Our weekend

Our weekend started out a bit unplanned.  We found out that the offer on our house in Omaha fell through.  That was a big bummer because we will most likely have to pull out of our offer in Lincoln, as well.  We also have some things to take care of with our home in Omaha before we put it back on the market.  I am so thankful for Craig who has been doing so much to get everything taken care of with our house this weekend.  I know it is a lot – especially with him working in Lincoln.  I thought it was funny, and non-coincidental, how I had posted about trust a few days ago.  I can really see how much God is inviting me to trust Him right now with everything going on with our transition to Lincoln.  When I was praying this morning, my bible passage was ‘Dependence on God’ (Matthew 6:25-34).  He is speaking to me and making Himself very present through the uncertainty.

Saturday morning, Craig’s Aunt Alice and Uncle Jeff invited us over for brunch.  Craig’s cousin, Andrew, and his girlfriend, Meghan, were in town.  It was fun spending time with them and meeting Meghan.

Henry fell asleep on the way home, and I got to go on a run outside!  It felt so good to run.  I only ran about 2 miles.  It was tough.  I can tell I haven’t been running consistently throughout the winter.  But it felt so good to run, challenge myself, and tell myself to keep going.  I am so grateful to have been able to go.

When Henry woke up, Craig, Henry, and I went to the park.  Last summer and fall, Henry loved swinging at the park.  I was excited to take him again to see if he would like them just as much and to see what else he would like.  This time, he did enjoy swinging, but he loved the slides.  He would say, ‘g’ ‘g’, after he finished, which we told ourselves meant ‘again’.  He smiled and laughed going down it.

When we got home, we brought his Little Tikes car outside.  We went up and down the sidewalks in it.  He loves his car.  He honked the horn sometimes and just enjoyed the ride.

On Sunday, Henry and I headed to Lincoln for my cousin Jaime’s bridal shower.  It was fun to see her and her excitement for her wedding and marriage.  It was nice to see my family and catch up with them.

–I forgot to take pictures this weekend, but I am going to try to get better at that so I can post them with my blog posts.


Henry Happenings


When I picked Henry up from daycare yesterday, Rita said he was trying to stack and put legos today.  He was also “getting” how to do puzzles.  He watches the big kids put them together, and he tries to do it, too.  Who gets excited about puzzles?  This Mama.  I love puzzles.  So I was very, very proud of him.  🙂

When we got home, I wanted to watch him see if he would try to put this puzzle together.  And he did!  He got some of the pieces in.  It was so fun watching him try.  And then, of course, he had to put some of his play ketchup on each piece.  Play food is typically seen in one of his hands.

He is walking further and further each time he tries.  I think he is walking around more at daycare than at home.  He still walks on his knees quite a bit at home.  But he is so close!  Craig and I love having him walk back and forth to each other.  Henry is always pretty proud of himself, too, after he walks.  He starts clapping for himself once he finishes walking to one of us with a big smile on his face.

He is still mostly saying ‘Dada’.  Occasionally I hear a ‘Mama’, but his favorite to say is still ‘Dada’.

We love watching you grow, Henry!
