Growth. She is growing in her toddlerhood. So many firsts for her it’s truly thrilling to experience. On this day, Aves went to her first dance lesson, and picked the first fruits from our first garden. I love getting to know her and be beside her while she experiences the firsts.

So we went to a Halloween festival today and you wouldn’t believe how confused people were. Is that kid wearing a football player costume? That’s also a pumpkin? Sigh.

Takin’ Care of Business.

 

Don’t worry, y’all. Eli’s just rockin’ a helmet to fix his severely flat head. He’s like Stewie from Family Guy. Thanking God that he’s wearing it at the beginning of fall and football season. 

You can’t see it but there is a Bronco sticker on the left. Now we just need a #18 and we’ll be all set!

When Eli was born, I noticed that his head would flop to his left all the time and that he hardly ever would look to his right. Turns out there’s a medical name for that called torticollis. We’ve taken him to physical therapy to train him to look to his right and to really stretch those muscles so there’s no preference. But, when he slept, he still flopped his head to the left and that’s what caused the severe head flattening on one side. 

He is doing much better looking to both sides and he is adjusting to the helmet. It hurts our hearts a little that he has to wear it, but I’ve been reassured that babies adjust to it pretty quickly. I had a mom tell me that her son really missed his helmet when he was done with treatments, so that made me feel better. 

Elias, sorry that you’ve had some bumps in the road since you’ve been born. But I want you to know that we have an awesome Friend who takes care of us. We’ll tell you all about His provision one day when you are older!

You will never be completely at home again, because part of your heart always will be elsewhere. That is the price you pay for the richness of loving and knowing people in more than one place.

Vanity or Righteous Splendor

"Gray hair is a crown of splendor, it is attained by a righteous life. "

Proverbs 16:31

I’m turning into a silver lady way before I’m a golden girl. And I don’t know whether to hit the bottle or go natural. I’d like to think my youthful spirit will outshine my glossy grays. Feeling doubtful and vanity is winning.
