Teaching and Learning

This sweet girl of ours is learning so much so quickly - now interacting and cooing back at us with all different voices - sometimes a high pitched squeal, other times soft and soothing.  She is learning to use her hands and arms.  She will be two months old on Sunday.

She is also teaching me so much - to be more patient, to value the moments of time I have, and to keep life in perspective.    Her birth has also helped to strengthen my faith in a loving God that cares so much for us, provides for us, and has trusted me, our family and friends to care for and love her.  What an awesome responsibility and a gift.  I am so thankful.

Wishing you a beautiful weekend. We are having a Thanksgiving meal tomorrow with family arriving to share in the meal and then to see our oldest son, Thomas, playing the role of Jekyll  in the musical, Jekyll and Hyde.  I will be back here Monday for the Handmade Holiday post.


  1. Happy Thanksgiving! Have a blessed time with your family. Now that your sweet babe is two months old, you can look forward to getting some sleep soon (hopefully!).

  2. So much to be thankful for. AND you have the wisdom to recognize and embrace it.

    Happy Thanksgiving...
