bubbles

Last week Finley learned a new skill...blowing bubbles! Minus the excessive drool, we think it's pretty funny. This is one of the first things that I've noticed her mimicing (besides smiling of course). When we make the sound first, she'll start doing it. I know this is something all babies eventually learn, but I'm still amazed she's learning to repeat sounds and use her mouth! We watched Finley playing in her exersaucer last night and marveled at how much she's learned and grown in only 3 1/2 months!

koti hu's story

If you find yourself with some free time on your hands you should check this video out. Our family friend Koti Hu (who was recently paralyzed in a car accident) shares his testimony and our brother Jeff provides some insightful words about crisis and grieving. I'm not personally close to Koti but his music has always touched me and I continue to be encouraged through his story....

finley and logan sitting in a tree...

Today we had a play date with my friend Lindsey and her baby boy Logan. Finley and Logan are only two days apart so we have lots of fun discussing what life is like with a three month old. The babies were pretty oblivious of each other except for when they briefly held hands. We had a yummy lunch and since it was such a beautiful day we were able to walk to starbucks! Such a fun day-thanks Lindsey!

a barnyard wedding

This weekend our sister Sandra married Jonathan at the Pickering Barn. It was quite a family affair. Our brother (who we call PJ-Pastor Jeff) married them and all the brothers and sisters participated as bridesmaids or groomsman. Their daughter Maya was the flower girl (she was also ours) and she walked down the isle hidden in her mama's puffy dress. This is the third family wedding in 16 months and we keep expecting things to go a little smoother. But this wedding was full of as much chaos as ours! But that's what makes it fun... Sandra wore cowboy boots with her wedding dress, we dined on BBQ (which was REALLY good) and learned how to four square dance from a professional. It was such a blast. And our sweet baby was perfectly behaved all night. She slept in Mimi's lap during the ceremony and woke up full of smiles and laughter. She was laughing so loud during the toasts I had to excuse myself. You must check out all her smiles on our album page!
