Easter 2011

Today was wonderful! We spent the morning at Watermark with some sweet friends and then took a little time outside to get some family pics! Even though Asher isn't looking at the camera, the sheer fact that Caleb is not only looking at the camera, but smiling is amazing! Later tonight, we had our friends from this morning over for a big Easter dinner, which I used as an excuse to roast a turkey and do all the fixins and I would call it a success since I didn't burn the turkey! Honestly, the food and fellowship were so wonderful and I can't wait to get to know our friends even better! Over all, it was a fabulous Easter!

3/4 of our Community Group! Love this picture!
Could this be a glimpse into our future 15 years down the road?!? I wouldn't be surprised!

Thank you Lord for sending your Son to die on the cross so that we can have freedom from our sins and spend eternity with you! May we all respond to that blessed gift, not just today, but EVERYDAY!! Happy Easter!!

Be Blessed and Encouraged!

Playgroup Wednesday - The Fire Station

A few weeks ago, before my hard drive decided to completely die (another post, another time, maybe when I'm not so bitter about it all) a couple moms from my playgroup and I decided to go and visit the local fire station. OH. MY. GOODNESS. I think I just might be the mom of a future fire fighter!! Caleb was in ABSOLUTE heaven!! I learned something new about my son during our short lived trip...he is fearless. Absolutely fearless. Within minutes of being there, all he wanted was to get inside the truck and see (and touch) everything in sight. He examined, and "asked questions", meaning, he opened his mouth and sound came out, but I have no clue what he was actually saying! And the fire fighters that were there were SOOOOOO wonderful and patient with all the little 2 year olds running around!

Thank you City of Dallas Fire Fighters, not just for opening up your station to our little tikes, but for all that you do to keep us all safe! Enjoy the pics!

Be Blessed and Encouraged!

7 Months

Asher, you are now 7 months old, and once again I find myself wondering where the time has gone! It feels like just yesterday I was holding you in my arms for the first time! You are getting so big. You and your big brother wear the same size diapers, even though he's 20 months older than you, which is just mind boggling to me! I'm not sure how much you weigh, but I'm going to guess around 23 pounds. We won't know again until your 9 month, but I'm guessing by then you'll be closer to 25!

You have proved to be what most people would consider a "normal" baby, meaning you didn't start sleeping through the night until right around 6 months old. You eat at a more normal level now which has been great for our budget for sure! You started on solids as well, and you seem to love everything I give you, minus peas.

You still don't have any teeth, but I have a feeling it won't be too much longer, although I've been thinking you've been teething for the past couple months and nothing has shown up yet! Guess we'll have to wait and see!

Asher, I continue to fall in love with you more and more every day! You are such a precious gift to us and I thank the Lord for you every day! I love you sweet baby boy!!

Be Blessed and Encouraged!

27 Months

Oh. My. Goodness. Caleb, I fall in love with you more and more every. single. day. You are amazingly bright and smart and hilarious! You are passionate and sensitive. You love your little brother so much. Thank you for the adventure you introduce in to my life every moment I spend with you. Building lego houses, and playing trains, play doh and Toy Story color wonder, Curious George and your little brother's rattle are all things that you are obsessed with right now! Yes, you are two, and there are moments of discipline, but each moment is just another moment for the Lord to show me grace, and for me to teach you what grace is. You are such a blessing to me and I love you so much my biggest little man!!

Be Blessed and Encouraged!
