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!!

A Little Update

Norm is starting his new job on Wednesday. It is still out in San Francisco. He will still be taking BART out like before. The only difference is that his new workplace is located right next to the station that he gets off of. Instead of a hour commute, it will only be about 35-40 minutes. That’s a big difference. One that I like. Before when he had to work late, there would be no way for him to arrive home to eat dinner together. Anyhow, they sent us a little outfit for Emily with the company logo on it. That was really nice.

Pray that everything goes well for him. The position is a little different from what he’s been doing, but seems to be a good fit.

My infection has gone away, and Emily has been giving us a good amount of sleep. Melody loves her to pieces, even ignoring us sometimes to just say hi to her baby sister. She also loves to give her kisses. She’s pretty gentle with her, but wants her to “open eyes” and play. =p I’m sad that I won’t be able to take Melody to storytime for awhile as we get adjusted to being a family of 4. It’s her favorite thing to do.

Pray for the 3 of us to be able to survive while Norm is at work. haha My dad and Norm’s parents will be coming by to help out.

Until we get our new laptop, updates on our blog will be less frequent than usual. If you need something to read in the meantime, visit our review blog: Recycle. Reuse. Reduce. Review.
