Family Verses

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. I will be found by you," declares the Lord, "and will bring you back from captivity."
-Jeremiah 29:11-14

Caleb's BooBoo!

Got his blue arm this morning! Bubbles will help!
We love a waterproof cast!

Running around with Gpa Mike!

Caleb had his first major booboo! He fell off a bench at the farmer's market, and unfortunately I didn't know he was hurt right away. We headed straight home, and he seemed to be doing fine eating and playing with his toys. I noticed he wasn't putting pressure on his left arm though. After talking with the doc, we decided to watch it for a day or so since there was no swelling or bruising. Well, a week goes by and he still complains about his hand! So we got an x-ray and sure enough... he had a buckle fracture in his radius. Basically, that means his radius is a little bent. They referred us to the orthopedic people, and they want him in a cast for 2 weeks! So... it looks worse than what it is, but I'm so thankful I followed my gut. Obviously, he seems to be adjusting well to his cast which we call his "blue arm." When I ask him if he likes his blue arm, he says "Yes!" :) Thank you, Lord, for keeping Caleb safe! We'll keep you updated on how it heals.

P.S. Have to say thank you to Uncle Dominic for the awesome pictures with Gpa Mike!

Who's going to blink first?
I'm showing Abby how it works!

Aren't they cute? Abby trying out her new chair. :)
Every now and then I get a glimpse of how nice it will be when Caleb and Abby start playing together. I hope that they will be best of friends! Caleb treats Abby so sweetly most of the time. He's starting to realize he might have to share with her though! Abby is going to have to toughen up with Caleb for a brother... he's kind of a klutz. :) Look forward to proof of that in my next posting!

Words of Wisdom from Abigail :)

I know this is kind of long, but I wanted to make sure I got Abigail "talking" for a little bit. Her big brother is always so conscious of his sissy all the time. :)
