Go Yankees!




The first season is coming to an end. We had a rocky start, but Jackson has made so much progress. I am really proud of him and I see many years of baseball in our future!

Grandma




How wonderful must it be to be so sweet and innocent? Jackson and I would always pray that God would take care of Grandma Libby since she was sick. I explained to him that she had died. I told him when you die you go to live with Jesus. He said, were does Jesus live, Dallas? I said no way on the other side of the clouds. We can not see Jesus, but he is our hearts just like Grandma Libby is now in our heart. He responded how did she get there, ambulance? He told me Grandma Libby is not sick anymore and I said you are right she is not.

I hope we can keep those memories he has of her alive! He is so sweet and innocent. I miss her.

My Grandma





I remember as a small child spending summers with my Grandma. We would rent movies, go to the mall, and just hang out. When I think of my child hood memories that is what I think of. I think of her, Granny, and their love and dedication to me. When I would go home or they would leave after a trip I would cry because I would miss them so much. She would always take me shopping as far back as I can remember. She loved buying for me and it made her feel good. My Grandma was like a mother to me. She was the one person in my life I could always count on…always. She was always there to listen any time day or night that I would call. She may not always tell me what I wanted to hear as she was a straight shooter, but she always had a way of making me feel better. My Grandma was the best person in my life. She never got mad at me, she never stopped talking to me, and she was always there for me. I am so grateful God gave her to me for so many years. I am glad she got to see my become Catholic, get married, and have children. I am glad I got to make her proud. I will watch my Grandmother be buried today knowing she knew how much she meant to me and how much I loved her as I knew the same from her. I will miss her so much.

God saw she was getting tired and a cure was not to be.
So He put His arms around her and whispered, "Come with Me".

With tear-filled eyes we watched her suffer and fade away.
Although we loved her deeply, we could not make her stay.

A heart stopped beating, hard-working hands put to rest.
God broke our hearts to prove to us He only takes the best

I love you Grandma. Thank you for being my rock. Thank you for everything. I pray you help me get passed losing you and I pray you watch over my family.

Until we meet again, peace be with you.

9 months




What a big girl!! She went to the Dr and everything looks great!! She still has no teeth, is doing the army crawl, and talking a lot. Her words are Dada, Buba, and Mama (yay finally). She will now hold her own bottle too! It is so funny to look back at Jackson at this age. He was pulling up on stuff and crawling every where. I can only get away to do her army crawl if I put food in front of her :).

Long time no post




Things have just started to settle here. Tuesday Jackson finally was back 100%. He is eating us out of house and home. I had no idea how hard the surgery would be and I am so glad it is behind us. I can already see a huge difference in him. He now sleeps about 10 hours at night as before he was sleeping at least 12. His nap went from 3-4 hours to 2 hours. When I check on him at night he is peacefully sleeping instead of fighting the bed. What a relief!!
Ava will be 9 months old next week, can you believe that??? I sure can't!! She is so precious! She still has no teeth and can't crawl, but getting close. She can say Dada and not Bubba (for Jackson). It is so cute!! Maybe Mama will come next? She LOVES food and will eat anything we give her. You would be amazed how much she can gum with no teeth!
