First of all, lots of comments about Livi’s ears and fears. I hope I didn’t come across as insensitive to her. I know her fears are very real, and I’m praying that she will feel God’s comfort and that I can convey to her that His perfect love drives out fear. Until she grasps that, I reassure her many times a day that Mommy will never, ever, ever leave her. She is so sweet and tender, and my heart aches with love for her (and her little sisters).
Secondly, I had my first radio interview for Blushing Bride yesterday. WWJC out of Duluth, Minnesota. I was so nervous and wanted to cancel it, but as a result of much prayer, it went really, really well. It was live, and I sat on my bed while I talked. You can listen to it online if you’re so inclined at www.wwjc.com
Just click on the Northland Notebook archives for Friday, April 21st. I was the last interview of the hour, so you’ll have to fast forward to hear it.
Thirdly, I have another interview on May 16th, with a secular AM talk radio station out of Seattle, WA. (This is the cool opportunity I was talking about.) They have a daily 1-hour “spiritual” program with Christian hosts, so I get to share the message of my book with non-believers. Please pray that God will be glorified!
Last, and least, I promised the monitor story. So, a couple nights ago, I flip on the baby monitor and crawl into bed at 1am, dead tired. Thankfully, Nina doesn’t make a peep until 4 or 5 or so. And then I hear her peep. Literally. It sounded like a baby chick.
I jumped out of bed to see if she gagging or something. Nope. She looked perfectly peaceful. Back to bed.
Chirp chirp. Eek eek. Okay, so now she sounds like a chicken and a mouse.
Back to her room. Nothing. Back to our room. Now she starts crying–a very weird cry. Run to her room. It’s not her. It must be Livi or Ava? But, no. They’re fine.
Go back to Nina’s room. Hear crying coming from our room. Run back and forth between rooms. Someone is crying on our baby monitor, and it is none of our babies.
Then I hear, “Should we take him to the doctor?” HUH?! Then, OH! Our neighbors across the street have a 7-month-old son. I check Nina’s monitor. Channel A. I check our monitor. Channel D. Hmmm… Switch to channel A. I hear…breathe in, breathe out, breathe in… My baby. Go figure.
Gabe says, “We could listen to them some more.” He’s kidding. I think. Heather, if you read this, I promise we haven’t eavesdropped since!
You all said you like long blogs… 🙂
