10 months

this is a little late!  jude has been 10 months now for 15 days!  my little baby doesn't really look like a little baby anymore...i think it's because of his dark hair and eyebrows, but people are so surprised when i tell them how old he is.  
he's growing up so fast.  i wish i could slow down time!
 we are now walking with the help of a push toy, but crawling is still our main means of transportation. we are slowly starting to eat more solid foods (foods that aren't mashed)...he has a terrible gag-reflex, so this has been very slow!  but, we love blueberry bagels, bananas, green beans, string cheese and the rolls at jim-n-nicks!  we love bath time, and we still love nap time! yay!  we are still taking 2 naps a day!  we are super excited when we hear the door when daddy comes home from work.  i think that's his favorite time of day!  mommy's favorite time of day is bedtime, when i can hold and sing to him.  he doesn't really like to be rocked, but for a few moments we cuddle with our blanket and i sing to him...he looks up at me and smiles, talks back to me, and sometimes laughs at mommy's singing!  it's ok if he laughs at me...that's my special time when he's still my little baby and time goes by slowly for us in that moment!

5 years ago

5 years ago, we said "i do"
i do to "i love you" and "i love you more"
i do to your sweet kisses in the morning while i lay in bed and you leave to go support our family
i do to arguments over dishes in the sink and clothes on the floor
i do to making up
i do to dirty diapers and smelling like spit up
i do to sleepless nights with no covers because i stole them
i do to never watching a movie alone
i do to best friends forever

i am truly a blessed woman and thank our Father for giving me you,
my husband
my leader
my lover
my friend.

"let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth!  for your love is better than wine..."  Song of Solomon 1:2

monkey see, monkey cute

we are not big halloween people, but i love kids in costumes.  not scary or gory ones...cute ones.  we are going to the fall festival at our church at the end of this month, and we are taking this cuteness with us...
(i know, i know, the tag is still on it...i will remove it before he wears it)

who says boys can't be beautiful

my sweet friends, who are uber talented photographers, took these pictures of jude at 9 months.  i just wanted to share them.

Behold, children are a heritage from the LORD, the fruit of the womb a reward.   Psalm 127:3
