"Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ, just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we would be holy and blameless before Him. In love He predestined us to adoption as sons through Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the kind intention of His will, to the praise of the glory of His grace, which He freely bestowed on us in the Beloved." Ephesians 1:3-6

Project 52: week thirty

January 5-10

We have been continuing to adjust to the new normal and Daddy is back to work full time-two days from home and three at the office.  We are so thankful for the schedule he has been blessed with!
We received some meals this week from friends.  Let me tell you--if it is on your heart to bless someone with a meal--DO IT! It is the biggest blessing to a busy mom! Not only do I not have to think about what is for dinner or preparing it, but I get to spend that time in other ways.  During such a time of transition, it is such a blessing to be able to fully concentrate on my children and playing with them. 
Here is a peek into our week and some updates:

Elliana is doing great! She is pulling herself up, as you can see here:)  She is SO close to walking, but just isn't quite there yet.  Here is a picture where you can see her braids:)

Declan sure loves his little bro! It was finally (what I thought would be) a chilly day so they could wear their matching hoodies---but no surprise, as soon as we got outside we took them off!

Tuesday my sweet sis Kacia offered to come bring me lunch and hang out for a bit.  It's possible, but a big challenge for me to take all 4 to the park, so it was great to have Kacia here to help! And it sure was fun for me to not have a baby strapped to my chest or inside my belly so I could play along with my kiddos!!

She got up and did the first monkey bar all by herself!  Cute story--when a friend brought dinner Tuesday evening, Raelynn told her she was going to have a birthday soon.  The friend asked how old she will be.  Raelynn said "I'm going to be 3. I'm older now and can go on the monkey bars all by myself!"

Elliana crawled in the tunnel for the first time today!

Declan wants to do everything his big sister does.  So as she was counting with bears, he wanted to join too:)

This big guy is one month old this week on January 10! (more on that in another post!)

We were all excited that new helmets came for Elliana and Declan.  Daddy bought a bike trailer for the back of the bike so he can take 3 kids now!

I had two helpers this time when baking cookies! Declan is at that fun age that he is so interested and can do a little bit to help.
