What my mommy loves about me...five months old

Today we were going to go the park for our church Park Day, but it was cold and rainy...not the greatest weather for a little boy and his Mommy.

So we dressed up in our warms duds and smiled for the camera! Adrian loves to sit up...with help. If he is not sitting, then he wants to stand on his feet!

He loves his voice...he loves to hum, laugh, scream, coo, mimic any and every noise he hears and make sure there is someone there to hear him.

Our growing boy

At our last Dr.'s appointment, the nurse asked me if Adrian was very verbal. I quickly said yes. She asked if I read and sang to him. I mentioned that I was an English teacher before he was born and he listened to me read things like Romeo and Juliet and To Kill a Mockingbird several times a day for weeks!! So you could say, I read to him. I was also in the church choir before he was born, so yes I sang to him often. She said that babies who are read and sung to are often more verbal at a much younger age. Go Mom! Who knew all that reading in the classroom was helping our little boy grow before we even knew him!!!

So this is one of our first videos of Adrian having a conversation with his Daddy.

It's amazing how quickly he learns new things. I just showed Cristian today how he is watching his hand...at just 5 months old, he is learning the idea of perception and depth. It is really amazing! I'll video the laughter and humming sessions soon. Adrian has discovered that he can still make noise with his lips closed and that Mommy is really funny:) So cute!! What a joy he is!!

Adrian Florin's Baptism

The Sacrament of Holy Baptism
Adrian Florin Moza
Covenant child of Cristian and Meredith Moza

On January 6, 2008, Adrian was baptized at our church,
Redeemer Presbyterian.
It is a symbol of how we, as his parents, have dedicated him to the Lord.
We can only pray that we will be the parents that God wants us to be.
Our pastor, Tom Gibbs, baptizes Adrian.

Adrian was talking to our pastor while Tom explains our roles as parents.
At our church, the pastors and elders take the babies
and walk them around the congregation
to show everyone who these babies are.
Take a good look, Tom says, because we as a congregation
have a role in helping these parents raise their children...
to bring them to a saving knowledge of who Christ is.
We are so very thankful for our church family.

We have the privilege of going to church with our pediatrician.
He is an elder at Redeemer. We were so thankful when we knew
that his practice was accepting new patients. I cannot tell you how
reassuring it was during our first Dr.'s visit to have our pediatrician
pray over the life of our son!
You can't see him in this picture, but Dr. Fitch is standing at the pulpit
praying for each of our babies and our roles as parents,
that God would guide and direct us and that we would follow his lead.
