We are enjoying this beautiful rainy fall morning…at home! It’s miraculous. The last few weeks have flown by with the student ministry year beginning and all that comes with it. I (Autumn) also started a few part time jobs (thirty-one consultant, substitute teaching and occasionally babysitting for a friend). Juggling ministry, work and parenting has proved to be a huge area where we need to be trusting the Lord to guide us in how to set appropriate boundaries and priorities. There is always so much to learn in every season. Praise the Lord for His council and the wisdom He promises if we only ask.
Since I rarely have time to blog anymore, consider this Afton’s first fall / five month blog post 🙂 September was a fun milestone for us- we found out last September that we were pregnant. It’s hard to believe that was a year ago and now we sit here with a lovely little girl who is growing and changing every day. People laugh at me when I marvel at how “big” she is. They look at my little 40th percentile baby and say “she’s tiny!” I look at her and say “how did THAT come out of ME!” She is learning to roll over now, which makes naps and sleeping more difficult for our previous sleeping champion because she rolls over and often can’t figure out how to roll back onto her back. We must have trained her to know that sleeping on her tummy is a no- no just by putting her on her back every time we place her in her crib. She is quickly turning into a side sleeper…it’s just a matter of not accidentally tipping over once she gets there in which case she often ends up screaming and usually in a panic somehow ends up with her foot caught between the crib slats. After such trauma, she takes awhile to settle back down so bedtime lately has become quite the ordeal. Here is a picture of what I usually find when all is well during nap time (minus the fact that her foot is caught in the crib- which eventually woke her up).
