Naptime Update!

I've got to make this quick because Denver is taking a nap and I may not have very long:)  I have been meaning to post for along time but everytime I sit down I get sidetracked...I'm a little ADD.  Anyways life has been great, Denver is doing so awesome.  Everyday he learns something new, whether it's a new word or new dance moves...thanks to me, I've got the dance moves in the family (just kidding).  He has learned how to pray so now one of his favorite things to do before we eat or during worship is put his hands together and say "Amen".  He is talking so much now it is a little crazy.  We had his 18 month check up a couple of weeks ago and the doctor said he is doing very well.  He did say he thinks he is going to be petite but who knows he might decide to grow one of these days. 
We have had the opportunity to meet with several other families that have children from Ethiopia and that was a blessing for us.  Luckily we have a wonderful Ethiopian restaurant in town called "Queen of Sheba" where families get together.  It is fabulous and the owner Mimi is so sweet.  The food is really good, although it did take me a couple of times to get used to it, but now I'm hooked.  If you live in the OKC area you should try it out.
Denver has had several play dates with some of my friends kids and some new friends.  It is so good for us to get out and around other kids, and for mama to get around other adults.  This summer has been filled with fun, friends and swimming...oh I almost forgot and 100+ degree weather.    
I do want to update on my sister in law's dad who had a major heart surgery a couple of weeks ago.  He made it through the surgery great and is at home now but please continue praying for him.  He has just gone through a massive life change and isn't able to do near as much as before. 
Also don't forget about the people in the Horn of Africa, they are still experiencing drought and famine.  So many have died and many others are suffering.  If you would like to help with this you can donate at the link below.

It was so fun!

He got away while I was trying to dry him off after swimming.
 God bless you all!!!

  1. Definitely keep the nude runaway photo close at hand for when he's a teenager!
