Happy {and not so happy} Two Month Birthday!

Lee is two months old today.  These two months have gone by so fast and it has been wonderful.  It is so fun to watch him grow and learn new things.  I love his smile and the little sounds he makes.  He is such a blessing to Whit and me!

First try with the balloons.  How sad is that face?  We had to try again later!

"A dog has no use for fancy cars or big homes or designer clothes.  Status symbols mean nothing to him.  A waterlogged stick will do just fine.  A dog judges others not by their color or creed or class but by who they are inside.  A dog doesn't care if you are rich or poor, educated or illiterate, clever or dull.  Give him your heart and he will give you his."

American Idol

I LOVE this show!  This season my favorites are:

I'm not obsessed with anyone yet.  Last season Jason Castro was my favorite.  My sweet friend Betsy sent this to me...  Have you seen it?  Made me like him even more...

white cupcakes with multi-color sprinkles, the Florida Keys, dinner with laughter, funny toes, the first week of school, insulated food totes, watching others play, getting carried away, braking for rainbows, kicking off your shoes and splashing your feet in a fountain

"The Lord your God is with you,
He is mighty to save.
He will take great delight in you,
He will quiet you with his love,
He will rejoice over you with singing."
Zephaniah 3:17

I really like the word delight.  
To be delighted in.  
I am delighting in Lee.  
I am so thankful that the Lord delights in me.

6 Weeks Old!

Lee is 6 weeks old today!  
I took these pictures on his 1 month birthday but since I wasn't an official "blogger" then, I will put them up today.  
He is a sweet, sweet baby!

Gardening Bug

With this spring-like weather I have been bit by the gardening bug.  I am ready!  I planted my garden almost 3 years ago.  The first year there was Walker, the second year Leroy came along and now this year I will have to take a picture with Leroy, Walker and Lee.  That makes me very happy.

My garden looks nothing like this now but that is one of the reasons I love it.  Each winter I look at it and think there is no way it will come back out and, lo and behold, every year it does.  
Spring will be here soon!

My Newest Happy Thing

Lee has been here for about five weeks now and is a true joy.  He is the sweetest baby and has been so fun to get to know.  I swear I could just stare at him all day {and some days I do!}.  I hope that he will always know how much I love him and, more importantly, how much the Lord loves him.  I love this verse ~

"For this boy I prayed, and the Lord has given me my petition which I asked of  him.  So I have also dedicated him to the Lord.  As long as he lives he is dedicated to the Lord.  
1 Samuel 1:27-28
