Oh So Talented!

You may have seen how talented Rylan is on this post. Well he has stepped up his game in a major way. No longer does he need the hand of an adult to make noises. He has figured out how to do it himself! Don’t be fooled by the length of this video…he can do this for an incredibly long amount of time (as long as he has a captive audience). It is so funny how he now does things in search of applause or attention. I think we have a ham on our hands!


Eggs, Empty Tombs, and Love

What an amazing Easter Sunday we had today! Hunting eggs, praising God, and of course, eating good food!

We started off the day hunting eggs with Heath before church. Rylan got to hunt eggs in style with his shirt from Mrs. Bonny. He had so much fun finding the eggs! They were just the perfect size for him to hold, and shake, and drop…




After egg hunting and breakfast, it was time for church. Rylan, after a long and hard fight, slept through most of the service. Praise and worship takes on a whole new meaning for me while I hold Rylan. Thinking of the sacrifice God made for us when he allowed his own Son to die for our sins seems to mean so much more when I look at Rylan’s sweet face. I have a better, but not complete, understanding of the magnitude of his sacrifice. I am thankful that God loves us so much, and grateful that he rose again on that third day. Pastor D said today “Grace is free, but it wasn’t cheap.” I understand these words so much more since having Rylan. Since feeling love this strong. What an awesome God we serve!
After church we went to lunch and egg hunt with the Smiths.



We had such a blessed Easter. We can’t wait to celebrate Easter with Gigi on Tuesday!

Don’t You Ever Grow Up…

Oh Taylor Swift. You so get me! First love, heartache, mean girls, and now first born??

To you, everything’s funny
You got nothing to regret
I’d give all I have, honey
If you could stay like that

Oh, darling, don’t you ever grow up, don’t you ever grow up
Just stay this little
Oh, darling, don’t you ever grow up, don’t you ever grow up
It could stay this simple

These lyrics have ran through my head so much Continue reading
