What we have been doing…
Life has been pretty normal around here lately. Here are a few glimpses of what we have been doing lately.
Our little guy has started singing. It is just too cute for his momma to handle! I tried unsuccessfully to load a video of his newest song of choice, “Baby Jesus” also known as “Jesus Loves Me.” Since Christmas, he has only called Jesus, “Baby Jesus.” AJ is also becoming quite a copycat…he repeats nearly everything Maddie says and does…the good, the bad, and the ugly 🙂
This pic of AJ cracks me up. He tried so hard to hold his mask up like Maddie, and this was the best he could do!
Our girlie is getting so grown up. Maddie insists on helping me make all the meals and snacks now, which I love. She loves to do my hair, her hair, and now also Daddy’s hair. She is continuing to love pre-school and is doing very well with our little projects. Recently she made a lion’s mask to represent the first half of March (In like a lion…) and she’s learning the Easter story by making a Resurrection Tree (More on our Easter celebrations later…).
I have been busy completing our profile for the adoption. We recently had our home visit, which went well, and now our social worker is typing up our home study. Once that’s done, our profile can start being shown to potential birth families and we can start applying for loans and grants. Now that our profile is done, I feel like a free woman 🙂
Ben had a busy few weeks, especially the last week and a half. While our dear friends, and Sr. Pastor and his wife, traveled to Ethiopia to bring home their new little guy, Ben held down the fort, led a prayer meeting, taught a new members class, and preached two Sunday’s in a row. I think just that small glimpse of the life of a Sr. Pastor gave him a fresh gratitude for the role he typically plays as Pastoral Intern 🙂 I have to say though, as his wife, I think he did a wonderful job. You can listen to his recent sermon’s here under Resources.
