Prayer Needed!

Alright, all you prayin' mamas!  I have a prayer request.  My dear friends, and the worship pastor at our church, Jacob & Beth Winn, had twins yesterday, 11 weeks early.  Lilly Claire (3.02 lbs) and Davis(3.2 lbs)  are doing well in the NICU at UT, but their mama & daddy need prayer as they handle the changes that have all come so suddently, and the babies need our prayers for their development and the long hospital stay awaiting them.  I know you'll join me in praying for this precious family!

Wow...has it been over a month?

Dinner out a Litton's for our anniversary!

More walking!!!

Mae Beth, Sarah, & Tyler at the Farragut Middle School talent show!  Mae Beth rocked it out with "The Climb" by Miley Cyrus...I'd SO rather hear her sing it than the original!

Anna Kate and storytime with Daddy after he got back from a long week at market!  We were so glad to see him!

All I'm going to say is that life has been INSANE the past month, and I think I've decided that blogging is like working out...if you quit doing it consistently, it's just easy to stop all together. As of a few weeks ago, Tyler and I are helping out with the advertising for the company, which is a fantastic opportunity that we're thrilled to have the chance at, but at the same time, it's been trial by fire, as we're re-opening the Ashley Store in Turkey Creek in a week or so and are handling most of the creative for the promotion running the end of this month thru the 4th! WHEW!

I'm not quite sure where to start with Anna Kate's progress. She's walking EVERYWHERE and has been since right after her birthday. She's cutting pre-molars (I think that's what you call them) on the left, but not the right side, still not talking, and eating solid food by herself. I'm terrified to let her try to spoon-feed herself yet, though, so any tips from the veteran toddler mamas out there, would be welcome! :)

Our 7th anniversary was a couple of weeks ago. It's amazing how much things have changed in those 7 years, especially in the year since our last anniversary. Parenthood is an amazing part of this journey Tyler and I are on together, and we definitely feel blessed beyond what we deserve! God is good!
