We are still alive!

Another month has almost past and I really didn't think life could get any busier that it already was! Was I ever wrong! I have been to the doctors office at least twice a week since Yabby has been home. Mainly the visits have been for her with one of the rest of us sprinkled in every once in a while. From giardia to ear infections and everything in between. We are praising God that nothing has been serious.
Yabby is very, very, very loving her family(as she would put it:). She has a new favorite song. It is a Toby Mac song and I'm not sure the name of it. But it melts my heart when I hear her sing it. The chorus goes like this...sort of..."I love my family. God bless my family." It is in the cd player in my car and to her brother and sisters dismay she sings it loudly even after the song has ended.

One Month in America!

Did one month really go by?! It is fun to reflect on a little girl who had never used a straw before that is now playing the Wii with her brother and sister.
Rob and I have often used this analogy to gain perspective. It is like we started reading a novel a third of the way through. We aren't sure how it started. We are figuring out the plot as we go along. As we keep reading the plot becomes a little clearer.
I know we will not completely figure her out. That is kind of a joke in our house...When Joel was one week old I said to Rob, quite confidently,"Go to work! I need to figure him out!" Every year on his birthday Rob asks me laughing,"So, have you figured him out yet?"(sorry,I think I have told this story before:)) The same goes with Isabelle and Yabsira. God is the only one who knows them completely. So, we need to constantly be seeking Him on how to raise them. After all, He knows the whole story!
