How Old…

“Bradford, how old do you think Daddy is?”

B: “Daddy is 6”

“Close, but not quite. How old do you think you need to be to drive a car?”

B: “31”

“When do you think you will go to school?”

B: “I’m not ready yet.  I have to grow big so I can be ready and go.”

“What age do you think you will be big?”

B: When I’m 10.

“How old will you be when you get married?”

B: 3

“Who do you think you will marry?”

B: Hazel

“Who’s Hazel?”

B: “I don’t know.”

“How old do you need to be to go to college?”

B: 10

Apparently, age 3 and 10 are going to be big years for the B Man!


Sam is such a sweet baby.  It’s hard to remember exactly, but Andy and I both agree that he seems to be the most interactive with us at this age.  He loves to talk and smile, and coos and lets out these little laughs that are just so cute and fun.  Time will tell what his personality will be like…but so far, he seems to be pretty joyful and loves interacting with people.  He’s already rolling over from his stomach to back, so seems pretty strong and determined to.  He loves his brothers, most of the time…except for when they are poking him, waking him up, or disturbing him while he’s eating.  With each boy, I realize more and more how fast they grow and change.  So I’m trying to soak up these days with him as a little baby and have loved being a mom to another boy, what a blessing he is to our family!

These Friends…

What a gift we have been given in the friendships we made in college.  These are friends we lived with, and have walked through college years, getting married, and starting families all together.  Even though we live far, they are still friends that we stay close to, love, and cherish time with.  So, we were thrilled to get time with our friends, but so, so sad to see our friend, Laura lose her wonderful Dad.  I don’t understand why God took him, but feel privileged  to have known him and his family.  What a wonderful man he was.  Our hearts are truly broken for the Wheeler family and will be keeping them constantly in our prayers as they walk through this tough journey.

Some Pictures of our Time in GA

I’m having a hard time finding the words to describe our trip to Georgia.  We experienced so much joy while getting time with families, loved enjoying a couple weeks of the beautiful spring weather, had a great time celebrating with our friends who got married, and had a blast hanging out with cousins and friends.  Our hearts feel full, but at the same time also heartbroken for our friend, Laura and her family, who experienced such a tragic loss with the sudden death of their Dad.  It was a good trip, and I can’t imagine being anywhere else the past 2 weeks.  We are home safely and are already missing our Georgia family and friends!

Time with cousins at Gigi and Papa’s was so much fun:DSC_0093 Chaz and Mae look like siblings!DSC_0104 DSC_0118 DSC_0122 DSC_0126 DSC_0130 DSC_0139 DSC_0174 Sam wearing one of Andy’s old outfits:DSC_0175
