Big Decisions.

“I wish we weren’t gone so much lately.” That thought crossed my mind the other day and then I was reminded why we have been gone so much lately, which brings me to this post. Remember a few posts back (well actually a lot…

Dear Jesus.

Oh you guys, we are in trouble. Jackson is going to be the class clown. If you haven’t seen already he is really funny. In fact, the other day I said to him, how did you get so funny. To which he replied “Because…

From Heather.

Oh my goodness, y’all, I wish I could explain in words what it means to receive these writings from Heather. I didn’t know what to expect when we chose to have an open adoption but I can tell you I certainly was not expecting…

Me First.

I know, I have been MIA for a few weeks here on the blog. But don’t you all worry, I am back! We spent a great deal of time with our family over spring break and I even took three days off of work!…

Pool Party.

I know, I know, I haven’t posted in a while. It has been a crazy busy life this week. But let’s talk about last weekend. This last weekend we spent the weekend at a hotel with Heather and her family. First, who doesn’t love…

Not Ready.

Y’all I just can’t express the amount of love I have for Jackson enough! But this mama is begging for him to stay little. Don’t grow up my little hamburglar!

Heather’s Response.

Y’all, I cannot tell you how much I love this blog and the open dialog it has created between our family and Heather. Check out Heather’s response to Jackson’s gotcha day! It is beautiful and I absolutely love her honesty and truth in it.

Gotcha Day. Part 3.

I wasn’t planning on turning this into a 3 part series but how ironic that it is three! I also didn’t know I had such a love for the number three. Jackson has loved watching the movie Boss Baby. If you haven’t seen it,…

Gotcha Day. Part 2.

Jackson is getting older and older and is starting to understand more and more. Or, at least, he hears more and remembers everything. This is a blessing and a curse! We cannot have an adult conversation anymore without that kid hearing EVERYTHING!!!

Gotcha Day. Part 1.

February 27, 2015, a day just as important as Jackson’s birthday. The day he took on our last name!

Vacation.

I wrote this post a few months back while we were in Florida for a small get away while JJ was at a conference. Jackson still talks about this trip and his friend Mr. Marty. Which, Mr. Marty would be JJ’s principal, and thank…

Elon Musk & SpaceX

Today’s post is written by none other than my amazing husband and Jackson’s incredible daddy!!! History was made on February 16, 2018. SpaceX and its founder Elon Musk launched a partially reusable heavy-lift launch vehicle, called Falcon Heavy, into space.  The Falcon Heavy is…
