So my little family has some Very Exciting News! We are finally giving JohnDavid the greatest gift in the world. A sibling. A baby brother or sister for our precious boy. We are so Excited!!! (Although, he’s rooting for a baby brudda) We cannot wait to see what God has chosen for us! He continues to bless us in ways that are indescribable. Tearing down my office, (the 3rd bedroom in our home) has been bitter sweet for me. I am losing some, but gaining so much more. (Back to the little desk in my bedroom) I have already pre-designed the nursery and am picking up JohnDavid’s “bunk beds” tomm. Yes, I said Bunk Beds….for my crazy 3 year old. He wants his baby to sleep at the bottom when “he/she” gets older. (How could I deny him this?) He will not stop talking about them, so now I get to design 2 rooms! Yes! (husband’s eyebrows going up as I type this)
Thought I would share this with all of my lovely followers. Thanks for your prayers in advance. Although we have had 2 blood tests and everything seems to be fine, we are still very early in Pregnancy and continue to have faith that God always knows what is best for us. 🙂 Hopefully that means bringing in a healthy baby for us to Adore and love for the rest of our years.
I love my DJ. I love my JohnDavid. I love my new baby. Blessed is the only word to describe myself at this moment.
Before the day was over, I felt the need to post on my Baby Boy. He turned 3 today! A fact that doesn’t actually seem real at the moment. I honestly have no idea where the time went but can remember every second of his life with me! I have been blessed with a husband that strongly insists I be a stay-at-home Mom. Something I will never be able to justifiably thank him for. They have been the best 3 years of my life! He has just recently started a Pre-K 3 program at a little Catholic school with the Best teacher! In turn..leaving me all alone!!! I miss him every day he is gone but he loves being with his little friends 3 days out of the week and I love to see him happy. He has been on this photography journey with me since the beginning. ( I have to give him a break) I can’t even begin to calculate how many hours we spent in front of this darn computer together. I am now missing him on photo shoots? My little helper with the “back up” Spongebob camera is not there??? He still caries his camera with him and takes “pee-churs” like Mommy though! I know he will love this art as much as I do 😉 Saints football party this Saturday! (Even though we have been celebrating “The Big Day” for a week now) He now sings Happy Birthday to himself when he feels any need for it.
He will never fully understand the extent of my love for him or my husband who blessed me with him. No words….
Here are pictures of my hysterically funny, charismatic, genuinely unique, beautiful baby boy…
So reality check for mom. Ro-u Skapes aka “Roller Skates” are back in! I’m not talking about Roller Blades…like the cool 1999 inline skates…i’m talkin a large boot on 4 wheels with an ever bigger stopper in the front! My kid is AWESOME to say the least. He does not care that all of the children in Academy are dying over the newest Rip Stick…nope; He has to have the “Skapes” in the very back row covered in dust. (Did I mention that I love him more than anything else in this world?) Seriously, he and I go on about 2 dates a week. What’s life without weekly dates with your son? Yesterday, after hearing “I want sum skapes” for about the millionth time this week” We got dressed and headed to academy. (I called first to make sure they were still being made/stocked; to my UTTER surprise…they were there? On the drive, he was singing to his favorite movie…”Cars” every once n a while throwing in the word of the day! “life is a highway..skapes…i wanna ride it all night long..like ride my skapes”…! So my laughter begins….When we get to the “things with wheels” aisle, There they were, like shining gold calling our names. I immediately start a giggling session. (For anyone who knows me, “once it starts, it don’t stop!!!”) I have a problem with laughter…this tipped the lid. By the way, it should be illegal to have floors as slick as academy’s floors are…Waxing them every night is not actually a necessity! Not good for first time skaters. Standing up presented the first problem (I did not come in the proper attire) My long dress and long necklace took a beating. After he achieved standing in one place on those things, he begged me to put on a pair. He picked the bright white with pink laces….great. I can’t even get my size off of the shelf due to my excessive laughter and holding myself. (I do not want to know what was going on in the heads of the shoppers around me, I’m still a little embarrassed typing this..hahaha) I get those darn things on and proceed to take off, thinking of how easy it was when I was 10, right? Well after flailing my arms for 5 minutes, and giving JohnDavid and all others watching the show of a lifetime, all while getting fussed at by the personnel, (who couldn’t have been over the age of 16) I decided enough was enough and packaged them back up. He wanted to stay an extra hour just wearing them in the store. So I sat and watched and held his little hand, and pushed him down the slippery slopes they call aisles before we made the big purchase. After his Big Boy Short Summer Haircut at Mrs. Tracy’s he jumped in the car and held them all the way home. He couldn’t wait to try them on at the house! He has been wearing them off and on ever since. It’s funny how my 2 1/2 year old baby boy keeps me grounded. He could careless what is in style, what looks best, or what society deems worthy. (I pray he continues this humble attitude throughout life) I have already been blessed beyond words. It ‘s the little everyday things that make me take a step back and reevaluate my own life. “What really matters? Skapes on a Monday afternoon in academy…that’s the big picture. I will love that kid for eternity!
A tribute to the Sprites…
