Walking Boy

Proof that James will soon be a walker.

Walking to Daddy

Walking to Mommy

A few reasons....

...why I love our church. In no particular order.

1) Child Care: No matter who is working in the nursery, they always remember James and a few of them get really excited when they see that he's coming in. I love that these ladies love our son.

2) Relationships: Ryan and I have made some of the deepest friendships of our lives with people who love and serve Jesus at this church.

3) Community: Unless we are called to move somewhere else, our children will grow up with a community of loving, Godly people who have the same values that we do and are raising their children as such.

4) Teaching: The teaching is Jesus centered and does not stray from scripture. Our pastors preach and teach the truth of the bible so that we can all grow closer to Jesus and glorify God.

5) JESUS: Our pastors aren't afraid of talking about sin, Satan and hell. We are confronted on a weekly basis with the fact that we are all sinners and none of us are worthy of entering the kingdom of God. We are taught, as the bible very clearly states, that the ONLY way to heaven is through belief in Jesus Christ and that there is a real hell for those who don't.

That's all, we just got back from church and I am just so thankful for Jesus right now and what he did for me, that he saved me from my self and from hell, that I had to share.

Baby Sing

We had our first ultrasound today for baby #2 and everything looks great. His/Her heartbeat seems to be good and strong and he/she appears to be a healthy little lamb. Also, according to the doctor I am in fact 10 weeks pregnant and this little bugger is due one November 20th.....but will probably be coming out a little earlier because I'll be having a c-section.

Here's what James thinks about the new baby.

Did you know that the word fetus, which I generally don't like the sound of, means "little one"...I like this word a lot more now that I know this tidbit.

Speaking of our little one, I may be farther along than I thought. I have finally secured a doctor and an appointment with said doctor and we go in on Thursday to hear our little one's heartbeat, yeah! I thought, and still kind of do think, that I was 8 weeks pregnant but the nurse seems to think I am 10!!!!! Which would explain why I have been feeling a lot less morning sick this week but I still don't believe it. Oh well, the Dr will figure all that stuff out.

As I mentioned the morning sickness seems to have tapered off a bit (thank you Lord!) but now I've got this nasty cold that took ahold of me over night. This morning my wonderful husband actually had to stay home from work (after a tear filled request from his ailing wife) because I couldn't get out of bed. BUT, I slept till almost 2pm and now I feel A LOT better, not great, but a least I'm out of bed and doing things like laundry.

In other news, James started walking on April 17th.....well taking steps anyway. He takes about five steps at a time and if you act really excited while he's doing it he might even give you a replay. We're trying to get it on video for the blog but no luck yet, soon enough.

Alright, I might need to go back to bed now. Sorry for the small number of posts lately but I promise that I'll start up again once all sicknesses subside.

Love ya'll,

So today wasn't the greatest Spring day ever but the weather was good enough to merit a trip to Seattle to meet some friends for tacos (which I now wish I had ordered more of to take home, I love Tacos Guaymas!) and then off to the UW campus to show James our old stomping ground.

If you haven't ever been to UW in the Spring you should make the trip...especially to the quad where all of trees are in bloom. Here are a few shots from our day...which by the way was wonderful (I wasn't sick for most of it, yeah!) and ended with a Dick's burger and a chocolate milkshake (two really good reasons to live in Seattle).

Hair Cut

This is what happens when you let two parents who know nothing about cutting a child's hair , cut a child's hair. Ryan and I both had a hand in this disaster so we're both equally least hair grows right?

What did you people do to the back of my head?!

Belated Birthday Pics

Sorry to post these so late but I haven't exactly been myself lately. Between chasing around a one year old and feeling sick to my stomach because of our little new one I haven't had the time or desire to blog. But better late than never.

Here are some pictures from our day at the aquarium with James along with his first birthday cake.....which he didn't like at all! How is this kid related to me?!
