We did get some school accomplished today and puttered around the house. As mentioned above, Jared left for a few days, so it will be interesting to be stuck at home so we can fully recover before Sunday. Abishai's Baby Dedication (and others) Celebration is on Sunday and all are welcome to attend. It's at Indian Creek Christian Church at 3:30 pm in the main auditorium. It's we, the parents, and the community at large, promise to raise the child(ren) in a loving, Christian environment. We were asked to fill out some homework with questions about how our walk with God is and what are some phrases we would like to train Abishai up in. You also get to see pictures and there are refreshments afterwards. And pray that there are no airplane delays because the men are getting back around noon on Sunday. It will be a close one!
|Yes, he got in the trash can himself.|
|So the other two put him the orange bucket again.|
|Mean kitty in a cage.|
|Get the mean kitty!|
|The yummy treat Benaiah brought back for Keturah. She graciously shared it with Justin.|
|We STILL use that rolling bag sometimes.|
|This illustrates Benaiah's (and some of ours too) love for food. I think I'll have him recreate this moment now that he's almost full grown.|
|Goofball Benaiah. It must be a Johnson thing to want to sit in tubs and buckets.|
|Jared with hair! Another moment I'd like to try and create. Sweet!|
|Looking a bit like Abishai here.|
|Aww, cute kid! I didn't realize just how light his hair was back then. And yes, Abishai does look like him!|
Message for Daddy
Message for Benaiah
Message for Grandpa Johnson
When I picked Abishai up from his nap, he said, "Mama," and then immediately said, "Dada." He usually sees Daddy as I carry him into our room. He's so used to Daddy being here. Again, I'm so grateful for that, despite the circumstances of why Jared's been home since March. Then, the kids kept laughing and laughing over the one for Benaiah. I guess Abishai's been watching too many YouTube videos or something. Lastly, it was the first time I could clearly hear Abishai say "Grandpa" in his video. Time to add even more words to his vocabulary!
