You Are One Today!!

My Sweet little you turned 1!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY COLT!! At 8:24pm you made your debut into this world and have kept us on our toes ever since. A few things I want to remember about this wonderful age.
- started walking at 11 months
- saying dada, tan tu (thank you), mama, bye bye, do (dog), yaya
- claps, dances, gives and blows kisses, plays peek a boo, gives high fives and loves to snuggle when he's tired
- weight about 25 lbs (same as his sister) and no idea on the height
- loves balls, trucks, four wheelers, tractors, and digging through cabinets

He's learning every day and I love to watch him and his sister interact. She wants to hang on him all the time and hug him and kiss him. He'll allow it for a couple of minutes and then start to pull her hair. She screams and cries for a second and then the cycle repeats itself. But they do LOVE to hold each others hand. It's so so sweet!! She walks real slow so he can keep up. If he cries she will be the first to run over and say "what's the matter little baby? You want your mommy? Hang on, I'll go get her!" It's hilarious! We pray every night to thank the Lord for this miracle baby. We only hope that we can raise him to be a Godly, humble man who walks in the way of the Lord. Who stands up for his family. Who treats women and others with respect. Who finds his place in this world and strives to do the work that the Lord has prepared long ago for him.

Pray Always

I found this verse the other day, and it has captivated my heart. I wanted to share it with you.

"I love the Lord because he hears my voice and my cry for mercy. He bends down to listen. I will pray as long as I have breath"

Psalm 116:1-2

What a beautiful picture of my Father and Savior. Bending down and scooping me up. Listening to my still, small voice even at the most insignificant times.

Mr. Blue Eyes

This little guy melts my heart. He truly does. To say that I'm totally in love would be an understatement.

No Elephants at the Zoo

So in the past few weeks we have been spending some serious time at the zoo!! While its no secret around my house that I don't love the zoo. Animals should be in their rightful habitat not in a cage (alright i'm off my soapbox). But as a child there is no greater excitement! We went to the Hattiesburg zoo and then to the Jackson zoo with our sweet friends Anna and Walker!!! I don't have any pictures :( Anna and I were too busy have some much needed catch up time!! But Walker (2 mo old) was such a sweetie and didn't even make a peep. My child on the other hand...well she never shut her mouth. Just like her momma when she was little. She repeats things like a million times as she processes them and had a real hard time with all the noises. As Anna would say..."we're not scared, we're surprised!" Hahaha. Good times were had by all. We missed you Karen and Grace!!

This Is How We Do It

This is what we do while mommy gets dinner ready. I'm so glad that they are finally at the age where they can kind of play with each other. Usually Briley does something super cool and Colt just tries to copy her. He is fearless. Sometimes a little reckless, but does everything with complete abandonment. I love that about him and at the same time I'm sure its gonna give me a heart attack about 100 times before he reaches adulthood. Briley is always so cautious. She thinks things through and always has. I never really had to babyproof the house for her. Babyproofing these days...Check!

Are You Ready?!!

It's that time of year!! After about 50 pictures this was the best we got!! It's funny to go back and look at them, and I'm sure all you parents of multiple children know how hard it is to get a good picture of both kids. Someone is always making a silly/sad/mad faced while the other is smiling. Oh well...Hope you're ready for fall!!!
