Here are some pictures from time spent with Geniene and her boys, Eli and Gabe. We always have a good time. I think it's so special when children can grow up close enough to play with their cousins.

Notice here they are pointing to their mouth, nose and eyes.

It is no easy task trying to keep little boys to sit still long enough to take a picture. It was quite a riot!

These last two were taken by Aunt Geniene in her back yard.

3rd Anniversary

Yesterday was our 3rd wedding annivesary. It was nice to have it come within such a busy time for us. It gave us a break in the week and we were able to focus on each other. We didn't do too much, but anything that gave us a change in pace was special! After getting Jaron to bed, we gave the baby monitor to our upstairs neighbors so she could keep an eye and an ear on Jaron for a couple hours while Jeremy surprised me in taking me out for dessert to the Cheesecake Factory. I have never been there but have often expressed how I'd love to go. It was sooo delicious and special. I just have to say how much God has blessed me by giving me such a wonderful husband. I couldn't have asked for a better man or friend in my life.

Changes in the Boy

My little 13 month old is FINALLY getting some toophers and believe it or not, they are coming from up top, not on the bottom. Here he gives a big grin to show Nanna and Pappa, Grammy and Grandpa, all his aunts, uncles and cousins what he's been accomplishing these past few weeks. He's so proud.

We have been packing up our apartment gradually this past month and sending boxes over to the house with Jeremy every time he goes over to work, which is almost every night. Amidst all the packing it's quite easy to drop little pieces of something-or-another on the floor. Jaron, of course will find it and instead of putting it in the trash can, which is what I'm trying to teach him, he will explore the substance by putting it in his mouth, so it has been important to keep the floor well vacuumed. Jeremy and Jaron got me this handy little vacuum for quick, easy messes for my birthday in March. Jaron has watched me use it enough to realize what it's for. He's quite the little helper. Take a look and see.

Something most recent Jaron has been doing is sticking his feet between the crib rails and falling asleep. Notice his little John Deer sox Aunt Tiffy?
