My wheels are turning

I am reading a book called Crazy Love by Francis Chan and I have only just finished the first chapter but he has got the wheels in my brain turning! If you have not read that book I encourage you to order it now!!! The first chapter he tries to explain how big God is and who He is and what He is.  He gets your brain thinking about how mighty he is and really how there are no words to describe him.  “If my mind is the size of all the oceans, it would be stupid for me to say He is only the small amount of water I can scoop into my little can.  God is so much bigger, so far beyond our time-encased, air/food/sleep-dependent lives.”  My mind is just bombarded with thoughts that if I try to put them into words it would sound so crazy! So I will try to un-scramble my thoughts but really buy the book!

So update on Brian.  He went back to the dr last week and he still had a lot of blood and protein in his urine.  This is what happens when I can’t go with him because all this time I had to idea it was high protein in his urine too, I thought it was just blood.  Anyway the dr just looked at him for a couple of seconds and told him that she has no idea what is wrong with him.  At least she is honest, right?  She ordered a ct scan for him so he is going to do that on Wednesday.  The results from that will direct our next step.  Either she will treat whatever it might be or he will be referred to a specialist.  So please keep him in your prayers.

I have started to potty train David and I maybe 4 days into it and I am ready to throw in the towel.  I am getting the feeling that maybe he isn’t ready.  I guess I just expected him to catch on quickly and within a few days, viola we have a potty trained boy! Not so much.  I have these pull ups that have a little picture on them and if he pees it makes the picture go away.  I have been trying to entice him with that and with m&ms but every time I ask him if he has to go potty he says no.  So I have been setting the timer for every 30 minutes to go to the bathroom but that gets a tad annoying and if the timer does not go off he pees in his pull up.  So I guess I just need to keep at it but man it is a lot of work!

Jonathan is doing great! His top favorite words are snack, bite, more, no, mine, mommy, dayday, dada, and now he says Larry!! He is getting his bottom two eye teeth so he has been cranky, fussy and oh so fun!  He just had his 1 year check up and he is doing great! He weighs 25 pounds 10 ounces and I think his about 30 inches tall.  He is really not too far behind his brother.  I love watching the boys play together and be brothers! There is nothing  greater than a sibling!

I will post an update when we know the results of the ct scan.  Please keep Brian in your prayers.
