15 months

I thought you just turned one my sweet boy? But time is not my friend and the days slip away far to fast! 

Can I just say how much I love this age!? 


Micah you love animals! You know what they say and I hear a lot of mooing, woofing, chirping, baaing, and neighing in a day. 

You also love to run around calling for daddy all day. 

If I ask you if you want to go out side you immediately run to get your shoes and sit down to try and put them on. Once yours are on you grab my shoes too! You love being outside and fight when it's time to come in.

You love to share you snack with me, one bite for you one bite for me. 

If I ask you if your handsome you make a cheese face, which I have yet to snap a picture of.

You give the best hugs and kisses and I hope that never stops! 

There are three pearly whites in that little mouth of yours. 

When we go outside you make a bee line for your little car and 'drive around' in it for as long as you can before getting stuck. You have only figured out how to go backwards and usually end up in the garden. 

Speaking of the garden, you LOVE mud! I don't blame you, I do too! None of my rows are straight and things are popping up all over the place because a little mister decided to crawl through right after I seeded it. 

You make the cutest scrunched up face when you smell the flowers.

If I hear you scream it usually means that the neighbours dog has come over to play and you are so excited you can hardly contain yourself!

When there is music playing your bum is a bopping.

Mowing grass, vacuuming and sweeping are most exciting!

Tuesday mornings you climb up the chair to look out the window and watch the garbage trucks come down the street. 

My boy there are so many things I want to remember forever! The way you talk, the way hand me your blankie and point to the couch after a nap so we can snuggle, and the way love so deeply!

micah vacuuming made me cry...

yes, its true.

my sweet boy was 'vcuuming' and i sat on the stairs watching and crying.
those of you who know me know that i cry pretty easily but this wasn't a 'oh my baby is growing up' moment.

i had just finished vacuuming the living room and had ran upstairs to grab something and when i cam back down this is what i saw.

he was very content 'vacuuming' so i sat on the stairs to watch him and that is when the tears started flowing.

you see this is how i vacuum:
- turn on the power by stepping on the power switch
- push the vacuum head around
- push the ball back and vacuum the next section

this is what micah did:
- reached his tiny foot up to turn the power on
- pushed the vacuum head around
- put the vacuum head down
- pushed the ball back
- proceeded to vacuum

what i saw was a mirror of what i had just done. my little boy had watched every detail of what i was doing and copied me. he had been playing with trucks while i vacuumed, i didn't even realize he was paying attention.

as i sat there and watched is tiny little foot reach up to hit the power button i was flooded with the realization of just how much impact we have on these tiny humans. he notices everything i am doing even when i don't realize it.

how blessed am i that God would entrust me, me, with this beautiful soul to raise up.

i am blown away!

it is not easy task and i need to look at myself first and make sure i am setting the example in all things and that starts by coming to the Lord in prayer and seeking His guidance and direction.

2 year anniversary

two years ago i became a mrs.

these two years have flown past but at the same time it feels like we have been married so much longer. we have had such a fantastic two years. we have had a share of ups and downs but we have grown closer through it all. i love this man more today than i did two years ago and i can't image life without him. 

 i am so glad that the Lord brought us together and that we get to journey together though the adventure of life. it has been a learning experience and i fully expect that the learning will continue.
 i am so blessed by him! he works so hard to provide for us, he is so patience with me and micah when we are both at our wits end on some days, he makes us laugh daily, and he loves us fiercely.

i am a better person because of being with this man. i catch him reading his bible after a long day and all he wants to do is go to bed, i can text him and ask him to pray about anything throughout the day and he does, he encourages me when i feel like i'm failing at being a good momma to our boy, he can just look at me and tell if i need a break and tells me he will hang out with micah so i can have some 'me' time, and so much more! 

i pray that we have many more great years ahead and that we always fight for our marriage and for each other.

i love you clint xoxo
