7 quick takes Vol 2

My 7 quick takes is soooo late for last Friday, but so early for this week. From now on my 7 quick takes will be posted during random days!

1. Bible stories - we have read Bible stories to Daniel before but now that he is a toddler, he usually chooses his books to read at night. He has not really picked up his Children's Bible in awhile. So while I was on the computer the other day and he on my lap, I searched for a video of "David and Goliath". I really tried to make it interesting but I think he got scared. He wanted to be Buzz Light year instead of David.

2. I have been back at work for 2 weeks now! hence the untimely posting of my 2nd volume of 7 quick takes.
3. Isabel's first week at the day nursery was rough. She did not take the bottle for 8 hours. 2nd week - 1/2 oz to 1 oz per day. This week, she is finally taking 2-3 oz per feeding! yay! She still gives her dad grief and stress during on-call nights though. She refuses bottlefeeding and waits for me for 12 hours. Pray that she will turn around.

All bundled up to be dropped off to Day care

Ice cream during winter!
4. Derrick and I had our date night for V-day at Canal Bistro (our favorite Mediterranean restaurant) and BRICS (ice cream shop in our neighborhood).  Thanks to lolo and lola for babysitting!

5. another picture I am sharing taken (not by an iPhone cam but ..... drum roll please..... Derrick's 5 (?) year old slide phone!) Gotta place this beautiful smile here! Daniel is 2 years and 7 months last Monday. To celebrate, we went to BRICS...... I should have gotten a foursquare badge: snowqueen or something... 2 check-ins at BRICS in a week!

6. 40 days for life during Lent. Pray for respect for life and to end abortion.  This little one I am holding is the image and likeness of our Lord.

Isabel and mummy -- pro-life!

7. It's LENT! I am giving up:

-----> ice cream. I love ice cream. It does not matter if it's winter (as evident from our BRICS trip last week).
-----> cookies.Bye-bye to my favorite thin mint Girl scout cookies.

How about you? what are you giving up this lent? what are you doing more of?

It does not matter if you give up your favorite food or a habit; or do more of something.... as long as you'll take these 40 days to get closer to the Lord and aspire to do His will. That's my goal these next 40 days. I want to hear (and listen to) His voice and follow His will in my daily life.
