Our Big Little Boy!

Monday nights are becoming a gem for our family. We are striving to have Family Home Evening. It's been going really well this month.

Tonight brought some milestones though.

First off, man cub wanted to eat on his own!! Such a big boy!



Big boys love their juice boxes!!

Second came the big boy car seat.


Slow down, Bub! This is going way too fast for me!

Third, I think he's decided he's a dog. He watches Sophie and laughs at her when she does this with her toys. I guess it's like dog, like boy! video

Have I?

This song has been going through my mind a lot today. Enjoy.


Have I done any good in the world today?
Have I helped anyone in need?
Have I cheered up the sad and made someone feel glad?
If not, I have failed indeed.
Has anyone’s burden been lighter today
Because I was willing to share?
Have the sick and the weary been helped on their way?
When they needed my help was I there?


Then wake up and do something more
Than dream of your mansion above.
Doing good is a pleasure, a joy beyond measure,
A blessing of duty and love.

There are chances for work all around just now,
Opportunities right in our way.
Do not let them pass by, saying, “Sometime I’ll try,”
But go and do something today.
’Tis noble of man to work and to give;
Love’s labor has merit alone.
Only he who does something helps others to live.
To God each good work will be known.

Then wake up and do something more
Than dream of your mansion above.
Doing good is a pleasure, a joy beyond measure,
A blessing of duty and love.

Belated Birthday

So, I've really meant to post these for a few weeks. Life goes faster than I think it should.

Haden is the light of our lives! He's getting better at walking. He like to say, "Dada." He really enjoys sitting on our legs and being bounced too! Perhaps if I was able to be home more, he'd learn more faster. I have to be grateful for what I have though!! He's an amazing little boy with an amazing zeal for life. He sleeps through the night and has such a mellow personality. He's a true joy in our lives!
