Life at the Mackey's lately

Life here has been pretty good. Randy is getting ready to go to the field next week for two weeks so that kinda sucks but not that bad. Ender has been doing great. He has slept through the night twice now, but it is not an every night thing. Hoping that starts soon! Julietta has been loving Awana. She loves to tell you her verse for the week and to try to get everyone around her to site it as well. All week she's been going up to people saying "Say, God is Love."
Ender has brightened up the day since he has started to smile. Here is a picture of it:
We are starting to have to let Ender cry it out to take a nap. He generally cries for about 10 minutes and then calms down to sleep. I've been swaddling him at night and that has caused him to sleep more (I think.) He still has a fussy time at night and I end up feeding him every 2 hours at night a lot. Really hoping that it gets better and he'll start going back to 2 1/2 hours. He just doesn't want to sleep in the afternoon.

We are in kind of a crisis right now since our house is still on the market for rent in Fayetteville. Coming this month we are going to have to pay the full mortgage. We obviously do not have the money to do this so we are a little concerned. If you think of it, send up a prayer that it rents out soon or that we can just sell it. I am considering getting a job at night and weekends which would help, but at the same time that will take away from the only time Randy and I have. So I guess on top of it all pray for wisdom in what we should do.

Other than that all is going great here and we are loving having 2 kiddios. Julietta is still doing wonderful with Ender. She loves to try and make him smile.


  1. Again, I love all the personality showing!
    We'll be praying for you. Stress is no good, and house stress is yucky!!

  2. Praying for your house situation! Ender is adorable when he smiles!
