Look at Him Gooooooo!

Today was an exciting day in our home. Judd reached a great milestone today. We are so proud and so is he!

For a few weeks, Jim and I have been debating whether or not Judd could ride without training wheels. We believed that he had the balance but we weren’t sure if his legs were long enough. Well today we had to work on his chain that kept coming off so Jim decided to remove the training wheels. Judd jumped on and with a little help starting he was riding down up and down the the drive way. By the end of the day, he was riding and turning around in the cul-de-sac. He is doing so well and we are so proud.

16 weeks

May 14- Today was my 16 week appointment with Dr. Miller. She said that I gained 5.5 pounds this month. I guess it was time to add on a few more pounds. I heard the baby’s heart beat again and everything seems to be going so smoothly. As of right now, I am still wearing my regular clothes. I am sure that I will start wearing my belly band soon enough.

Motherhood is a Gift

As I was looking for pictures of past Mother’s Day I realized that I am not very consistent at taking pictures on this particular day. It seems that I take them only when one of the babies are being dedicated. ( I am sure that I have one from 2005 but it is on a CD hidden away somewhere or was that before digital photography:-))

Mother’s day 2007

Mother’s Day 2008

I intentionally made everyone wait until we got home from church to take a picture with mommy. Of course, Anna Kate has already pulled her hair down and bow out, Jake’s shoes are off and the sun is to bright for baby Judd’s eyes.

This is the life of this mother and I would not trade it for anything in the world. The days are draining but the memories, hugs, kisses, and I love you mommy make it all worth it. Just as I say to the kids when I am praying with them, I am so thankful that God chose me to be their mommy. Motherhood is a great gift.
