19 days

In 19 days I will be the mom to a 1 year old little boy!

(and yes he still likes his pacifier) (and if he wants his pacifier until he is two I am okay with that - but two is my limit)
He is so smart! He knows how to use the apps on the phone, he can make the sound of a snake, lion, bear, dog, cow, sheep, dinosaur, and fish lips. He can also make a sad, happy and sassy face on command. He knows some sign language and has such a funny sense of humor. He loves to read books all day long and he is a happy little guy! He is becoming more and more independent each day and I am so proud of him!
Little lilo I love you!

9 months already!!!


I can't believe it has been 6 months since I last blogged. Life seems to be flying by each day. Our little peanut is growing more and more. He says mama, dada and ja (which is short for Jack - our dog or better known as his big brother) :) He loves talking on skype and playing his apps on daddy's phone. We think he will be walking by the end of October - Uh oh! and he steals more and more of our heart each day! It is going to be so fun to see him on his first birthday!

First "Normal" Saturday in Three Months


It seems like when you tell people you are going to have a baby everyone loves to give advice - let them cry it out, pick them up when they cry, you aren't going to get sleep anymore, sleep while the baby sleeps, etc. Your life will never be the same. It sometimes seems like society view of having children is somewhat of a death sentence and that things will never be "normal" again. I figure take what people say with a grain of salt and do what works for you. I think it just depends on how you look at life -- will you look down and see the mud ground or look up and see the stars! I am choosing to look up! So we have hit the new "normal" for our family now. We enjoyed a nice weekend together - we went to the mall, watched a movie, and just laughed together. (Its pretty easy to get a three month old to smile) So here is to new changes in life!

Twelve Weeks Old

I cannot believe he is twelve weeks old today. He is already rolling over from tummy to back, talking on skype, and he has his own facebook page :) He loves hillsong music and sleeps all night long! He has been sleeping all night since March 1st! Here is a picture from his conversation with his grammy this morning! My mom loves to take snapshots while we are talking on skype - it is so cute

When do you feel good about yourself?

I found this blog entry (Click on the title) and was challenged by it!
It doesn't matter about the size of your bank account or clothing size -- no matter what God loves you!
