Kendall’s Baptism Day!

Sunday, February 28, 2010

We headed to Charleston this morning to celebrate with Linds and Ryan and the rest of our families-today Kendall was baptized! The ceremony was so meaningful, and I could tell by the look on their faces that Linds and Ryan were touched!imageKendall wore the family gown and looked so beautiful!imageimage imageThe Grants hosted a luncheon after church, so we were able to enjoy more family time and love on Kendall!imageimageimageimageimageimage I’m so proud of you sweet girl!  We look forward to seeing what God has in store for your little lifeimage

Twelve Months Old

Wednesday, February 24, 2010

Well, baby boy, you’re one!! I can’t believe it, but it’s true! A year ago we became your parents and we have loved every minute of it! We sure think you hung the moon, little one!image You make the funniest faces when we’re playing, and your little laugh is so contagious! You’re quite ticklish and just plain funny! Bottom line, you’re a happy, happy boy!imageThis past month you’ve really shown that you understand what we’re saying to you. You’ll bring us the ball, clap your hands, touch your nose, dance (SO funny!), touch your belly, give us kisses-you’re so fun to interact with! Just like all one year olds, you’re on the move! You’re interested in everything, and it’s neat to see what it is that grabs your attention.imageThe biggest milestone this past month is that you took your first steps and became a full time walker! We bought you your first pairs of shoes, and you haven’t looked back. It doesn’t seem like such a little guy should be able to walk-it’s too cute to watch you toddle around! imageNo change to your schedule this month. You’re a boy of routine, and it seems to be serving you-and us-well. If anything you’ve been inching your bedtime up a little bit. Maybe all that walking is tiring our little guy out!image We found another tooth on your birthday, so now you have three! You’re a great eater-we haven’t found anything yet that you don’t like, but I’m sure the day will come if you’re anything like your mommy!imageJack, we love you, we love you, we love you! We love everything about you and and are so proud of you! God has been so good to us, and we pray for your continued happiness and good health each day! You’re still my t-tiny baby, little one year old!

Twelve Month Well Check

Tuesday, February 23, 2010

We went to visit Dr. Trey this morning for Jack’s well visit, and left with a glowing report and a clean bill of health!  Yeah!  Mark had a CLE that he couldn’t miss, so that left this mommy to brave FOUR shots by herself!  Jack got a shot in each arm and in each leg, but two seconds after Nurse Janet was finished, he was smiling again.  Man, that’s a rough couple seconds though!  He continues to hate the scale and the crinkly paper he has to lay on, but other than that, he was a good boy!  We are so thankful for his health!DSC03670
