Eating for the first time


Judah has been breastfed exclusively for the first 6 months. Today he had his first bite of food, rice cereal. My mom came up to help watch him for a few days so she was able to feed him his first bite. I can't believe he's half a year old! Sock monkey pics coming soon :)

Childhood Toys

With the holidays approaching it's really started making me think of toys I had as a kid. While pregnant and since Judah was born I've been feeling really nostalgic about my favorite toys. Here are some that I remember having. Blast from the past 80s style!
Favorite Childhood Toys
My mom always made Christmas so much fun as a kid. I guess it was partly because she was an only child so my grandparents really went all out for her Christmases.

I'm really looking forward to going home for Thanksgiving and seeing our families and of course showing off Judah. Latest news – he's got a tooth starting to poke through!

Tony Merida on Adoption

I've been at SEBTS for almost three years now. During these three years I have attended the majority of the chapel services. Without a doubt my life has been heavily impacted by many of those messages. Recently, Tony Merida, teaching pastor at Temple Baptist Church in Mississippi came and gave the below message. It is one of the finest I have heard. I'm not sure if it's because God laid adoption on my heart years ago or if it's just because this sermon is that good...but either way this is one of the better chapel messages given in the last three years.

5 months


Little man can now roll over, he's on the verge of a belly laugh, he can pass objects from hand to hand, still teething like crazy but no teeth, tipping the scale at 15 lbs or more, can sit up assisted, loves getting strolled outside in the BOB with his Peepaw Crane, loves riding horsey with Meemaw, smiles all the time, loves to cuddle, sweet, laid back personality. Love him SO much.
