A great day!

Today I went and did a photo shoot for San Antonio Weddings Magazine.  They did a bridesmaid dress spread that is going to come out in July and my name will be on all 7 pages as the company that did hair and makeup!!!  So excited.  We worked from 12 PM till 7 PM.  It was amazing!!

I took this shot on my phone but it's the only one I had time to do.  I will post as soon as the issue comes out so you can look it up and see the photos.

Smooth Guy Updates :-)

So here is the latest in the life of Judah...

Some new words that he has added to his vocab repertoire are: 
- Puppy (which sounds like bubby - just like his cousin, my niece, Emma used to say!)
- Wow!  or Whoa!!!  (so funny)
- Tree (he is learning that not every piece of foliage is a "flowie")
- Eat (Suprised it took him so long! LOL)
- Cracker (which we couldn't understand for the longest time because it sounded like "guaca")
- "Fant" which is short for Elephant... he usually just blows with his lips pursed together to make the   sound which is much cuter in my humble opinion!
- Butter (which is butterfly)
- Bible (he said this on Easter Sunday when he was playing with one of his new books!  Never taught it to him but wish we could take the credit for that one!)

In the land of TEETH:
There has been much breakthrough!!!  He has his 2 bottom teeth (pray for them to straighten, they are a bit crooked but super cute).  Just in the past 2-3 days he's cut 3 top teeth and man has he been a trooper.  I know he's been in some serious pain and he's been super smooth!!  They are still coming in but they just broke through the skin in the last day or so.  

Here are some pictures of him in action... 

He spends the day sometimes with his friends Gabriella and Konrad.  Gabriella is helping him learn to walk in this picture!  So hysterical!

This is an edited picture of Judah getting so excited to sit next to Konrad (who is about 10 months younger than him so he feels very "big brother" around him)

Here is a pic of one of his new favorite pass-times.  DIRT!!!

One Small Step!

Last night Judah took his first small steps by himself!  It was very exciting for him and he suddenly thought he could run, therefore he kept lunging forward like a horse out of the gate and falling on his face.  He would then laugh about the whole thing as I sat in amazement!

I am officially 30 weeks pregnant today!!!  AHHH!!  So much to do and no time to do it!  Claire has begun to move around quite a bit more, which I must say I love!  She is a kidder already, though.  Every time I tell Micah to look or feel her move she stops!  She's just playing hide and seek early :-)  I cannot wait to see her beautiful face! 

Here is a picture of one of the wall hangings I painted for her last week.  It is on 4 separate canvasses that will be placed close together on the wall to make one big butterfly!

SA Weddings

Here is my PAGE on San Antonio Weddings Site!!!  YAY!!

Happy Anniversary To US

Today is a great day!  It has been four crazy years since Micah and I said "I DO" :-)  It is hard to believe that time has flown so fast.  We are awaiting the arrival of our 2nd little bundle and we have an amazing son that reminds us every day how good God is to both of us.

Micah has been not only an amazing husband, but a wonderful friend and a terrific father to Judah.  I truly could not imagine my life without him in it now.  I was so independent and "focused" on my dreams and goals just a short time ago and now I am so consumed with the plans that God has for our family and our ministry and life together.  I never forsaw that life could be so fulfilling as a wife and mother.  It is amazing!!

We are also surrounded by such wonderful friends and family that love and support us.  Thanks to everyone who has stood by us in great times of triumph and times of "war" in the trenches!!  Life would be boring without either of those and we are so grateful to have shared both with such loyal, trustworthy people.

Here are some things that Micah did for me today...
