Growing Babies!

Our family continues to stand in amazement at God's loving Grace. William is growing so fast and doing so well. At his doctor's appointment the first of October (2 month checkup) he was 11 lbs and 7 oz. He was measuring in the 21st%tile. This was up from the 8th%tile the month before. He is eating peaches, apples, pears, and rice cereal now and loving it. He eats it for breakfast and dinner right now.

Amber continues to do very well in high school. We are so very proud of her. She joined the Fellowship of Christian Athletes Club and hopefully will join the Latin club soon. She really is enjoying that class a lot. She stays busy with her school work and church. I believe she would live at church if we would let her. She attended her first high school dance the first of October. Although it's so sad to see her so grown up, she's just so beautiful. I couldn't be more proud of her. She is getting ready to attend a youth retreat with the church this weekend. She looks forward to this every year.

I am going to begin doing a little sub work in my former school to earn a little extra cash for the holidays. I only plan on doing 1 or 2 days a week. We have a dear friend who will be coming to our home to keep William. I know she'll love on him while I'm gone. My first day is the 19th. If it is too hard, I won't do any more. I'm very blessed that I don't have to work and can do it at my leisure.

We will be heading to Florida for Thanksgiving! There are still many family members who are patiently waiting to meet William for the first time. My sister will be home with her kiddos this year so mom and dad will have all 6 grandbabies home for Thanksgiving. They are really looking forward to that!

The holidays are such a busy time of year. I hope to continue to post to the blog through the holiday season, however, if I get busy, I wish each of you a very blessed Holiday Season!
