Monday at the Beach (our second time since the move)

We went to the beach Monday with the Musselmans and had a marvelous time. Azariah wasn't sure what to think of the big waves washing up on shore and underneath his feet, however, loved getting wet on such a warm day. Joshua held my elbow the whole time we were in the water, as I held Azariah in the ergo. I guess he didn't want to lose us out to sea, as I can tend to be the riskier one. 

"By the word of the Lord the Heavens were made,
and by the breath of His mouth all their host.
He gather s the waters of the sea as a heap;
He puts the deeps in storehouses.

Let all the earth fear the Lord;
let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of Him!
For He spoke, and it came to be;
He commanded and it stood firm."

Psalm 33: 6-9

We're alive

So it's been a bit of a busy month, hence the last posting was made on May 1st. I can hardly believe it's practically June and we'll be leaving in just over three weeks for Fort Collins, CO. We are all alive and doing wonderfully after our brief trip to MN, and our most recent visitors (Scott, Rachel & Moriah Musselman). Azariah has been moving as swiftly as the wind, and sometimes I feel as though my whole day is spent simply trying to prevent any major injuries. And some days he's as dangerous as a blind clown of stilts. He and Moriah had a great time together, as he learned how to dodge her finger from poking his eyes (which she loved to do), and how to get out of a her wresting holds as she attempted pinning him to the ground.  It was quite funny, although sometimes a little frightening for Azariah. Here are some pictures and I hope to post again tomorrow:) Thanks for your patients!

Not walking yet

I hope you've all enjoyed the benefits of the blogging world, especially all you grandparents back in MN. We sure miss you all and cherish the moments you get to spend with Azariah. He sure has been blessed with an abundance of people who love him so much and would do anything for him, it seems, even fly across the country to spend time with him. Well, I've taken a number of more photos, although they don't do much in depicting the mess we've got ourselves into. That's right, things have been pretty messy around here as Azariah learned how to stand up on his own the same day he learned how to crawl. He really has no interest in crawling, only that it is helpful to get him to the places he desires to pull himself up. And the bumps and bruises and tumbles and cries have really only freaked me out, and have not seemed to affect him at all, possibly only have worked to increase his speed and craftiness.
