SUMMER FUN...AND RANDOM THOUGHTS

BROTHERS...
I HAD TO POST THIS PICTURE FOR RYANE...
WHEN I CAME OUT WITH THESE SUNGLASSES ON,
THE WHOLE FAMILY SAID, "THOSE ARE JAZZY GLASSES:)"




JOJO WAS THRILLED THAT HE COULD FLOAT ON HIS BACK.
CAN YOU SEE HIM SMILING?...


WHEN WILL THIS SWEET GIRL GET SOME FRONT TEETH?... PRECIOUS

For the first time Greg and I watched the video he took of Samuel at the hospital. We maybe have 1 minute of video. I had to watch it over and over and over again. I so regret not taking more video, why didn't we? In the video it was just maybe 10 minutes after he was born. I look totally calm and normal, wierd, can you say shock?

To see him being stroked on the head, face, chest and hand by my midwife and Greg and to see no response from Samuel.... oh it makes my heart hurt. Greg commented that he just couldn't get over how quiet it was. Greg says he just has that same vivid picture in His mind of Samuel. I don't, I really can't remember in my mind what he really looked like, kind of, but not completely. Oh that makes me sad, as much as I was trying to sear that memory into my mind... I think my mind was just out the window that day. Our Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep photographer did an excellent job editing the pictures to make his skin not as noticably dark. But I love my color pictures too, because to me they look more like him. Does that make sense? The color pictures really look like him.

So here are my random thought for the week:

Sunday I almost choked on my communion wine because I was crying so hard. Yep, I am an ugly crier:)

I got so much less done than I was hoping to while the kids were at VBS this morning. I did get a run in though:)

Most of the baby bunnies are gone except for one the neighbor mom is going to get for her daughter. Caleb called and left a message for the mom yesterday, "Miss Tommy, Savannah's package is ready for you to come pick up anytime." Her package??? He is so funny:)

The other day JOJO wanted some powder on his rear, (I know this is probably too much information but this is how he asked, "Mom, I want some fertilizer on my crack." Really, I am serious, fertilizer??? and crack??? This kid cracks us all up.

One step at a time, one day at a time, laughter, tears, and all.

Oh Sara,
To imagine you guys spending time with Samuel via video, my heart just aches thinking about it. I bet he seemed so small and perfect. I'm glad you thought to tape some -

I'm praying for you friend, can't wait to see you and hug you! Love you guys!!
