I think this is hilarious--Caia and Isaac, both at 4 months old. We moved to Costa Rica when Caia was almost 4 months old, Isaac is only a couple of weeks older than that now. Time really does fly by, doesn't it? It's too fast and I feel like I'm missing stuff, like days are slipping through my fingers and I can't get a good grip. I REALLY like the ages my kids are right now and I kinda just wish they would both stay frozen in time, right now. Isaac is just a happy baby, and still only breastfeeding, which makes life pretty easy. He's also sleeping through the night. Caia talks ALL THE TIME and I love to watch her make coffee for her babies 3 or 4 times a day. She's just fun right now, and potty-trained.

We have both friends and family who have kids who look so much alike--whether the kids are the same gender or not. And, clearly, there are families who have kids who look nothing alike! Well, of the 2, I think we have the former. Here are some baby pictures of Caia and Isaac.
Isaac's first day of life

JG pushed and pushed and I finally gave in--we got a car! It really was time, JG is gone a lot more often these days and we were on the verge of 2 kids, but I was resistant. It's not like we live somewhere where folks don't have cars, most everyone we know and everyone we live near has a car, or 2--so we're not living "above" those around us. I don't know, something inside of me always resisted it-I was just worried we were buying out of convenience instead of TRUE necessity. And the reality--it is just a convenience, we don't "need" it to live. However, over my almost 6 years in missions, I have also come to realize that I just need to receive gifts from the Lord as a blessing and make sure my heart remains free from feelings or thoughts of "deserving" as well as consistently laying down my rights. It's not my "right" to have this car just because I've/we've given up things to come here....I don't deserve this car anymore than anyone else. But, the Lord really did move and provided this car for us and I will receive His blessing, His provision.
