A Picture a Day: March 8-15

One of my dearest friends just had her first baby and I
was able to slip away for couple hours to go visit the new
little family. Isn't he the sweetest little thing?!? I am so in
love with Johann and so happy for my friend and her husband.
They are already amazing parents and have been blessed with
such a beautiful son. Congratulations Renee and Guillermo!

Jude LOVES Silas' remote control car.
He acts like it belongs to him.
I don't love the whining and fighting over the car, but what
I do love is watching how Jude manipulates the remote.
I'm constantly amazed at how he adapts and, seemingly
without effort, makes things work for him without his thumb.
He's such a bright and handy little pun intended.
(Okay, okay, it was totally intended )

Things are getting awfully muddy around here.

The whole family headed to the barn for chores tonight.
It was sooooo nice out!

Gracie Jo staying out of the mud...

...and Jude getting right into it.

The yard is so muddy the kids can hardly
bike in it, but the feed alley in the barn is
perfect for zipping around in.

Hard at work.

Jude always likes sneaking in a little snuggle
with Peter on the 'nap couch' after breakfast.

A little science experiment on sound waves today.

Gracie loves figuring out how things work.

Jude just loved taking the sound tubes and
using them as spy cameras :)

The kids were already outside playing at 8:30 this morning.
By 3:30 they were running around in t-shirts and Gracie
asked if she could wear her shorts because she was 'soooo hot!!'.
Can it really only be the middle of March?

After a night of long contractions, and feeling very
uncomfortable the next day, I found out at my regular midwives
appointment that the baby had spun around and is lying 'sunny side
up'. Doing this a few times a day (along with lots of time on my hands
and knees reading books with the kids, scrubbing the tub and shower,
and just talking with whoever will hang out with me) hoping to get
the baby back into the right position. I hear posterior
births are not a tonne of fun. So spin, baby, spin!!

This unexpectedly warm weather has us all enjoying as
much time as possible outside. It feels so good to be out in
the fresh air and watching the kids boot around out there
all day long. Lots of muddy laundry but it's a small price to
pay for the fun we've been having around here.

During this season of Lent, as we prepare ourselves for celebrating
the death and resurrection of our Saviour, I can't help but watch
the world around us slowly waking up from its' winter slumber and
be filled with a deep excitement and hope for all the new life this
next season holds for us.

For if, by the trespass of the one man,
death reigned through that one man,
how much more will those who receive
God’s abundant provision of grace
and of the gift of righteousness
reign in life
through the one man, Jesus Christ!
~Romans 5:17~

Be blessed!
