I learned two new things about my children last night.
     1. Noah is a natural at the drums
     2. Amelia hates them

Our neighbors ROCK, literally.

Last night Rusty (our rockin' neighbor)
let Noah ‘play’ his drum set.
He loved it. Amelia didn’t.
I guess she could have been grooving along to the music…
but it felt a bit more like leaps to me. ;)

I am constantly amazed by my children.
They are so full of life and fearless.
They praise the Lord so simply and honestly
with their joy and music!
I think I remember that feeling…

The doctors have told us that Amelia cannot hear,
cannot feel (the way we do), and cannot see.
I guess they have never heard my son play the drums.

Amelia, my perfect daughter, has heard him play the drums,
and I couldn’t be any prouder of my babies.

They asked Jesus, “Do you hear what these children are saying?”
“Yes,” Jesus replied. “Haven’t you ever read the Scriptures? For they say, ‘You have taught children and infants to give you praise.’” Matthew 21:16

At that time Jesus said, "I praise you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and learned, and revealed them to little children. Yes, Father, for this was your good pleasure. "All things have been committed to me by my Father. No one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and those to whom the Son chooses to reveal him. "Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light." Matthew 11:25-30

The drs certainly don't know much about anen. They just go by what textbooks tell them. I believe that our babies can see, hear, and so many other things. Perhaps some can't, but not all.

I agree with what Holly said. All our doctors have to go on is textbook. And Dr's don't know everything.

You do have amazing children! I love that Noah plays the drums and its so cute that Amelia is not fond of them :)

love and prayers
