family update

-jaxons new tummy medicine seems to be working. he hasnt had a gas attack in the past few nights.
you'd think this would mean he'd sleep better. hmmmm. he's still up a lot during the night. just likes to hang out with his parents i suppose. asah has taken one feeding the past couple nights and given me some rest. i'm liking the bottle thing....however, i usually have to get up and pump anyway so it (sort of) defeats the purpose.

-i quit my job! well, one of them. it was a very very difficult decision to make. I love what I do at the Restoration House. I've been blessed to be there almost 3 years now doing the books and just serving in whatever capacity. In June I was promoted to House Director. I can bring my kids with me to work. Seems ideal, but I was just missing time at home and through much prayer Asah and I decided it would be best to be home more. This is a huge step of faith as we are letting go of some income that was getting us through each please pray that God will provide. I am still keeping a couple bookkeeping gigs from home..and still at the gym one shift per week. .this will just free me up sooooooo much to be with my boys and help Asah out more in ministry. Exciting!

-i'm going to a pastors wives retreat next weekend. i'm looking forward to retreating. jaxon will come with me though....he still needs to eat (pretty much all the time :) asah and Jordan will have some good time together next weekend.

that's about all for now. you may wonder why i'm awake at 5am. it's because i just put jaxon back down for the 3rd or 4th time and he's in there grunting away and fighting sleep so i figured i might as well post while waiting for him to settle :)
all is quiet now so it's time for another hour or two(!) of sleep.

Edited to add a family photo...our first as a family of four! taken today at the pumpkin patch-

Great family pic!!
I know you are going to love being home with your boys, even though you had a great job...there's nothing like being home. I'm only working one day a week and that one day I have to leave always wrenches my heart. Congrats on your decision and I'm looking forward to hearing your God stories in how He provided!!

What a great family pic! I always loved the pumpkin patch! Jaxon is a doll and I was glad I was finally able to see him in person today. I am sure leaving your job was hard....but you have a very important job right now with those boys. God will provide and He will bless you guys for putting your family 1st.
