Back to the basics.

The Lord has been graciously re-teaching me some lessons that I thought I had learned some time ago. I was reading I John and I came across chapter 5 verse 21 "Dear children, keep away from anything that might take God's place in your hearts." When I read this I had to stop and evaluate the "things" that I have allowed to take priority over God in my life; I am ashamed to admit that the list was surprising long. I thought that when I was able to quit my job and stay at home I would have unlimited time to spending reading my Bible and other books that would help me grow in my Christian walk; now that it has almost been a full year I have found that I still am still struggling to make time to know my God better! This verse has challenged me to evaluate what I am allowing to take priority over God, confess it as sin, and to give God first place in my life. The second lesson that the Lord is re-teaching me follows the first and that is: when God is the priority in my life I have true joy!

Look at me

It looks like Noah is standing by himself but he is really leaning against the chair. He is growing up fast but not that fast!

Who can resist???

Visiting my grandparents this past week brought back many memories for me; one of those memories has to do with this salon chair. As children we were warned many times not to play on my grandmother's salon chair (she has a small hair salon in her home), but what child can resist a chair that spins around and that can go up and down? I took Noah for his first spin during our visit. He seemed to like it.

Noah's trip to Maine

It did not take long for Noah to warm up to his Grampy Milton; they became fast friends once grampy help Noah walk around. My mom and I went to a near by mall and let Noah have his first try on a kiddy ride. He liked the stearing wheel better then the motion part.

This is a picture of Noah with his great-grandparents.

Noah liked to play with the tablecloth just as much as he liked to eat his supper.

Noah's new toy

We found this ball for Noah yesterday after we got his haircut so we thought that he deserved a little gift after such a rough afternoon.

Noah's first haircut.

Nate and I decided that it was time for Noah to have his first haircut. I know that most parents wait until around their child's first birthday before they cut their little's hair, but Noah never lost any of his original hair like many babies do and it was beginning to look like he had a bad hair piece. So we went to the mall yesterday which was a big mistake since Easter is next week. I could not believe how many people were getting their hair cut! Noah started out ok but after a minute or so he started to cry so I tried to do everything I could to make him smile. Is new cut is not the greatest since he moved around so much but I think that it is better then before (Nate dosen't).

Helping in the kitchen

I was trying to do some cleaning in the kitchen yesterday and I could not find any toys that Noah wanted to play with so I thought that I would see if he would like some bowls and spoons and sure enough he did. He played for over half an hour!
