“He tends his flock like a shepherd: He gathers the lambs in his arms and carries them close to his heart;  he gently leads those that have young.” -Isaiah 40:11 About a month ago God led me to that verse in the bible. I was struggling and really needed to hear from God. I was […]

Caleb’s First Art Project

I’m not quite sure why.. but last night I got this idea in my head that it’d be fun to let Caleb finger paint. Of course real finger paints were out of the question since Caleb puts everything right into his mouth. So we made our own finger paint. With rice cereal. It was…interesting, and […]


Today Bobby and I took Caleb swimming for the first time. We were joined by our friends, Mandy and Matthew, along with their daughter, Colette. Mandy’s sister, Tawny, and her husband Dwight were also there along with their almost one year old boy, Wesley. Caleb loved being in the water. Unfortunately it was a little […]

6 months!

Today Caleb is 6 months old! I can’t believe that it’s already been half a year. The time has flown by so quickly. He’s growing and developing at such a rapid, amazing rate. Is it too soon to start planning his first birthday party?

Yesterday I babysat a friend’s daughter, Alyssa, as her childcare provider was away on vacation. I was a little nervous about how the day would go with 2 little ones. However, things were much easier than I’d anticipated. Mostly due to the fact that Alyssa is likely the most easy going 16 month old that […]
