I've posted before about my dear friend, April, and her husband Mike's battle with cancer. They just heard some tough news yesterday and need PRAYER. Here's a link to her blog, and you can keep up with Mike's caringbridge site from there. PLEASE pray for God's healing for Mike and for strength for April as they walk through this fire. They are truly the most amazing people I know. I know they covet your prayers!

The bride was beautiful, the groom was handsome, and the ring bearer was adorable...all-in-all, a big success! Ford marched down the aisle as if he'd done it 100 times, got to the end, and then ran all the way back down giggling. It was pretty cute! Jenna said he'd done his job - to make
Pictures went pretty much like I expected them too, but there weren't any tantrums so we were happy! Ford did not inherit his father's love of having his picture taken!

you do many a craft (please notice the bat dangling from the chandelier - Parker's latest obsession)...
you make handprint stones for Dede's garden...
and you paint...
you have Battle of the Baby Booster Seats...
you listen to Joseph tell lots of stories...
you play in the driveway because when there's finally a break in the rain and you try to go to the beach, the wind blows the sand on these sweet little legs and brings on the tears...
More Charleston pictures to come...we actually did get to go the beach 2 days and we celebrated some major birthdays, so check back soon! Thank you Papa and Dede for another wonderful trip!

Ford turned 2 1/2 on Saturday! I absolutely adore this guy! The things he says and does make me laugh all day long. He loves trucks, trains, dirt and all other things boy. We were driving by a construction site the other day and I said, "Look, there's an excavator!" He replied, "No, Mommy, that's a front-end loader." Whoops! I've finally given up on the food battle and mealtimes are much more pleasant. He'll eat when he's hungry, right? He loves throwing the ball to the dogs and playing on his new playset that Daddy and Dr. Brad built him. We're outside pretty much every second he's awake. He has a temper that we're working on and praying about, but he's got such a sweet heart and is a very kind little boy. He is such a blessing and I LOVE getting to be his mommy.
This little angel turned 10 months on Sunday! His personality is so different from Ford's; while Ford is very high-maintenance (like his mother) and full of energy, Luke is the most laid-back sweetie I've ever met (just like his daddy). To know him is to love him - his smile will melt your heart and does mine multiple times a day! He's not crawling but can roll and scoot anywhere he needs to go. He's just content as he can be to sit and watch his blur of a brother! He's probably not crawling because he spends most of his time in the swing outside! His new nickname, bestowed by his Crawdaddy, is Mohawk, because he's got a strip of black hair on the top of his head and not much anywhere else! Jennie called him a skunk this weekend, but I think we'll stick with Mohawk;) He has 2 bottom teeth and eats anything you put in front of him. He's starting to have a little bit of separation anxiety, but what can I say, he loves his mommy! He says mama and dada and bye bye, and he just starting waving yesterday. I can't believe we'll be celebrating his 1st birthday in 2 short months!

Overheard after nap this afternoon through the monitor:
"Welcome to Moe's! I'll have a quesadida!"
I might need to start cooking at home more often.
