less than a week to go, and I’m starting to get impatient, or at least I was last night. I just want to hold my little girl! yet we still pray that God will bring her in His timing, as He certainly knows better than we do. mama’s washing the windows and we’re trying to enjoy the last few days of calm. plus the neighbors all have the flu, so it’d be nice to have that be done with before we send Caleb over there to hang out while we’re out having the baby.
meanwhile a couple random things:
Caleb LOVES his blocks. he’s usually carrying them around the house, and we call him peg-leg when he’s crawling around with one, as you can hear it clacking on the wood floor every step. so it shouldnt have been surprising that I found a long skinny one in the foot of his jammies this morning. my only guess is that he was holding it while I was changing him and somehow slipped it in there. so he slept with a block cozied up to his foot last night. oh and he’s walking quite well now. he can walk across the house on his own now and is clearly having fun with it.
in music news, I just got the brand new release from Indelible Grace, called “Beams of Heaven.” very good stuff, but not as mellow as the previous album (which I prefer), and not as many memorable tunes yet. I think there’s a couple worth trying to do for church, and nearly all are good listening. and Caleb likes dancing to it of course.
for church this week, we’re doing a modernized rendition of I Need Thee Every Hour (the version that’s on Randall Goodgame’s CD, with a funky F#7 in there). I’m excited to have Shaun on the drum this time, and hopefully we can get Beth Ann involved on vocals soon, as she’s trying to shake her “strictly formal” image. hopefully for Chirstmas we’ll be doing a version of “O Come, O Come” that’s a slight nod to Sufjan’s version. Joe loves E-minor, and it loves him back.
