I saw God today...

There is a song with the lyrics, "I saw God today," and the guy talks about all the ways in which he saw God, mostly through the birth of his baby. Well, today was one of those days for me. Our car has been dying and we have been looking for a new one. After looking for several days and looking at our finances we came to the conclusion that we really can't afford a very good new car. So we implored God for help.

Fast forward to this morning where for the first time since Ryan's birth I went to the gym. As I am walking out there is a guy working on the junkie car that has been sitting in the same spot since we have moved into our apartment. Well, I introduce myself and ask if he needs a jump. He tells me he is a mechanic, then I explain about our car dying and he offers to fix it later in the day after he is done with work.

Fast forward again, I am feeling a little down today and then my sweet husband comes in the room and gives me a back rub. :)

Fast forward again, Ryan laughs really cute when I tickle him.

Finally, Mr. Car Fix It Man, Oscar, shows up and fixes our car. Mike just bought a new hose and it is as good as new for under $30. (Definitely within our budget!) I give Oscar a brownie, some home grown tomatoes, two CDs on health for his mother who has hypertension and what little cash I have around and call it good.

Well, God really does hear our prayers, He knows us and watches out for us and I am sure glad that I saw God today. :)

Okay, now on with Ryan. He was four months old yesterday. 14 lbs 2 oz. 25 inches long. He's been rolling over very consistently now for about two weeks. Only from his stomach to his back and he sleeps through the night very well. Last night was a glorious 10 hours! Here is his 4-months pictures. Isn't he growing so big!?

Like Father, Like Son.

Alright, so everyone says that Ryan looks like his daddy. So I thought I'd post some pictures of new born baby and then daddy. Here is Ryan still in the hospital.
This one is of Ryan just a few days old at home.

Now here is Michael as a baby.

Isn't he so precious.

Anyway, everyone says Ry looks like his daddy. You be the judge. In any case, I think both are extremely cute!

More of Ry Ry

Here is a happy picture of RyRy. He is getting tickled and he really enjoys that. This is picture is the most recent of the
Here is another picture at the cabin. I didn't get out much with Ry. He really only has about an hour of wakefully where you can really "do" something with him and driving really isn't an option because most of the time he is just mad when he's in his car seat.

Here is cousin John-Luke, who unlike Ry, seems to fall asleep wherever just fine and he does so often.

I did manage to get a picture of him asleep in his car seat. This was after a long while of crying that he finally fell asleep.
