Mallory has been praying every night for about a year now that we could live next door to Nana and Papa. It is the sweetest thing I've ever heard! She longs to be close enough that she can walk to their house whenever she wants to. Well, God started moving and working to answer her little prayer. And because of the way we've seen Him move, we've put our house on the market. Now, our prayer is for our house to sell and for one near Nana and Papa to come available all at the same time. Is that possible? YEP!!! I truly believe God is working and in His mighty power, a miracle is going to happen. We're just praying and waiting. I can't wait to see how God works it all out. :-) Who knows... someone reading this right now just might be the answer to Mallory's year-long prayer! How cool would that be?!?!? Anyone felt led to move lately??? :-)
This morning after I dropped Mallory off at school, Jack and I headed to Walmart. Since I only had a few little things on my list and I wasn't in a hurry, I decided to take my time and really look around. Jack was being SO good!!! While wandering through the children's clothes, Jack started counting the clothes racks as we passed them. I quickly listened up because I was stunned at his new ability!!!! He started at one and counted all the way to eleven!!!!! WOW!!! I couldn't believe it!!! He just turned 2 and he's counting to eleven!!!! Would you like to know who taught him to count??? ELMO!!! Yep, there's something to be said for Sesame Street and that sweet little Elmo monster! :-) Both of my kids love videos and tv. I have to admit I'm a big fan of children's programming. Mallory learned SO much from Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and all the Noggin/Nick Jr. shows. And, now Jack is following in her footsteps. His favorite shows are Dora, Wow Wow Wubzy, Kai-Lan, Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, and his Elmo dvd. I've even heard him repeating Spanish and Chinese words when he's watching Dora and Kai-Lan! He's just gifted... that's it! :-) Oh, and just in case you're wondering, I asked him to count for Nana, Papa, and Kristin at lunch and he did it again!!! YEA JACK!!!
