What God Has Been Teaching Me

I feel like this year God has decided to teach me the lesson of "Trust in Me. I am in Control. I have a Plan.

First our plans to move to PEI. We filled out all of my immigration paper work and we are now waiting...and waiting... and waiting.

Another thing with the move is that we need to sell our house. So it is on the market, a very saturated house market in the area right now, and we are waiting...and waiting...and waiting.

And today was the day we told everyone that we are expecting our first child in November. So more waiting and more things that could go wrong. What if my paper work doesn't come through on time? What if the baby is born early and is therefore born here in the States?

I could totally stress myself out with these worries. I am a person who likes to be in control. I like to decide on a plan and attack it. I like to know what is coming next.

And yet, I will admit that I have never felt more at peace then I do right now. I am not in control. God has a plan. He has provided for us so perfectly in the past, and I have no doubts that he will do it again. What a promise and what a comfort.

And then he does great things like he did today. We bought a trailer for our move and had been waiting on some papers from the previous owner in order to get a Minnesota title for it, so we can import it into Canada. We had been contacting the previous owner, but never was actually able to speak to him, or get an e-mail reply.

And today we get the mail and what is on the top of the pile? The letter we have been waiting for.

God is good.

He's Rolling!

Gideon has master rolling this week and sometimes, he is not too happy about it... He can go from his back to his belly all on his own. And if you lay him on his belly propped up on his elbows, he will roll over to his back.
He started rolling in his crib at nap time, so that means no more swaddling. Which also means we have to relearn sleeping through the night. He has done two nights swaddle free, which have gone okay. He stirs a few more times during the night, but I only got up once to actually feed him so he will settle back to sleep. So, not too bad and hopefully we get back on track quickly.

A Farm Boy Already

I don't fully understand how this happens, but Gideon already loves the tractor. If he is in the kitchen or the living room and he hears the sound of the tractor, he crawls to the closest window and has a look outside. When he sees it, he often starts drumming on the window sill, so excited. He repeats a little "T" sound, like he is trying to say tractor. He hasn't actually gone for a ride in the tractor, yet. But I think he will be pretty excited to that some day soon.

Storybook Character Day 2016

Today was Storybook Character Day at Joash's school. I tried to make it easy on myself and encouraged Joash to use one of the costumes we have on hand. So, he picked the chef costume and took the book Sam the Chef.  Notice anything about his face? I didn't have time to take a picture before school and we got a call right around lunch time that Joash had a pretty bad fall on the asphalt at school during recess. He was pretty shook up about, so I went to pick him up early today. He seems pretty much his normal self now, so we are not too worried. And of course, school pictures are on the 31st, so we will have to see how well he has healed by then.
