Someone is 3 months!

I can't believe Zoey has been a part of our family for three whole months!  The time is just whizzing by.  She's so fun and brings many smiles and laughs into our home.  This month she's learned to play with various sounds and "talk" to you with cooes and "grr".  She's able to entertain herself for a good amount of time.  She's been taking super short naps {power naps ... annoying because I can't get much done during that time}.  She's just starting to laugh out loud a's so fun!  Smiles are given every day quite often {they make me melt a bit inside}.  She sleeps 5-7 hours when she first goes to bed {so very nice, if only I would learn to go to bed earlier though}.  That little bald spot that babies have is still quite present on the back of her head.  Rolling over from her tummy to her back happens on occasion {when she feels like doing it} and back to tummy has only happened a few times.  Her neck though is super strong and you barely need to hold her head anymore these days.  She's got those super cute chubby rolls on her legs and even her arms!  We barely see the arms ones though, since we have to wear long sleeves now...kinda sad. :)  She's got chunky little hands, too.  Thursday we go to get her first vaccinations {gulp!}.  I'm curious to see how much she weighs now and how long she is.

Here are some snapshots of our sweet bundle of joy.  Enjoy!

NUK Magic Cup

Getting your little one to drink is not an easy task and switching from a bottle to sippy cups and then normal cups can be challenging. NUK has designed a new sippy cup. Finally a sippy cup that doesn't have little parts to wash! Check out what it's made out of:  The cup has three parts. A silicone part (the pink one) and two plastic parts.  Just pop the pink part into the turquoise ring and then screw it on the cup - DONE! Doesn't get much easier than that. And it doesn't matter where your little one puts their mouth, they can drink from it from any side!  It's a perfect fit for little hands. Although the tipping to actually drink is still a bit tricky and needs a little help from bigger hands, but once your little one is bigger this shouldn't be a problem anymore.  They say it's leak proof, which for the most part it is, however after turning over like the picture above, there is a little bit of water, but not much. And when it gets tossed on the floor, then…

Welcoming strangers into my home

For 16 weeks now, we have had a young refugee couple from Syria living with us. They have been married a little over a year and for the majority of that time have been separated from each other, since he made the journey to Austria alone and got everything in order so that she could come legally.
 Let me backtrack a bit and tell you how it all started. As the refugee crisis really started to explode here, facebook was buzzing with articles, videos, pictures, etc. of the situation. I read a lot. I saw a lot. I was moved. I was troubled. But what could I do? I had a three year old and one year old at home.
 ... I could teach some German. But when? ... I could donate clothes and other items that were needed. But that didn't seem like enough. ... I could give money. But I wanted something more tangible. 
I would put my youngest to bed and during those days, she needed lots of TLC in order to get to sleep. I kept thinking about the refugees and how they didn't have a home. I kept hea…


We've been living in our wonderful new house for almost 5 months now! Crazy! At times, it still doesn't feel real and other times, it seems like our apartment life was FOREVER ago.

Our big wish and prayer for our house was that it would be a place where people would...
... feel at home ... ... be pointed to Christ ... ... be encouraged ...  ... feel loved and accepted ...
When I came across a study on Hospitality by She Reads Truth, I knew it was one I wanted to do. Felix and I love inviting people into our home, talking and playing games with them. I love cooking and baking. I was curious what would be shared in the study on Hospitality and so far I have not been disappointed. I may have only done three days so far, but I have already been pushed and given some thoughts to think on ... here are two quotes from it or inspired by the study that I wanted to share:

--- Isn’t that true hospitality? Putting yourself in their place, loving them for who they are, and inviting them into t…
