So, here are the Toftness and Kasper families at Thanksgiving time. We're at a record pace of adding 1.5 people to the families on average each year. That's exciting stuff!
This next topic has nothing to do with these pictures, but it has been a very dominating factor in my life lately: waking up in the night with Oliver. He's been sick, so I understand that he's having a rough time sleeping, but I find myself going back to bed -after calming him- and lying there in such abstract positions, waiting, hoping that Oliver won't hear me pull the covers up. It's a very delicate process..one that Andrew doesn't seem to understand. He doesn't usually wake up when Oli does (though lately,a couple times, he miraculously has), instead, what he does on a normal occasion is rustle around and make as much noise as is humanly possible while still snoozing. So here I am, all distorted and disturbed thinking I could possibly wake my baby up by the slightest bump or fumble, and there's Andrew, completely oblivious to life in the middle of the night. I envy him. Though, I must say, those times with my baby in the wee hours are very precious to me, as I rock him back to sleep singing "Jesus Loves Wuv." He's actually turning into quite the little cuddler . What a joy.
So aside from a daddy and boy having head colds, all is well in our home. I pray the same for all.
