Psalm 78
. . . we will tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the LORD, his power, and the wonders he has done. .
so the next generation would know them . . . and they in turn would tell their children.
Then they would put their trust in God and would not forget his deeds but would keep his commands.

Anticipation

I am really getting excited about our new baby coming. The first year is so precious for me...

Toby in the sling.


Mr. Edwards and Toby, smiling at each other in the mirror.

Lane was a pre-digital camera baby and since our scanner is broken I have to settle for this Easter photo that I had already scanned.

When Sydney and Hope were six months old we went to Florida and visited my parents, who lived there at the time.

Very exciting. Newborns are especially wonderful. When is your due date?

Meredith, Amy is due while I'm visiting at the end of April! I am so full of excited anticipation as well.

Amy, That photo of you with Sydney and Hope is a great one. You literally have your hands full - a comment I get so much with four and I am sure you are getting more and more as your pregnancy is showing and (nosy) people are counting all your kids in the shops... The thing about this comment is that you look so much more relaxed with Toby - of course, the photo was taken in your (?) back yard, not on holidays, so that would make every difference.

We're going to a birthday celebration for twins this afternoon. They are numbers 5 and 6 in their family. Apparently I have to do a mini interview with Margaret (the mother) about the struggles of mothering. The thing is, it won't be too much about the practical struggles, but I will be asking her about the challenges of raising children in the knowledge and love of the LORD. Good questions to ask!

That's also a wonderful photo of Mr Edwards with Toby. Toby and Mr E are both smiling at someone, and with Toby leaning in to his Dad, it just looks very sweet.

I just saw my last post listed in your sidebar. I know I'm not meant to be posting at the moment but I need to replace that one as my latest! My kids are all playing pirates together in the lounge room with the lounges pushed together for their ship, and there are lots of happy sounds coming from the room, so I think I might have time.
"I'll scrub the deck."
"I'll toss you a couple of treasure coins."
"Oh no, I can't swim! I might drown!"
"Don't worry, I'll save you!"
"The hardest thing about walking the plank is that you have to do it alone..."
I like that last one. My kids love being part of a big family, and I am sure yours do as well.

Meredith,
If all goes well, and the LORD wills, the baby will be born by c-section on April 29.

Sharon,
I loved the imaginary ship conversation. It is so typical of what goes on around here!

I'm going to edit the post to note that Toby and Mr. E are smiling at each other--in the mirror! That is Mr. E's big smile for his little ones.

I did have my hands full with two twin girls, but it was one of the most glorious years of my life up to that time. I loved every minute of the first year! I was so thrilled to be a mom, to be a mom of twins, to have little girls, everything just seemed wonderful! Even so, I have no doubt that I was far more relaxed as a mother of an infant when Toby was little. I thought he was my last and I reveled in every minute.
