Baby Moses

We had the opportunity to get a second "look" at Baby Moses yesterday during an ultrasound exam. The first picture is his face--you can see his eyes, nose, cheeks, etc... if you look closely! The second one is a little harder to capture, but he was yawning on the ultrasound, and this is a picture of his mouth open; his cheeks and nose are the only other facial parts visible (his eyes would be in the shadow above). Hope you enjoy this sneak peek at our little one as much as we did. Can't wait to see him face-to-face!

(More) Snow, Snowcream, and Valentines!

This week has been busy with another snow storm (!), first tastes of snowcream (for the girls--Rusty and I are veterans!), and valentines. Rusty and I enjoyed a Valentine's Dinner with friends from church one evening, and the girls had fun putting icing and sprinkles on cupcakes this afternoon. The snow is beautiful, but it feels like it hasn't stopped in 2 months! It's scheduled to keep on comin', so hopefully we'll make it till spring without too much cabin fever.

In other news...we have another ultrasound this coming week to learn more about what we can expect for Baby Moses's labor/delivery (potential need for a c-section), and we are still waiting to hear about the status of Rusty's acceptance to MBTS's PhD program (hopefully later this month). Please join us in praying for these things as well as continued communication with churches in the Kansas City area (regarding pastoral ministry for Rusty). We'll write another update as these things progress.

Thank you for praying with us...and enjoy the pictures!

Please Pray

(Pa and Eleanor: Ndu, Cameroon, June 2009)

Please pray for Pa, a good friend and our family cook while in Cameroon last year. We received word this morning that he has suffered a debilitating stroke. We are unsure of his spiritual condition, and are concerned about his coping with recovery. Please pray that He would trust God alone (not the traditional "healers") and have his health and heart restored. Thank you!

Cabin Fever!

This is what we resort to when we've been snowed inside for days on end!

Moses's Corner

I just finished a wall hanging for Baby Moses tonight and thought I'd post a couple of pictures. He will have a snug little corner in our room while we transition this summer. It's coming along!

Big Girls!

Potty training (for Eleanor) and big girl beds have been on the agenda this week, as you can see from the picture of the girls in their new bunk beds! Eleanor is turning into a "big girl" (as she will happily tell you), and Sophie is enjoying her new perch atop their new beds. They're growing up fast!
