So Paisley is 3 months old today, Sept 16. We cannot believe it! She is growing like crazy.
Things that she is now doing include:
-rolling from her stomach to her back
-has found her feet and plays with them often
looks for us and follows us with her eyes
still wakes up about 2 times a night to eat still
grabs mommy's hair and hangs on for dear life
has become a little stranger shy, she cries if someone holds her she does not know
waves her arms and kicks her legs if she is really excited
talks and coo's like crazy
loves to observe the other kids in the nursery. I think she is going to be nosy like her momma. lol
This is about it for now! Until next month! She is such a joy! Love yall!

So we are ending our Tribal Missions class tomorrow. What a challenge it was for Jeremy and I to sit through this class. At times we laughed and at times we cried. We learned about Animism and what it looks like to learn their language and culture. We also learned the importance of teaching the bible chronologically to these people who have never heard a word about the Gospel of Christ. I remember one day at the end of class Jeremy and I both were so move that we were both in tears. Our teacher, Ron Lindsey, gave us a challenge to go and tell these people God's word. Animist live in constant fear of the spirits. They believe that these "spirits" are in everything and the spirits are evil and out to get them. This is how Satan in his scheming has lied to these people. They can not enjoy any of God's creation, even the trees, because they think that the trees have spirits in them and want to do them harm. I remember looking out the window that day in class at the trees and thanking God for his creation. I could have just as easily been born an Animist living in fear of God's creation.
Another story that Ron told us was that the tribe that he was in believed that long ago there was a great flood that killed everyone and that the rainbow was a sign that it would happen again. It is so crazy that Satan has completely changed the story. Ron talked about how they "had exchanged the truth of God for a lie" Romans 1:25b, and that the "god of this world had blinded them" 2 Corith 4:4a. Satan is the father of lies and he does it so many times by mixing truth with lies.
On a lighter note, here are some more Paisley Pics. Enjoy!!
We as believers have so much in Christ. We do not have to live in fear because we have the Living God living with in us. We have no idea what we have or we would be sharing it more with the world. There are so many people going to a Christless eternity. We must share Him. He deserves their worship. We have been so challenged and we wanted to share the challenge with you. Love yall
New fun toys!!
She loves swinging!
And she always as her hand in her mouth!
She loves playing with Daddy!
Every night after bath, Jeremy sings to her "Mary Did You Know" because he says she looks like Mary with the towel headdress! LOL He is ridiculous!
Have a nice day!!

So we had a great Labor Day. Jeremy took Paisley and I to breakfast at this little diner we love. We can walk there from our apartment! It was so yummy. Later in the afternoon we went to a great coffee place on the lake front in Milwaukee and then we came home and grilled with friends! It was great spending time together as a family. Hope everyone enjoyed their day off as much as we did.
Paisley's new friend Liam. He was trying to hold her hand! lol She's already a little heart breaker!
Got to love this pretty little face! She enjoyed laying on her blanket playing while we ate!
Daddy and Paisley!!
