LOVE to be outside!

naaaa’s like a horse and barks like a dog.

LOVES power tools and superheroes (grunts at them in delight)

still loves playing catch. will chase a ball around a room for a half hour or more.

will eat ANYTHING! (but baby food or anything mushy like baby food)

crawls so stinkin’ fast.

loves buzz and woody

LOVES the pool (used as a splash pad not as a ‘pool’)

thinks lucy is the bomb (that’s debatable in this house since she trapped a skunk under the back deck and made it spray TWICE!)

sleeps through the night. is learning to sleep with sissy…

hates baths, HATES THEM!

LOVES, LOVES! swinging on the swingset!

gives the best hugs!

hanging with daddy gets cooler everyday!

still a mama’s boy… 🙂

my instinct knew you were my lil man when you were in my secret place… i never dreamt i’d really get a sweet lil red haired boy. you have made me grow and mature in ways i can’t express. i’m so glad God gave us you, jace legend! i treasure everyday with you!

i think it’s time i stop avoiding this post….

jace turned one 2 weeks ago and we had a wonderful party! (one party down and one to go)

i had a wonderful time making the invitations and cupcake toppers with the cricut expression.

i wanted to make a banner to hang across our picture window – that turned into this cityscape 😀 jace LOVES it!

the capes turned out wonderfully well! i’m thrilled with them!

i had such a blast! it’s so much work but i love every minute of it! lizzie is VERY excited for her princess birthday party! 🙂

nearly one

the week my children turn a new age

is always memorable.

usually in a not-so-good way.

today, just might take the cake.


ate dog food.

got a hold of my super sharp pointed scissors (how? i still can’t figure it out!) and was crawling around with them for several seconds before getting busted.

pulled a mug of mine off my shelf and broke it. (yes my favorite, of course!)

bites now consist of -at minimum- 4 goldfish.

fell head first into the toy bin and was stuck for several seconds until i reached him.

it’s only 5pm – i’m scared!

jace is so sneaky.

if you grasp his hands while he is standing up and encourage him to walk to you, he sits down with a sneaky grin.

today, i decided he was going to walk rather he liked it or not.

(he will often times walk with 2 hands helping if it’s memaw or anyone else but mommy) 

this morning, i held on to his left hand, we walked side by side around the bar in the kitchen.

i think he’s been hiding his mad skills.

11 months {jlb}

i sit here wondering where the past 11 months have gone.

savoring today.
