Our little Cod-Man

Cody has continued to be a huge blessing to me and Tim everyday. We're so thankful that he has been healthy, and seems to be developing well. He actually has his two-month well-check doctor's visit with Dr. Jen on Thursday. I'm excited to see how much he's grown (in numbers)!

Here are some updates on the guy:
  • He smiles all the time, especially when you're smiling at him.
  • He likes to sleep in his pack-n-play (because that's his only option, haha) in our bedroom
  • He does a great job having some time on his belly everyday. Although, it sometimes isn't his favorite. 
  • He comes to work with me when I go (M, T, W, F) and we have Thursdays home together or we run errands :) He's good at being in the car & stores
  • Sometimes in the car on the way to/from work he gets fussy and just screams. This is SO hard for me... but I am getting better at dealing with it. It seems like when he gets mad, he's like REALLY mad. :( poor guy. But, I've only had to pull over twice I think. I definitely don't blame him: it's a 45 minute commute that even I don't like. 
  • He takes a bottle of breast milk about once a day, but sometimes we don't give one to him. He loves that special time with his dad, and the big meal being so easy for him! Other than that, I nurse between every 2-4 hours during the day, and maybe once (or not at all) at night.
  • He sleeps pretty much through the night now... (we all love this) so when he does wake up, it is rarely before 5:30am
  • We love to play with him! He's into singing, flying, talking gibberish (oooh, aaaah, coooo, goooo, bah!) laying on his back and just smiling around, and I think his favorite are shadow puppets on the wall. 
  • He's fast outgrowing size 1 diapers... but the 2s are huge on him!
  • He wears mostly 0-3 month clothes, some NB and like two outfits that are 3 month. 
  • Work is going well, but he's overly loved by Fin & Sel. The girls are obsessed with him. The poor kid is being torn apart (literally) and being shoved a Nuk all the time. Or, he's being monitored from just about 6 inches away at all times ;) It's cute, but they sure keep me on my toes.

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!

Alopecia | Be a light in the Dark, 2 Corinthians 4

The other day in reading during my quiet time, I was revisiting 2 Corinthians. I was thinking, Tim and I have spent many an hour thinking a lot, about a lot. There are so many ugly and awful things going on across the globe, and across our front door. Our mission field is in Northern MN with Native Americans. In this ministry, we have stumbled through some thick, difficult situations. I am certain you can all attest to difficult times being just that: difficult. The Lord doesn't bring us into circumstances just to drag us along, seeing us become battered and bruised, but it IS His priority to bring glory to His name. We are His chosen ones, and our privilege is to sing Hallelujah to His name!

Anyway, I was thinking that we have faced difficulties. One thing that I wanted to share with you today is about my health.

In 2014, I was diagnosed with an auto-immune disorder called Alopecia. This was saddening and drove me and Tim crazy for three years. One day, I found a bald spot on my …

Homeschool Plans 2017-2018, First Grade and Pre-K Boys | Homeschooling with Truth, Beauty, Goodness

I would like to share with you our plans for our homeschool this year. Codeman is in First grade, while Jesse is an official Pre-K dude. Anna is a wannabee brother and underfoot helper and Titus. He's three months old. Whooofta. I'd just like to repeat that again. Whooooooooofta.

I have read many books, blogs, and journals on the topic of education. Home education, and to be even more specific, sources regarding Classical Education and Charlotte Mason. I truly enjoy these topics and the sources. I am intrigued, and so I continue reading and have now found myself following and chatting with several homeschool moms online in addition to my local and Colorado friends who homeschool. Tim and I were both homeschooled, although my window of homeschooling was only 4 years, I glean much from my mom and Tim's mom. As some podcasts I've listened to refer to us, we are second-generation homeschoolers :) Haha! Well, it helps give me perspective on quality literature and publisher…
