emery has (a videotaped followup research project) therapy at 10 (i'm groaning as i type it) which we are determined to smile all the way through...
and this afternoon...oh this afternoon....we are headed to visit a sweet friend who just brought her baby girl home from china 1 week ago (born only 1 month before emery!!). i couldn't be more thrilled! we saw them at church last night and emery and isabelle spent and hour running around together. i spent that hour chocking back tears to see them bopping around as if they were old friends. pics to come!
and tonight? dinner and drinks with the girls :)
i love today already...
a day that feels like the old me
or maybe the old me, new again
speaking of old things made new, we buzzed the long haired locks that had become quite unruly around here.
i'll be the first to say that i LOVE little boys with fun, wild hair...but when the size of your child's hair doubles the circumference of his head? it might be time for a snip.
can you tell how much he loves his new do??? so adorable!
i might just kiss off those sweet sweetie cheeks!!
all grown up and handsome!!
wait, did you grow 4 years in the past 10 minuets? eek, boy...you are getting so big!!
and one of my girl because...well, because i can't resist :)
blurry? yes. girl hasn't stopped moving in the past 48 hours.
she's a flash of fun and wonderful :)
been focusing on this today:
"God can do anything, you know...far more than you could ever imagine or guess or request in your wildest dreams! He does it not by pushing us around, but by working within us... His Spirit deeply and gently within us." (eph 3:20 - the message)
...and praying over friends who are anxiously hoping to meet their sweet babies tonight!!! the shared list will be released tonight from China (it has all of the special needs children who are newly added and paper ready). it's the night that an email literally changes your life :)
join me in praying for wisdom for parents who have been longing to finally see the face of the one they adore.
