New Look To The Blog!!!!

As you will notice, I have changed the picture on the blog header. I thought that a picture of Lindsey would be appropriate because she is the main thing going on at "Jake and Amy's Place." Yesterday was Lindsey's one month birthday. I can't believe that she is a month old. It seems like just yesterday that we went to the hospital and that Lindsey was born. I have learned so much in the last month and the the Lord has been so good to me. I am thankful for my parents and my husband for being patience with me and my emotions. (I think that Nana and Papa are addicted to Lindsey.) We are glad for Godly grandparents for Lindsey to grow up around. Well, I have babbled on for long enough. I should be able to post our Tennessee trip and some general pictures tomorrow, so stop back by and check in with us. Have a great day!!!

Lindsey's First Trip to Lota-Wata Bible Camp and Happy 4th of July!!!!

Lindsey took her first trip to Lota-Wata Bible Camp. We left on July 2nd after church on Wednesday night. We drove up to the camp with my Mom and Dad. On Thursday we had our staff planning meeting to plan the church calendar for 2009. We played games and had a great steak dinner and enjoyed time with the staff and all their families. On the fourth of July, the church family came to the camp and we had a picnic. Lindsey was a big hit and everyone wanted to hold her and kiss her. She did very well sleeping and being out in the woods. On our way home, we stopped by our friends, The Samples family. Angie is a photographer and she took a few pictures of baby Lindsey. This picture and Bible verse were one of my favorite. You can see all the pictures that Angie took on her Thanks for stopping by and check back for an update about our trip to Tennessee. We had a great time. Have a great day!!!!

Wow!! Two Weeks and Counting!!!

Well, I was not sure what to name this post. I can not believe that it has been two weeks and a day since Lindsey was born. The range of emotions I have felt has been overwhelming. I have come to realize that this is a job bigger than me and that more than ever I need the Lord's help. Over all, Lindsey is going a great job and is a very good baby. We have been working on the nursing thing and are trying to figure it all out. We went to the Doctor yesterday for our two week check-up. The doctor was very pleased. Lindsey has regained her birth weight and has grown to 22 1/4 inches. The doctor seemed very pleased. Her next visit will be for two months and we will be getting our first shots. That should be fun. Lindsey has already spent her first services in the church nursery and did a great job. I am sorry that I do not have any new pictures. They have not been down loaded yet and we have been very busy preparing for our big trip to Tennessee. Well, I'd better go. Thanks for checking in with us and have a great day!!
