But from everlasting to everlasting the LORD's love is with those who fear him and his righteousness with their children's children . . . Psalm 103:17

We're all sitting pretty now!

ALL the kids are now sitting, some better than others. :) Seth is still the most wobbly, although he corrects for backward tipping better than some of the other kids. He continues to roll like a champ and won't stay in tummy time even on a Boppy - he just pushes himself up over it! He thinks he's big stuff and loves to let us know with incessant babbling of varying volumes and intonations. It's SO cute! Will and David are really babbling now, too, and Will does his funny tongue trill when he's frustrated. He'll never have a problem rolling his r's in Spanish class!

By the way, Will weighs over 19 pounds - can you believe it?! And Seth is 17.5 lb. Gracie is 14.5, still the smallest. She loves to laugh with delight at life, and Marcie loves to engage EVERYONE with her gigantic grin and attention-grabbing whimper.

David is just crazy, in a really good way. He's like a roly-poly all over EVERYTHING, EVERYWHERE, vocalizing the whole time with a whole range of goofy sounds. He's already cruising along furniture in a standing position and is crawling even though he doesn't realize it. He'll take a crawl forward, then crumple onto the floor in frustration because he didn't go as far as he apparently thought he should.

We've started officially leaving the oxygen off of Seth for a few hours a day and he's doing brilliantly, praise God!

We here at home are doing great even with Gavin gone, thanks to your prayers and God's provision of the help we need each day.

Today, Gavin got to be at the Jersey Shore for its grand re-opening following the devastation of Super Storm Sandy. He also (more importantly to us) got to visit with our family in Christ at Mountain Ridge Bible Chapel!

Very late; signing off.

Love,
Carrie

Thanks for these adorable clothes, Shauna! I love the rosebuds and frills on the girls' outfits. 
David looks like he's saying, "And furthermore . . . " during some pompous speech
