For about that last week, our sweet little boy has been SHRIEKING up a storm. Often. Repeatedly. Unannounced. While running errands yesterday, I overheard (or was told directly) things like the following: "Wow! That is REALLY loud!" and "Oh, my!" and "Yikes! That is a really high pitch" and, don't forgot the little girl who mysteriously appeared to give Alexander a ball each time his voice reached unheard of octaves in an attempt to silence him! Combine that with the GAZILLION non-approving looks I received, and let's just say I felt like racing home...right after purchasing a pair of earplugs, that is. If you all have any parenting experience/advice in regards to this not-so-adorable behavior, PLEASE share.
Until then, if you happen to hear an earth-shattering, ear-piercing scream that makes your knees buckle & your hands sweat...don't be alarmed. Just assume you've come within a 100-mile radius of our little guy and simply cover your ears! :)

As I surrender my emotions/circumstances to Him, I know is it true. I do not have to posses all the answers nor do I have to walk thru this week & my ToDo's perfectly by my own strength. GOD IS ENOUGH. Enough for this moment. Enough for today. Enough for this week. Enough ALWAYS.

Oh...and I would love any insight from experienced parents for how to remove soggy, swimming diapers from a wiggly I-hate-getting-my-diaper-changed toddler without smearing the...ummm...'contents'...all over. Is a scissors the only solution?

This lazy bear was cracking up the zoo visitors. He was 'denied' access to a hammock by another bear already inside so he climbed onto this flat roof section for his nap. He checked the 'hammock availablity' on several occassions but his roommate was not budging!I told Karissa, "We need a picture for Grandma!" & she grinned. LOVE those blue eyes!
A train adventure...Thanks, Jill & Karissa, for spending the day with us. Let's do it AGAIN!
