Silas James is doing wonderful, he is having to have a Swallow Study done. He seemed to be choking more than normal, so the Doctor put him on thickened formula until they find out what is going on in case he is aspirating. I think his test is the 9th of December. Other than that he is wonderful and so is momma. This is a new experience for her. She never had to deal with bottles, spit-ups, burp rags or for that matter burping. It is easy to burp tube fed babies. Big Sister and Brother thinks he is wonderful too. I have a feeling he is going to be one spoiled little boy. Here is a picture of my little hunters.
And a better one of Silas.
Nothing like those grandbabies...
I ran across something that I would like to share with all of you. You may have read it before, but it is worth repeating. I did not write this, I am not sure who did. If anyone knows please let me know and I will gladly give them credit for it.
Who Started Christmas?
A woman was out Christmas shopping with her two children. After many hours of looking at row after row of toys and everything else imaginable, and after hours of hearing both of her children asking for everything they saw on those many shelves, she finally made it to the elevator with her two kids.
She was feeling what so many of us feel during the holiday season this time of year. Overwhelming pressure to go to every party, every housewarming, taste all the holiday food and treats, getting that perfect gift for every single person on our shopping list, making sure we don't forget anyone on our card list, and the pressure of making sure we respond to everyone who sent us a card. Finally the elevator doors opened and there was already a crowd in the elevator car. She pushed her way into the elevator car and dragged her two kids in with her along with all of her bags of stuff. When the doors closed she couldn't take it any longer and stated, "Whoever started this whole Christmas thing should be found, strung up and shot."
From the back of the car everyone heard a quiet calm voice respond,
"Don't worry we already crucified Him."
For the rest of the trip down the elevator was so quiet you could have heard a pin drop.
As we enter the Christmas shopping season, let us remember this year to keep the One who started this "whole Christmas thing" in your every thought, deed, purchase, and word. If we all do this, just think of how different the whole Christmas experience would be.
God bless you and have a Merry Christmas with Christ in it.
until next time...nel
