Obi sure does love his baby sister...
Our weather has improved slightly. It's not snowing anymore! It has been raining a lot, and that's good, but we do like the sunny days. I love summer, and while it may not be warm and sunny yet, the sun is setting exactly where it should along the horizon. Bring on the beautiful sunsets!!
Mercy is getting stronger, and working hard to hold her head up for a few minutes at a time.
Malachi is working hard on learning to read. He can read sentences like this: "Will Horse like green hay?" Sometimes he doesn't want to practice his reading. It always helps if I ask him to read to a different person...they always give him good encouragement. Here he is reading with Daddy.
Obi and Tirzah went to the doctor for well-child checkups on Thursday. Obi is 2 years old. He weighed 28 lbs and was 35" tall. He had to have two immunizations (I thought we were all done--boo!--but now we should be.) and a lead test. Mercy is 2 months old. She weighed 12 lbs 12 oz and is 23 1/2" long. She had 3 shots and an oral immunization. Poor baby! She was very crabby that evening, but had no other issues.
Eden was taking pictures, and Mercy fell asleep right at the same time. Such a sweet baby. She had just had a bath and is wearing one of my favorites--a long gown.
