Why We Call Our Blog the Miracle of More

The miracle is a beautiful image of Ephesians 3:20--more than I can ask or imagine. Every day is a miracle. Every moment is a miracle. Specifically for our family, the miracle of more is our family growing in ways I would never have imagined when we first committed to adoption 8 years ago. But, the greatest miracle is the change in ME!

Today and Yesterday

Okay, I can't find my digital camera...any ideas where it might be. The card is upstairs in the computer, but the camera is...well I don't know. So, I'll tell you what happened today, and then we'll have a little fun. Look at the pictures below and Guess Who!

But, first, Ellie is trying to crawl, and even stand up while holding onto the couch, all things she should NOT do. We have to keep a constant eye on her. Well, today, her daddy said, "Come here." She said, "Dad-dy, the doctor said I can't crawl" So, she will do what the doctor says when it works for her.

Prayers please, only 5 more days until we visit the doctor!!!! Please pray that her body is healing and we can leave the cast behind.

And, for those who may wonder how human I really am. (I hope I don't diappoint you too much.) But, today someone had really upset me, so I told Stad, exactly like this, "What really aggravated the p-i-s-s out of me...." and I finished my story.

JT came in the kitchen and said, "Mom, I know what you spelled."

I said, "What?"

Okay, she's gifted. She's in kindergaraten. She told me. Be more careful Mom.

Now, I hope you enjoy guessing who, as much I as enjoyed looking at old photo files today.

Does this look familiar?

Has this child changed a little?

Do you know this kid?

Guess Who!

Okay the first one has me stumped. Ellie or Bobbie? JT, Caleb and is the last one Katy T?
Hope all is well.

Ellie, JT, Caleb, and Katibug!

Spelling words out doesn't work at our house anymore either when Kati is around. Eli is beginning to "spell." Riding down the road, he'll say, "Mama, what does e-j-k-t-n spell?" My reply, "Nothing, Eli." It is a great game; he thinks so anyway! :)

I'm telling you I believe Olivia and JT are twins -- Olivia would have said exactly the same thing! She finished one set of sight words she needed to learn (and she was the first in her class to do this) and they gave her another 220to learn. She now knows 40 of the new ones and wants to start on the next batch.......
