Whew! What We've Been Doing...

It has been an exhausting week, it hasn't been a bad week, I have just been draggin'! There have been rough little bumps, like trying to figure out why Adia is WIDE AWAKE and ready for the day at 3:30 am.  Bless Jon, he got up with her around 4:20 am when we figured out nothing was going to put her back to sleep.  However, with the bumps, we have had lots of fun too.

I am going to try and do a giant catch-up post on our last few weeks. 

Up Close and Personal with the Horses:
Look at Adia's delight...

Zoo Day!
We met Heidi, Honor and Eden at the zoo.
In this picture, Adia has a firm grasp of Eden's hair.

First Time at the Kiddie Pool
My Mom and I took the girls to see what they thought of the kiddie pool...
$6, 30 minutes and a screaming fit later, we left and decided maybe we should stick to a backyard pool (in the shade) this Summer. I am destined to stay pasty white all-year. :)

Cousins Come for a Visit
Ang and girls came over for a fun afternoon.  Jada and Adia really had a better time than is reflected in this picture. ;)

Transitioning to High Chairs, Baby Sign and Homemade Baby Food
It was also time to transition to the high chairs! It is so much cleaner to feed them!

I have been working on a few signs with the girls ("more" and "all-done").  Jada is successfully use the "more" sign!

While talking with my sister-in-law this past weekend, I added up what I estimated the cost of the girls' formula and baby food for a day.  Oh my. Meika has a son a few months older than the girls and she told me how easy it is to make your own baby food.  So, you now see homemade sweet potatoes on those girls' lips.

Turning into Puzzlers...

Yes, that is right.  I have never completed a puzzle bigger than 100 pieces.  Last night, Jon suggested we do a puzzle.  Once the girls are down, we are kind of limited on activities as we need to stay in the house. I laughed and felt like an old person and told Jon that I was not a puzzler.  However, we decided to tackle one, 500 pieces no less, and I must admit, it is kind of addicting!

While we puzzled, we listened to an INCREDIBLE sermon. 

Listen to it today while you check blogs, make dinner or pay the bills.

Table of Nations by Voddie Baucham

Our American culture has been so misinformed on this subject. We both learned a lot and agreed we have never heard such a clear, concise, biblical perspective on God's Creation of one race.

Way to go on making baby food!! I love doing it. As I type, I have a crock pot of chicken I'm going to turn into baby food. My first time trying chicken. I heard all you need to do is add a veggie to it. I hope it turns out.

Amy, thanks a million for the link to that sermon! It was amazing and so timely...the whole subject of "inter-racial" (and yes, I despise that term too) marriage came up in David's Bible study yesterday, and I believe that this sermon is the perfect thing for me to pass along. I've been pondering my response, asking for grace, and trying not to jump up on my soap-box too quickly, and this was just so affirming!

Thanks again, and have a wonderful weekend.

Looks like you have been super busy Amy!! Enjoy these summer days. It is my favorite time of year, especially with young children. :) Have you ever read Voddie Baucham's "Family Driven Faith?" Looking forward to seeing you in August! XXXOOO

Cute picture, Amy! My girls loved seeing it! Jada and Adia's expressions crack me up. It was so good to be with you!
