It's been a while..

Wow, I am a horrible blogger. Maybe my life is boring.. or I am just too lazy.

Caleb is doing great. I can't believe that he is almost 9 months. He is growing so much right before our eyes. He is at that stage where he wants to crawl, climb and pulling up on everything. It's exciting to see his independence. I'll admit that sometimes I miss the days that he would lay in my arms and sleep. We seem to be running low on sleep the past couple of days.. err... weeks. He is waking up every 45 minutes screaming! I have no idea why. At first I thought he was teething so I gave him Tylenol, then switched to Motrin when that didn't work. He is not sick or anything so I have no idea why he is doing this. My mother- in-law suggested that maybe he is getting too cold at night. So tonight we are going to put a space heater in his room to see if that helps. He is great during the day but nights are horrible. His naps during the day seem to be shorter. Michael and I are both sleep deprived and it's getting to the point where I am useless. Caleb has a doctors appointment next Wednesday so this will definitely be discussed.

Lately our church has been focusing on adoption/foster parenting. It has really tugged on my heart. I find myself in tears during the sermon. I know that this is in our future, but when? I really want to start the process now. I know that sounds crazy but the feeling in my heart is so strong. It is probably because it is what our study is about. Michael wants to wait until we have our next child and when they are both old enough to understand what is going on. Then the questions is, do we adopt or become foster parents? I honestly have no idea. I can see the pros and cons from each side but what does God want?

I have been off of work for almost a week. I do not want to go back. I loved staying at home with Caleb. I go back to the grind tomorrow and I am dreading it.

Have a great night!

Hope Caleb starts getting some sleep so you guys can too. I pray for wisdom for you both as you seek out this new avenue of adoption.
