drum roll please......!!!!!!!!!!!

Well I am so excited to be writing this!

Okay so here are the details.
It is a commission only job BUT a really good one from what I understand. It is with a proven company so we know he can be successful at it. He starts monday and the best part is that he is his own boss and therefore his hours are very flexible. This is great especially with me and my photography. I am just so excited!!!

So pray for him as he starts this new chapter. Pray he become successful and that things go well. I am so proud of him and I look forward to see what is in store for us!

Praise God!!

Now that is better!

Well it is a great feeling to have internet that actually works!

Now that I have a reliable connection I hope to be able to update more often.

So lately things have been so very busy. I am almost done with the final unpacking/organizing. It has taken so much longer than I ever thought it would. I guess having two little ones will do that!

Adam is still looking for a job and we are praying that God has the perfect one lined up for him and that he will find his job soon!!! He has a pretty bad sinus infection right now but is starting to get better.

I am still enjoying every minute with my two munchkins and I am working really hard on my photography. God answered some very big prayer requests in Adam's and my marriage recently. Unfortunately our situation hadn't brought out the best in us and our marriage had suffered. But by God's grace, we have now worked through those issues and are becoming better for it. It is so amazing that if you let the Lord into an area (any area), He will do more than you could imagine. You just have to let Him in...

Austin can now write his first and last name all by himself. I know I say this a lot, but he really is so smart. We are working on the letter "U" right now and some more addition.
His favorite thing right now (in addition to start wars) is Rudolph the Reindeer. He has a stuffed Rudolph and Clarisse and he carries them all over. They even come in the car with us. He watches Rudolph (the movie), he reads the Rudolph book, then he snuggles him tight and plays all kinds of games with him. Rudolph has even earned a spot next to him in bed.
It is so much fun to watch the phases he goes through. All of his likes and dislikes. First it was Nemo and Cars when he was very young, then it was pirates, then army, now star wars and Rudolph. So precious.
Today on our walk (we walk together everyday) he found a pecan, a crape myrtle bud,and an acorn that were brought home to show Daddy. Every detail in life is just so magnified when you are a child. I hope he keeps that for a while yet!

EJ is growing like a weed. He is fully mobile now and I am almost done child proofing. He doesn't quite "crawl" per say but scoots and rolls where he wants to go. He can push himself up completely and even get his knees under him. He is so strong! I don't think it will take long at all for him to be officially crawling.
He is still teething. That little tooth just wont pop through! It is right there under the gum! So in the meantime my little man is a drool machine and anything in sight just has to be chewed on! He eats three meals a day and today he ate more than ever! His nights have become a little more difficult as well. I suppose that could be due to his teething? He is now waking up and coming into bed with me anywhere from 2-4am. He use to sleep through. He still tries to take three naps a day as well. I guess he is going through a period of transition?
His language has also really taken off. He has been able to say "Da-Da", "Nigh-Nigh" (night night), and "Hi" for a while now. However, just a day ago he now says "Ma-Ma"!! I am so happy!! He uses them all appropriately as well. Just last night he told me "Ma-Ma nigh-nigh"!! He was so tired and ready for bed. I am amazed he started talking so young but I guess he is trying to keep up with his brother all ready. He can sit now for longer periods of time too. They just grow so fast! His favorite thing to play with these days is his stuffed camel from IKEA. He loves the tag! LOL. For some reason he loves tags! I just try to soak in as much as possible during this time. I know it won't last very long!

Time really does have a way of slipping by. I can't believe my babe is 6.5 months. I can't believe it is almost SEPTEMBER! I just can't believe it.

So we are hanging in there. God really is good. Thank you to everyone for your prayers as we have felt them all!!

Also, Thank you Peggy so very much for the beautiful baby clothes! I just got them today and they are wonderful! Your generosity is overwhelming! We appreciate it more than you could know! Thank you!

There has been a lot of change here lately. Financially, physically, spititually, emotionally.
Change seems to be the definition of our life recently.
However, the most amazing change has happened once I finally gave everything over to the Lord. All my stress, all my anger, all my anxiety, all my sadness. All of it. I gave him full comand over all areas of my life and something incredible happened. JOY!
I have felt God's peace in my life and I have felt His love, but it wasn't until I gave Him everything, that I now have joy. I have never felt anything like this before.

No matter what happens, no matter what chaos is thrown at us, or what twist and turns are still to come, I have NO worry. I am compleyely at peace and very very happy. I have everything I need and want.

The Lord is so faithful.

So with my new found joy, it is as if I see life through different eyes. Everything is alive and beautiful. There is so much to be thankful for.

So now instead of focusing on all the negative (everyone has this in their life to some degree), I can now look at all the good (and there is a lot!). It is fabulous!

So yes, we are still going through a massive overhaul and transition, but life is good and God is good.

I just wanted to let you all know, so if you notice a different "tone" in my upcoming posts, that is why. Joy my friends, beautiful wonderful joy!! Praise the Lord!

"That's how much I love you!"

This morning Austin was playing with EJ and this is what he said.
"You are SO cute I want to buy a big tank and put you in it and have you be my creature! THAT'S how much I love you!!"

That's a lot of love right there!

Easton Joseph is SIX months old!

Well, well, well
Someone is growing up!

I can not believe my little miracle babe is now six months old! He has grown and changed so very much over the last few months.
He can sit alone for a few moments, he is almost crawling and can scoot and roll anywhere he wants, his tooth is so very close to coming in (I can see the white under the gum now!), he is eating three times a day, he hates green beans, he loves carrots and peas, he loves music and watching his daddy and little brother play, he doesn't like sleep so much but gets horribly cranky is he doesn't sleep, he talks and yells and coos, he snuggles and he is fiercely independent already. Sigh....

He wears anywhere from size 6-9 month to 12 month clothing. He is starting to nurse a little less now, except when he stays up at night and wants to eat all night! He is changing so fast. It is amazing.

Well my sweet boy, Happy wonderful six months!

a few pics from today

Well here are the pictures from today at the park! I love our park!

Holding on

Well I realize that I have been absent lately. Mostly this is due to our crazy internet. It rarely works and when it does it is very slow. We should have that fixed by next week though, and I hope at that point I will be on more often.

So to update you all, we are still here. We still have a wonderful roof over our heads, a freshly stocked pantry and fridge, a car that has been fixed, two beautiful amazing babes, and no jobs. Still.

Financially things are not very good. Kind of horrible really. But, God is providing. It is so amazing to sit back and watch God orchestrate everything. I finally realize I am not in the drivers seat. It makes for an easier journey knowing I am not in control.

So we may not be "out of the woods" so to speak, but things at this moment are okay. God reminds me daily to not worry about tomorrow. Today I have all I need and that is, well, all I need.

I trust in the fact that the Lord who has been providing all along will continue to do so. I know He will.

Praise God. He is amazing indeed!

In other news,
My little chubster is eating three times a day now! It amazes me just how much he LOVES food. He really is like his Mommy! I also think his eyes will stay light. Austin's were light until around a year, but EJ's are lighter. Also his hair is slowly getting more and more red. Even his eyelashes and eyebrows are turning red. So precious! He is my little ball of energy! He is such a good baby and I am beyond blessed to have him in our life. Every day he is a reminder of God's faithfulness. Our true miracle. And he is about to turn six months old...

Austin is changing quite rapidly these days. I have never known anyone with the passion for life that he has. He oozes energy and just never stops! He is brilliant, stubborn, loving, affectionate, and trying to now test some boundaries. He is walking a fine line of wanting to be independent but still wanting us to be there. It is an interesting age and I love every minute of it.

Today we went to the park across the street to feed the ducks. Just him, EJ, an myself. It was great until the geese attacked. Talk about aggressive animals. Whew!
Anyways, he had so much fun just throwing sticks into the lake. I wish I could see through his eyes sometimes. Life is just so simple and so sweet. That's the way life should be!

I love all my boys, even the old hubby! I am so blessed.

So keep us in your prayers if you can! I am praying for just the right job for Adam and I am trusting God has one in store for him. All in His time....

Thank you all so very much. For everything.
God Bless!
