Silver Lining

5:24 PM

You know what they say - to every cloud there is a silver lining. You just have to look for it. Sometimes it's easier to find than others...

As a little update to our water problem, we were able (as far as we know) to pinpoint the problem and fix it. Turns out there was a little hole in our bathroom floor tiles, right at the edge of the tub. Turns out our tub is situated at a teensy angle that lets water collect at the edge and run down right into this little hole. And this little hole fed right into our foyer ceiling. Fortunately, our family is in "possession" of a wonderful carpenter/Mr. Fix It who helped us isolate the problem and fix it! He spent the last week patching our ceiling and cementing up the hole. Kyle installed a "water diverter" at the corner of our shower and we can now take showers without also showering the floor below! Praise the Lord! 

The silver lining of that situation is that our Mr. Fix It is trading services with us - Kyle's gonna design him a website in exchange for the work done. AND we got to replace our foyer light fixture in the process! Yeah! 

 In other news, my midwife stopped by on Sunday and weighed Dorien who now tips the scales at a mighty 11 pounds, 7 ounces! And he was only 3 weeks, 3 days old at the time! Further proof that breast milk is liquid gold. And mine is apparently Fort Knox.....

More pictures of Dorien to follow tomorrow as he is - amazingly - already 4 weeks old tomorrow!
