Dancing to the Richard Simmons video.
Nanny Kim also did some amazing Cleopatricesce things with Rhi's hair-clips.
Alden enjoyed seeing Nanny Kim as well, although I think he wasn't quite sure what to make of her. Don't worry, Alden, no one does!
Mrs. Stoner had a very talented and kind friend who wanted to make a gift for the big sister. She made a beautiful crayon and paper carrying case that we all love.
Daddy took a day trip out to Mt. Airy to get a cheap riding lawn mower. So far he has had to replace the starter and tighten the blades. I think it still needs some repairs, but Rhianwen loves taking a spin around the yard on it.
Alden is doing well. He gained like a champ this past week. Let's hope he keeps it up/mommy can keep up with his needs! We're still using the shield as he still does his little creasing number if I don't. Of course, I obsess over every poop, pee, and feeding, and wonder if those little fingers are looking fatter or thinner over the period of the day. I know worrying never helps, but sometimes it is hard! Especially in the afternoon when he doesn't seem to sleep well and just likes to snack and snooze. Blah. Wally keeps saying I'll finally decide he's gotten enough to eat when he's 16 and huge. Ha! In the life of Alden, he really enjoys watching ceiling fans and clocks that have second hands. Just mesmerizing.
Rhianwen the little helper; Alden the little go-with-the-flow man.
Tonight during devotions Rhianwen was summarizing the story about the tabernacle for mommy. She said, "Jesus went to China." Hm. Interesting. I never got that out of the tabernacle accounts. Perhaps it has something to do with letting her watch a bunch of Olympics.
