This Morning Naomi...

Well, as I'm sure most all of you know by know, Mom just had a baby, and so we are not going to church this morning (that's why all this happened). Well, anyways, we made buttermilk pancakes and sausage this morning. And, of course, we had syrup. Well, for those of you who have little ones at your house, you know that syrup and two-year-olds do not go together without a very sticky mess. But she really wanted that syrup, so we decided that to minimize the mess that was sure to come, we put it in a very small bowl on her plate, so the syrup would not spill all over. Everything was fine for almost the whole breakfast. Almost. I just happened to glance at 2-year-old Naomi sitting in her high chair... She was holding the bowl up to her face and drinking the syrup!

Everyone started laughing. (though we really shouldn't have, because that made her do it again) :)

Then I had to clean her up. It took a little bit.

You're laughing, or at least smiling, aren't you?

Funny Addition: Naomi woke up from her nap this afternoon, and was complaining that the back of her head hurt. Now, Naomi doesn't usually complain about something unless it truly hurts. So, we looked at the back of her head. Her hair was crunchy at the bottom. There was syrup in her hair (that we knew nothing about this morning). So we washed her hair.

Now you're smiling even more, aren't you?

Our Newest Blessing: Hannah Elaine!

Naomi (almost 2) holding Hannah

Now, to start out, I have to admit she is the cutest baby I have ever seen. Now, about her...where should I start? How about a few weeks ago. Mom was really pregnant, and it was really hard for her. She couldn't stand up without feeling lightheaded, she was so exhausted, and just extremely sore. She is always late with her babies, and Mom did not want to wait longer than she had to, so she scheduled an induction for last Thursday, the day after her due date. However, God had other things in mind. While I was gone on Wednesday afternoon, her water broke while she was taking a nap (at 1:45). I came home 15 minutes later to find my 10 and 11 year old sisters at the door hurriedly telling me Mom's water had broken. Dad came home quickly, and they went to the hospital. It was a very quick and easy labor- Praise the Lord! Hannah Elaine was born at 6:47 on Wednesday, November 18. She was 8 lbs. 7 oz. (no wonder Mom was not feeling good - the one before was 6 lbs. 12 oz.!) Dad had recently got a new camera, and we have literally thousands of pictures of Hannah, and that number is ever-increasing... :)
