Joe discovered this little nest in our window flower basket and I love it! The little mama bird is very protective, and every time I water the flowers is in a little tree about 10 feet away incessantly squawking. Such a perfect little nest and cute little was really fun to show it to Salem!

Guess what, guys?

Hey guys, guess what?
Yep, if you haven't heard, I'm going to be a BIG BROTHER!
My little brother or sister is coming October 2010, Lord willing!

I've been really excited about how the days have been getting longer recently, and can't believe it's almost time for Daylight Savings Time and we'll get a whole extra hour of daylight every day! Thank you, Lord! I love how signs of spring are everywhere, and every time we go outside we hear the birds' songs (and my little song bird joins right in)! And I love how the change of seasons is a constantly cycling reminder of God's goodness, mercy, and faithfulness. I'm thankful that he remains unchanged through every season of our life, and we can trust him completely with our future.

Summer and winter and springtime and harvest,
Sun, moon and stars in their courses above
Join with all nature in manifold witness
To Thy great Faithfulnesss, mercy and love.

Day 24

Day 24 (2/24/10)

Well, truthfully, as much as I've enjoyed the challenge, I'm glad it's almost over! The last few days, I've been feeling completely uninspired to take pictures, just between a busy schedule and the soggy, foggy weather we've been having. I'm so thankful today was beautiful, though, and I realize when I watch the weather for the rest of the country, I shouldn't be complaining in the first place! Anyway, this afternoon, when Salem got up from his nap we had a really sweet time hanging out on the couch while he drank his sippee cup of milk. So since we were having so much fun, I thought I'd sneak out the camera and see if I could capture his sweet little mood. We even made a game of me "hiding" while I took a picture and then popping up my head afterwards and saying "peekaboo"! Here are a few more shots. I'm soooo thankful for my boy, and I'm thankful that I stuck with the photo challenge so far :)

Day 23

Day 23...posted a day late, again.... (2/23/10)
The spoon didn't work so well, so....
I think we are officially entering the "do it myself" stage...Oh boy!

Day 21

Day 21 (2/21/10)
Here is our WALKING BOY! He's been taking a few steps every now and then for the last 3 or 4 weeks, but I feel like today is the day he really took off! He was walking all over the place at church this morning... not only walking to us, but just to check out things on his own that he was interested in. It's crazy!!! Here's an outtake which is extremely blurry, but I love the motion and excitement in it :)

Day 20

Day 20 (2/20/10)
This can't be good.....check out our little TV bug!

Day 19

Day 19 (2/19/10)
Here is Salem trying to get to the camera, and tackling me (that's why the picture is cut off)! It was so good to see him back to his happy and playful self today.

Day 18

Day 18 (2/18/10)
Here's Salem eyeing my cup of chai on the floor (in the cup)! I had completely forgotten I had left it there until I saw him staring at it. We played inside all day when he wasn't napping- I think he napped a total of just over 5 hours today!!! Poor guy, he's had an allergic reaction these last few days, and we're still trying to figure out to what. So, to treat the hives and sneezing he's constantly been on's been really hard to see him feeling bad and not himself. Anyway, I like this photo, because of the fact that you can actually see his neck, a new feature for him!

Day 17

Day 17 (2/17/10)
Whew...three blog posts in one day! That is definitely a record for me...feels good to be caught up  with the challenge! I let Joe take this one for me while were having some fun over at the park. Salem must have played with the wood chips for at least 15 minutes! 

Day 16

Day 16 (2/16/10)
I couldn't decide which photo I like more....I just love this little face sooooo much!
