The Thunder Rolls on Sunshine Mountain

Ugh!!! I do not know why Blogger doesn't have a thing that lets you rotate your photos. It's turned the right way on my camera and as the file on my computer, but Blogger rotates it. Anyway, turn your heads sideways and see how sweet Kam slept for 2 STRAIGHT HOURS for his morning nap today (Wednesday...I know it's posted on Thursday but it's midnight).

Then he woke up and immediately put his fist in his mouth. He is enjoying his hands more and more these days...he doesn't suck on them, he really just licks around on them a lot. So, we had CMT on for most of the morning. I like We like to have music playing, and I am we are in a very country mood this summer. =) So, The Singing Bee was on and they were playing "The Thunder Rolls." My boy was awake and in a great mood, so I started singing it to him. I think he kind of liked it...
Then I started thinking about "The Thunder Rolls" and is that really a good message to be sending to our 12 week old baby? Um, no. How about some "Sunshine Mountain"? I think he liked that one a little better. He started jabbering singing along=)
Our boy loves his surely is a huge lifesaver!!!
Tonight we started VBS. I'm with the 0-2 yr olds (with a helper) and Kaleb has the 1st-3rd graders. It was a lot of fun! They have a lot of the little sit-in bounce-a-roo-type thing? I don't know what they're called. The round things they sit in and it has all sorts of fun stuff attached all around him and he can play with it? That thing. Kamden sat quite content in that for quite a while. So, we will most likely use our Babies R Us gift card for one of those=) You know, to give the swing a break.

That's about all I have for this evening. Stellan is still not in Boston...the doctors are having changing ideas about what to do, so MckMama is asking that we pray for wisdom on everyone's part to do what is best for Sweet Stellan. He's been very toxic because of the drugs, but he's been peeing it out quite a bit today, so he's not as swollen.

Now I think I'll go to bed. Oh, Kam made it til 4 a.m. before he woke up. 5 hours. I'll take it. Did he go down awake tonight? Well, he was realllllllly fussy and wouldn't calm down, so I thought he was hungry and started nursing him. He was out in under 5 minutes, the little turkey!! Guess I learned my lesson.

Kamden has to be THE sweetest, the most beautiful, the happiest baby around!! :) LOVE the pictures!!!! Gotta agree with you on the "Thunder Rolls" thing. When I first read it, I thought, "What is she THINKIN'????" :) I could have told you...those old classics are the best songs! :) If he gets tired of "Sunshine Mountain," give "Animal Fair" a try. :) His sister LOVES it! :) I can hardly wait to get my hands on that sweet baby!!! Just a few more days!! :) And I'm continuing to pray for little Stellan. I can only imagine how his family must feel. :(
