New friends are great! I'm not great at making new friends, it scares me for some reason. Those that know me, know that I'm a crazy weirdo that's very outgoing. But for some reason, when it comes to new people, I am very shy and scared. Especially with people that I hope will really like me. I can't talk to them b/c I'm too shy, but I'm willing them to become my new friend in my mind! It totally works... in my mind... although, I haven't had too much success with this approach unfortunately. Let me know if you've gotten it to work out for you, I want your tips!
Anywho, a few months ago, Grant and I went to a Pastor's Association dinner for all of the pastor's in the local valley where we live. I was nervous/excited because I heard that this other couple was going to be there, (James and Jacqueline) and I was hoping beyond hope that we would become friends.... mainly because she was young like me, and those are few and far between in this valley! I had heard her and her husband lead worship at a Pastor's Association Service we had a few months earlier and was blown away by their talent (Another reason I knew we had to be friends).
The whole night I was hoping that we'd somehow get thrown together and have a chance to talk, but it wasn't working out. There were assigned seats, and we weren't seated by each other at all... shame shame! But thankfully at the very end... as we were all talking about how we needed to leave, somehow, we got thrown together! And we just started talking... and talking... and talking! And we probably could have kept talking if we all weren't also trying to go home as well.
*As a side note, we were both hugely pregnant and I told her about the Bradley Method of childbirth that I had studied and planned on using, and she was all sorts of interested. Upon talking to her after she did give birth, she said she used the Bradley Method (natural childbirth), and she said that it worked out great! After my childbirth that involved much intervention (unfortunately), I give her mad props for going through with it, especially since she just heard about it through a stranger! She's my new hero!
|Jacqueline: 2 days overdue; Me: 8 months pregnant|
I found out that she opened a daycare in her home and was looking for children, and I was desperately looking for someone I could trust to watch Abby when I went back to work a few days a week. God is so good for setting these things up for us! Many of you were wondering who watches Abby while I'm subbing during the week... so, meet Jacqueline, my new friend! I love to chat and laugh with her! I'm so thankful that God sent a wonderful new friend into my life!
And what's more, our little ones are new best friends too! Here's Peyton and Abby:

I hope that this new discovery didn't attribute to the new sickness we have! Mommy's allergies are flaring up again, and I think that is part of the reason I started getting sick too! I've been having a hard time getting uninterrupted sleep the past few nights, so Tuesday morning, mommy took me down to the doctor and she said I have a little bit of a cold. I'm pretty congested, but my nose is clear, so try as mommy might to suction my nose, nothing comes out. Mommy has been trying the saline solution with the suction bulb, and that's helping a little, but I'm still pretty congested. I made mommy wake up 3 or 4 times Tuesday night to help me, and she had to sub the next day. Thankfully, she had enough energy to make it through the day without ruining her non-caffeine streak. I hope I get better soon so I can go back to sleeping for 8 hours straight at night; I (mommy) really like sleeping 8 hours straight! But, I think I'm mostly all better now. I slept through the night again last night, without a pillow to elevate my head so I could breathe; and I slept for 9 hours!

Here is a video of a precious girl shaking her rattle for the first time!
(Sorry it's turned to the side, I can't figure out how to turn it straight, if you know how, let me know please!)

yup... my child barfed all over me... This is after I wiped my mouth off.... I now know what her regurgitated meals taste like.... mmmmm!
Oh a good note... (although, the above might be a good note for YOU, but not for me), she is starting to make gurgling noises... saying what I think is a G sound, like "geee."
Also, I tried some more tummy time today, and from the second I laid her down, she held her head for for roughly 2 minutes without laying her head down on the mat at all! Yah! And she wasn't crying, she was smiling at me! Happy Days!
I guess those things make up for being her baby bird earlier today!

Nomi Sarah paid us a visit over Labor Day Weekend and we had a blast. Nomi Sarah played with me, and made me laugh, but best of all, she sang fun songs to me! I love it when people sing to me! It makes me smile and giggle! And I look really cute when I smile! Thanks for coming up and visiting Nomi!
