You can see all the pictures here if you would like!

Randomness

Gabe had just gotten out of a shower and I snapped some pics of his cute little self.

Boy! It is already the 18th of May! I can't believe how fast this year is just flying by!!!

Speaking of "boy," my cousin Erika and her hubby, James, found out a couple weeks ago that they are having a boy! I am so excited for the 2 of them to experience this blessing! Can't wait for little Logan to be here later this summer!

I have a couple (or a bunch) of random pictures that I want to share with you.

My HEART is Blessed

I have a friend, who has a little (and by little I mean younger, cause he is actually about 6' 5" tall!) brother who I am so proud of. He and I have never had a friendship, just my friends bro, who goes to the church I used to go to. He has been working (for Apple Cellar, as a delivery guy, which I think might include some very early hours) since he graduated from high school, going to SOU to get his Master's and he loves the Lord! I am just so proud of him for doing what he is doing.

I have another friend who has an older sister. This older sister has 2 girls who go to AWANA where Carson goes. One of them is in his combined Puggles and Cubbies class. Today I was talking with my friend about her sister (& family) and found out that they go to church every Sunday. This news has blessed my heart so much!

God is so good! And we need to remember that every single person has been made in His image, according to Genesis 1:26 & 27. It doesn't matter what they have done or not done. God made them and He loves them. We also need to remember that people watch us and hopefully are blessed by decisions that we have made as I am by the 2 people I mentioned above.

Aloha.

Sandals, Uh-Oh, and Diego

video
4.30.10
We tried out the new (to us, from Earth Friendly Kids) See Kai Run sandals for Gabe.

5.3.10
Gabe said Uh-Oh, or "Ah-ah" last night for the first time. This morning I got a little of it on video. It is at the very end. He opens his mouth very wide, messes with his tongue a little and says it.

These guys are so amazing when they learn things! I was saying amen this morning and Gabe was staring at my mouth, trying to repeat it. Didn't really sound anything like amen, but he was concentrating and trying. :)



Carson has been potty trained (during the day) for almost a year now. We have been working on going poops in the potty since then. Usually he goes in the potty, but last week he wouldn't even try to go in the potty, and went within minutes of me putting on his diaper. Over the weekend, my mom got him this Diego potty seat. Once he saw it he said many wows, and cools. He tried it that day and had success!

We are at my moms today and had this conversation:
C: My tummy hurts. I don't have to go poops.
M: Are you sure? Do you want to try?
C: No. Do we have the Diego potty?
M: No. We don't. Do you want to put a diaper on?

Several hours went by and he said his tummy hurts again. So I asked him if he wanted to go in his diaper.
C: Yes. (So while I was putting it on), he said me, am I going to go poops in my diaper?
M: Where else would you go?
C: In the potty.

SURE! Why not? Since he mentioned it, I was definitely going to take him up on his offer. :)
And he went! YAY! Oh, the joys in potty training!?

I know, I know!

I know spring in Southern Oregon means close to 70* one day and the next day is cloudy, rainy and cold, but I am so ready for a change! I am freezing right now!

Yesterday I went through my closet to actually weed out the shirts that I have had and not worn for the last 2 or 3 years. I am to a point where I actually want to get things cleaned out some and stop saving things to wear one day. If I am preggers it might fit, or smaller it might fit...blah blah blah.

I am really ready for 70* weather. Are you?

Aloha.
