Jeremiah 29:11

I don't have any pictures today but wanted to let you know that lately some job interviews have become available to me. I'm REALLY excited about a couple of them. I'll keep you updated. Please pray as you feel led.
Jared has just ended another semester of school. He continues to do so well. He's taking summer classes to stay on schedule to graduate May 2011.

Henry's finally teething. He's cut 2 already, but you can't really see them yet. I've heard that this can be a fussy time for babies, and he's proven so. He's such a content baby, so when he's not feeling good I feel so sorry for him. He'll be playing and crawling around, and then those crocodile tears come. Bless his little heart!

In other news, my sweet friend Brian and his wife Roxanne had their baby last Friday. Welcome little Avery Nicole!!! Brian and I worked on the same team at Pfizer. He got hired about a month or so after I did. Like me, he was laid off in January. I'm asking that you be in prayer for his family, too.

We sincerely thank you for all of your prayers during this time of transition. They are felt and much appreciated. God has given me this time with Henry, and I will ALWAYS be grateful for that. I don't know what I would do without my hope in Jesus Christ and the loving friends and family He's placed in our lives. The enemy is so devious that I become shaken about my job situation once in a while and begin getting worried, but I have hope in my Savior that things will work out. Our Sunday school teacher (also Jared's OT prof) has a mantra that I've grown to love... "What God has done in the past is a model and a promise for what He will do in the future, although He is too creative to do the same thing the same way twice." I also need to thank Tiffany and Andrea for their ENDLESS counseling and mentoring during this process. Jared has continued to be the pillar of faith our family needs and has led our family so willingly. Henry's going to learn how to be a great man with Jared's example...and how to save a dollar! (Sorry, boo, you know i had to!!! We love that about you!) With the title of this post and God's word, of course, my heavenly Father knows the plans He has for me...nothing else needs to be said.

Rocket Man!

We cleaned our carpets last weekend, so we moved the furniture out of the living room, giving Henry free reign to roam around. He's scooting around so much these days, and he's become a little rocket man. He rocks back and forth and can't figure out why he's not going anywhere. This video is a great example!

Saturday mornings are pretty lazy around here. Jared and I have agreed that he gets to sleep in 2 weekends of the month. These pictures are a typical Saturday morning for us! Have I mentioned that Henry and Rahab are best friends...if not, they are!

I often pick Jared up from the train station when he gets off work. One day when we got home I put Henry in his jumper. He wasn't in there more than 2 minutes when we found him like this. On this particular day Henry was EXHAUSTED...can you tell?

Well, I guess daddy was too...

It's pretty windy here. When Grammy Judy was visiting in January, she was always putting hats on Henry to protect his little ears. When she went home to WI, she sent this hat. It's a little too big but will be GREAT for this winter. Anyway, Jared put him in it the other day to go for a walk, and I just had to get a picture!

Last, but not least, Henry's so funny when he sleeps now. This is a prime time shot of him with his booty in the air. I love this little Doodle!
