He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
- Isaiah 40:29-31

Teeth, The Karate Kid and Chunky Monkey

Whatever could my title of this post mean? Well, a lot has happened in the Czorapinski household over the last week or so. First off, our man Noah lost his first tooth on Wednesday. He came home from school and when he smiled I noticed the tooth was missing. I knew it was really loose but didn't think it was quite there yet. Well, I asked Noah about the tooth and he didn't want to talk about it. We had already talked about it falling out soon and the tooth fairy coming but I think he was still unsure. Our conversation when something like this.

"Oh Noah, your tooth fell out. How exciting. Now the tooth fairy can come."

"Uh, huh."

"When did it fall out."

"In school."

"Did you tell your teacher?"


"Where is your tooth?" As I'm checking his backpack.

"It fell on the floor."

Only my kid...

But, we do have BIG news for Noah. He FINALLY participated in karate. It only took many soccer games and about 5 karate classes before he finally went out and had fun. Thank God!

And for the chunky monkey part of the post. Joshua is an eating machine. He will finish eating a ton of food, get up and tell me he's hungry. I swear he has put on at least 10 pounds in the past week alone. His little belly sticks out and he is so heavy when I pick him up. I hate to guess how much weight he will put on during this month long steroid round. We have ourselves a little stay puff marshmallow man!

I do have pictures of all of these events. The toothless smile, the karate kid and the chunky monkey but since Jeff is clearing off the computers he hasn't let me download them from the camera yet. But they're coming I promise.

I'm so sorry I've been gone for so long. Life has seemed a bit overwhelming lately, but I don't have to tell you about that. Singing to the choir.

Congrats on the first tooth!

BIGGER congrats on the karate kid!

And steroids? *sigh* I hope it goes by quickly for you all.
