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 day...dance class, mall, etc and she hardly had any accidents (except at NeNe and PaPa's yesterday...at 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 SJ...so I better get hopping! Have a blessed Sunday!
