Oh my word. What's a mother to do?
Anyway, my wonderful sister-in-law Angie gave us an extra crib she had (thanks, Ang!), which enables us to keep Elijah in the old crib....which makes me sigh a sigh of relief. I'm not smart enough to know what the mature age is that boys graduate from crib to bed, but I'm guessing that the rowdy age of one and a half is still crib age...in this house anyway!
So the other night, we had an "awakening" for a boy's name and firmed up our favorite girl's name - both complete with middle names too.....so just stay tuned for one of them to be announced! Should be any day now...
"The woman must bear her children in pain, and in providing for his family the man must reap many thorns and thistles, and labor in the sweat of his brow. This burden should cause both man and wife to call on God, and should remind them of their eternal destiny in HIS kingdom. Earthly society is only the beginning of the heavenly society, the earthly home an image of the heavenly home, the earthly family a symbol of the fatherhood of God."
