My daily prayer...

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything in prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. Philippians 4:6

Summer fun!


What a wonderful time we had today! AnnMarie was in from California and we went to her sister's house for a swim and what we like to call a Summitt! And boy was it a blast! We all swam for a long time, the girls were all so beautiful and the boys so handsome! Our bond as mothers and now friends was instant! Jodi and I have been friends for a few years now and it is great to see our son's grow up together! Lynn your baby is on their way...I feel it! What an amazing group of ladies! We could have stayed forever! Great fun! Marybeth is not in the picture...she is taking it! Jen sorry you missed it today...we missed you!!!
So everytime I see a commercial for the Olympics it is giving a countdown...it is the same countdown for Julian's birthday! Holy cow...next friday he will be one! What an amazing journey it has been!

Hot summer night...


So we were outside and Jeff had the sprinkler on and I thought it would be fun to put Julian near it and see what he would do...

I remember...

I remember when the topic of conversation with my girlfriends was about...
Life before husbands:
What we were going to do that night.
What we were going to wear...
Who we liked...
Our hopes and our dreams.

Life when we met our met our husbands:
How in love we were...
What we were doing that weekend...
When we were getting married and then all talk went to the wedding and Honeymoon...
Our hopes and dreams.

Life after after our wedding:
OH how we want babies!
Babies...
more talk about babies...

Life when we couldn't get pregnant...
another period...
oh how we want babies...
another period...

Life entering the adoption process...
We were profile...
we talked to a birthmom...
we weren't chosen...
WE WERE CHOSEN!!

Now life with a child...
Buggers, Poop and pee....

That is what my topic of conversation has been with 3 of my close girlfriends this past week...all about buggers, pooping and peeing! How does life transform to this???? It is a wonderful thing...that is all I know...so induldge me...let's talk about our babies more!!!

Here is my little man...hope it works

Hanging with Julian at 11 months!

Can you stand it...I can't! he is 11 months old already. He has been with us longer then we waited...Yeah!!! This is what I wake up to everyday! He is never sad, or crying when he wakes up...this is right after he ate a watermelon...well not the whole melon, just a piece. Today we are just chilling at home. I have some cleaning to do and Daddy is working...I really enjoy our time together. I am going to post a couple of videos...not sure how they will turn out...they are older...not too recent...life is good!

Hot summer day!


What a great weekend we had! The weather was great! On Saturday we suprised Nana and Papa with breakfest and hung out most of the day and then today we worked in our yard, while Jules hung out in his pack and play, then we went to my parents for swimming, dinner and fun! When I was taking him in to get him ready for bed, I put him on the floor and he made a b-line for this plant, so I had to get my camera and take a few pictures! Hope you enjoy!


Making his way to the plant...
So happy he got a leaf!!!
Looking at Papa as he is flicking the leaf!
Inspecting the leaf...
Really flicking the leaf...
Chasing mommy with the camera...he almost won this time!!! Have a great week!!!
