21 Weeks. Officially OVER halfway there.

40 weeks seems like it is going to come way too soon. We are already over halfway to having a baby?! Woah, Nelly... SLOW DOWN.
Isn't this dress the cutest!? Motherhood Maternity has some pretty great pieces (Thanks Sarah!)!

So, I had mentioned to some of you that Tim and I had pretty much picked our baby names. One top girl name, one top boy name. Well, this week, we re-assessed, and took a fresh look at our list of all the names we like. Then we did a top five for both boys and girls. Man! This is tough work. We're totally in limbo over the initial names we thought we were going to stick with. It will be so fun to see what we end up deciding. It seems like such a tough decision. having to choose for our kid, the name that they are STUCK with for the rest of their lives (unless they change it when they're legal, I guess). YIKES! I don't want that responsibility!

The funny thing is, I've dreamed up my most favorite names for "my kids someday" throughout my entire life. Don't all girls? Well, Now that I have 300 different lists to go by, I also have to remember that Tim is now in the picture. He gets a vote, too ;)

NO, we're not telling any of the names. Go ask someone else.

Amy, it looks like you are getting "rounder." Especially on photo #1. Looking forward to seeing you and maybe even feeling baby move!
Suzy, I AM getting rounder. Pretty much every night when we're brushing our teeth, Tim says something like, "WOW, now you REALLY are looking pregnant!"

We're really looking forward to your visit, too! Can't wait to hopefully have you feel baby move... at least see the bump in person!

Happy Birthday, baby boy! | Titus is one

Last year, just after midnight on the morning of Mother's day, this little tyke was born to us! He was a mere 7 pound, 10 ounce baby with fuzzy hair, puffy eyes, and just a perfectly strong boy. He has elfin charm paired with tender kisses. The strawberry blonde fuzz continues to grow up and out, a lighter shade today. We most often find him wanting (whining) to be held, or seeking mischief. He already wants to do what C, J, and A are into... and it causes him many tumbles and tears when he can't keep up or isn't allowed to participate.

We are celebrating this mini man today, on his first birthday! Happy Birthday Titus Andrew!

Happy New Year 2018! | Family Life, Health, and Commitments.

New Year, New Energy
The sun stays up a few moments more every day now. The cold, hard and dark of late Autumn and into winter is always a challenge for me. It's like they're calling out to me: "you're tired," "you're weary" and they howl threats to take away my joy. As I see the days growing longer again, I get a rejuvenation as I get to see the turn of the calendar, too. The howls seem farther behind now. They're not creeping around my doors anymore. Winter is in a frosty, forward thrust here in Minnesota, and as I watch the sun rise up over the trees, witness the special still and clear mornings of a hoar frost, or see a bright halo around the sun... these each show me it is still cold. But, my spirits are brighter.

Ordering my priorities. Saying No, gives me more Yes time.   When we finished our ministry serving as Missionaries with Oak Hills Center for Indian Ministries after August, our commitments were able to level out to a seasonable p…
