So much I should be doing right now, but I've chosen to blog! I can be selfish sometimes, right? Had a great workout this morning, and now I'm just feeling lazy enough to hang out on the couch for a moment.
Thought I'd share a few pics of how we start our day around here. Sadie starts with an eye patch for an hour while she watches a movie, then jumps in her jumper. She doesn't love it, but tolerates it if she is doing activities she enjoys. The patching has really improved her left eye, which was a little "lazy" and turned inward at times (strabismus). I haven't seen the strabismus in forever (Yay!), but her eye is still a bit droopy (especially when she is tired).
Gotta love that bedhead!
Next up: breakfast. I should have practiced feeding, but we had a 9 am gym appointment, and she usually needs a bath afterwards. Yesterday morning resulted in eggs and grits EVERYWHERE! She actually threw her bowl. Did I mention I have a VERY strong-willed child? She has learned to remove her bib, too. Lovely. She did try to catch it as it fell, though...
Now to rewind.... last night we (minus Greg, who was working) went to the final Lenten dinner at church. The food was great! Sadie and I shared soup, 4 salads, corn casserole, and dessert, while Ben played under the table (I love that boy!). I absolutely LOVE the child/youth director at our church! Reagan is always so creative and wonderful with the kids. Last night, the children filled plastic eggs with candy and bible verses and took a trek outside to put them on stranger's cars. They prayed over each one, "Lord, bless this Easter egg and those who receive it. Let them know you." They also took a bag home to distribute around town. Ben chose a house on the way home and put it on the porch. There are no sweeter words to my ears than hearing my son pray! He also told me that he loved me at least 4 times yesterday. Maybe he's buttering me up for something, but I'll take it!
I'm off to get stuff ready for the TST Spring Carnival tomorrow. We will be at Ben's school setting up from 8 am til 3:30. I hope it goes well!
