and the blessings come down

Just a few minutes to post, but I'd like to share some blessings...

God recently provided a substantial sum to help with our roof project. We hope to start this project before the snow flies...we are praying that God would provide the rest of the money needed so that we can begin this soon (our specific prayer request is that the rest of the money would be here in the next week or so). Praise the Lord for His provision!

Aaron has had the following nighttime sleep pattern:
Thursday: 6 hours
Friday: 7 hours
Saturday: 7 hours
Sunday: 8 hours
Monday: 8 hours
Tuesday: 7 hours
Needless to say, we greatly GREATLY rejoice.

And for those of you following the development of Young Muth, another rolling over incident has occurred, this time when Michael changed him. He has also rolled himself over in his sleep. We are in Trouble. (notice the capital T)

We are praising the Lord for His wonderful blessings and rejoicing in His All-The-Time Goodness!

This weekend we are looking forward to a visit from Tim, Sarah Dawn, and Rennah St. Clair! We're planning to cook out with mom & dad Forbes sometime as well. Have a great Labor Day Weekend!!

Hi Jenny!!! Not sure if you will remember me from college, but I remember you and have been enjoying your blog for a little while now. Sorry I haven't left any comments, but I thought you had to have your own blog in order to leave one. Well, now I do so I guess I'm safe now either way (janellemiller.blogspot.com). Your little Aaron is just adorable! We have an Aaron too and seeing yours that tiny reminds me of a time not so long ago. Anyway, what a HUGE blessing that he's sleeping 7 and 8 hours a night!!!!! I can remember how much I was thanking the Lord when mine started doing that which wasn't until about 3 months. So that is definitely something to praise the Lord about. Keep lovin' your sweet little angel!!!

Glad to know there's another mother out there that sings the music man trouble in river city song . . .

GREAT NEWS about the night-time sleeping! This kid seems older than he really is in many respects, eh? Let's pray he keeps up the good sleeping habits.

PTL for His provision! Have a grand time visiting with your pals this weekend.

Praise the Lord again for His provision, you guys! We are praying specifically with you concerning funds for the roof. Unbelievable about Aaron rolling over again. You gotta see what Dr. J. thinks of that one. Wow! I am so glad you are sleeping again. Yeah! Have fun with your friends this weekend, introducing the newest Muth.

That's wonderful about Aaron's sleeping patterns! Hope he keeps it up.
It's so neat seeing God's blessings overflow on these posts!

Glad to hear Aaron is learning to sleep longer. Audrey's record is 7 hours and unfortunately last nights longest stretch was from 6 this morning till 11. Oh well, we will be missing this stage before long. I have to say I'm ok with Audrey not rolling over yet, sounds like he is going to keep you on your toes!!

Do Do Do Dooooooooooooo!! Sounds the trumpets the little cherub sleeps!!

Sarah from S.C, said...

Jenny! I can not believe how he is rolling over! Amazing! Isn't is wonderful having a baby sleep through the night so early? Jonas has been doing the same. I sure feel better in the morning!
What a blessing about your roof! Andrea has been sharing with me the many blessings you have had with your new home.
