Yesterday I mentioned that you needed to open an account with Google in order to view my blog. After researching a little more, it turns out that you do not need to create an account because I will leave my page public. This way everyone can check in on our family without having to create yet another account that you will rarely use. Don't we all have enough of them already?!
Anyway, in just about an hour from now, Jacob's gracious mother has offered to take Luke for the afternoon. She lives near Jacob's work, so he'll just pick Luke up on his way home from work. I love my dear boy, but he's driven me just a little bit crazy over the past week! He has decided that naps are entirely voluntary, and he never 'volunteers' to take one. I'll put him in his room for over an hour, and he'll just play, sing, and jump on the bed. I suppose it does give me some quiet time, but within an hour of getting out of his room, it's very apparent that a nap would have improved his mood and made the rest of our day go much more smoothly!
Luke has been testing the boundaries that are set for him. My day is filled with asking him to "Please stop driving Tonka trucks over your sister's head." Needless to say, I'm looking forward to a quiet afternoon with just Emma. Who knows, I may even end up with a clean bathroom! :)

On the left is a typical 'Luke' face before he gets disciplined.....on the right is the face he shows me after he's been in trouble.

Emma had her 2 month appointment last Tuesday. She's a very healthy 11 pounds! The doctor said that she's doing great! The only thing we're keeping an eye on are her eyes. She seems to have a difficult time focusing on things that are closer that 18 inches from her face. We're praying that she is just developing slower in this area, and that she will grow out of it. Either way, we feel so blessed that God has trusted us with two of His amazing children!

Jacob's work is full swing into the busy season. He has been working long hours and most Saturdays. Needless to say, we're all looking forward to Memorial Day weekend very much!

Here are some more recent pictures of our family for you to enjoy.

My beautiful Emma at 2 weeks. It's hard to believe that she'll be 10 weeks on Wednesday! More pics of her to come.
