Lego my eggo...

I'm developing a love-hate relationship with my son's favourite toy - Lego.

For Christmas, he received not one, but two, giant boxes filled with assorted Lego (actually Duplo blocks) pieces that I keep finding all over the house. You never know what you might step on in the dark when travelling from my bedroom, down the hall, to the boys' room to pick up a crying baby while half-asleep. They're also in my recliner, and worst of all, my bed!

The other night, my son was enjoying playing, building and creating while watching a movie in my bedroom (the only DVD player is there). We had a bit of a temper tantrum when it was time to pick up the 100 or so pieces off of my bed, so the two boxes were put aside and out of reach for a couple of days.

Tommy promised he had learned his lesson, so we gave them back. Needless to say, I found more Lego between the sheets...

It's all over...

Well, Jonathan is now 7 weeks old, as of tomorrow...

Boy, has it been a challenging time. I was put on bedrest in September, due to complications, and Jonathan was delivered by Cesarean 4 weeks early on November 16.

This will be my last baby, unless God provides us with the funds to adopt in the future. I guess we'll just have to wait and see what happens.

Jonathan and I have had a bit of a bumpy road since his birth, but we are slowly beginning to bond. He's a strong little one, holding his head up and even rolling over (from front to back) as early as 6 weeks.

His big brother, Tommy, just loves him to death and is very helpful, for the most part. It's sometimes hard to remember that Tommy is only 3 years old as he seems more mature than that most of the time, especially when it comes to his vocabulary.

We've been enjoying having the Logos II in Bermuda the last 2 weeks and have helped out with errands and transportation while they have been here. We've also gotten to know a few of the crew. I've thoroughly enjoyed the international environment!
