7 days exactly until our family vacation to Galveston!!!!! Jason and I can not wait!

Also, yesterday was a BIG day for Miss Ava Reese. She rolled over from tummy to back and giggled/ laughed out loud- so precious!

She had been getting really frustrated lately on tummy time, grunting alot, fussing, drawing her knees up under her, etc. Once again she was at it and then all of sudden quieted down, pushed her chest off ground and flipped right over! I made a big deal of it of course and she got really talkative. Adorable!

As for the laugh, she has this grin where she is just turning inside out! For awoke she would give that grin and then do a series of little coughing noises. This time the grin remained and the bubbliness and bliss spilled out in the sweetest giggle sound I have ever heard!:)

Well that is all for now, have a great weekend!

Happy Mother's Day!!

I wanted to make sure and honor you on Mother's Day!  I wish so badly I could be there with you this weekend! 

For all of those out there who know my  mom the following description won't come as any surprise and for those who don't, you will be blessed by reading! 

My mom is the most selfless and giving person of her time and love that I know.  She pours her heart and soul into our family whether doing FUN and thoughtful things for us, planning vacations, listening to our long winded stories, giving Godly wisdom or advice, traveling back and forth to us as often as we need her to, going above and beyond for her grandchildren and serving us in that way, cooking special meals when we are around, and praying for us on a consistent basis! Those are only a few ways in which my mom makes my world go round:)!  I can not imagine life without her.  She is the glue in our family and is what brings the warmth, love, and comfort to us all that we call home! 

I am so thankful that as I get older and now have a baby of my own God reveals to me more and more the depth of my mom's sacrifices and love over the years as well as the profound Spritual impact she has has on my life! 

In addition, my mom is just a COOL person!  She is not only my mom but one of my BEST friends!  We have so much fun together!  We talk mutlitple times a day, she is the second person (after Jason) that I call with good news, heartache, prayers requests, and so forth!  So she is my mom, a best friend, and we share the bond of being sisters in Christ!  What a blessing to have all of that wrapped up in the package that God allowed me to call MOM!



Happy YaYa Day from Ava and Josiah:)!!!!!

We all love you very much!

Picture Mania.....

Here is a few pics of lately.  The ones that are kinda grainy are from my I-Phone.  I apologize but it sure helps for me to catch the moment:)!

Aren't I a little lady?
Bundled up outside at Daddy's softball game
Bumbo play time

Maybe an athlete?  She is already kick boxing;)

Capturing the chunk!

Waking up from nap time- I always stretch!

Tummy time

Love those eyes! 
(also notice in pic above and this one, same outfit and different bow- couldn't decide but landed on the pink)

So, this pic makes her look so much chunkier than she is, but I love it!

Jason's best friend in college and room mate with their kids.  We had a play date the other day and had alot of fun.  When we showed up the boys were also matching, so glad we weren't meeting up in public!

Talan, Harper, and Ava
Don't you love how Harper is wanting to poke at Ava while exploring her?

Possible future Wildcat?

We are enjoying our new toy- the exersaucer

Bumbo and book time-- getting so big!

Two more just cause pics!

Just one quick thought...

Is it possible to love a person so much?!?  I cherish everyday with Ava more and more.  She melts my heart more each day!  It is amazing how much your heart can swell with no limits!  I LOVE being a mother:)! 

Thank You God for giving us this most precious gift!
