Individuals from the Start!

Every since Isaac was a tiny baby, he has had an extreme love for music. His interest in rhythm, music, and dancing amazes me everyday. It just continues to develop as he grows! Last night, Jamie got out his guitar and was playing for Isaac! He was so delighted. He has never seen daddy play the guitar before. Isaac loved sitting on his daddy's lap and helping him strum!

I just think it is so cool to watch Isaac's personality and strengths develop at such an early age! You can see God's hand on his life as he begins to develop into what God has for him! Tell me about your kids! What have you seen as strengths or interests developing early in their lives?

Isaac in His New Wagon

Jamie's mom got Isaac this really cool wagon for Christmas! It has seats that can fold up with seatbelts and cupholders or can fold flat into the bottom of the wagon! Talk about cush! Since when do wagons have cupholders??????? LOL!

Sixty-Four Degrees in January!!!!!!!!!!!!??????????

Whoo Hoo! It was sooooooooooooooooo fabulously warm today! Weather in Indiana has a reputation for very quick drastic changes, but this is crazy!!!!!!! It was sooooooooooo nice outside today! Since I am not at all a winter weather person, I was so happy! Isaac and I went to the park today! He was very excited to be outside and was going down the slide all by himself! My baby is growing up! Then when he got up from his nap, he was once again begging to go out! So we went in the backyard and he got to swing! It is so fun to watch how excited he gets to be outside, he was laughing so much today!

Mommy Sanity!

Well, a sigh a relief is breathed as all of the present have been unwrapped and put away, the decorations have been taken down until next winter, and the kids are slowly settling back into a normal schedule.................but then again, it's kind of sad.............all of that excitement and tradition and now what???????????? Here in Indiana, winter is quite gloomy and blah!!!! What do you do as a mommy or just as a working gal to fight away the winter doldrums??? Share your brilliant ideas with me!
