Two weeks ago, my sweet little Judd turned two. As I began typing this post I just smiled because being around Judd will bring a smile to anyone’s face. It is hard to believe that two years have come and gone so quickly.
Here is a peek at my pregnancy journal written for Judd.
“We found in April that we were expecting you. We went to see the Dr and he confirmed that you would be due in Dec. we are thinking approximately 21 or 23. Although we would love for you to come a little earlier in the month so that your birthday wouldn’t be so close to Christmas, but we will take whatever blessing God gives us.”
“So May 12 your daddy and I went to see Dr. Cox for our first ultrasound. We were able to hear your heartbeat, which were 170. Since I found out I was pregnant with you I thought that you were a girl and I have always heard that high heartbeats could mean a girl. I guess we will wait and see what God has in store for us in December.”
“We pray for you often. We pray that no matter your gender that you will be a healthy baby that loves the Lord will all your heart. I want you to know Him and love Him unashamedly with a passion that will never stop.”
“Your daddy and I then mentioned to Regina that I think you are a girl and he thinks you are a boy. She then said oh I already know! Which could mean it was so obvious that you are a boy, but what is crazy is your daddy and I looked at the screen the whole time and didn’t see anything. How Fun! We got to see you kick mommy a lot. You are so much more active than your brother, which is really funny since I thought he was really active.”
“This morning at breakfast he (Jake) started saying “Baby Judd” maybe he knows something we don’t.”
“You entered the world 6 minutes after I started pushing at 4:42 p.m. It’s a boy! We just looked at you and smiled. Your daddy had been right the whole time.”
I enjoyed that stroll down memory lane. Judd has been and continues to bring so much joy to our lives and our family. There is never a dull moment when he is around.
Here are a few of Judd’s favorites things:
1. Mommy says “Judd you need to finish eating your lunch” and Judd says “only two bites”
2. Yay Facons (Falcons)
3. He LOVES to repeat everything Jake says or does. We call him Jake’s Parrot.
4. Very Recently Judd has started telling us “Me preach Bible.”
5. Pizza: The boy thinks pizza should be his only source of nutrition.
