9 Months!

Today Evelyn is nine months old! Kyle and I continue to be SO thankful to the Lord for our little girl. She is so much fun! Ev is getting closer to being able to crawl everyday. She has mastered getting into the crawling position, she just hasn't figured out how to coordinate the movement between her arms and legs. It's hard work! Evie is really just a very laid back, well tempered child. She is happy as long as she is spending time with her Mama and Daddy. Oh I almost forgot! She said Mamamamama the other day :) Evelyn was napping in her crib and she woke up and I heard "Ma ma ma ma ma ma" from the other room. It could have been a fluke, but I would like to believe that she was calling for me :)

* Kyle just got hired today by Reformation Heritage Books! We are so excited about this job! It is full time starting this summer. Kyle will be working in the bookstore, which is in the same building as the seminary. He will still be able to take classes part time in the fall. I think that he will LOVE this job. We are so thankful to the Lord for his provision and faithfulness to our family! Yay :)

* This week Kyle is taking a modular course with Dr. Sinclair Ferguson and Dr. David Murray on the Westminster Standards.

* Next Friday we are leaving for Minnesota to go to my sisters' (Ruth and Rebekah) graduation party. We are looking forward to the opportunity to visit family and friends.

* Evelyn is in pretty rough shape these days. She has been sick (for the first time) since Sunday afternoon. Some of it may be teething, but I've thought she has been teething for awhile now so who knows what is going on with those teeth. It's hard seeing our baby in pain but she is generally a good sport about it (as long as Mom is constantly holding her). Hopefully she starts to feel better soon!

* Thank you to everyone who has been praying for and supporting us through this uncertain time of unemployment and adjustment to a new place. We love you all very much!

Happy Mother's Day!

Evie loves her "lambie" from Grandpa and Grandma Borg

Focaccia Bread

For the last couple of weeks I have been experimenting with different ways to make focaccia bread. At last I think I have it perfected! I am in charge of making around 25 of these loaves for my sisters', Ruth and Rebekah, graduation open house which is two weeks from Sunday. It should be fun!

Update Time!

Here's what is going on in the life of the Borg family:

* Kyle finishes up his finals today!! Yay :) I feel like I haven't seen him all week. He seems to feel pretty good about how the semester is ending up. Wow he is already done with his first semester of seminary! I think that he is a little excited to catch up on his sleep tomorrow :)

* Evie is doing well! She is getting closer to crawling however I still think it will be awhile. Sometimes she will rock back and forth on her hands and knees. She often gets herself in really awkward positions when she is trying to get a toy that is just out of her reach. I took Evelyn to get her 9 month pictures taken yesterday; they turned out pretty cute! Although Evie's newly developed stranger anxiety prevented her from being super smiley with the photographer.

* Not too much new with me. I'm enjoying my time being at home with Evie and I am very thankful for the opportunity to do so. I can't imagine anything else that I would rather do than be a homemaker/wife/mother. It's great! The weather has been nice for the most part, so Ev and I have been getting out for a walk on most days.

* Kyle still has not found a job so we are still thinking and praying about our plans for the summer. We appreciate your continued prayers!
