We’re a Team!

Share Button

Around lunch time today, I said to the kids, “Who’s ready for something good to eat for lunch?” Seth honed in on the word eat and immediately started signing. Ella, on the other hand, commented that she was absolutely NOT hungry and we should play a little while longer. A minute or so passed and I asked again, “Is anyone hungry or what? Let’s go make some lunch!” To which she then replied:
“MOM! I told you that I’m not hungry yet. We’re a TEAM! We either do things together or we don’t do them at all!”
Then I explained to her the function of the Team Captain….

She's all for teams as long as she's in charge

Seth loves Poppa

We celebrated our nephew’s first birthday in Tyler.  We enjoyed seeing Great Granny, who was able to visit from Arlington.  The first one is of my dad and Seth.  The next is of my dad’s mom and Seth.

This is how our daughter whistles.  We think it’s pretty funny.

We just found out for sure today that Seth can't hear out of his left ear.
 It is most likely something that he was born with.  Apparently, the newborn
screen for hearing doesn’t always catch hearing loss in one ear.  He had passed
that screen, but recently he had been failing hearing tests.  We thought it may
have been related to the ear infections he struggled with recently, but the ENT believes
the high degree of hearing loss was not consistent with the hearing loss that would result from a bad ear infection.  Thankfully, we know he has very good
hearing in his right ear, according to a more accurate and rigorous test.  

So,
now our job is to protect his right ear from any future damage and carefully
choose his seat when he goes anywhere. 🙂  Please p
ray that God would
restore Seth’s hearing in his left hear, if that be His will.  Whether He
chooses to do that or not, pray that Seth’s hearing results in an understanding
and love of the gospel and a life that brings Jesus
glory!

Romans 10:17 (English Standard Version)

17So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ.

We love these moments.  It’s not like this all the time.  Ask Emily!

This is a little sample of what Seth is doing to get closer to walking. He's had longer stretches, but this is the best I have on video.

Video: Ella and Seth celebrate Mom and Dad’s Anniversary

Ella and Emily made the “marry” cake.  I’ve noticed every celebration at our house effectively becomes a party for Ella.  That’s ok because she makes them more exciting.

He’s not allowed to eat M&Ms

Apparently, he procured a few from his big sister.

M&Ms!

We blame Ella
