I hope we have good weather. And I hope the baby travels and adjusts well. I'll be back with plenty of pictures! Hope everyone has a great weekend!

9 Months

My sweet baby boy turned 9 months last Saturday! Can you believe it??? I can't! Time really does fly by. Even though I went a whole 26 (almost 27) years without him, I can't imagine my life without him! He's my little sidekick! He goes where I go. He has blessed my life more than he will ever know. He has changed me! He has made me a better person. Everything I do, I do for him. One of the most special gifts he has given me is a more personal and closer relationship with the Lord. son saved my life, my eternal life! I can't even put into words how much I love him. I want to be the best Christian Mother to him. I want him to know God's love and how full his life can be having Jesus Christ as his Saviour. I know he will ALWAYS be watching and listening to me, so that is the best reason to be a living example for him!

We went to his 9 month doctor's appointment last Friday. It went really good (minus the 2 hour wait). My big boy weighs right at 22 lbs and he's 29 inches long. Told you he was big!!!

Hope everyone is having a great week!

I saw this commercial yesterday that made me soooo happy and brought back soooo many childhood memories!!! You wanna know what it was???? PETE'S DRAGON!!!! They are re-releasing that movie! I had completely forgotten about that movie. Does everyone know what I'm talking about? It's a movie about a boy and his dragon that no one else can see. The actors are all real people but the dragon is a cartoon. I HAVE to by that for my baby! And I have to admit...I kind of want it for myself! Ha!

New and Exciting Challenge

Starting this Sunday I'm the new co-teacher in the 2 year old Sunday School room at my church! I'm super excited about it! I started out wanting to volunteer a couple of Sundays in the nursery and ended up being a SS teacher. I really feel like God has put me where he wants me to be. I worked with the 3 year old class in VBS this year and absolutely LOVED it. I am really looking forward to taking on this new challenge and see where it takes me! Please pray for me, my fellow teachers, and our children. I feel so blessed to be able to tell these precious children about God! This Sunday is our Promotion Sunday so we'll have all new kiddos. I'm sure some of them (if not all of them) will be a little unsure of the new environment. Hopefully they'll all adjust well. Also, my little one is moving to a new classroom too! I hope he does well. He hasn't really had any separation anxiety so lets hope it doesn't start now.

Oh and one more week and we're off to the beach!!!!

Quick Update

I found out Sunday that the girl that visited my Sunday School class has cyst on her ovary. So far the baby is fine but they are watching the cyst. If it happens to burst it could be very harmful to her and the baby. Just continue to lift her and the baby up in prayer! Thanks! I hope everyone is having a good week!

Lately I've been thinking about how lucky I am to have such a wonderful family. I have parents that have been together for about 30 years and still love each other. Actually, I can honestly say that I never even heard them disagree let alone fight! They raised me in a Christian household that was full of fun times and love. They both worked hard to provide for me and my younger brother. It's not until I had a child of my own that I realized the "greatness" of their parenting. I realize the sacrafises they had to make for us and the hurt/worry they had to indure when we messed up. I thank God everyday for my Christian parents. Without them there is no telling where I would be and what I would be doing in my life.

Without getting into too much detail......I look around at other familys and see them lying, hurting, and backstapping each other! How can family do that to each other! I mean really! When everybody else fails you, your family members are the one's that are supposed to be there. Not the one's to go behind your back and befriend the one's that hurt you! It doesn't make good sense to me.

Anyway, God has truely blessed my life with wonderful family and not just immediate family. I have wonderful, Godly Grandparents, Aunts, Uncles, Cousins, etc. Seeing the way other families act towards each other really makes me appreciate this. I think this is one of the greatest blessings God has given me. I want to pass this blessing on to my son. I am truely dedicated to giving him a loving, Christian home environment......he deserves it!!!!!

Prayers Needed

Hey everybody in blog land! We had a pretty awesome and relaxing weekend, again! I LOVE the weekends. I LOVE my husband being off and spending time with our family. It doesn't even matter if we just lay around the house, I LOVE it! Friday Adam got off early so he cooked us dinner. I LOVE when he cooks. He made fried pork chops, rice and gravy, and asparagus! He is a wonderful cook. He should seriously have a recipe blog, haha! He would NEVER go for that! Then Saturday we ran some errands and then we went out to eat with our friends and their two kids. Their little boy is only 2 weeks older than my baby boy. We went to Macaroni Grill, YUMMY! Then Sunday we went to church and ate at Mamaw's. It was an all around wonderful weekend! :)

That being said, I have something on my mind. Sunday a girl visiting our Sunday School class told us (during prayer request time) that she was 19 weeks pregnant with her third baby and she has been having a lot of problems. Then during the middle of class she went to the bathroom, when she came back she said she was bleeding again and needed to go to the hospital. We offered to drive her but she said she was fine. Anyway, I'm really worried about this girl. Her and her baby have really been on my mind. I would like for everybody to please take a minute and say a prayer for them.

This whole situation really scares me. I know I would like to have another baby one day, but I am really scared about it. I'm more scared to have a second child than I was to have a first! I think it's because now I know the love that you have for your child. It is really indescribable! I just can't imagine going through something like that. I just have to keep in mind that God doesn't give you anything you can't handle and that He can get you through anything. Please keep this girl in your prayers! She needs it!
