Today at the Christmas service, a song was sung by Andy Pancratz and Karen Pancratz called Labor of Love. It is originally done by Andrew Peterson and Jill Phillips from the Behold the Lamb...

Christmas Eve and Crawling

On Thursday, December 22nd, we left Denver to drive to Kansas so that we could spend Christmas with Greg’s family. We left late in the evening. My thought was that we could leave around...

Feverish 1

Feverish

Adrianna has a fever of 100.4 today. I am pretty sure it is related to her immunizations yesterday, since she got a fever last time too. Poor Adrianna slept fitfully all night. She was...

White Elephant Gift Exchange

Last night we attended a Christmas party at Mark’s. One thing that Mark does well is plan functions and events, and last night was no exception. Lots of good food and plenty of wine....

8 months old

Babyanna turns 8 months old today. I took her to the doctor for her well-baby checkup. The poor little girl had to get 4 shots. She wasn’t too happy. She also cried at the...

On Friday evening I babysat my 5 year old niece, Ebony. She is Adrianna’s only cousin. Ebony was such a joy to watch. She was so helpful and wanted to help me with Adrianna,...

Reason for Crawling Delay? 1

Reason for Crawling Delay?

I have a theory as to why Adrianna hasn’t actually started crawling yet. We know that she is perfectly capable of taking off at any time; I just think that she doesn’t know it....

Conflicted Emotions

In less than a couple months, Greg has the opportunity (through work) to fly out to California for a web design conference. I would really like to go with him. Of course I would...

No more Bah-Humbugging this year

I decided to get ambitious today and put up our Christmas tree while Greg was at work. Last year we didn’t even decorate for Christmas since it was just the two of us and...

A brief look into our day 1

A brief look into our day

Adrianna scooted her way (backwards) underneath one of our dining room chairs. She still hasn’t started crawling. She is SO right on the brink, but I guess I have been saying that for weeks...

First Bump 1

First Bump

Today Adrianna received her first bump on her head. She was hungry and fussy, but her diaper beginning to leak so I went upstairs to change the diaper and her clothing before feeding her...
