This blog is a record of my life as the Lord shepherds me through His will. It is a testament to the lessons I learn, or attempt to learn.

    Ilijah's First Words

    Okay, so he has been able to talk for a while now, but now he really has the hang of it.  Lately, he can say just about everything.  However, here are a few words he says on a consistent basis:

    Oh Toooo - dles
    Dad & Dadda
    Mom, Mommy, & Momma
    I DID IT!
    Bella
    Baby
    OH no
    No no
    Yes Sir is - No no
    Yes Mam is - No no
    Okay, which he does say from time to time, is also - No no
    (Yes, we are correcting this, and yes, he is doing it on purpose.  He just absolutely loves doing it and gets the biggest kick out of it, even when he does get consequences for it.)
    Yeah Yeah
    Whoohoo!
    Gotcha
    Cars
    Where's the cars?
    Juice
    More
    More Please
    Thank you
    Bye bye
    Hi
    Hey
    Hello
    Kaa-Chow!
    Eyes
    One, two, three!
    GO!
    Shoes
    Uh oh
    Pizza
    Night night

    Those are just a few of the ones that I could remember of the top of my head.  It is crazy how fast these little ones grow right before your eyes.  I love every minute of my time with them and I thank the Lord for blessing me with the opportunity to raise His little ones.  Ilijah & Izabella, mommy loves you very much.

    New Favorite

    Ilijah and I have a new favorite thing to do together!  We just love to sit together and eat fresh blueberries.  I would show you a picture of his excitement, but my camera is currently on the fritz.  He just eats and eats and says yum yum yum with a growl voice.  SO SWEET : )

    Just For Meme!

    So, Meme finally got on me for not posting a blog in over two weeks . . . oops.  Life has just been crazy lately as we try to get our house on the market and as Jacob and I have been doing a drama series for the Hosea series at Two|Four.  No excuses anymore though.  So here is what I have in store for you all today.  Tasha just posted a blog about "If the kid's could have it their way they would..."  So, I thought I would write about my kids as well.  Here goes . . . (they are mostly about Ilijah, but I will write both if it applies to both of them)

    . . . eat fruit bars, crackers, pizza and fish sticks all day everyday
    . . . watch the movie Cars non-stop all day everyday
    . . . drink a gallon of juice a day
    . . . run around naked (both)
    . . . take a bath before every nap and night time (both)
    . . . climb on the countertops while pushing all of the buttons on the appliances
    . . . pull all of the toys out and spread them all over the floor
    . . . loves to pick on his sister and make her cry, but he also loves to comfort her when she does
    . . . hang out with everyone all day and never have to have alone time (both)
    . . . Izabella would watch Praise Baby all the time
    . . . pick mom's nose
    . . . climb all over mom
    . . . jump from couch to couch and scare mom to death
    . . . wrestle with dad all day
    . . . follow mom wherever she goes
    . . . steal toys from the kids room at church
    . . . play outside all the time whether warm or freezing cold
