Mi Familia

Hola mi amigos! Yes, we are teaching Jet spanish. lol. Not really...not yet anyway. Not even sure how to spell anything I just tried to say. Pretty sure Aunt Kay can see to his bilingual studies in the future. But we did want to post a few pics from last week when Jet had several family moments with 2 generations of grandparents who love him.
Almost as much as we do... ;)


Here is Jet with his great grandfather - Papi's Daddy (Mommy calls him Geedaddy).
And Jet with his Papi (Mommy's Daddy).
Both Geemommy and Geedaddy got to hold Jet and spend some time watching his cuteness. :) Jet was very awake and just stared and stared at his great-grandparents.

Then made some silly faces.
Then Jet got an evening visit from his Grandmother and Grandfather Penny. :) What a big day of family gathering. Jet didn't hesitate to chat it up and show off his new baby talk.

Time for bed cute little stinker. :)

Mr. Brown Can Moo Can You?

Okay so my teacher clock is going off with school starting in a few weeks and I'm making Dr. Seuss references. lol. He's dressed in brown...and he is beginning to make noises that could be mistaken as mooing, so it seemed appropriate. :) It is funny how I am excited about the school year. It comes naturally I guess. But I will be playing a different role this time - as Mommy. Yes I am staying at home with my little angel who' s not big enough for school quite yet. :) But I'm sure we will be visiting our share of school between Mommy's and Daddy's schools to meet their friends and former students. Until then we will spend the last bit of summer just spending time with Mr. Brown. :)
Our Little Man is certainly not camera shy. :)
See the hand behind his head...yeah he's workin it. lol.
These new shoes are from my cousin Jane. They are camo and say "little trooper" on them. She knows how I am Mommy and Daddy's little trooper. :)

Being this cute is exhausting...

It's time for a nap.
When I wake up I love my toys. lol. This cracks mommy up.
Here is some video of how big I'm getting. And this is not how I ride in my carseat btw. :)

Okay so there's a story behind this video. This morning Jet was showing off his new trick from the last day or so - talking. Well...we call it talking. :) He makes noises that aren't crying or burping so it's a pretty cool thing to us. lol. So he's just cooing away and as soon as I get the camera out he stops and just stares at me. So I stop taping cause I'm running out of memory on the camera and then he starts up again! This happened 3 times and every time I'd stop the camera he'd talk, and when I'd start he'd stop and stare. My mom and I were cracking up. So you can hear us in the background as we laugh at this little jokester.

Fresh Air and Friendship

Hello everybody! Jet is back in the photo takin' business. :) We got to snap a few shots this weekend of our growing boy and marvel at how big he is getting. Such a chubby little thing! lol. He loves being outside these days. When he gets fussy we usually end up out in the warm air and it calms him down. We even went on our first trip to the park last week. Jet fell asleep in his stroller and after becoming surprisingly winded pushing him around, Mommy decided it was time to start exercising and get back in shape! :)
The most sweetest thing you ever did see :)
I love Mommy...
But Mommy is crazy. :)
Aunt Kelly and Me. :) She is such a good cuddler.
Later that night we had a great and wonderful visit from our good friends the Bassetts (remember the cool Jet blanket? Those Bassetts :) ) and Jet got his picture taken with Hope. David and I remember when Hope was born and used to hold her when she was just a baby like Jet. Now Hope is a beautiful young lady and holding OUR baby! We made it clear to Jet that he is not allowed to grow up that fast. :)
We love you Miss Kelley, Mr. Drake, Evan, Grace, Claire and Hopey. :) Visit again soon!

Lazy Dayz

So people have asked for updates but there is not much to update. :) The Jet-Man is doing well - he's got a pair of lungs on him and will holler at us every now and then for a while - but overall he is great. :) He has wonderful manners in public (we really worked with him on this. lol.) and has recently made a trip to the mall and several appearances at church. He is really working on his tongue exercises these days and trying to smile and even talk to us. He's actually more of lip-sync kinda guy - he moves his mouth at us but most of the time no sound comes out. There is an occasional "ahh" sound but he saves those for really important conversations.

You know I'll use any excuse to post pictures of my little guy - but life has been so unorganized and busy in a "not-sure -what-I-did-all-day" sort of way that I have even failed to take pictures recently! :) These are all I have - some pics David snapped of a nap-on-mommy the other day. Enjoy the dozing dream-boat and I promise to post more soon. :)

Happy 3rd and 4th!

First off everybody- this is Jet speaking and I have good news. I went to my first physical therapy appointment today and it went GREAT! The therapist was so nice and she was so excited at the movement and muscles I have! She said my feet and legs were very good and I only have to wear one special shoe on my right foot now (my left one is a-ok!). She says that this shoe will help my foot develop nice a straight with a good arch so I can walk on them WITHOUT HELP someday! That's right! Yet another diagnosis that I will be walking on my own...only time will tell of course, but we LOVE hearing that. Mommy and Daddy still can't get over how good all the doctors say I am doing. It so wonderful to see such obvious answers to prayers every day. What blessings...


Like my special Jet blanket? It's from my good friends the Bassetts in New York. They had it made especially for me. :) I can't wait to meet those people. Thank you Bassetts! We celebrated two very special July days this weekend. Aunt Kay's birthday falls on the day before all the fireworks but we had more fun celebrating her than anything else. It was also a very special weekend because Aunt Cheri in California got married! Weddings, birthdays and babies all over the place this summer! lol. We can't wait to see pictures of Aunt Cheri and Uncle Dan (yes...another Dan in the family! Jet will think everybody is named Dan before long. lol) at their wedding. Until then, here are some pics from the weekend. :)


Sweetest little boy in the world!
And his Daddy is nice too. :)

My Aunt Jan! (Little Jane's Nana) :)

Sleepy Baby


Ohh! Bright sun mommy! :(
The ladies love me! :)
Hungry Baby!

I love it when pretty girls feed me bottles.

We had cookie cake and games for Aunt Kay's birthday!

Hi Mommy.
Aunt Kelly Loves Me!
Too much cookie cake!

Prayer Request

I just learned of a family who is in need of prayers. They are expecting a little baby girl but were told just yesterday that something is very wrong and that the baby won't make it. Here is an excerpt from their blog. We feel a very deep connection with their sadness and are praying for a miracle. We know God can work wonders as he did for our sweet baby and we are praying for the same healing on Sara Kay McCarty. Please add this family to your prayers tonight and continue to remember them as they cope with something no parent is ever prepared for.

Earlier this afternoon, the MFM doctor called with the preliminary results of the amniocentesis. Sweet baby Sara Kay has a lethal genetic defect and will not be able to survive outside the womb. Please continue to pray for her, that she doesn't experience any suffering. Please continue to pray for us, that we have the strength to come through this most difficult time. Thank you for all of your prayers, love, and support.

Crying Eyes



Today I experienced something that I'm sure all mother's have gone through. Your baby screaming in the backseat of the car while you drive home helpless to do anything. Since Jet has been home I've been able to ride in the backseat with him while David drives. Jet has cried before but usually likes carrides and is consoled by a bottle or pacifier or my voice or something. Not so today. And this is what I thought.
When your special day comes and baby is born - you're scared and disoriented as the doctor delivers the most precious thing in your world...but then you hear the sound of your baby crying when he's out and finally here and it is the most beautiful sound in the world... and you cry too. Then one month later when you're in the car and your baby is screaming and upset and wanting to be out of his carseat...it is that same baby crying...but this time it's the most horrible sound in the world and you feel helpless and frantic...and you finally get home and hands shaking get him out of what now seems to be a baby torture device! lol...and you cry too. And you'll marvel how a sound can be so beautiful and fill your heart with joy...and then later on rip your heart out and leave you exhausted! But it's all because you're his mommy...and he's a part of you...and he and always will be.
Now don't worry...I will brave this storm again. I'm not going to just stay home and refuse to drive my baby around. lol. And I'm sure it will get easier...but never easy. Am I right? :) Jet- your mommy loves you and she's so glad your sleeping soundly now and hopes you won't remember this experience when you wake up.

Uncle Dan'l

Today we had a special visit from Uncle Dan'l all the way from Florida! This was the first meeting between the two so Jet got all fixed up and decided once again that he wanted his picture made. That boy is obsessed! lol. Uncle Daniel brought a little soccer set for "BJ" (Baby Jet - Uncle Daniel's special nickname :)) and Daddy played with it right away. Jet didn't even fuss - he shares so nicely. What a good boy. :) Okay...picture time.

Nice to Meet You

The Penny Boys

So here we are on a beautiful July morning. :)
