Finally! A new post!!!

Where does the time go! Gracious!!! I haven't posted in awhile so I thought I'd share a few pictures of the kids and give a brief update on us. Since my last post, Jack has had several big milestones. He started giving kisses. He literally opens his mouth, pulls your cheek to his mouth, and plants a wet one on you! It is the sweetest thing. He also started eating a few table foods (orange jello, chocolate syrup from Mommy and a taste of Daddy's ice cream). He also started crawling - on his back! He scoots everywhere! I don't know if he'll ever grow hair in the bald spot he's created on the back of his head. :-) Brad and I participated in the Parent Commitment service at church on February 8th. We promised to bring Jack up in a Christian environment, bring him to church, and share the love of Jesus with him so that one day he can accept the Lord as his savior as we have. It was such a meaningful experience.

Mallory is growing into a beautiful young lady. What a joy she brings to our lives each and every day. She loves to sing!!! She loves the songs from church and the ones I teach her, but she has lately enjoyed writing her own songs! She has become famous for performing her songs at recent family get-togethers. I love the innocence of it all and hope it stays with her for a long, long time. She also loves to dance. You'd never know she doesn't take lessons by the way she waltzes around whenever music is played. The ballerina in her comes alive! She has also become a sweet little mommy to her baby doll, Joy. And imaginative play is her favorite, as Mr. Rabbit, her imaginary friend, is constantly with us wherever we go. Just yesterday she was walking outside and said hello to everything she saw. And everything said hello back. It went something like this... "Hello, tree. Hello, Mallory" "Hello, sidewalk. Hello, Mallory" "Hello, bush. Hello, Mallory." I just love to hear her play like that.

Here are a few pictures from the past month.
