I haven’t posted in quite a while, so here we go!
Micah is almost 5 months old…crazy! He had a doctor’s apt. this week to get a couple of vaccines (remind me to post about vaccines, what we’re doing and why). While there, the nurse weighed him. He weighs 14.7 lbs. My little man is growing up fast! He rolls over in both directions, plays with his feet and is REALLY close to sitting up by himself.
This past Sunday I discovered kinda by accident just how close he is to sitting up on his own. We got to church late for Sunday School and I needed to nurse Micah, so I fed him then stayed with him in the nursery playing with the other babies until it was time for the service. After he had eaten, I sat on the floor with him on the floor in front of me. I was holding onto his hips so that he had to support and balance his upper body. And he just sat there, sitting up straight and not wobbling around at all. So, I let go, and he just kept sitting there! I had no idea he could do that! He sat for almost a minute unsupported before falling over. I was completely amazed. So, he can sit up for brief periods and is getting better everyday.
Christian is going to Wisconsin on a business trip this week. It will be the longest we have been apart since getting married and the first time we have been apart at all since Micah was born. I’m sure it will be hard, but he is also really excited about the trip. Then, as soon as he gets back, he will begin teaching a math class at our local community college. Also, I am going to be caring for a little boy whom I will refer to as “A,” beginning Friday. He is 6 weeks younger than Micah, so I’m sure I will be VERY busy. So, this week coming up is going to be a lot of firsts and some big changes, but I’m excited to see how God is working in our lives and we are very grateful for the new opportunities He has blessed us with!
On another note, I am venturing into the world of cloth diaper sewing, and so far I have had a lot of fun, but I’m still not sure how well my creations are going to work. I’ll keep you posted!
