February Blog Post - 21 Months of Sweet Judson!

Today marks 21 months with our sweet little Judson and boy oh boy,

have we been blessed with the happiest baby boy!!

Especially after just returning home from Disney World this past weekend… this month has been nothing short of *magical*!!!

Judson simply and truly just LOVES LIFE

and brings so much fun, joy, and laughter into our lives with his silly, giggly,

and loving little personality!

We are truly soaking in and savoring these precious simple days with our little love at such a sweet age!!

We know that these are the “good ol’ days” -

that we are always going to look back on and remember

and we want to make the most of every little moment!!

Judson is such a country boy -

and LOVES to be outside

truly, he would spend all day every day outside playing with the sticks and mud!

We love to spend our days “exploring” out in nature,

and it is such a joy getting to experience the wonder of God’s beautiful Creation through his little eyes!

And with all of the daffodils just starting to bloom all around our home sweet home,

it is such a special time of year as we anticipate and look forward to spring just around the corner and lots of exciting things ahead for our little family!!

“LORD, you are my God; I will exalt you and praise your name, for in perfect faithfulness you have done wonderful things, things planned long ago.” // Isaiah 25:1

This “love month” has been, hands down, the sweetest yet and soo much fun with our tiny little valentine –

full of park dates,

play dates,

a beach trip,

Valentine’s day festivities,

a trip to Disney World this past weekend,

and all the “sweet” things in life!!

We started off the month with a trip to the dentist (for Judson’s 18-month check-up – a tad late haha),

working on lots and lots of house projects around the house

(stay tuned for some exciting updates on that front!!),

lots of hugs and kisses hehe,

afternoon hangouts with our best friends,

backyard shenanigans with my boys,

the sweetest valentine’s weekend getaway down to the beach condo (one of our very favorite traditions each year!),

Judson really loving giving mama a “kiss kiss” while we were down at the beach,

celebrated our sweetest valentine’s day yet, a big new haircut for our little Judson,

taking Judson to Disney World for the very first time (memories of a lifetime) with Wes’ brother’s family

(we truly had the most MAGICAL time!),

and all of the precious memories in between!!

…Now onto a little more detail on this past month and some sweet memories we have been soaking in and that I want to bottle up and remember forever!!

Our sweet little buddy got a perfect report at his 18-month old (a little late) dentist appointment earlier this month!! Go buddy go - he loves brushing his teefies!!

So we celebrated with a little pizza date at the yummiest spot – Merrells of Greer !! Judson lovesssss him some pizza!!!

And then we stopped by and checked out the SUPER FUN Century Park in Greer -

it is sooo neat!

Click here to see a little video from such a happy happy day with my favorite people!!

It just simply doesn’t get better than this - I love raising our baby boy with you, Wes! Family is our number one (& most important) ministry, and days like this are just so sacred and special - thank you Jesus!!

That same weekend, we worked on all kinds of house projects (the sweetest moment everrrrr when Judson went right into his “Dada’s” arms - as he was putting out new mulch in the yard - to give him a big ol’ hug - my heart literally was a puddle !!),

Wes had the honor of baptizing one of our precious BSFBC College/Young Adult ministry students - John,

and we loved getting to celebrate him afterwards at the big college ministry luncheon!

Judson got to go to his very first swim meet to cheer on another one our sweet college ministry friends, Sarah,

and lots of outside play!!

Forever thankful for this little life we get to live and love - thank you Lord for continually showing us more of your goodness all around us!

Celebrated February 1st with kisses from mommy’s little valentine!!

I could kiss those little cheeks all day long!!! #hellofebruary #happylovemonth #mylittlelove #mommyslittlevalentine

I sure do love doing this sweet little life with my favorite boys in the whole wide world,

and love chasing after Jesus with my very best friend, and the dreams He has laid on our hearts!!

His plans are good and it is such a blessing to raise our sweet baby boy together – and so excited for what God has in store ahead!!

Thank you, Lord, for such tangible examples of your love, kindness, and goodness to our little family in this precious home sweet home this month!!

Truly, some memories I pray we never forget!!

“As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.” // Joshua 24:15

We had beautiful weather for a play date to the playground down the street and all the backyard fun with our very best friends –

Kristen and Brewer!

These are the memories and these are the days!!

Judson and Brewer sure do love their mamas and are destined to be besties for life,

just like their mamas!!!

These are the days, these are the days, these are the DAYS!!!

I know we are going to look back and miss these days, so doing my very very best to slow down and savor these precious, simple days with our baby boy in our little fixer upper home!!

Thanking Jesus today and everyday that I am getting to live out the life of my dreams with these two cuties -

all I ever wanted and more!!!

What a gift this season is! #myvalentines #lovemonthgratitude

My heart is so full to the brim with love for my cutie Valentine boys!!

We got to go back down to our happy place for a fun little Valentine’s weekend beach getaway -

(one of our very favorite traditions since we got married)!! #valentinesweekendgetaway

It truly just does NOT get better than this right here -

our forever beach baby in his happy place (just like his “mama and dada”) with sand between his toes and running towards the water -

pure JOY!!! #beachbabyforlife

We have so much to thank the Lord for this “love month,” and boy oh boy, Jesus has been so good to us!!

“From the rising of the sun to the place where it sets, the name of the LORD is to be praised.” // Psalm 113:3

Judson’s newest favorite thing is to give mama a “kiss kiss” and my heart is officially a PUDDLE y’all! #mamasboy #mylittlevalentine #babykisses #kissesformommy #boymomlife #mamasvalentineforever

It was the sweetest Valentine’s Day YET with both of my cutie valentines -

starting with a morning full of happy cards (from both boys),

heart shaped Chick-fil-A biscuits,

frosted coffee, Valentines goodies, red roses and gifts from my honey - #sweetestvalentinesdayyet !

Our day was full of all things love & simple sweetness -

opening vday presents and cards (the biggest hit was the balloon, ofcourse!),

nap time snuggles with my little cuddle bug,

stealing kisses and shipping EMC orders with my little helper,

our annual valentines dinner tradition at Waffle House,

and night night valentines stories and giggles before bed -

these are the memories I pray I will always remember!!

Everything is more fun with our little Valentine baby boy -

oh how we love you so!! #ourlittlevalentine

Forever and ever falling more and more in love with my sweet valentines -

grateful this valentines season and every day of the year!!

Judson is obsessed with "choo choo" trains these days -

and the book, "The Little Engine That Could" - which was one of my very favorite books as a child, too! So sweet!!

Took our handsome football-lovin’ baby boy to get a big haircut and,

boy oh boy, does he look handsome!

Our tiny sous chef and little future heart breaker!!

Daffodil season at our house is so sweet,

and is the very early “start of spring” around here -

and my heart is filled to the brim!! #daffodilseason
