2 Little Teeth!!

I'm now a proud momma to a little boy with 2 teeth!!!!

After a little crying, restlessness, and his fingers in his mouth constantly, I checked Hunter's gums and what do I see?? Not one but 2 Little specks!! He was doing so much better since the 1st tooth came in a few weeks back and now my poor little guy is going to be uncomfortable for a day or so until this one cuts through all the way.


It's so exciting seeing new things and watching him grow!!
Praise The Lord for sweet gifts!!

Cake Decorating Fun!!

Happy Father's Day!!'
Hunter and I love you very much!!
Jarrod's First Father's day celebrated with a cake I decorated!! This was my very first attempt at cake decorating! I can't wait to learn more.
SUPER DAD- Meaning behind it is That I always joke with Jarrod and Tell him he is always the best at everything he does. for Example: If he goes Hunting he is the first to get a buck, fishing he is the first to reel one in.. etc
In Other words I think he is the BEST.. =D

I am finally able to get back into the swing of craftiness again! I am so excited! Our Life has been so busy lately that I haven't had much time to sit down and let my creativity go wild.
My friend Britney posted some of her latest art from cake decorating class and it intrigued me so much! She Informed me that there is a class that I can take right now and they are in the beginning weeks of it!! I have been thinking about taking this type of class for a while, but just haven't gotten to it. I'm so excited that Lord willing I will learn enough to make Hunter's 1st birthday cake with my impending skills.

Today, Britney and I got together to decorate and fellowship and what a wonderful day it was! She showed me some skills and tips on how to get started. I had a blast. However, my favorite part of the day was getting to sit and talk and just get to fellowship! I am so very thankful for wonderful Godly sister's to seek advice from! I feel so very blessed for the friendships I have!!

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

.Relaxation and Excitement.

Good Afternoon my sweet friends!
This last week and a half has been filled with so much fun and relaxation!! It's been such a blessing to say the least!!

Let's rewind a little...

Hunter Turned 9 months old. I can hardly believe that it's already been that long since I gave birth to our precious little man! He has been growing and growing lately. He has done 3 BIG achievements for us.

1. He started rocking on his hands and knees the day he turned 9 months old. He has been consistently kept it up also! woohoo.. Go Little Man Go!! Mommy and Daddy are so proud of you.

2. The very next morning he got his very first tooth! (bottom left) It is still very tiny but very much there! He wasn't a happy of a camper when it broke through but he is doing much better with it now! =D

3.We resumed therapy this week to find that Hunter is transitioning from the "rocking" to sitting! && Today, with his PT he successfully transitioned to the sitting position ALL BY HIMSELF!

I stand in awe of how the Lord is working in my little guy. I am so very thankful that I get to enjoy and see him grow! Jarrod and I enjoy every single TINY new thing he does. It's such a blessing to see how my eyes have opened to things that I didn't notice before I had Hunter. I realized that we took advantage of the "small" things. The things that are so small to us actually take many muscles and skill to achieve! I am so grateful to be learning so much along side of Hunter!

We also enjoyed an amazing family trip to Key West. It was so much fun and we brought back so many memories and pictures to remember it by. We stayed in one of the most beautiful homes right off the ocean, we boated Daily (mainly the guys fished), My Hubby showed how awesome of a "all outdoorsman" he was!! I am so proud of him, we enjoyed cuddling time as a family of 3, we went scooter riding, We got a parking ticket (yep, that's right. a TICKET on vacation.. We should have been looking at signs carefully),sunsets, smoothies, and so much more. It is definitely a trip I will always remember!

&& Our last Big events for this week

and are so thankful for is Hunter's benefit ride on saturday and Jarrod's first Father's day! I can't wait and am already planning a sweet little gift for My Husband! He is the BEST daddy and Husband, I want to show him just how special we think he is..

Stay tuned for the gift/craft...

Well, I am off to spend some cuddle time with my little man and make Lunch. I hope everyone is having a very blessed week!

A little photo catch up.

The Picture I just took for his 1st birthday invitations!

Rockin' Away on his 9 Month Birthday!!

Just about 10 minutes ago, Jarrod called my name and said "baby, Hunter looks like he is trying to get into the crawling position on his own". I was of course excited, but didn't really think he would just yet. Then about a minute passed and I turned around to see Hunter ROCKING on his hands and knees!!!!!!
Jarrod and I starting smiling like crazy and cracking up!! We are so very excited! It was such a super fast pop up to rocking!! Up until just about 10 minutes ago, Hunter had to be assisted to get into the crawling position and I might also add that there were times when he would straighten out his legs and resist that position!! Well, I guess he is getting tired of sitting still and wants to get into more stuff now!!!
Time to really break out the baby proofing supplies!!!

The Lord was so sweet to have given us this sweet gift on Hunter's 9 month birthday!!!
Thank you, Sweet Jesus! You are so gracious!!!
Our Little 9 Month Old

Okay Maybe I'll flirt a little first!
Getting ready
Getting up and ready
Look at me, Mom and Dad
Rocking back and forth
The Lord continues to show us that he is mighty and great and that he has no limitations!!!

One proud momma,
