My Two Goons

They sure have fun together!  No one can quite make Ida smile like Asa.

The Whole Church Fam

Little Buds

Asa's taken over the responsibility of watering the porch flowers.  He takes it very seriously.
Ida's extremely fond of Amara's old swing and giraffe animal.

Who's who?

I'm finally getting around to some comparison pictures of the kiddos! Can you tell who's who?

Well this one's really obvious-  but I hardly have any pictures of Ida without a bow.  Poor Asa had the baby acne bad at 2 months.

Ida Meets Opa and Oma

While we were in Michigan Ida got to meet her Oma and Opa (Vicki's parents, Ida's great grandparents). Ida is named after Opa's mother, Ida Dekker. It was a quick trip so we need to get back soon!

A Taste of Michigan

I'm going through our pile of pictures - but here's Mike out on the paddleboard! The lake was perfectly calm that evening.

Ida 3 Months

Ida Mae is 3 months today! She's chunking up with a double chin and thigh rolls. She's cooing, talking, and smiling like crazy. I'm incredibly grateful that she's now been sleeping consistently through the night for a month! Asa loves helping out by throwing out diapers, alerting us the moment she starts crying, getting her burp rags to wipe her mouth, and covering her with blankets.
Can't imagine life without this darling girl!

"I cookin like Bobby!"

This funny kid loves Bobby Flay! He's the only Food Network star that he'll actually sit and watch from start to finish. He even postponed his breakfast to finish watching him!
Mike grills a lot and Asa observed this morning that, "Bobby's grillin like Dada!"
When I asked him what he was doing he told me he was cooking like Bobby.

New Lens!

Mike and I had been discussing getting a new lens recently to improve our camera. Well the other day Dad C decided to get a new camera (the Nikon D7000!!! ) and as a result we inherited his wide angle lens!! I started playing around with it yesterday and we're already loving the improvement. Perfect timing - a really fun blessing! Thanks Dad!
