Life with Judah

He's teething, so life with Judah this last week has been... interesting. Not much daytime sleep and lots of night time waking. Today he finally got a decent nap and is sooo much happier, but even with ouchy teeth he's such a happy, jolly baby.

So many of my friends are on baby watch these days.... Denise waiting on the results of her little precious embryos, Laurie waiting for little baby Beardsley to make an appearance, Laura C. with only three months to go before baby Lillian arrives, Tabitha, and all the others. Such a wonderful time in our lives as women. Even with all the heartache that it can bring, the gift that God has uniquely given women-- of participating in the giving of life-- is such a precious one. Lord make us faithful stewards of this gift! Give us wisdom and strength, teach us to lean on You for both.

Sofi got to try out for a role in the Rockingham County Ballet Company's performance of The Nutcracker this weekend! She was very excited ahead of time, but somewhat disappointed when it turned out that the audition consisted of "doing the same old stuff I've been doing in Miss Cindy's class...." Mom was glad to know that it was all very easy for her, though. They'll be choosing and assigning based on the girl's ability to follow instruction and not fall apart on stage. Both things I believe she's capable of. We'll find out in two weeks what parts she got! Check back for details.... :)

Sorry I've been MIA in the blogosphere as far as commenting.... It was sweet of you to mention me!

You are right, I should rejoice now that I HAVE two little embryos inside me. It's hard to understand/believe since I can't even feel them, and I pray so hard for them and (yes) even talk to them right now.

That is SO exciting about Sofi trying out for a part in The Nutcracker!!!! Funny about her comment after the audition! I'm sorry about Judah's teething - you'll have to get a pic of those cute teeth when they finally show through. It changes the "baby" smile to no longer look so babyish... I think it's a bittersweet thing. :) Love ya!
