Yenerich Update

Well, I realize I haven't posted an update blog in a little bit. So here's what's going on in the Yenerich household:

*Callie is almost crawling. She is mobile and getting places, but has yet to master the hand/foot crawl. She is up on all fours and tends to go backwards currently. I imagine very soon she will get the forward motion. We are close (but haven't) to proclaiming her first word as "dada". She definitely calls Dave that when she sees him. I get more of a "nana" from her.

*Noah is singing all the time. I mean all the time. It's pretty cute. He's also bossy at times and whiny. Both are traits that we are working on. He really does a great job playing with Callie and helping me take care of her. Potty training...well, let's just say so far Noah has been a one-hit wonder.

*I hemmed my first pair of pants! You would think I would've learned this handy trait by now, but My friend Abby came over one day and showed me how to use the sewing machine that we've literally had for 4 years that I've been afraid of. She made me thread it a few times so I would know what I was doing. She also taught me how to hem pants by hand. I feel so empowered!

*I'm getting pretty good at guitar hero even though Dave still kicks my butt. I say this because I've played against Helms and Miller (both guitarists) and won. I won't tell you that they were playing on the expert level and I was only playing on medium, because that would steal my glory.

*I've painted more trim. Our bathroom is now completely finished. I also painted the main bathroom and foyer's trim as well. Slow progress. Now, I'm anxious to do the pillars in the living room and the rest of the trim. I may need to do it when the kids aren't around for a length of time so that I can move furniture.

*Dave is on his new schedule at the AEC: 3 days of work, 4 days off. His first round will be this weekend when he works three days in a row. We'll see how this new schedule works out. It will be an adjustment from his old one.

*My house is a mess. Per usual. This time it's because of the painting and the fact that I am deep cleaning. There's also the ever present clutter of toys that permeates our existence.

*Perhaps the most important: God is really moving in my life right now. I've had some good conversations, and some really good prayer. Tony's latest sermon series is kicking my a good way. I'm definitely realizing my need for God and how I need to depend on Him. It's brought out some really good things and I feel that God is definitely shaping me right now.

Exciting about all the painting!!!

Yeah for crawling beebees ;) let the fun begin!

Superexciting about what God is doing in your life.....I'm finding daily that these kids bring me to my knees more than anything else and are keeping so close to God...what a good, good thing.
