one year ago....

i can't believe it's been a whole year....since our lives were changed by Katrina.
remember the post linked below???

Remember This??

i heard this song on the way to work this morning, and glanced in my rearview mirror to see our beautiful blessing that we found out about in the midst of our storm.

God is so good....

Casting Crowns - Praise You In This Storm

I was sure by now
God You would have reached down
And wiped our tears away
Stepped in and saved the day
But once again, I say “Amen”, and it’s still raining

As the thunder rolls
I barely hear You whisper through the rain
“I’m with you”
And as Your mercy falls
I raise my hands and praise the God who gives
And takes away

I’ll praise You in this storm
And I will lift my hands
For You are who You are
No matter where I am
Every tear I’ve cried
You hold in Your hand
You never left my side
And though my heart is torn
I will praise You in this storm

I remember when
I stumbled in the wind
You heard my cry
You raised me up again
My strength is almost gone
How can I carry on
If I can’t find You

As the thunder rolls
I barely hear You whisper through the rain
“I’m with you”
And as Your mercy falls
I raise my hands and praise the God who gives
And takes away


I lift my eyes unto the hills
Where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord
The maker of Heaven and Earth

the fourth month....

since we'll be out of town some next week, i wanted to go on and post jordans 4th month video montage. i just cannot believe it's been almost 5 months since he came into our world. life has changed for the better, and we cannot imagine life without him now. every day is a new adventure, and just when i think i can't love him more, i do! thanks for letting us share a little bit of our "joy" with you.
we sure do miss all our family and friends...but hopefully these little videos help you "see" jordan grow each month.
we love you all!

makin baby food....

mommy made me some good stuff today....
i helped, but mostly just sat in my highchair and watched.
i took some pictures so you could see....
we made peaches, plums, pears, bananas, carrots, and squash! we also have peas and apples but i got a little fussy waiting on mommy so we'll do those another day....

first she chopped up all the goodies....

then she cooked them and made them soft.....

then they went into this really loud thing called a blender, then into the ice cube trays.

i tried some of the acorn squash tonight.....all i gotta say is YUM. much better than gerber. thanks mommy!

ps-mommy is teaching me a little accounting too....get this! we made 30 servings and only spent $11.66 on the fruit and veggies. That comes to 39 cents a serving as compared to 60c to a dollar for the store bought stuff!

little guy's not feeling well.....

for the past 2 nights j's had a rough time. i took him to the doc today and he said teething is the culprit. it affects every little one differently, but for jordan it means fevers and sleepless nights.
we got some perscription teething gel that should help him feel better.
he napped for 5 hrs straight today after getting some relief...and i couldn't bring myself to wake him. could make for another long night for us!!!!
here's a couple pics from today. he made mommy stay home from work again for a little more TLC.
daddy will take over tomorrow on his day off!

teething bites.....

well, we're officially teething. tons of drool, a little fussiness, and everything is going in the mouth!
poor little fella.
luckily, like most things, it's just a little phase. i just hope they come on in soon so that my little man will feel better!

that's the word i'd use to describe my 4 month old.
here are the stats from todays appt.

16 lbs 14 oz
26 in long

he's in 6-9 month, some 12 month clothing now. holy cow!

he got his 2nd round of shots today, has been a bit sleepy and cranky for most of the day. tonight he was running a temp of around 102. totally normal but of course i freak out. strip him down to his diaper and put a cool cloth on his head, frantically look for the tylenol. i took his temp rectally, in his ear, and armpit just to be sure. (not with the same THERMOMETER thank you!!!!) i then run to page the doc on call at his pediatricians office. asah, on the other hand, is very collected and it doesn't phase him too much. he even heads out the door for his mens fellowship in the midst of my freaking out. funny the difference between a mommy and a daddy. ha!

a few pics from this week for your viewing pleasure.

fun in the exersaucer

love my soft stuffed elephant
