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

This and that...

Photo of the week...
He was 18 months here...gosh how time flyes! I loved when he could wear the footed PJ's now, he just leaks as we progress witht he potty training maybe we can work our way back to those!
Well just when you think a phase is long sneeks back up and slaps you across the face! Yes that is what my little cutie pie did to me today! Well, needless to say it caught me off guard...kinda like a sucker punch! So what do you do? Slap him back...that does not make much sense does what is a mom to do...looking for input with that...also, if you have a child who knows you don't have the strength to lift him and put him in a time out...what do you do? I begin to lose my patience and then just let him win...which we all know will for sure bite me in the butt down the line! He NEVER acts up at school or at church, so I am wondering why he does it to me...suggestions and feed back is apprecaited! As always...sending you hugs and blessings!

Picture of the week!

If I could turn back the hands of time...I would! I so would in a heart beat! I can remember this day like it was was a day in June and it was warm outside of the water but when you were wet you were cold! He was sitting on his Papa's lap...I think this is one of the most beautiful pictures of him. He was 8 months I know after experiencing this age, it was like no is one of my most favorite ages...I really think I took for granted when people say "they grow up so fast" Man do they ever! Now I have an Octopus on my hands...I swear he has 8 hands...and they are grabbing everything! Maybe it is because I restricted him too much, or it is just his age...
He is talking so much! Today he said "turn on blue!" 3 words! What a delight! He has been signing for so long, it has become a habit for us all...I have to remind myself to tell him to use his words...sometimes I tell him what to say so he repeats it...but it is very exciting!
My brother is getting married on Friday. Finally...married at 40! Who would have thought! It is a blessing that is for sure! His bride to be has 2 children, a son who is 8 and a daughter who is 8 days older then Julian. So we are looking forward to having these little blessings around! I am glad for Julian, he will have cousin he is close to...not just in age, but in visiting as well.
I will post again this week...keep an eye out! I am trying my best to post! If you are reading this, please leave a message...I know who you are lurking out there...stop by and say hi!

Changing step at a time...

I have come to realize that when you have a bad back everything can be a challenge...but Carrying extra weight can make it over the last 14 months I have lost over 65 lbs. I haven't really told many people, because I am doing it for me...not for my husband, not for Julian, not for the attention...but for ME. I Will be 39 in June and I have a goal of where I would like to be by is obtainable...and I am losing it slow, so it should stay off. This year I have made it a point to conquering my fears. I don't like to travel, so I went away on business and did just fine. Taking Julian places for me is always fearful...not sure how things are going to go with my back and such...i have been taking him more places by myself. My next fear I am working on is read aloud to people. My brother is getting married on the 16th and asked me to do a reading at his first I was going to say no becasue of my fear...but I said yes! I will keep you posted on how it goes. I guess we all have fear some have more then others...I have now I putting my faith back into God and having HIM help me along the way! Life is good in so many ways...just taking it one day at a time!

Photo of the week!

PHOTO OF THE WEEK...THIS WAS WHEN HE WAS 8 MONTHS OLD...Hard to believe he is now 32 months old. Wow time does fly by...we have been having fun the entire way! I am going to try to do this every week!
For us...this week he has put 3 words together...Mama and Daddy...3 words! I am teaching him to say I LOVE YOU...If you ever had a child with a speech delay every word matters to is the sweetest sounds to a mothers ears! He is so bright...he is just dieing to talk...he babbles all day...points and says things that I don't understand, so it is frustrating for all...but he has come so far in just one month post surgery! I don't regret having the surgery...I do regret it took so long to have it done and that no one was listening to me...until our wonderful ENT came along! God has given us many blessings...Julian is our most precious one!

Well we had a wonderful day...we are constantly reminded how blessed we really are with our son Julian. He is just an amazing child! His speech is coming along so nice, and saying 2 and 3 word sentances is very exciting to see how excited he is when he says things and we get it!
