"I want" or "I do" are two of Josiah's favorite things to say. In mid-May he went from saying only a few words to trying constantly to communicate with us! He likes to play pretend and dress himself with his baby brother's clothes or mommy's apron and do fashion shows for all of us. Here he climbed into his brother's clothes drawer and is sorting through what he would like to wear next!
Here Josiah is picking out a flower for Mommy from a bouquet at church made for the mothers. Believe it or not, Tonya got the "youngest mother present" award at church!
Kris' family threw a baby shower for "L.B." since they were not able to with Josiah. It was called a "bare essentials" shower and she got lots of needed basic baby items that are needed for #2! We played several fun games and had delicious food!
Daddy's little helper is going at it! We are preparing the nursery to get a revision in decor. A border of the "leap frog" theme will be put half way up the wall and the bottom half will have pale yellow stripes painted on it. Josiah is pictured here helping make sure the tape marked off for painting is level. "Looks good Dad!"
Tonya got the joy of teaching a class in Vacation Bible School at church this year. She was prepared to teach a Hispanic class in Spanish, but unfortunately no Hispanics attended despite publicity in the area. Instead, she got 6 energetic 4th grade boys! They were a challenge, but much worth the investment in time and energy! Some of the kids who attended are doing the "Game Day Central" theme song with motions for their parents here.
