work work work =]




these pictures are old, but i just love my little man so much and these were taken when he was 7 weeks old =]


wow, i feel like all i get done doing is working! but that's ok because we need the money and the overtime is certainly helpful, especially with christmas coming up and the move...

i was talking to daniel the other night and he wanted to know if i wanted to spend christmas here and new year in illinois or the other way around. i told him i'd really rather spend christmas here but as far as the work schedule is concerned, it looks like we're going to spend christmas in illinois and new year here in west virginia. my mom is going to be upset, and so will my sister and her kids. especially breanne (the oldest) because she asks me ALL through the year 'emma are you going to spend the night on christmas?' for the past few years, i've went over there and spent the night on christmas eve. =[ i just hope she's not too upset because i am going to spend the new year and do the presents that day.

daniel also told me he wanted to move and wanted to know if i wanted december to be the last month i'm in the apartment. NO, i want to stay at least a few more months, but i know he is dying to go back home to illinois. and i love him so much and only want to see him happy, so i'm willing to negotiate with him.
i'm also going to find a church to go to there. that's really important to me, and i'm not sure that daniel fully understands my stance on this. i would love NOTHING more than if he shared my love and conviction for God. i'm hoping he'll realize just how important this really is and i'm NOT going through a phase. he's not sure how to take it, and i don't know that anything will sway him from the way he feels. i've been praying about it like crazy.

so, we'll see what's going on with that.
i've been spending a LOT of time reading this blog. it's a couple who have a preemie baby and it has been a day by day journey thru her life. it really makes me realize just how lucky i am. these people are struggling so much with their beautiful preemie baby, kayleigh.
see, my baby danny was a preemie. no where near preemie like kayleigh, he was only almost 5 weeks early, and i was SOOOO lucky because he was absolutely PERFECT. and is growing like a weed! they say that preemies grow, say if they're 2 months early, they'll be two months behind a "normal" baby that was born full term. but danny is, i think, normal for his size.

so i think that's all for today.. i'll try to post more tomorrow. the awesome thing is that i can post at work YAY

Beautiful pictures! Finding a church to go to is huge. I am still trying to find one in the twin cities that feels like home.
