As you come to him, the living Stone--rejected by men but chosen by God and precious to him--you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. 1 Peter 2: 4-5

Sunday, August 15, 2010 last!

On Daryl's side of the family we have lots of cousins. So many, in fact, that Hannah has a hard time keeping up with the little ones, and Josh still doesn't know who is who with the big kids. On my side of the family, however, there were none. Until 2 weeks ago, when my sister Kathleen and brother in law Jason welcomed twins Clare and Cole! This weekend, the girls and I drove up to Chattanooga for a quick visit.

Introducing Coleman Wohlers. Cole for short. Named for my father's family.

And Clare, named for a county in Ireland that Kath and Jason loved when they went there on their honeymoon.
Charlotte didn't really pay much attention to the babies, but loved all the baby stuff, and their cats and dogs. She didn't love the tables, under which she kept walking, sitting down, then standing up and hitting her head!

So hard for me to believe she is a mommy!

Clare "talks" to Maddy

Char char, after giving Kath and Jason a break from the chaos that is us, and an afternoon nap and swimming. She is showing us what a big girl she is with her sippy cup!

Look mom....this isn't that hard!

Hannah paid little attention to the babies, but loved playing with Grandma on the computer. She loved swimming in the pool, too, and just the whole hotel experience. Her favorite thing to do, by far, though, was this!

The next morning, we enjoyed the continental breakfast with Grandma and Grandpa before heading out. Charlotte had been up eeearrrrlly, so I was just sure that she would go to sleep as soon as she got in the car. I was just so wrong! She fussed and fussed and fussed. Threw her bottle, her sippy cup, and anything she could put her chubby little hands on. Finally, I pulled over, dug her blanket from her bed and her glow-worm seahorse. As soon as I covered her up and turned on her seahorse, her eyes got heavy and within a minute, she was fast asleep. That is one routine I have been able to keep throughout her whole life, and I am so glad I did, if for no other reason than this!
