"He shall feed his flock like a shepherd: he shall gather the lambs with his arm,
and carry them close to his heart, and shall gently lead those that are with young." Isaiah 40:11

She was so CUTE at supper-time that I had to take some pictures...

Her little feet were just going - lots of twirling and thumping on the chair. 
Rachel was SO happy today.  I got so many giggles out of her.  A faveorite moment for me was taking her in to the kids room (where they were suppossed to be having an after lunch rest) and letting each of them 'bite' Rachel's side and thighs to get her to laugh. The kids just roared with laughter to do this.  I think her thighs are definetely getting more flesh in them - it will be very interesting to weigh her this next Friday.  These past few days have been really good for her, and so that means we do better too! And all this sunshine we are getting is good, so good for our hearts....       

We missed our normal Monday "Sabbath" routine today.  It's usually Dave's day off from work and we usually give each other some time on our own, and then do something as a family.  But Dave is in classes all week.  And so it is really great timing for us that Dave's mom is coming out tomorrow afternoon!! I have lots (probably too many) little projects that I would love to get done now that I have the energy for it.  My mom is also coming a few days later with a few other extended family members.  I love that they will both be here for her real birthday in 4 days at the Flames House.

I am so excited that you get to have family here for her birthday. I know all about wanting to get projects done and hope that you are able to accomplish what you want.
She is so cute, and I agree the best sounds in the world are kids laughing together.
Hugs to you
