Our Week in Photos (Week 22 of 52)

*Checkup – Emily had her 2-week checkup on Tuesday. She has regained her birth weight and then some. She is now 7 pounds 0.5 ounces.

*New Job – Norm started his new job on Wednesday. God never ceases to amaze me. His timing, His provision, His love.

*New Laptop – It arrived yesterday so we are finally going to catch up on our photo uploading and posting. We’ll probably post over the weekend, so we’ll have to leave you hanging with just the one photo below.

*Big Sister – Melody is doing the best that she can. The hardest part is when I have to feed Emily and can’t really help her if she needs it. Otherwise, she still keeps us surprised by how fast she learns things each day. She knows how to count to 10…almost to 20 something, but misses 1 or 2 numbers and it’s not in the right order. She can count to 10 in Chinese. And she knows quite a few songs. Her memory is AMAZING! I wish I had memory like that. So don’t make promises you can’t keep. She’ll remember.

*Small Things – As for the Small Things, let’s just say I’m giving someone else a chance at the prize this month. =p

*Coming Up – I’m very excited about some things that are coming up. My sister is getting the keys to her new house today. Next Friday, one of the very first students I ever had in VBS is graduating from middle school. He was 4 when I met him, and he will be 14 this year! Then, on Saturday a friend is getting married. And summer is almost here!!

  1. Such a cute picture. How wonderful that Norm started a job just as Emily was born. God takes care of us!!

    Prayers that going from one to two little girls continues to flow somewhat smoothly. 🙂

    God bless!

  2. Congratulations on your beautiful new daughter! Emily is adorable, and it sounds like she is doing great! I’m glad Melody is also doing well with the adjustments.
    Praise God that Norm just started his job – what a testimony to God’s timing!

  3. Wow Melody is really looking like a young lady ready to be a big sister now. My belated congrats to you and Norm on Emily!

  4. What a beautiful picture of your little girlies! Thanks for stopping by…..oh, by the by…when my kids were wee like yours I never got a day off either! At my age, I’m afraid I need a day every now and then…especially when you have special needs kids!
    Have a wonderful week!

  5. PRAISE GOD FOR THE JOB!!! Thank you for letting us pray for Norm these months. What a blessing it is to see God’s answer in someone else’s life!

    I can’t believe Emily is two weeks old already! She was just born yesterday! And you’re right, don’t ever make a promise to an elephant memory. My baby, Noah, wanted a TV in his room like big brothers since the time he was two (mostly because they would kick him out and not let him watch videos too). My husband told my then two year old that he could have one when he turned 5. He accepted it and never asked again. The DAY he turned five we had a party and he got gifts. He had a great time. Everyone left and he asked my hubbty point blank…”So where’s my TV?”

    Thank you for stopping by. I think Mark’s hair was one step away from the 70’s fro. I so love it this way!

    Hope you have a great week!
