In Quarantine!

Everyone is sick! All seven of us have colds. Stuffy and drippy noses, scratchy and sore throats, sneezing, coughs... I can't think of a time when all of us were sick at the same time. This, too, shall pass!

Happy Birthday to Ian!

My baby is 1! It really does not seem possible. I know he is mine and I am probably biased, but he is the most precious baby in the world! He is quick to smile, quick to laugh, quick to give big open-mouth slobbery kisses, and quick to melt my heart. I am so in love with this little blessing!
I know I haven't updated in a while, so here is the one year update.
He crawls. He says, "mama," "dada," "bye-bye," and he signs "more" and " all done." He laughs at his sister and brothers often. I am weaning him off his bottle, which makes me very sad in some ways. He is completely on table food. He LOVES green beans and marshmallows! He pulls himself up to stand, and may take one or two steps while holding onto the table, but he isn't close to walking yet. He can stand on his own for a few seconds. He gets into everything and puts everything in his mouth! He is learning to climb. (Yikes!) He loves whole milk with a little bit of Ovaltine mixed in. He loves music and cannot sit still when the music begins!
He is my little love! I really can't explain how much I love my sweet Ian. It only barely puts into perspective how much God loves me. I cannot even fathom God's love for me. I think He gave me Roger and my children to give me a glimpse of His love for me.
Happy Birthday, my sweet Ian! You are precious in His sight!
