My cute person - becky*

He's finally here and he's just delightful! We are enjoying our extended hospital stay with all sorts or royal treatment, friends and family coming by and of course, delicious food :)

Eli has been very easy so far and all I want to do is just look at his chubby little face all day long! I forgot how amazing it is to have a baby. After everyone left last night I just stared at him and cried, such a little miracle.


He's Here!!!--Nicole

Yep, it' a he! Eli Matthew arrived last night around 11 p.m. He weighed in at 8lbs 13oz. Everyone is well. More pics to come but these ones obviously show that its impossible for Matt and Becky to make a baby that isn't the spitten image of Matt!

Has anyone happened to notice the baby-ticker in the right column of this blog?! It says 0 days. Thats right 0 days left to go until we have a new little one! Apparently my child has missed the eviction newsflash! Haha. Still cooken' with no signs of desiring to join the world anytime soon.

Oh well, you can try to rush these things but as mom so eloquently put it "this child is not interested in being blasted out by any dr." bahahahaha. We are now waiting for him/her to make its grand entry whenever it decides its a good day.

Hopefully sooner then later, my house is getting a little too clean.....

Happy Birthday Georgia!!!--Nicole

My Georgia Lynn turned one! Wow, what a year. I was looking back and don't think I've actually posted once just about Georgia--what a terrible mom blogger I am! But we made it, 2 under 2 for an entire year and now we bravely face two toddlers!

Yes, Georgie has blossomed into quite the toddler. She walked at 11 months and hasn't stopped. She's into things, has opinions, but is still very generous with her smiles. That is definitely her best
feature: her smile! She's definitely more chill than her sister (like that's hard) but is no pushover and certainly has a strong personality all her own. She's another little busy bee, it's humorous to see us putting up all the things we just moved back into place as Lyla exits and Georgia enters the "pull everything out of it's own place" phase of life. It's exciting to see her love for sister: she wants to be and do everything Lyla does. She also has a special smile for her daddy and generally wants to be with him when he's in the room.

We love your Georgia, thanks for all the smiles, and thanks for finally sleeping through the night. (We hit night #7...yipee!!!)

Psalm 90-MOM

God has been recently working in my heart in the area of my job at the hospital. As you girls know I have had some very difficult days. Not only are my days long and very physically fatiguing but I have been cussed, at spit on , bit, sat in on two depositions, the list goes on. I have continued to dwell on negative and have thought about running away ! Time for a change I have been thinking 25 years of med/surg nursing and it may be time for a change but God first has had to shine the light of HIs word on my heart! He has use daddy to show me I have been grumbling and complaining about my job that had been a great means of grace to our family for manny years with it's pay and flexibility and reminded me how much I have enjoyed being a nurse in the past. I used to say " This is my night out when I had pre-schoolers and was home schooling" Along with daddy and humbling myself before my care group and getting wise and specific scriptures to fight this little trial my whole heart attitude has and is being changed about my job. It is still "hard" but Jesus never said it would be easy in fact He said we would suffer. Not only was my Savior spit on, cursed at, but he was beaten and died a bloody death for my sins and who am I to think my life should always be without pain or suffering. The last few weeks at work have been a joy for me not easy like I had been desiring but peaceful because my heart has been changed and I am prepared with God's word to do battle for the day 1 Cor 10:13 "No temptation has over taken you that is not common to man god is faithful and He will not let you be tempted beyond your ability but with the temptation He will provide a way of escape that you might be able to endure it." and Psalm 91:14 "Satisfy us in the morning with your steadfast love , that we may rejoice and be glad all our days"( not just my days at home but at the hospital) vs17"Let the favor of the Lord our God be upon us and establish the work of our hands upon us: yes establish the work of our hands!" So I thought I would share His work in my life with you to not only bring Him glory but to encourage each of you in the work He has for each of you in you seasons of life. He is so good and faithful not to leave us in our sin and misery and His word is alive and active! Great is His faithfulness!
