many things have changed in our home since my last post. I am sure you all are on the edge of your seat waiting to see when and what I will post next. :) Sorry to keep you all in such agony...the truth is I have been busy adjusting to my new mommy life. I am now the proud mother of a handsome 4 month old. It has taken Charles and I a while to figure out what the heck we are doing just to come up with the fact that we don't know what the heck we are doing. I think that we have decided that not knowing what to do is an OK place to be. I haven't found his manual yet:). This leads Charles and I to one conclusion...we must pray and ask God, our Creator, for help. Thankfully He has not left us alone. We have sought God for answers to everything it seems. God has given me in particular more patience than I have ever known. My darling husband can attest to that:) Little man has been such a joy to watch even in this short amount of time that we have had him. I am amazed at how the Lord created such a sweet miracle for us. Little man has grown from 8 lbs 9 oz and 22 inches to an almost 15 lb 24 inch long sweetie. He can now see the world around him and you can tell that he is a great observer of his surroundings (maybe he will be a birder like his daddy!). He smiles socially and giggles randomly and when tickled. His hands are always moving about, and usually they find his mouth rather quickly. He drools and babbles often and sits up with assistance. He loves to stand up with his little legs so straight as if he is proud of himself. He doesn't like laying on his tummy which I believe is the reason he hasn't rolled over yet (I am easily persuaded to pick him up when he turns his lip out and cries). He is learning to sleep well by himself, although that has been a painful process for Charles and I. He wakes in the morning talking to himself with the sweetest little voice. I cannot imagine my life without him now. I cannot wait to see what 2010 has in store for our little family. Just thinking back to this time last year...we just found out we were pregnant and I was feeling nauseated throughout the day...We are very thankful for the changes in 2009. What a faithful and good God we serve!
