He crawled!

THe for real kind, on two knees!!! I am so very thankful to my Father in Heaven for wonderful miracles and answered prayers!

Bryan and I have been doing Noah's physical therapy with him. We've been working on getting him to crawl. It's been slow going. He has recently started using his arms to pull himself across the floor while he's sitting up. Tonight he started something new. He starts out sitting and starts to get into the crawl position, only one leg is still sideways and the other he is using the bottom of his foot rather than his knee. I don't know if I'm making a good visual or not, but it's wonderful. The farther he goes, the more his sideways leg starts to get behind him, where it should be when he crawls. This is a huge deal! I'm so excited! Such a miracle from where he was at birth!!!!

What passes for a snow day in Arkansas.

Here are some pics of our snow day today. It's worse than it was yesterday. This morning it took Bryan 45 minutes to drive what is usually 10 minutes and all on the highway. He said he was driving about 30 miles an hour and still sliding a bit on the ice.

Our front porch. A bit of snow, lots of ice.
The flower bed and sidewalk. gain, bit of snow, lot of ice.
Half of our front yard. Where the sun had been shining it's already cleared up, especially across the street. You can't really see it, but the road is still kinda icy.

Why did I do that?

I showed Mady that we can watch Jonas Brothers videos on youtube. Please someone tell me what I was thinking. Now that's all she wants to do. I have to find my camera so I can take a video of her singing along to Burnin' Up. I fear that Noah's first sentence will be *I'm hot, you're cold.* She is so funny!

That took care of itself.

I shoudl have known that if I just waited a bit, it would all be taken care of. Yesterday's post had to do with my bio father. Today it's not a worry anymore.

A melancholy day

It's Saturday. Every other Saturday is not my favorite day. Bryan has to go back to work that night and I miss him. I was having an ok day and then I got an e-mail. Now I'm conflicted. I know, I'm being crytpic, but it's a long, drawn out, emotional saga. I hate feeling so confused. I think I know what I want, but part of me doesn't. Another part of me feels guilty for wanting what I want. And I don't know who to talk to about any of it.

It's been a crazy week here. WE had a nasty computer virus and ended up having to wipe the hard drive to get rid of it. Noah has another ear infection, with another ruptured ear drum. Both of the girls are puking today. I'm ready for a vacation.
