Fisher is 8 Months!

Here's what's been going on during his 8th month:
  • He is a speedy little crawler now. That kid can book it! He travels from the living room to his bedroom quite often.
  • He is pulling up! He's really embraced this new move. He's up in the crib all the time and constantly pulling up on the sofa. 
  • He just finally mastered pushing himself up into the sitting position!
  • He still goes down around 7:15pm, but he's now started waking up a bit earlier (around 6:30am) which this momma doesn't love. 
  • He's still eating fruits and veggies and now we've started introducing small food bites. He's had banana, grapes and pineapple. We also give him the snack "puffs" which he's done really well with. 
  • He has his two bottom center teeth. So cute. 
  • He is still quite chatty and says "mama" a lot. Yay! Still doesn't really say "dada" much. We're working on it. 
  • He still really likes his walker. He gets a big kick out of us pushing him and chasing after the dogs. 
  • We've discovered that he really enjoys sitting and reading with us. It's been a great way to keep him happy when he's a bit fussy. And we of course love the cuddle time. 
  • He's started going to the nursery at the gym this past week. I like getting him used to different people and locations. Overall, he does well with everyone so it makes it pretty easy.

The big activity in his 8th month was obviously Christmas. And boy was that kid spoiled! We spent time his first Christmas in Memphis and then celebrated here in Nashville on the 26th. I'll post again with a ton of holiday pictures, but I'll include a few here as well. 

Here are some pictures from the past month:

Cricut Christmas Gift

Here's a Cricut project I worked on as a Christmas gift for my parents, Momma C and Pops. They added the brown paper to the back of the old window to make it a little more visible on their wall.  

Check out the final result:

The top portion is done with craft paper and modpodge while the bottom "Neil Fisher" portion was done in vinyl. The plan is to add the names of new grandbabies as they come along. The plus of using vinyl is that we can always pull it off and change it up if we need more space. I really like the way it turned out! 

Thanks for the pictures, Pops, and good thinking on the paper, Momma C!

Until next time...

We are Going to Haiti!

Hey All! 

I am so excited to announce that Brent and I are going to serve abroad as a couple! We will be taking our first international mission trip to Haiti in October, the 19th -26th, to serve with Mission Lazarus and our church, Crosspoint Community Church

The cost of both Brent and I to attend this trip is $3,300. Therefore we are now kicking off our fundraising! Please visit our fundraising page at http://www.razoo.com/story/Brent-And-Robin-Kee to read more about our mission and how you can help. Every little bit helps move us closer to loving those in Haiti!

We will get to love on sweet kids like this!

Thank you in advance for helping us go and love. We will keep you updated as we move forward in this journey. 

Robin & Brent 

Acts 20:35 "In everything I did, I showed you that by this kind of hard work we must help the weak, remembering the words the Lord Jesus himself said: ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’ ”

"I’m more convinced than ever that changing the world isn’t really that hard. The equation is simple. Go + Love = World Change" - Pete Wilson, Senior Pastor at Crosspoint Community Church

UPDATE: Less than 12 hours into our fundraising and with only 3 donors (and $25 of our own money) we reached our goal of $3,300! We are so thankful for the extremely generous donor that knocked out $3,150 for us.

We could have never imagined our fundraising going this way. We feel that God used this to make it perfectly clear that Brent and I are meant to serve in Haiti. It is such a wonderful blessing and we can't wait to leave in October. 

We will continue to update everyone on how you can help us along the way. Donations above and beyond our needed amount will help others meet their fundraising goals. We will also be collecting supplies to take with us. As soon as I have more details, I will let you guys know.

God is good!

Until next time...
