There is a group of people that have a special place in my heart. Homeless people simply tug at my heart. I can't explain it but my heart breaks for them and I long to help them every time I see them on the corner with a sign. My heart aches every time I have to drive by with nothing to give them. When Leo was in the hospital, we saw lots and lots of homeless people on the corners on our way to the hospital. After seeing an idea on pinterest, I realized how easy it would be to help. I put together a few of these:
They are called blessing bags. They contain food, gloves, hats, and other items a homeless person might need. We are blessed enough to have money to spend at target so I picked up what I thought someone who is homeless and hungry might need. I simply put them on the floor in the back of my car until we saw someone that needed them. We were privileged to give them out to a few different people. Their reactions were priceless, I thought one lady might try and kiss Ryan! What a humbling experience to be able to help others and see the pure joy on their face.
Leo is two months old! He is growing like crazy! The doctor said that everything looks good. She did put him on some medicine for reflux which is common in preemies and it seems to be helping. We don't have to go back again until four months as long as we stay healthy!!! Continue to pray for health please :-) Here are his stats from his doctor's appointment on Tuesday:
Weight 7lb 9oz
Height 20.5 inches
He is still in newborn clothes, he fills them out better now though. Leo is also a lot more awake after he eats and can stay awake for up to an hour at a time!
Trying on Mommy's new hats
Bath time and the sweet hair that follows!
Sleeping more than three hours at night :-(
Having his back scratched
Leo, you are a true gift from God. Your dad and I are continually amazed by the ways we can see God's work in your body. We love watching you grow and are excited to see the plans God has for your life.
Hey everyone! It's me, the junior Mr. Miller. Did you know that today is my due date? Crazy huh! My mom and dad were telling me this morning that they cannot believe I have been here for 8 weeks already. They said they were really happy I am here but they wish I would sleep more at night. I personally think they are wimps and I will sleep when I want to sleep, they need to get on my schedule. I went to the doctor today and they gave me four shots! They agree that I am a big boy and doing great. My mom will share my stats later this week in my two month post.
The weather here was awesome today and I took my mom for our very first walk. My cousin Mollie was kind enough to leave some crumbs in my stroller for me but my meanie mom wouldn't let me have any of them. Next time I guess. . .
Well I better go, I need to let my mom know that I demand to be held after those nasty shots today. . . Ouch!
P.S. I know I look bald in these pictures. . . Don't worry, I still have my red hair :-)
