While visiting with the dr today which by the way I loved she affirmed that a baby Blaine's age is too little and does not have enough muscle and fat to handle shots in the arm. THANK YOU VERY MUCH! I don't know why I let that nurse argue with me and why I didn't just get up and walk out with my baby. Some of you wouldn't put it past me if you knew me very well. We no longer will be getting shots at our local health unit. Instead I will go to our pediatrician and do them at a well visit like big city folk do.
On another note I was told that I need to feed Blaine more butter. He is 1% on weight and 10% on height. Oh my. Not so worried. He has always be low on his percentiles. I just found it funny that she said he needed to eat more butter. She must watch Paula Deen.
We had a great day together. Now off to Walmart at 10pm. Crazy I know.

Blaine is sleeping and I hope he will for a while. He is on meds so I hope he doesn't have any weird side effects or fever.
Tomorrow we have a well visit in Little Rock. I have decided after going back and forth on the issue to use a pediatrician in LR. Every time I go here I have drama. The dr doesn't take the time with me, prescribes unnecessary meds, misdiagnoses them and after 4 months on one drug go to a different dr to be diagnosed as something totally different, takes your kid and does tests on them without telling you what the tests are, and almost lets your kid die before getting them out of this hospital, and allows staff to do things to your child behind your back that is the cause of your child being sick! So needless to say after using several of our drs here and having several traumatic experiences we are moving on to LR.

I guess Dean hasn't been to Walmart today.:o) And if you have you should know it didn't effect my trip at all. Please continue with the stories. It is hilarious. Probably not so much for you but I do get a kick out of reading it.

I was invited to a pool party which if you know me is not my idea of fun getting in a bathing suit in front of people. But I did go. Did not swim though. I know party pooper! The pool party was a kick off to a women's Bible study. I was still out of my comfort zone at the thought of going to another function not hosted by my church. Why? Don't know just was. Today I had no fear and just went. The study is wonderful and the women are just the cherry on top of the sundae. I am so excited to grow in my walk and being able to meet new people that are there to learn and be honest.
I do have a tendency to talk and not listen. Being in a group you don't know you tend to listen so you can learn about them. I grew up in the church I am in. There is nothing wrong with being at home but when you stay at home you think you know everything and there is nothing left to learn. I am enjoying learning new things and meeting new people. I really needed this.

The fact that we are being persecuted proves that we have been faithful.
In fact, everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted 2 Timothy 3:12
It is going to happen. You are going to be misunderstood, looked down on, broken, talked about. The only one you need to worry about pleasing is God. Keep living your life like you know you should.
If he's got it he'll give it, if you need it take it, don't ask him to do it if you don't want it done and done right. Failure and doing something half way is not in his vocabulary. He didn't start with much and has earned all he's got. He will work you to death before he ever thinks of quiting. God's way is the only way and always comes first. He is a leader, a friend, a daddy, and a christian man. He expects the best but loves you no matter what. Always encourages never do you fail.
My dad is a working man. His hands tell the story. He has done it all from a soldier to a farmer a carpenter to a business owner. What ever it takes to provide for his family. We have always been priority.
They say you either marry someone just like your dad or someone totally opposite. My dad and I haven't always seen eye to eye but the qualities I love about him I see in my husband.
Thank you dad for all you give, all you do, for who you are, and always being there. You are loved, appreciated, and adored. It doesn't matter how old I am I will always be my daddy's little girl. The perks of being the youngest.:o)

How do you decide who to forgive? I don't think it is something I really have ever thought about. I know when a family member hurts me I dwell on it for a little while and maybe vent some but it usually is set aside and normal life continues. There may be a comment or two about it thrown out there that may or may not be nice but other than that it is over with. I am sure that is not healthy. If it is a close friend that is like family pretty much the same applies.
However thinking about all of this if it is someone that I am not close to I am caught off guard by the hurt and for some reason it seems to bother me more. I tend not to let go of it and the enemy constantly brings it up in my mind. I do forgive but not forget. Mostly because when I am not close to them I want to talk about it because I want to be sure they are ok with me before I put myself out there again. If it ever does get talked about then it is much easier to forget. I think it works the other way too. When I stick my foot in my mouth I am waiting on them to go off on me so I can apologize. I don't want to just bring it up out of no where in case it didn't bother them. Then I sit there while I am talking to them really not listening just wanting to apologize and I don't have the guts. Most of the time I go home and pray about it ask God for forgiveness and pray that if they are hurt by me it will not be used by the enemy and they will find a way to forgive me.
No matter how stressed or frazzled they make me at the end of the day when I watch them sleep I thank God for these 2 precious miracles.

The top picture is Blaine on his first birthday. The bottom picture is Brenden on his first birthday. Of course I had to find one in the same pose with similar expressions. I see some of the same features but they have a totally different look. Oh well just playing around. Not that I have anything I need to be doing.:o)

He had too much fun digging into the cake. Between burger, baked beans, pickles, cheese, and cake his hair was awful. For some reason he constantly puts his hands in his hair when he eats. The giraffe was a hit. We knew he would love it. When he sees an animal he gets so excited and all he wants to do is bury his face in their fur. He is such a mess. I am a little sad that my babies are growing up so fast but excited to experience new things with them. I am ready for the baby stage to be over so we can go and do. It is sad that this will be the last baby of our family though. Barry and I have considered adopting a girl mostly because I am not putting my body through all of that again and get another boy.:o) We will see. You never know what God has in store.

We are doing a wagon this year! I thought it was cute and simple.
