Sit Up and Pay Attention
Anne is growing up really fast. In the last few days she learned how to sit up unassisted. It’s an amazing sight - her sitting on this huge expanse of a bed, looking so intently before deciding which toy to reach for and pick up. She also discovered that hitting her rattle hard on the ground makes a much louder sound than simply shaking it. Parts of her legs are often unintentional striking points, but she doesn’t seem to mind.
Yesterday, I came out of the shower to see her smiling at me. I cracked a few jokes and she laughed. I’m going to exercise a little more faith and say that she understood (rather than she seemed to understand) what I was saying, and her laughter reaffirms what I always knew: that I should work on my material and be a stand-up comedian down at the bar where they allow bartop dancing. To heck with this web / information design nonsense.
Thank you for your many offers of clothing and stationery (gonna spell it wright this time). For those of you who asked,
- Adult-sized clothes are ok. They don’t have to be kid’s size.
- The stationary they need are pencils, scissors, mostly art and craft stuff.
- We plan to head up to Myanmar at the end of November, but there’s an advanced party who can take a load of supplies up, and they’re leaving mid-October.
Most of all, I think we need your prayers. Things aren’t shaping up the way we hoped, with obstacles preventing many of us from going.
His will be done.
