19 Months!


I know it seems so repetitive but WOW! 19 Months really? How is that possible.


  • Oh my, your talking blows me away! Not only are you saying so many words: phone, door, toy, shoe, sock, teeth, to name a few along with the usuals: bite, yes, no, hi, bye, ball, Mommy, Daddy, Baby, Judah, etc. etc. etc. But you are saying sentences! Your first one that I caught was "We Got to go!" Then came " Mommy, where did you go?" "How are you?" "I'm gonna watch" "Mmmm That bite's good!" and many more!

  • You have 8 teeth!
  • You're smile is so sweet
  • Here is a surprise, you love music! You sing, dance, and are attracted to any and every instrument.
  • You can suck! Have I mentioned that in the blog? I meant to write a whole post on it. You have NO IDEA how exciting that is for a cleft baby!

  • You listen (most times) and follow instructions very well.
  • You are Daddy's boy. Another big surprise =) I love it.
  • You have the sweetest hugs and kisses. Rare, but sweet.
  • You can give Eskimo kisses! You love butterfly kisses and "Snug as a bug in a rug"


We spent a whole hour outside for this photo shoot. This little boy would NOT look at the camera! For anything! Grrr.... Anyway, I entered him into a contest with GAP. The odds of him winning are not very high, I know. I also know that God cares about the little things and you never know unless you try. My reasons for entering him are not just because he is so stinkin adorable. It would just be amazing to see our very own miracle plastered in every mall. Wouldn't you agree? =) God is awesome.
Vote for Judah and share with your friends! You can vote everyday!

ZoO!


My Trip To The ZoO

I met lots of animals!


This gorilla would pucker-up and kiss everyone who came close to the window..don't worry, I did not try for a kiss...but it was cute

My buddy Rue was there!






I met new friends too... "Raffs!"

Yep, we were that close!


Even closer!


I got to feed them!



I was hungry too..I told my mom "Bite!" (repeatedly..like the seagulls in Finding Nemo..) but the "Raffs" wouldn't share.

It was a fun day!

Mom put me in my car seat..and I was out.


So was my buddy


We love and miss everyone!

Life...insane

It has been way too long since my last post. Too long for excuses! You know, I'm still going to give you one anyway!!

Things have been so busy in our lives! Dad is starting school continuing his principal position, and taking on the 3rd grade! He will be an amazing teacher I know! I have been working on music, piano lessons, and that's right...trying to go back to school! If it all works out. Incase you are wanting a few more excuses, I told myself I would not post without pictures and I have not found the time to do any "mini-photoshoots"..not only that my camera is dead, I can't find the charger, and pictures with my phone come out blurry. I know, "Blah..blah..blah.."
Notice the picture above is pretty old..but AdOrAbLe! Things might get easier one day if I ever get an iphone...just sayin lol

Judah is 18 months now! WOW! I will have to do a HUGE update with lots of pictures soon =)
Stay tuned!!


*Disclaimer: "Soon" meaning within the next month...

Nnna & Ba-ba

Naina and Papa's visit




According to Judah they are Nnna and Ba-ba until further notice.
He has been talking up a storm!
"Night night" "Bible" "Giraffe" "Keys"
Although, I think my all time favorite is "alright!" He has been saying that one at least a month now..it's such a big word and he says it perfectly!

During a meeting at church, we were discussing hobby lobby (it was actually only said once) but he picked up the word "hobby" and has now added that to his vocabulary. I don't think he knows what it means. I might have to teach him what exactly hobby lobby is... hehe



We very much enjoyed the visit.

The mission?

To spoil Judah rotten.

Mission accomplished.

He now throws himself on the floor when he doesn't get his way and does everything except say "If Naina and Papa were here!"
I'm sure he would if he could



We love you Naina and Papa... Mom and Dad

Fingerprints



Never has there been and never again
Will there be another you
Fashioned by God's hand and perfectly planned
To be just who you are
And what He's been creating
Since the first beat of your heart
Is a living, breathing
Priceless work of art

And I can see the fingerprints of God
When I look at you
I can see the fingerprints of God
And I know it's true
You're a masterpiece that all creation
Quietly applauds
And you're covered with
The fingerprints of God

Just look at you
You're a wonder in the making
And God's not through
In fact, He's just getting started!

My son, I hope you never forget this song. The song I have sung to you since I first held you. Learned you. Loved you. This is your song. When I start to sing...

Just look at you
You're a wonder in the making
And God's not through
In fact, He's just getting started!

I choke. Tears flood my eyes. It's the truth! You are a wonder and God is no where near finished.

When I look at you with your hands raised and waving, I see the day you receive the beautiful gift of the Holy Ghost. Hands raised. Tears streaming. Trembling lips. The beautiful sound. And the glow of God's power.

When everything that fits snuggly in your hand turns into a microphone, yelling and singing not just in it, but on it with your mouth wrapped around (the calculator, hair brush, spoon, toothbrush...) slobber and all. I see you preaching to the multitudes. Speaking life into dry bones. Leading an army for the kingdom of God.

When you bob your head, and bounce your legs to the beat of a good song, I see you dancing, rejoicing for the King of Glory just like David. I see you Directing a mighty anointed choir into the presence of the King. King of all kings.

I see the day you are baptized in the precious name of Jesus. Hands in the air, shivering cold (unless you are fortunate enough to have warm water..I wasn't..but it was still beautiful!) The day you are covered by His blood! Born again.

When you flirt and smile, I see you loving the world. Holding the broken. Lifting your brothers and sisters to the Healer. Giving yourself to those in need. Showing the love of God to the nations.

I see you standing up for truth. Standing, when the world around you is crumbling. Standing, holding our Savior's hand. Being set apart. Salt and Light. They may burn, but they heal. Fight off and protect the body from disease. They also cause thirst. Let people see you, know you, and thirst for Everlasting Water.

Judah, my son, God has had His hands on you before your first breath. The fingerprints of the Master are all over you. The plans He has for you are not ordinary. You are not ordinary. Whatever He created you to do, it is amazing. You are marked by God. So whatever you do, do it with all your might, all your strength, all your soul. As long as you live and allow Jesus to work, His hands will be molding you, strengthening you, empowering you for Greatness. Rest in that. Believe in Him. With God ALL things are POSSIBLE.

Curly ~ Fries


The plan for the day was to see the Thunderbirds but apparently it ended at the time we thought it started. So, picnic at the park instead!



Notice in most of these pictures my child is cramming curly fries in his mouth

It was both exciting and disturbing to watch!







We had a good time

By the way, this gorgeous park is 10 minutes from my house..


Yep! I'm a Colorado Girl!
