~~Been a while..... 50 weeks old~~

Okay, so this slacker mom had too much going on last week. I never got to post....been a little busy tying up loose ends for our Meet the World Birthday Party!!! We do hope you will join us!
March 19 from 1:00 to 3:00 at FUMC Activities Center

Not a lot to update this week. I'm afraid we are starting our third round of ear infections. Wayne will take Reed to the doctor tomorrow morning to see if that's why he's running a fever and SCREAMING in pain. It's been a long and tiring day since our little fellow has felt badly.

A few pics from the past two weeks. Praying God's blessings for each and everyone of you this week. Don't forget to email if you plan to be at the party so we can have some idea of how many to expect (

Love to all,

~48 weeks and counting~

Who would've thought we would make it this far when our journey began on March 14, 2010??? In 4 weeks from tomorrow, Reed will be 1 year old!!! WOW!!! Thank You, God, for sparing our baby! We have only battled 2 sets of ear infections in 11 months, which is AMAZING!! The dreaded one year at home sentence has been a tremendous blessing to us. Keeping Reed at home and having Grandma keep him instead of a daycare has truly kept him well enough he could THRIVE at such an amazing rate. Tomorrow we will celebrate Reed's 11-month birthday along with Valentine's Day. I can definitely say in the past year I have experienced every type of love that exists....even a love that never stopped in the darkest days.

Our little man is crawling like lightning, and getting into everything. I have made 2 trips to Wal Mart this weekend and forgot to buy cabinet locks both times. I'm still in shock that he's big enough to get into the cabinets, I guess. HA!

In 5 short weeks, we will celebrate Reed's birthday with a BLOWOUT. We want all of you faithful prayer warriors to join us for his 1st Birthday/Meet the World Party. Please mark your calendar for March 19, 2011. We will party at the Activities Center of First Methodist Church. The party will be from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. Feel free to drop by or stay the entire time. Good times and great memories will abound! Thank you for staying with us on this journey as we have all experienced a modern day miracle! We love each and every one of you, and look forward to spending time with each of you at the party!

Love to all,

What a Blessed Birthday ~ 47 weeks old

What a wonderfully blessed birthday I've had this year! I have the best birthday present to celebrate as I turn 34....a precious son who is my modern day miracle man. I have enjoyed my day today just snuggling with all three of my precious babies, and there was nothing I'd have rather been doing. :) 

Reed started the weekend off with an after hours appointment at the pediatrician. He has a full blown ear infection in his right ear and a lot of congestion/upper respiratory stuff going on. Thanks to those two upper teeth coming in! He's been on plenty of meds, including breathing treatments, all weekend. We have actually seen some improvement, and pray that he's back to his normal happy self soon.

My sweet babies and husband sent me beautiful roses to school Friday for my birthday. Wayne and I went to dinner and a movie Saturday night with friends, while the girls made me a birthday cake with Grandma. Today has been a lazy, snuggling day with my babies. What a wonderful birthday weekend!!! Thank You, God, for blessing me with another wonderful year with my family!

Now that my birthday has passed, we are in HIGH gear racing towards Reed's big birthday/meet the world bash!!! March 19th....BE THERE!!!!

Much love to all,
