A New Day - Hooray!

Okay, so the pizza wasn’t great. It was edible but we were happy we only bought one!

The boys slept through the night for the most part – Calvin woke up at 5:15 and again around probably 6 but we were able to get him to fall back asleep. Patrick got up around 7:45 with Daddy and Calvin and Mommy got up at about 8. We had breakfast and the boys have been playing ever since while we took turns showering. They are pretty content today – so far. Calvin has attempted several fits but for the most part we have been able to head them off with a firm, “Nyet, Calvin!” We found this to be somewhat successful last night at bedtime, so decided to try it today and so far we are a fan.

Calvin has been practicing walking a lot! He seems very motivated - perhaps watching his brother?! He seems to wake up each morning with the mantra, "today I will walk, today I will walk!" He pushed the stroller around for awhile which was adorable. Patrick is really getting the hang of his sippy cup and loves to drink water. Neither of the boys seem to like juice much (we've tried it a couple times mixed with water).

Our coordinator will be stopping by this afternoon and then we hope to do some shopping and maybe go out to dinner with the boys (after their naps, of course!). An outing is much needed.

Thanks for all your prayers and encouraging words. You have no idea how much you have ministered to us. Everyone is feeling better today and we are very grateful! We just keep taking it one day at a time and spend lots of time praying! Can’t wait to see you all.

Sounds like they are adjusting. Counsel as small as he was, tested us a lot there and even more since getting home. It will be fine when you get back to normal. Ask your rep to take you to the Ram shopping store, there is food, baskin robbins, Dunkin Donants and a good grocery store.
