24 Weeks

I know this post is a week late, but it's here.

We had a busy and super fun time with the Swedin's in town last weekend for Easter... more on that later :)

On Thursday last week (24 weeks) I had my monthly appointment with Dr. Peters. It went great. I've gained appropriate weight for myself, and baby is healthy. Baby's heart rate is hanging in the 130s for now... Which Dr said is PERFECT! for where we're at in development! PRAISE GOD. I audio-recorded it but haven't figured out how to upload it here yet... Baby is just over a foot long, (head to toe now) weighing in around a pound. KB might gain about 6 ounces a week for a while... and hardly move that drastically in length. I guess it is time that little one fills out a bit :)

LOVE from a happy (and constantly tired) mama!

ps. Finley suggested names: for a girl "Pepotle" or "Chipotle" or Leela; for a boy: "Tinkerbell"

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!

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…
