About Me

My Photo
Wow where do I begin??? First of all I love my Jesus. He's my rock & comforter. By no means am I perfect & I am so thankful that in Him I am saved. I have been married to my best friend for 5 years. Colby is such a great hubby and amazing daddy. I can't believe what a hard worker he is and what he does for our family. If it's possible, I love him more everyday. We have two little boys, Jake who turned three in January and has blessed our lives more than we could have ever imagined! And Jett who was born in November and is such a sweet angel! Becoming a mommy has brought out an entire new part of me that I never knew existed. And I honestly can't even describe it. But it's the best, most significant, and most rewarding thing I've ever done. My family is my WORLD...I'm not worthy of such a beautiful family. GOD IS GOOD!

My "Little" is Eleven Months!

 Jett, you are eleven months old today!  Daddy and I said today how fast your first year has gone by.  In another short month you will be ONE.  What a big boy you are getting to be!
 Over the past month you've done a lot of growing!
You're getting two more teeth!  Your top incisors are almost in!  And they look just precious...I know you're glad that's over!  :)
You're almost walking constantly.  You've just about got it down!  Just over the past couple of days you really made some huge progress.  Any day now and you'll be doing it ALL the time.

The hardest part is just getting you to take that first step, and once you do you can walk all over!  And it's usually going after Jake, one of your friends, Kasey, or going outside!

You're saying some new words...we've heard "cheese," "more," "bye," "Tigger" ("Tigga"), and "Ty" for sure.  And when we ask you what a cow says you say, "Mmmmm!"  It's too cute.
You love...giving kisses, playing outside, following Jake around wherever he goes, clapping your hands, dancing to music, Elmo, Tigger & Pooh, Mommy's phone, and looking at books!

 We have loved your little baby days but are looking forward to little boy days to come!  You are so loved!  I love being your Mama!!

10 Months






You are now 10 months old.  I am not sure how time has gone so fast but it seems like each month passes more quickly than the next.
 A lot has been changing for you, my sweet baby...you are starting to make the change from baby to little boy. Everyday you looks bigger to me! And it's strange to know that we will never again have a 10 month old and in 2 short months you will be a year old...kinda makes me sad.

Over the last month you've learned lots of new words! You can say hi, hey, mama, dada, Jake, Gigi, ball, and Kasey. I was thinking at first you might be my more quiet child but I have been proven wrong! You babble constantly and try repeating everything we say!

You are so close to walking! You take 2 to 3 steps here and there all the time and have gone 5 or 6 at a time a few times too. You can stand soooooo well and walk like a champ with the walker or holding onto our finger. I think once you gets your confidence about it you will be walking everywhere!
You love your brother. I am amazed how well you two play together with your age difference. One of your favorite things to do together is jump on the trampoline! You love for Jake to bounce you and I really think you could stay on there for hours!

 You love being outside. Anytime we let you, you want to be out playing in the grass or on the porch with Jake.



 I am loving every second watching you learn and explore and say new words and play with Jake and play by yourself and turn into the little person whom we all adore.


 Jett I can't believe how fast your first year is going by. We are trying to hold onto every moment with you. We pray that you will always keep your sweet demeanor and happy spirit! God has blessed us by giving you to us and we will forever be grateful for such a precious gift. We love you so much!!!!!!

~8 and 9 Months~


Well I somehow missed updating my sweet Jett at 8 months!  Here's just a few things that happened to you during your eighth month of life! 

We had LOTS of T-ball games!  You were always a trooper out in that heat!  You always seemed to be so happy out there...and thankfully we had lots of people to help keep you entertained too!  I think you had fun cheering on your big brother.  ;)


NaNa, Gran Gran, RaRa, and Mariah and Trey all came for a quick visit.  They were happy to see you and were amazed at how big you are getting!



 
We had lots of playtime outside with your friends.  Being outside is for sure one of your favorite things!

 You got two teeth this month!  Your bottom two came in and I love your toothy little grin!

Right before you turned eight months you started pulling yourself up to stand.  You are so determined!

Happy 8 months baby boy!

 





Jett, you are now NINE months old!  I am amazed at how much time has already gone by.

A lot has happened in your ninth month of life! 

You now have four teeth!  They're all four on the bottom and they are OH SO CUTE! 

We finally got a chance to go visit Gran Gran & NaNa & the Mayes in Oklahoma!  It was your first long trip in the car and you did so well!  We had LOTS of fun and we can't wait to visit again!

 
 
You seem to look more and more like your Daddy everyday to me!  It's so neat to see that same sweet smile that Daddy has on you too! 

 We've had lots of playtime with friends!
You are already getting brave...since you've gotten really good at pulling up you're now already trying to let go and see if you can stand alone!  And there's been a few times that you have stood for a few seconds before you realized what you were doing!

We're finally getting you to say a couple of words!  "Hi" is definitely your favorite right now.  You say it to anyone or any picture or animal you see!  It's precious!

You love to wave hi and bye bye and you have just about figured out how to clap!  

Your little push walker is probably your favorite toy right now!  You just go all over the living room walking with that thing!  And if it's any sign of what's to come we better watch out!  ;) 

You are dancing!  And you love it!  When you hear music you just get to it!  It's so cute! 


It was your first Fourth of July!  We went and watched the parade and walked the square a time or two!  You didn't seem to mind the loud sirens!  You were very content sitting and watching and taking everything in.  You missed your first fireworks because of the burn ban but maybe next year!  ;)

Jett - We all love you so much and can't believe how big you are getting!  You will be turning into a little boy before we know it.  I pray that we will always hold on to these times and cherish every moment because it's over so fast.  You are so much fun and so happy and have brought so much JOY to our lives.  I thank God for my sweet baby Jett!  Happy NINE MONTHS!!
