6 Month Check-up

Joshua had his six month check-up/shots today. He weighs 20 pounds and is 28 and 3/4 in. long. He is a solid little guy! :) That is almost 4 pounds heavier and 1 and 3/4 in. bigger than Kinley at 6 months. :) It will be fun to see them both as they grow. He did great with his shots, just cried a little and made his sad face which we don't see very often. And he has exema like Kinley did/does too. :( We have some special cream now, so hopefully that will help. I'm so thankful for my little 20 pounder!

As I look back on 2009, I am so thankful for all that God has done in us and for us. First of all, for a clearer revelation of the Cross and all that Jesus did for us there . . . "It is finished!" Praise God! He is truely an awesome God! I am also so thankful for our little Joshua given to us in June. What a blessing and miracle he is. I thank God for giving us such an easy going baby. His sweet smiles and giggles make my days so joyful! I can't believe he is already 6 months old! And of course for my Kinley boy who is my buddy in so many ways. I really enjoy spending time with him and hearing all of his discoveries and thoughts. I pray that he will have a revelation of Jesus in his young heart! He loves to go to Wal-Mart and the grocery store with me and he is really good about riding in the cart, even though his long legs barely fit in it anymore. :) He is ready to go somewhere most days, it doesn't really matter where as long as we're together. I thank God for his sweet spirit as well. And my Christopher, what can I say about thee . . . I am so thankful for him in my life, my partner in all things. I am so glad that I can relax and just enjoy being his wife and spending time with him. That I don't have to strive to please him, we can just "be". . . the same as my relationship with Jesus (I'm learning), no striving, just being with Him and turning my eyes and heart upon Him. I am blessed so much and I haven't even mentioned my family beyond my boys who I am so blessed by-especially you, my sister, Sally! My church family, the new addition being done, the list could go on . . .
When I look forward to 2010 I pray that my faith would remain steadfast in Christ, the author and finisher . . . the rest will fall in line.
