Update from the last 3+ months

Hello Everyone,

I'm really sorry about not updating the blog over the 3.75 months. An especial apology goes to Mary Pat. You would think I would learn my lesson after you broke both of my legs last time I was delayed in my blogging. Just kidding. Life has been good and busy as always. Peter is cruising and crawling all over the place. Yesterday he took 8 steps for Lisa without her even trying. I imagine he will be walking very soon. Peter is now 15 months and does not seem in a hurry to do anything. His little friend Mei is three months younger than him and is literally running circles around him. It doesn't seem to affect him at all. I guess we all develop at our own pace. He loves saying "uh-oh" and "bye-bye". He will even say "dada" or "daddy" if he wants some more Cheerios, his snack of choice right now. I will try to post some photos now and do better in the months to come.

Hello everyone. I'm so thankful for all of our wonderful friends that take the time to check the blog periodically and comment accordingly, especially our good friend Mary Pat who keeps me in line when I have forgotten to post a new blog entry for awhile. It truly is wonderful to have friends that care about us that much. Thanks to all of you. Mary Pat, I really tried to get some pictures on the blog last week, but blogspot.com has been having some issues downloading more than one picture at a time, hence the 5 different posts for the 5 pictures of our trip to France.

Peter is doing great and is 11 months now. He seems very healthy and traveled better than we could have expected. He is very patient and does not seem to be bothered by jet lag at all. We are convinced that he does better traveling than we do! Hopefully this will continue as he gets older and becomes more mobile. Right now he is teething like crazy. His first tooth popped out while we were on vacation and then another came soon after. Today we noticed that two more can be felt on the top to match. Dr. Sears' book states that this is normal, but we still get excited about silly little things like that.

We are very thankful for our trip to France and are glad that we could be a part, albeit a small one, of what God is doing in that part of the world and beyond. We would love to tell each of you more about it if you get a chance to call us. Thanks for all your prayers as were traveled. The Lord definitely showed many travel mercies to us, even if I did get pick-pocketed by a couple of gypsy women. Live and learn. Man, these guys are real professionals; I never felt a thing. We learned later from a friend that they often target people with small children on the subways since the parents are often distracted.
