    For a rental, that house is pretty awesome!!

    I can’t believe that Valor is already 8 months old, either! As cliched as this might sound, it doesn’t seem that long ago that I was checking the site every day for a birth announcement 🙂

    Looks like a lovely home, though temporary. Praying right now for some new friends for you as well as a church that’s a good fit. Titus 2 Moms really miss you as I’m sure many others do, too, including me.

    I have been a follower for a while. I guess I just lurk. I am glad the move went smoothly. I too am from Orl. I am currently attending graduate school in PA. I too use a “breathing monitor” for my daughter (she is 2 and I still use it) this is the one I use if you want to look into a new one for Valor. It works GREAT. My daughter is 25lbs so not much bigger than Valor. here is the link:

    Good luck. In your new endeavor.

    Good to see you still have the red chair! The pictures are fantastic — thanks for the tour.

    You can hang quilts up on walls with regular thumb tacks and not worry about the bitty holes. I do it all the time.

    We saw “how to train your dragon” on Saturday with the kids and I was enamored by all the Viking hats. And tried to figure out how to knit the little, cute skulls.

    Too much yarn fumes for me!

    If you want to put things on the walls without damaging them, there’s always the 3M Command stuff: I’ve used it before and it always comes off clean. They have picture strips now, maybe they would hold the quilt? (It might take a few, though.)
    Pulling them off is a weird experience as sometimes the stuff stretches really really far before it shloops off the wall.

    Google is such fun!

    Taberna celebrates New Bern’s history of being a sister city to Bern, Switzerland. The name of “Taberna” literally means “place of hospitality” and was the original name of Bern, Switzerland.


    A taberna (the plural form is tabernae) was a single room shop covered by a barrel vault within great indoor markets of ancient Rome. Each taberna had a window above it to let light into a wooden attic for storage and had a wide doorway.

    Be it owned or rented, may the “house” be your “home” because of the love of Christ within. The tour was great – you’ve done a beautiful decorating job. May the Lord fill the FROG with family & friends! Thanks for sharing the sweet pics and updates of Valor. Ya just gotta love him!

    I can’t believe that Valor is already 8 months!!
    I remember waiting for his arrival! Wow, time really flies…

    The house it’s pretty awesome, and the neighborhood seems a very quiet place.

    Hope everything goes great in the meeting with the pastor.
    We’ll be waiting for more pics!!!

    Your new rental house is so adorable, but I definatle understand the unsettled feeling, especially with a baby. We are keeping the Gjertsens in our prayers. Valor is just so babilicious! You’ll find your new home and church home soon enough. The Lord always places the lonely in families.

    I understand about people acting confused with the name. Our daughter’s name is Sunny and some people act like we are talking crazy talk when we tell them her name! Praying that you find a church home soon.

    I have just, the last 24 hours, read thru James’ blog and this blog from beginning to end (after linking to it from cakewrecks).
    And I just wanted to say that you have really become an inspiration and a source of strength to me.
    It seems almost wrong to be able to ‘live’ thru your last 3 years in just 24 hours. But it has really affected me.
    I am a home schooling mom of 5 ‘physically’ perfect children. It has made me realize what a miracle they all are. Some days I dont know where I will get the strength and wisdom to mother them another day, though I know God will always give me what I need, when I need it.
    But to see what you have gone thru and the pain you have had to endure has really made me look at my life thru different lenses.
    Each day is REALLY a gift (not to sound cliche or sappy) and it is up to me to use to for God’s glory.
    Thank you for sharing James’ story and for continuing to share your life with ‘us’. James was SUCH a beautiful baby and Valor is SUCH a handsome boy. What a blessing =)
