Let me start out with my second scripture verse of the month for the Siesta Scripture Memory Team. My new verse is......
"Those who know your name trust in you, for you, Lord, have never forsaken those who seek you." Psalm 9:10 NIV
What a promise! It's so comforting to know that the Lord has never forsaken those who seek Him. I pray that my family and I will do our part and never grow weary of seeking Him.
Over the last few weeks, Jeremy and I have been letting Ella Claire "practice" feeding herself with a spoon. She has mastered, hold spoon, insert food in mouth. But, the hard part is actually getting food onto her spoon. :) This is going to take a bit more practice.
"Practicing" with oatmeal and strawberries
concentrating so hard
oops! the wrong end of the spoon in the oatmeal....
...makes for a very messy breakfast
Ready to try again...
Good thing I am always close by to wipe down and control the mess. :)
A few months ago, I mentioned, how I wanted to start taking family pictures on Sundays when we are all dressed up. Well, we did this a few times but have really slacked off. We didn't even get a family picture on the Sunday before Christmas. So, I really wanted to get one this Sunday. I like doing it outside because the lighting is perfect, but because of the cold weather, we weren't able to get one. So, after church last night, even though we had all changed into more casual clothes for the Sunday night service (except for J, he wore the same thing); I begged Jeremy, (and Ella Claire, she just didn't understand) to please cooperate long enough for a quick family picture.
It was just the three of us at home, so we compromised and I asked Jeremy to stand in front of the camera so I could center the picture and make sure we wouldn't all be a fuzzy blur (I'm still very green with my new camera).
Being such a good sport!
It took a little longer than he anticipated and he was quickly getting bored!
So then he got a little silly.....
and then, he just couldn't take any more so, he closed those beautiful blue eyes.
And, I knew, if I wanted a picture, it was now or never. Ella Claire is half asleep and I still am not 100% satisfied with the lighting. So, next week we will try again! We did have fun though! :)
I am working on a tutorial for making a blog header, so if you are interested, check back in the next few days. I'm hoping to have it posted tomorrow or the next day. :) Hope you have a wonderful Monday!
