We have hands!

I am such a paranoid mother. For about the past 2 weeks, I have been truly concerned about how little Jaxon uses his arms and hands. So, just within the past 2 days, he has discovered his hands and it just amazes me everytime I see him staring at them and clasping them together. It's so cute. I just imagine him thinking to himself "What are these things?" He stares at them with such interest and wonder!

That is my child!

Ever since Jaxon was born, all I have heard is how much Jaxon looks like his dad...I have vehemently agreed...UNTIL I decided to put baby pictures side by side. I think he more resembles myself now that I see the baby pictures! What do you honestly think?

My 3 month old!

Jaxon is 3 months old today!!

I can't believe it. I'm such a proud mom. He is growing so big and chunky. We just moved into 6 month clothing. I'm not sure if baby clothes just run small or if he's just big for his age. His dad just chooses to believe that he has an abnormally large boy...typical dad. :)

Sock Monkey '08-'09

We will miss you. You were only with us for a short while but we enjoyed you while it lasted. Our insensitive dogs thought it would be fun to chew on you. You could have been a lifelong friend for Jaxon. We are so sorry for our loss.

We will never forget you.

(Sorry, Nikki)

'Thankful' doesn't even begin to describe it.

"i just wanted to let you know that im ok. we got hit yesterday. im going to be calling you later tonight when you get up. i love you so so much. kiss my son."

This was the message I woke up to today. It is the epitome of the military wife's worst nightmare.

I don't even know where to begin.

They lost someone yesterday. A guy that has been over to my house. I knew him. This is unreal to me.

I'm so thankful that I still have my husband and my son still has his father. Thankful doesn't even being to describe the way I am feeling right now. It very well could have been Ron. He was so close to it...he was up close and personal with all of the chaos.

I don't want to play anymore. It was okay when I was playing off this deployment as a business trip but this is a major reality check. This is not a game. I can't believe that I ended our latest conversation before this accident with a very sarcastic 'I Love You, too' because I was annoyed with him. That is how naive I have grown to this deployment, so naive that I think it's okay to leave a conversation with my husband that way.

Please keep Ron in your prayers, I think this opens up a very long list of trials and tribulations for him and his Faith...and our marriage.

Sorry for the dark post. My thoughts and emotions are running wildly.

Holy crap. Fight or flight....fight. Dear Deployment, I hate you.

It's been made public!!!

Ron's homecoming that is! It was in Fort Hood's paper yesterday and it's on his division's website!!!!!!!

I am overwhelmed with excitement, it's now more than just talk!

Little Pranksters

Okay so I have an App on my phone that allows me to call someone while showing a different number on their caller ID, change my voice and recording it. This is what ensued when Sheriece and I realized what we could do...

There is probably a better way to do this but go to the link below and listen...

Lots to share!

I had such a wonderful time in Memphis for the Holidays. I am so thankful for my new found love and appreciation of my family...I sure have been missing out. I wish we all lived so much closer but since we don't, I think it makes things all so much more special.

Anyways, enjoy the pictures and video!!
