Gifts from God

Behold, children are a gift of the LORD, The fruit of the womb is a reward. Psalm 127:3 NASB

Here is the other picture that Allan helped me work on. Allan is a good teacher, I remembered how to most of what he taught me, and learned a few new things on my own. Yes, he is a wonderful gift too!

Thumbelina Megan

When I was given these flowers after Megan was born, I could not help but think that they needed “Thumbelina” on it.  Allan spent lots of time teaching me how to make the picture.  It was good entertainment while on bed rest last week!

“Thumbelina, Thumbelina tiny little thing
Thumbelina dance, Thumbelina sing
Thumbelina what’s the difference if you’re very small?
When your heart is full of love you’re nine feet tall

Though you’re no bigger than my toe
Than my toe, than my toe
Sweet Thumbelina keep that glow
And you’ll grow and you’ll grow and you’ll grow.”

Lyrics to Thumbelina, sung by Danny Kaye in the movie Hans Christian Andrerson

Playing outside

With the weather in the 70’s yesterday, we wanted to be outside as much as possible.  The girls pulled out some blankets for Megan and me to rest on.   We watched them ride their bikes and play on the swings. The fresh air was  a little much for Megan, and she happily slept most of the time.

We also watched the girls and Adrian make a sign for the front yard.

Welcome Megan Grace!

My God is awesome!  The last two weeks, Allan has had business trips a few hours away.  Both weeks he got home on Wednesday night late.  Since Megan was due the middle of October, these were his last trips for awhile.

On Wednesday night, Allan got home late. On Thursday morning, Megan Grace decided she wanted to meet her family.  Since we had an appointment at the midwife’s, we went in. We were sent to the hospital and then waited.  And waited.  And waited.  The midwife had a few tricks that we tried and we waited some more.  Finally around 6:00, Megan decided that maybe she would come. After a few more midwife tricks (including a game of tug of war) and more waiting, Megan arrived!

Even though she is considered a little early, all tests show that she is a fully developed smart little girl. She was born at 9:21p.m. and is 18.5 inches long and weighs 7 pounds.
