Wordless Wednesday (or maybe not so wordless)

Well, actually today's word is WOOHOO! Why you might ask? Because Scarlett has taken 2 naps already today. Mind you, they last about 30 minutes... but I don't care, we are making progress. She was awake from 8:30 a.m. until 11:30 p.m. yesterday, ah! Seriously, she did not shut her beautiful blue eyes once, I was watching. So, this morning I was determined to start out on the right foot. Well, with help from Daddy (who is officially a 3rd year now (holla!) and is currently studying from 8:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. everyday for his boards which he will take July 7th) we did it. I have been trying very hard to implement the Baby Wise eat-wake-sleep pattern and this is the first day I can say we are actually implementing the sleep portion. So, I thought I would show you my sweet little napper...

And I have to give a little thanks to Graco for making the most amazing sound machine ever... I think it helps so much. It is the little thing in this picture that I think resembles R2D2 (am I spelling that right?). My picture did not turn out very well, because I wanted you all to see the darling pillow my precious friend Jill made for Scarlett. I will have to take another one some day. Go here to see Jill's amazing work:

I love reading my friends' blogs, and there is something I would like to implement that my friend Aidan does on her blog. She has something she calls 'Mosaic' which is basically a short concise way to say what is/has been going on lately in bullet point form (Lori, if you are reading this...haha, bullet points!!!) Because mommy-hood is so busy and I would like to update (and document for memory's sake) what is going on in our life, I figured this will be a great way to do so. I will call my report, "This&That." So here is the first:


--Scarlett is 10 weeks old now. She is so observant and loves to "talk." She would "talk" all day if she could! She LOVES bath-time. It is so cute to watch her little face light up as soon as I put her in the tub. She just kicks and smiles like there is no tomorrow. She got her 2 month shots last week which was quite traumatic for all 3 of us. She did great though. She sleeps about 6-7 hours through the night before needing to eat. She is just a little angel, except for when she is hungry.

-- Like I said, Mitch is studying for his written boards which you take after your second year. He "finished" up things at school yesterday and is now on a studying warpath. He goes to the library to study which makes me sad, but seriously, he could get nothing done at home because Scarlett and I would beg for his attention. He is amazingly focused and works so hard...goodness, I love that man! He is going to be traveling to Uganda in late July on a dental mission trip with the organization I work for ( They will be training 6 Ugandan believers to be community dentists. Very cool!

-- This may seem random, but our little next door neighbor Ms. Jacqueline informed us a couple weeks ago that she is in the final stages of bone cancer. It broke our hearts because we had no idea. So, we go check on her several times a day because she lives alone and has no family. She loves the Lord though so I love to hear her talk about is so sweet. Just yesterday she was telling Mitch that she hopes when she gets to heaven that she can wash Jesus' feet. Precious.

-- I know there is so much more to say, but my little napper is now awake,
so good-bye for now!

Here are some recent pictures of our little doll baby...
