Our Exciting Weekend

Well, we had a busy weekend. Mark had made plans to go to his new deer camp this weekend to work on food plots. He had a great time driving the tractor and the mule. Of course, he got soaking wet and ruined a pair of jeans, but isn't that what going to the deer camp is all about?

In the mean time, Jonathan and I drove to Jackson. Yes, you read right, we drove five hours away, by ourselves. It was a crazy idea and an even crazier ride down and back, but we had a great time once we got there. We went down for a baby shower for one of my best friends from college, Jana. It was a lot of fun and really good to see her. It had definitely been too long. Jonathan spent the weekend playing and entertaining my parents. They had such a good time together. My parents had gotten Jonathan a toy tool bench set and drum which he absolutely loved.

We all survived, thank goodness! Mark and Jonathan missed each other and had a great time together Sunday night. Don't know if I will be making that trip alone again any time soon.

I love this picture from the weekend of Jonathan eating his McDonald's breakfast Sunday. He really chowed down on it. But what's neat is that we caught the tv with 'Jesus' on the screen. Jesus is always right there next to us, even on tv!

Our week back at work and school is going well so far. Every day is a new and exciting adventure with Jonathan. Of course, yesterday I walked past his classroom and saw him standing up in the middle of the play sink. Lovely, I know, but he was quite proud of himself. He has also realized which room is the PT Gym. When they are riding the bye-bye buggy in the halls, he says "Mommy" as they ride past. Makes me happy that he knows where I am and wants me, but so sad that I can't go get him every time they ride past. He is just such a joy to my heart.

Enough for today. Hope each of you is having a wonderful week!

Turtles and Buffalo

We have this turtle in our flower bed by the front door. Yesterday afternoon, while I was at church, Jonathan hit his forehead on the brick windowsill trying to get to the turtle. Today, we were back outside and he's trying to get to it again. Mark tells him, "That's a turtle." Jonathan looks at his Daddy, then at the turtle, then back at his Daddy and says, "Tu-tul." It was just the cutest and smartest thing. He has new words almost every day. It is absolutely amazing to us how fast he is growing. This pic is from tonight before bed, but you can see the bruise and cut right between his eyes.

Our other animal story for today is about the two buffalo. His Grandma has gotten him two ironwood buffalo in Oklahoma City at the Oklahoma History Museum. So now, every night before he goes to bed, he sits with us in the rocking chair saying "Buf-lo, Buf-lo" until you hand him, not one, but both of them. He holds them for a few seconds and then hands them back to you so they can go 'night-night.' Cracks us up!

The Start of Something Fun!

Well I have finally done it. Started Jonathan his very own blog. I know, I know. It took me this long? I was motivated by my friend Tenille's wonderful blog about her two girls. I wanted to have something for our little man as well. We hate that everyone is so far away and doesn't get to see him as much as we would like. Soooo, I thought this would be a great way to share some of the wonderful, hilarious, crazy, amazing things that Jonathan does.

Mark and I are so very, very blessed to have been given this gift, Jonathan. We want to treasure each day and praise God for the blessing that is Jonathan. Hopefully, this will be one way to share our joy and to remember all of God's blessings.

Thank you for being a part of our lives. We love you all and miss you tons!
So, bookmark our blog and check back often for more updates!
