Blessings

Well, we're slowly getting into the swing of things with having a newborn in the house. Maleia is a pretty laid back baby, until she wants to eat. :)

We've felt extremely blessed the last 3 weeks with her in our lives though. Because we didn't know if our little one was going to be a boy or a girl, we bought as many neutral sleepers we could find at different mother's markets before she was born. I didn't mind this because we knew we will be able to use these as a base for our future little ones when that day comes (not anytime soon!). We had about 10 or so outfits which I thought was pretty good. Our first Sunday back to church, a friend of ours said they had some clothes from their little girls. Their youngest was born around this time, so all the seasons & sizes would match up perfectly! We got 3 HUGE gift bags filled with clothes all divided up into 0-3 mos, 3-6 mos, & 6-9 mos. Just the 0-3 mos. section completely stuffs Maleia's dresser!! I was so thankful because 2 days later we went through 3 outfits in less than 4 hours thanks to one end or the other. ;) God knew what we needed beforehand.

On the Sunday before Maleia was born, the heater in my car decided to stop working, but then started working half-heartedly. Not good, when the first snowfall came right after she was born! Geoff's been reading up on it, and decided that the problem would have to be fixed by a mechanic. Expecting to pay close to $1000 to have the heater core replaced, we found out that the mechanic could flush out the system and it only cost us a little over $125!! Praise the Lord!
