Another month has flown by for us and our littlest is already five months old. I thought time flew with Payton when he was my only child, but it is going even faster with the third. Wasn’t he just seven pounds last week? I was certain he was. But with all of the changes come new and exciting accomplishments/growth. Like two new teeth! And the ability to roll anywhere at any time. And the new found prowess of eardrum shattering shrieking. Awe.some. Thank goodness this face makes up for many moments of shrieking.
At his four month immunizations check up he weighed in at 16.5 lbs and 27 inches. On the same trajectory as his brothers for height, but a bit lighter in weight. My back still protests.
The faces he is learning to make kill me. And his grins help this tired momma stay sane.
You can never go wrong with a baby eating his toes. He quickly learned his lesson to only suck on those toes seeing as the teeth are now present.
Life is going to be getting even more hectic around here as I start my next class this coming Monday. In the hopes of keeping food on the table, clothes in the closet, and my head above water, I will be taking a break from blogging. You might find me occasionally popping in, but those times will be few and far between. I’ll see you back here in July. I’ll have lots of fun stuff to share as our Kramer Family Summer School will be kicking off. Happy spring, friends!
Have you ever over thought something? Spent so much time thinking about something that it becomes unwieldy and hard to comprehend? Then someone comes by who takes an objective look and neatly summarizes the problem/solution in 2.3 seconds. After the feeling of wanting to hit him/her for being so nonchalant and hitting yourself for not figuring it out sooner, the realization that it was always this simple sets in.
I think the Bible is sometimes like that. We over analyze and over think it to the point that we forget that the Bible tells a story. The greatest true story ever told. It is a story that is told throughout the entirety of the Bible, and a story that continues on to today. So often we read the Bible in snippets or chunks, and forget that everything means something in connection to the story. Everything that has been included has been included for a reason. We just often forget the overall story.
Beginning next week I will be starting a new Bible study at my home (email me if you want details!). We are going to be studying “The Stranger on the Road to Emmaus”.
I once read that in Jewish culture, everything means something. All things point back to the living God and His story throughout history. Through this study we’ll be learning how the story, as told in the Bible, reaches its culmination in the God-person of Jesus Christ. Who was Jesus and what did He teach? This is what we’re going to be looking at. If you live in the area, you are more than welcome to join us. Zip me an email for more information.
