Well Visit (at 2 months)

He's doing great!!

Get this... 15 lbs
And almost two feet long!
23 & 3/4 "

And his little hips are fine.  We had to go to ScottishRite Children's Hospital of Atl for a hip ultrasound because he was born in the 'frank breech' position (he was in that position for months), and sometimes babies can have an issue with the ball joint of the hips.  He's Ok.
Oh happy day!

Passing of a Mentor

One of my mentors passed away over the weekend.  It happen so fast.  I have been in shock.  I don't understand.  And yet, I look to the Lord and He is my peace.

Julia was a prayer warrrior.  She had such a passion for prayer and for the presence of God.  She was seeking first the Kingdom and had a way of bringing Heaven and Earth together in her daily life.  Julia's marriage was awesome.  She and her husband, Tom, were BEST FRIENDS and true partners.  They did everything together and have traveled a lot since he was a pilot.  Most of all, they ministered together.  They set such an example for me and my husband of who and what we'd like to be. 

I plan to write more about Julia in the near future.  I also want to share with you something so neat.....

Julia's husband Tom prayed and asked the Lord how to greive and how to heal....  and the Lord inspired him to START A BLOG!  He said in the old days, you passed down stories, and he wants stories of this amazing Lady for his grandkids.  He also believe that he will heal faster thru this process of BLOGGING.

Happy 2 Months Old

Happy 2 Month Birthday, Sweet Baby
January 9th

You are such a sweet and content child.  We are SO blessed by you.
We love you SOOooo much!

Most commen nicknames:
- Baby ______ (first name)
- Baby ______  (first letter of your name)
and we joke and say will he always be called "baby"
but that's just what's sticking right now
- Pumpkin
(mainly Mama's little name for you right now)
- Blue Eyes / Mr Blue Eyes

You are nursing well.... gaining weight.... going bald, loosing your little newborn hair (still have the  old man band of hair around the back).  Everyone comments on your BIG blue eyes!

You've started talking/cooing more and your smile a lot.  Of course you still sleep alot during the day, but I have noticed a big difference in the past couple of weeks where you seem to be more awake and more aware when you are awake.  You started tracking people and objects with your eyes at about one month old and you now do that any time someone walks by or walks away.  You are so sweet and almost always content.
