Micah turns 8 weeks old!

It seems incredible that our little baby is already 8 weeks old! Micah is becoming a social little boy who loves his big brother and sister, often rewarding their attention with big smiles.

Micah is beginning to show a very sweet, tolerant personality ... as long as he isn't tired. He smiles and coos with the kids. He easily entertains himself in his bouncy seat. He is an easy-going little guy. But once he hits the point where he would rather be sleeping, all bets are off.

He doesn't (and never has) just drifted off to sleep when he needs a nap. Instead he calls loudly to the world to help him fall asleep. A little comfort, and some standing and bouncing, and he drifts off to sleep. We are still working on him staying asleep for more than 30 to 40 minutes on his own... including at night.

This little boy just loves to sleep in mommy's or daddy's arms. It is a good thing I love snuggling! But if you think of us, pray for wisdom, strength and patience.

On another topic, this Friday is Darren's deadline for turning in his thesis! He is continuing to work crazy hours to finish in time for printing and binding before handing it over to the registrar. Once the thesis is in hand, the University will contact his proposed examiners to set a viva date for the oral defense of his thesis.

It is hard to believe that it was three years ago today that we boarded a plane headed for Aberdeen, Scotland. How quickly time has passed! We have loved our time here and made life-long friends. In just a few short months we will move back to the US for whatever God has planned next. But we will always have a soft spot for Scotland!
