memory verses

Mariah and I are in the process of memorizing the book of Philippians. This has been a fun time for us as we recite to each other the verses we have learned. The other day as I stumbled through last weeks verses, it reminded me of one of my favorite episodes from The Andy Griffith Show.

Big Boy!

Well after months of waiting and trying to get Rivers to walk he finally is! He started taking a few steps at a time a little before Christmas and is steadily walking more every day. He just likes to do it his own way, on his own time... unless bribed, like you will witness in the video. The sun was streaming through the window so the video isn't great but you can tell that he is walking a good distance. We all like to cheer him on to encourage the walking, and at the end you will hear Maddie calling him a big boy. Listen carefully and you will hear him repeat "big boy". He is also using more words all the time. Our baby boy is growing up, which is good I guess. We're all making room for a new baby!

We are having another...

GIRL!!!! We found out on Tuesday that the Lord has graciously blessed us with another daughter! We had a really fun time finding out because the kids went with us. Madeline kept saying "I get to have a sister! I get to have a sister!" To Maddie's disappointment, though, the baby's name will not be "Jack-Jack" which has been her name of choice for the baby. Her name will be Gloria Michele Frantz. Gloria, meaning "glory to God", and Michele, after my sweet sister in law. We pray that she will grow to be a godly woman like her Aunt Shelly and her life will give glory to God. We are grateful that Gloria is healthy, and very active! Come May the Frantz house hold will be a busy place! Here are some pics of our sweet girl!
