Sunday Equals Playday

The past week the McShans were here visiting and left today. I, of course, slacked on taking pictures and literally did not take a single picture of them while they were here. I stay so busy whether it be with babies or housework that taking pictures hardly crosses my mind. That is, until after events are over and I am kicking myself once I realize it. 

We had fully planned on going to church this morning. It would have been the first time we would have gone to the morning service. Last week, we were able to make it to a Sunday night service for the first time. Our church, Fellowship Memphis, used to have a Sunday night but recently stopped. So we went to Bellevue last Sunday night. There is just something about being in community with other believers, worshipping corporately... We have missed it. But James and Mattie Rose had a rough night/morning and our plans went out the window. 

I did however manage to make it to lunch to see a sweet, sweet friend of mine. Jackie and I have been friends since high school. We were in church youth group together and also coached CYAA cheerleading for several years. A year and a half ago, Jackie gave birth to beautiful Lynnlee. However, Jackie was only around 24 weeks pregnant when Lynnlee made her grand debut into this world. Jackie was told at around 18 weeks of pregnancy that Lynnlee had 0% chance of survival due to lack of amniotic fluid. If you know Jackie and her husband Josh, this was not an acceptable answer to them knowing how powerful and miraculous our God is!!! Here they are, a year and a half later with a beautiful happy little girl! Who apparently loves babies as we found out today. Jackie met Mattie Rose and I at Swanky's for lunch and afterward we made a little house call to see Lynnlee. And boy is she cute!!! She was so happy the whole time we were there, wanting to play with Mattie Rose and tickle her feet. She was able to show us where her eyes, ears, nose, and hair were, blow us kisses, show us her big muscles, and sign several words. I just wanted to eat her up!

Once we got home from playing with Jackie and Lynnlee, Alicia, Patrick, and Declan came over for a quick visit. Alicia has started her residency and her free time is minimal now, so it was super special to get to see them today. And this face below just makes all the worries in the world go away...

And so begins a new week...
