~ 10 month pictures ~

Fun in the tub! Jasper LOVES the water. He really could stay there for hours.

Playing under the table. He was stuck under there. I think this was Big Brother's idea!

One of his favorite things, playing in the cabinet. This is his cabinet to empty out.

Momma and Jasper- 10 months old!
Daddy and Jasper- 10 months old!
So, here are the pictures I was not able to upload when I did Jasper's ten month post. He is getting to be such a big boy!!

~10 Months old ~

Yes, my little Jasper is now 10 months old as of March 26th, 2010! I am still taking in each precious moment with him. I feel like I have really observed him more than I did my other two children. Maybe because it is the third child and I am not planning on having any more babies. Not real sure, but he is a little bundle of joy!! He smiles a lot and hardly ever cries. If he is really tired or hungry, he will let you know.

The facts about little J:

  • Jasper you are into everything!!
  • You love to play in the cabinets and empty them out.
  • You follow your brother and sister around everywhere they go and you laugh at them a lot.
  • You still love your pacifier. (I am not crazy about this one.)
  • You throw things in the trash, luckily I have been close by to recover the trashed items. :)
  • You like your schedule and you go to bed between 8:30 and 9:00pm each night.
  • You still nurse, though I am cutting you off at a year buddy!!
  • You weigh about 20 pounds and have two teeth on the bottom and none on the top. I keep waiting for them to come in because you chew on everything you can get your hands on and slobber majorly.
  • I am wondering if you are going to be a drummer. You really like to bang on things and you have a little drum and you play with it a lot. Music makes you happy. I love to watch you "wiggle" to music when it is going.
  • You love your momma!! Daddy is starting to realize how much of a momma's boy you really are. Sometimes you even fuss if I hand you off to Daddy. I kind of like it!! :)
You bring so much joy to my life. You are a little ray of sunshine and I am so blessed to be your mother. God chose me!! Wow! That is incredible!! I love you little guy, my sweet little baby J!

~ Creepy.. Natural... ~

Creepy and natural??

These two words seem to be Hud's new words? Really? Where did my crazy three year old pick these words up? He doesn't even really know what they mean because he doesn't use them correctly. I love the joy and laughter he bring to my life. I never know what he is going to say. At this moment he is singing "Sweet Home Alabama" and incorporating the word creepy in it. HA!!

10 years.... 10 wonderful years.... I have been married to the most amazing man for 10 years today!!! Terral is such a wonderful Father, husband, and man. He makes me so happy and I could not imagine my life without him. God sent him to me. He makes me feel so loved and adored.

Thank you!!! Thank you for loving me so much. Thank you for the most wonderful 10 years!! I can't wait for the many more we have ahead of us. You always listen when I want to talk and that speaks a lot!! HA! Thank you for choosing me to be your wife. It is an honor. I appreciate all the hard work you have put in for our family. I know God has big plans for us and I am anxious to glorify Him together. I love you so much!!!

~ The Meaning of Easter ~

Easter is quickly approaching and in my head I am thinking, "What am I going to wear?" "Do I have outfits for all the kids and Terral?" " What am I going to put in their Easter baskets?" Anyway, you get the point. I am almost sure many of you are thinking some of the same thoughts.
So, on my way to work this morning, I was listening to KLOVE (my favorite station). They gave a statistic that was so sad to me. They said only 4 in 10 Americans know why we celebrate Easter. Seriously??? 4 in 10?? That is terrible!! It was so shocking to me. People really think that it is all about the Easter bunny, peeps, and baskets. I am guilty of putting too much emphasis on the unimportant details. I really take for granted the fact I was raised in church and had a wonderful Granny who taught me the importance of knowing THE GOD!!!! My prayer is to make a difference, to reach some people, and tell them the real meaning of Easter.

If you are reading this blog and don't know, please message me. Let me share with you the greatest gift you can receive!!!!

~ I am Back ~

Well, I am finally back! My computer was invaded and was recently fixed by the wonderful, Mr. Barnhill!! If you ever have any trouble with your computer, he is the man! Thank you EB for the reference!! I am so thankful to have it back.

There has been so much happen in last several weeks. Turning 30, lots of sickness, some great and not so great weather, my precious Jasper turned 9 months old, and the passing of a truly wonderful man of God. Time is crazy. Just how quickly one event can change your life forever. I think I am getting off track here, but I am glad to be back. Look for many new posts and I can't wait to catch up on all of yours!!

Love, Shaina
