New Hope For Chocolate Pudding :)

In ST Cale swallowed three (not so delayed) bites of chocolate pudding!!! On June 25th, my post on chocolate pudding, was...well, a very different experience! :) I'm so excited! He did really good! Go Cale! This next week, there will be many more swallowing trials, I'm praying big time for everything to go down, and to go down the right way!

Most of the day, was spent just being lazy. Cale and I got to cuddle for quite a bit, and both of us really conked out for about 15 minutes. My head was on his shoulder, so I woke up to him shrugging, trying to get my attention. I responded with a grumbled "what..." haha! Soooo wonderful! Heehee!

We sat outside and enjoyed a little sun (that was right before the nap) and read some scripture. Lamentations 2:22-23 says "Because of the Lord's great love we are not consumed, for his compassion's never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness." Another version says "They are fresh every morning" I love that! This makes me think about how God is nothing like a slice of stale bread. His goodness and mercy, His compassion and love NEVER fail us and it's fresh every morning for us to receive! After talking to Cale about it, I was thinking about how the reminder of this for him, must me so encouraging like it was to me!

The night ended so happy :) I took Cale to the activity room where there are a couple couches. Instead of leaving him in his wheelchair, I transferred him to the couch so we could cuddle. I had my laptop, turned on some Itunes, and we looked at pictures. Ahh! I love it. I love him. The day was full of Cale laughing at my silliness. When we were looking through pictures, this was one that gave both of us a smile...

We are so fit for each other ;)

For all the moms- we were at a stoplight when we took this!
