I am still confident of this:
I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.
Wait for the Lord;
be strong and take heart
and wait for the Lord
Psalm 27: 13-14

Couple pictures and "announcement"

This was from this morning after Evan had "breakfast". He was covered in spit up...but LOVING being a big boy in his bumbo chair!! What GREAT inventions!!!! Thank you again to Evan's great auntie Mayreen!!
Evan LOVES this twisty toy!! Now that he has figured out he can grab and HOLD ON TO toys he is all over this one!!! It's chewy and he constantly has it in his mouth! It's hilarious because he has yet to figure out hand/arm control so the toy is often smacking in to his face!
Brett LOVES this onesie! Good call Auntie Kyra and Uncle Scott!! I can see that as he outgrows this one I will be having to buy the next size up!! Oh boy!!
Well, I just loved these pictures so I thought while Evan finishes up his morning sleep I'd take some time to upload.
I'm going to attempt for the first time to take my dogs with me and Evan on our morning walk. I haven't done that on my own yet as my dogs can sometimes become "distracted"...so I'm praying there will be no other dogs, or cats on our walk! hee hee hee. I'm sure it will be fine. OR it will be a short walk. I feel so bad for my dogs though because they watch through the front window as Evan and I head out. I don't want them to start getting resentful, so time to get them sorted out WITH me and Evan on our walks. PLUS I have to take advantage of what's left of the nice weather. My dogs are boxers...short hair dogs. They do not deal well with cold weather so they are usually house bound for the most part during the winter. They love their fleece jackets, but won't wear the booties to protect their paws.
OH, as for the "announcement" part of my title to this blog. We are having Evan dedicated this Sunday at our church (Elim Tabernacle on 8th Street) at the 9:30am service. It is really nerve-wracking for me to take him in to a large crowd of people. For our own peace of minds we are making Evan wear a pair of his old scratch-mitties as the first thing people want to do is touch his hands and cheeks. I'm SUPER paranoid about this and don't want to constantly be saying "oh, please don't touch his hands". I'll also be carrying his wipes and hand sanitizer with me.
It's tough because we have to be SOOOOOOOOOOOOO careful...and even though Evan looks completely healthy (and IS), he still has a compromised immune system and the trick is KEEPING him healthy! So I have to protect him any way I can. We chose to dedicate him this month before cold/flu season really hits full force because at that point we will not be going to large crowed areas. But we are looking forward to his dedication!
Anyhow...the boss has awoken, so time to get going!
