In the news today...

Steven Joseph is ONE MONTH OLD! How did that happen? I feel like he was just born yesterday, but like we've known him forever! He's really starting to wake up these days, he looks around all wide-eyed, and gets a little fussy in the evenings. So much for my non-crying, sleep all day and night baby! Nah, he really is very good...we are blessed.

Ellie is POTTY TRAINING! She's been in underwear since Tuesday (besides naps and nighttime) and has done rather well. We were out and about every class, mall, etc and she hardly had any accidents (except at NeNe and PaPa's least there was a washing machine there!).

Mary Clare's TWO BOTTOM TEETH ARE FALLING OUT! She was apparently playing tug-of-war with her blanket in her mouth and the teeth are now VERY loose! She's extremely excited about the Tooth Fairy coming soon...but not so excited to pull them out just yet.

I'm GOING ON RETREAT! Next weekend I'm planning to attend a silent retreat with Steven Joseph. I'm so excited! I already feel like (from today's Gospel) John, who "saw Jesus coming toward him and said, 'Here is the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world!'" Actually more like I'm finally coming back towards HIM, because I know it will be a beautiful weekend drawing close to Christ and back to prayer.

Well, today we've got mass, a baptism, and hopefully a visit with Steven's sister so she can meet I better get hopping! Have a blessed Sunday!

Wow! A month old already! Where did that time go? It seems like you just had him!

I think it is so cool how soon the new baby is a part of our every thought. We just celebrated our one year of knowing about our little Cowboy. What a shock he was and yet was a joy he is. I can't even believe I ever would have wanted life without him in it. In fact I have a hard time remembering what it was like with just eight children.

So many milestones all at the same time!

I hope you enjoy your retreat and that you come back refreshed and renewed.

How blessed, Blair, that you're able to make the retreat next weekend. Enjoy! What an awesome time that will be for renewal and refreshment--just what a new mama-of-3 needs! Blessings to you!
