Dear God

Dear God,

Thank You for this wonderful dinner.

I love you God.

You're the best thing in this whole world
that I've ever not seen.


That was Azriel's prayer at dinner last night.

Liberty's new freedom

Just wanted to share with you all the fact that little miss Liberty is now on the path to walking. She can, and will, walk across the room to you as long as you stand her up and coax her along. She has yet to just get up and walk on her own to get from place to place; she's still crawling for that. Anyhow, I'm excited that she's beginning to walk because I've really been looking forward to it! She's crawling past me as I type so I better see where she's headed. More later!

Flyin' High

Az picked up a $1 kite at Target a couple weeks ago and it was a windy day when he bought it so he tried it out as soon as we got home. He had his first ever successful kite flying adventure. He's tried to fly a kite many times before but this time all the conditions were just right and he was able to do it right out in front of our house.

Oh, and I had to add a couple of Azriel's interesting comments! Last night as we were sitting together on the couch he turns to me and very seriously requests that I start giving him the front page of the newspaper every day (we don't even get one!). I ask him why and he answers, "I want to know what's going on in the world"

This morning, not 20 minutes ago he tells me, "Mom, you're the BEST Mom in the whole world!". Wanting him to elaborate on why I'm so wonderful I asked him WHY and he responds, "Because you're the only one I've got."

And not to leave out Avigail. I'll share something exceedingly sweet that she did for me!
The weeks leading to Easter she kept doing secret drawings/colorings downstairs and then she would run by me and hide them under her bed. She told me she was making me a surprise present for Easter. I figured she'd forget about them come Easter but she didn't. After they got their Easter baskets and did the egg hunt she excused herself to go and get my present. She came back in with 8 pieces of printer paper that were taped together like a quilt, each with a different drawing that she had worked on at different times. She had carefully taped them and made each paper different. It was so sweet and I just couldn't believe that she had been secretly working on this for about 2 or 3 weeks, a little at a time. What thoughtfulness. I need to take a picture of it and post it here now since I told you all about it~!
