We experience God's grace when we see Him go beyond what He has promised, to give us gifts that we could never have created, earned, or deserved. Our children are two of those gifts of grace.

videos -- one for each kid!

I am finally getting some videos posted!

The one of Lucas is just a little bit of his personality - a very happy little guy! His sister is the best one to get him giggling!

This second one is my new favorite video of Meredith, singing a song from church ("Blessed Be the Name of the Lord", or in her case, "Blessed be Your Name of the Lord"). This video is over 2 minutes but it is worth going all the way to the end to get the full drama -- at one point she backs into an almost-whisper, and then she pulls out all the stops again. She finally remembers some additional lyrics toward the end as well, rather than repeating the same little parts over and over again :)

Hope you enjoyed seeing our little treasures :)

a couple of photos

This will just be a quick post, but I wanted to share a couple of photos that we got done at JCPenney. We had the kids dressed in outfits representing their origins -- so Meredith is in a Russian dress, and Lucas is in a "Shands Jacksonville" onesie (the hospital where he was born). I think they turned out SO cute!

Hard to believe Lucas is now 6 months old! He had his checkup yesterday and measured in at about the same size Meredith was when we adopted her after she had just turned 1! He's not large -- she was just small! Lucas is a long lean guy...about 90th percentile for height and 20th percentile for weight. Some might say he takes after Rob :)
