Mr. Penguin

I have recently discovered that Allie has a very naughty imaginary friend named Mr. Penguin. He explains why she wakes up scared and why she sometimes refuses to take a nap in hysteria. Apparently, he only comes when she sleeps and he says nananananana which for some reason scares her to death. Well, she told me that he came out of the sky where God lives. So, she and I had a nice long conversation about how only wonderful loving beings live with God and that they are there to protect Allie. God would never ever ever send anything to scare her. So, I printed out a picture of a gaurdian Angel standing over two small children who I named Allie and Joshua. I told her how beautiful and happy heaven is. We then prayed about Mr. Penguin and asked God to take him away. Well, the next day Allie told me that Mr. Penguin wasn't coming back anymore. We talked a little bit more about heaven and she simply said, "I want to live where God lives." O Allie, don't we all. It is such a thrilling thought that in what will seem like a blink of any eye will turn into eternity and yes, Allie will be there with me along with everyone else that I have ever loved! How awesome is that!

Joshua man is now rolling over both ways!!! He is such a big boy. I must confess that I was trying to give him away the other day because he has decided once again to try to see to it that I have to get up several times through the night while the rest of the world is in la la land. But, all in all I love that little man so terribly much and cannot wait to see his little personality unfold more and more. If he is anything like Allie, I am in for a huge treat!

It is delightful to share Joshua's delight when he realizes his world from a new angle...upside down on his back, on his stomach...what an adventure he is beginning ... thankfully, God and Allie's angels are wherever Joshua will go. Sweet children, Little Sister.

The Lord has really blessed you all! Allie is a pure delight on these videos... ya'll are teaching her great things!

As for wanting to give Joshua away... it must be in the name... My Joshua is not sleeping during the day and very cranky so I had thoughts of "Free to good home" signs! LOL
