” Though the fig tree should not blossom, nor fruit be on the vines, the produce of the olive fail and the fields yield no food, the flock be cut off from the fold and there be no herd in the stalls, yet I will rejoice in the Lord; I will take joy in the God of my salvation.” (Habakkuk 3:17-18, ESV)


Matthew Dedication

We dressed Matthew for the first time in a cute jean overall outfit that was given to us by our dear friends Alejandra and Raul. This was a special day for us. We stood before our church, Jenn and I along with other families. We were on stage with the lights on us. It was definitely a new feeling to be on the stage. It’s like walking off the couch and into the television set. I know it’s just our stage at our home Church. But somehow it felt like I was on television with all those lights and camera on us. The stage has monitors that you can look down onto and see yourself. I looked up at the large projection screens at one point to see myself looking up at the screens! The pastor speaks into a wireless microphone, his voice is filling the entire room. Jenn and I stood their to confirm our dedication to raising Matthew to be a man of God. We vowed to do our best to teach him about the God of the Bible and guide him in the wise ways of God. Church on the Hill also vowed to help out; teaching and guiding Matthew to know and love God. Thank you God, and all the faithfull believers at Church on the Hill


Pee and Poop outside the diaper

I picked Matthew up to discover that he had pee’d enough to wet the diaper and make his blanket and bassinet a little wet. So I brought him over to the bed to change his diaper. Everything was going fine until I noticed a new look on Matthew’s face. As I look at him, he looks back at me, but I notice a stream of pee flying past his head and completely onto the other side of the bed! I called for Jenn to come and check out the long distance wet spot he made. She came with a towel to wipe it up and as she was wiping it up, he began to pee on her arm. Jenn screamed as her arm was being washed with Matthew’s pee. Simultaneously, he started pooping all over the changing pad. I thought it would be wise to block the stream of pee with the old diaper, but this just made a puddle of poop and pee underneath Matthew! He didn’t seem to be bothered by any of this. And most of the time this was happening, Jenn and I were laughing histerically. I wish I had a picture to show you, but I don’t. Our hands were full. So here’s a photo of Matthew and I.
