Sunday, May 3, Ruth was baptized in our church.  It was a choice Keith and I made with ease; we knew we wanted to raise our newest girl in the church as we are the older kids. 

It took us awhile to get organized and a date that worked for the family.  We were waiting for the weather to turn too, we didn't want to have his family traveling so far in our snowy winter this year.  This date enabled us to celebrate her baptism and Caden and Caleb's birthday with one luncheon after church.

The service itself also coincided with communion Sunday, which is always something moving for me. 

Our family stood in the front of the church with us during the baptism and tears welled in my eyes as she was blessed.  Keith said the same thing that night as we talked about it later. 

Ruth, you are loved by your family and your church family.  We strive to raise you to know Christ and live like him.

You Are More Than You Know

I just finished this book. It was a good read, and I think for the right person incredibly helpful and insightful.I personally don't feel like I live my life in fear or controlled by fear too often, occasionally yes, but not regularly.  (Maybe I'm in denial?!)  This books focused on overcoming fear with faith, which is an excellent message."At this juncture of my life I'm not convinced normal is an obtainable or even desirable goal, but embracing our God-given uniqueness is. In fact, it's an adventure that leads us to embracing that we are more than we know because the Lord is greater - far greater - than we can ever imagine." -Patsy Clairmont

Uh oh!

Ruth has started saying Uh Oh now!  She started it at the sitter's yesterday and continued through the evening!  I'm hoping it's the gateway to more words for her!  Currently her vocabulary is lots of sounds, mom and uh oh.

Do you have allergies?

Every time someone has sneezed over the weekend, Elinore asks "do you have allergies?"

Clearly she's learned about allergy season somewhere and is concerned about others and their allergies now.

It's cute.
