I Left With A Baby Moose

Internet dysfunction and a little intruder virus edged into our house for a bit over a week.

On May 18th I left you with the shortest blog post ever.

"Today a Little Moose danced."

Sorry about that.  It's really Sarah and Ivan's story, but I get to share it.

I think you guys remember Sarah.

"Ice Ice Baby" 

Ivan having to work, I got to go with Sarah to her OB appointment.  There they took an ultrasound.  Being only eight weeks, the baby looked more like a little peanut.  Sarah looked at the ultrasound picture and said, "No, it looks like a baby moose."  

That is how Baby Moose was nicknamed.

On May 18th Sarah and Ivan went to her Obstetrician.  They couldn't hear the heartbeat.  Obviously, that was a bit scary (A LOT scary).  They sent her for an immediate ultrasound.

There the Baby Moose dance.  It did flips in the ultrasound kicked his/her Mommy.

(Yes, she can feel some of the baby's acrobatics this early.  I was the same way.)

Introducing Ivan and Sarah's Little Moose.

Notice his/her feet in both pictures....already full of energy at only 2 inches long at 12 weeks.


This is the dancing...or soccer playing (as Ivan says) Little Moose.


Life is good here.  We are all getting well and getting back into the swing of things.  Thomas was off today, so (of course) this....

Though the pictures weren't the best quality (and I didn't move fast enough to get a picture of Thomas spinning the other kids), I just love the laughter.  I love that Timothy is learning how fun Daddy is.  I love the silliness and joy.  What a blessed life, not always of ease or comfort, but of love and of joy.  (Truthfully, I don't believe following God is about being

We still have many appointments coming up with Timothy (actually Jael too), about two bazillion dentist appointments to fit in this summer, and lots of learning and great things that I can't WAIT to share with you.  

May your night be blessed with a tad bit of silliness and a ton of God's love!

"Great is the Lord and most worthy of praise;
    his greatness no one can fathom.
One generation commends your works to another;
    they tell of your mighty acts.
They speak of the glorious splendor of your majesty—
    and I will meditate on your wonderful works.[b]
They tell of the power of your awesome works—
    and I will proclaim your great deeds.
They celebrate your abundant goodness
    and joyfully sing of your righteousness." Psalm 145:3-7

Prayer Requests
1.    Continued prayers for Tom and Elizabeth (blessing and protection).
2.  Prayers for our grandchild (in utero) and mommy as the pregnancy progresses.  Sarah has to be so careful with the severity of her allergy to wheat (seizures) and she also has to gain a lot of weight (she lost and couldn't gain before her Celiac diagnoses and was only beginning to gain before her pregnancy).  She's doing great, but could always use the prayers.
3. For our little man as he transitions.  Specifically that he sees us as different (attachment) and has some stranger fear (showing he sees us as his security) and his sleep. It's easy to look at little ones newly coming home as "friendly".  That may be a bit of it, but often they have no concept of family and view everyone as caregivers initially.
4. For direction as we move forward with so many changes and future changes.
5.  That we can get into a good co-op (there's a waiting list with the one we want) with home school for next year.  We have one lovely one two of the children are blessed to be able to go to, but we are looking for a place for some of the higher learning classes.

In the joy of following our Heavenly Father, we sometimes choose to proceed with a whisper, a verse, or a downright matter how we follow Him, the momentum that follows is like nothing we've ever experienced before.

Join the is a beautiful place to be. It's not always easy, but then the best things never are.
