Jesus (loves me, this) I know, for the Bible (tells me) so.
Sydney likes singing. I usually sing Jesus loves me to her at night when she goes to sleep. She always askes for "Jesus" song. Up until just recently, she would "sing" Jesus loves me, but she only remembered "YESSSS, Jesus" (loves me), which she would sing over and over. Suddenly in the car the other day, she hears a song on the radio that had Jesus in the chorus and she starts singing away. I was so glad I had the camera.

pretty close to a ba-gillion (ba-gillion - n. a cardinal number greater than a ka-gillion, but less than ka-zillion). I think this sleeper has 13 snaps, which is just ridiculous when you are trying to snap up the sleeper at 3 am after changing a diaper, but before the baby has been fed and is therefore starving and therefore hungry and therefore crying...loudly. Thankfully, Sydney (and Wayne) sleeps right through it all.

Sydney rode in the stroller while Elijah went sling style.
I love the sling. I am hoping Elijah will too. His first attempt in it did not go well, but I think he was hungry that time. He did excellent this ride. He slept the whole time!
I was worried we were going to have a colicy baby. I even spent an hour of his awake and crying time looking up colic info online. Nearly every website tried to encourage the mommies..."dont worry, colic doesnt last forever. it should go away by the 4th or 6th month at the longest." Am I missing something here? I fail to see the positive side of this, unless your baby is already 3 and 30/31 months old. 4 months is a long time to go without sleep! That seems like it would hardly encourage any one at 3am after 8 hours of crying, dont worry, only 3 more months to go! :)
here it is, 'the bump' on the day before Elijah came. i always felt like i was huge, but i figured i probably didn't look as big as i felt, (one of those 'not as bad as it seems' kind of things). yet everywhere i went people were constantly telling me how uncomfortable i looked.
looking at this picture, i have to agree. i look 'painfully large.'

while there is a lot of crying going on (and i can admit, i am one of the offenders), we are making it. however, i thought i would give a salute to tears and sleep, or rather the lack there of.
just a little, slightly pathetic, fun. tons of pictures of crying babies...i am surrounded by crying, or so it feels. "The Chase" is by Marcel Currin, a very talented christian musician with an amazing sense of humor.

Sydney is too funny. She is always ready to talk to "JIY-jah" and point out his eyes, ears, nose and mouth. She loves to oh and awe over him. "Mwwaahhh, cupe (cute)."

but, give it a week, and you can likely be able to fit into (if not pre-pregnancy pants) early pregnancy pants.
yes, ladies and gentlemen (do any guys read this? i doubt it) i not only got into, but was able to zip up my prepregnancy jeans! ta-dah! of course, i lost all feeling in my legs when i sat down and the waistline cut off all circulation to my legs, but that is not the point. the jeans were on! :)
it is a great feeling to be very suddenly able to fit into clothes that you have not been able to wear in forever. and on that note, i have got to lose weight. i topped out at a number i hope to never see again on the scale. yes, i know i was pregnant and that you gain weight, but i could not believe how i was and am. i hope to lose 20 pounds by christmas...i hope that by posting on here my efforts every now and then that i can actually accomplish and stick to my weight loss efforts. we'll see what happens.
in the meanwhile...enjoy pictures and updates of our family.
