19 Months Old and Almost a Big Brother

Oh my little sweetie you are 19 months old today! I adore you so very much and my love for you grows with every passing day. You have brought me so much joy this month and I can't believe how big you are getting.

We have started routines at night of singing and rocking you and I adore this time. I usually end up tickling and singing and praying and we giggle and laugh! ITs wonderful! You are just amazing! You also love your cereal in the morning. You now have a big boy booster seat you sit in at the table and I get you a big bowl of honey nut cheerios and you use your big spoon and feed it to your self till its all gone! It is sooo funny! I love watching you grow into this amazing little boy!

You love to give kisses to EVERYONE! It is so cute! Even a stranger you will kiss! You are very good at self entertaining and entertaining us for that matter as well! I can't believe 19 short months ago you came into our lives and changed us forever! I never knew what it mean't to be a mom and to love someone so selflessly! It is beautiful!

Thank you for being so amazing and I hope and pray that you will continue to grow and love your family and your Lord. When we are in the car listening to z88.3 you sing to all the christian music and I just pray that these words of Truth of Love and of God will become engrained on your soul and you will always look to the Lord for guidance and for Truth!

I love you little boy and I am the proudest mama on the block! Thank you for loving us!

My sweet baby love!

Little boy Pierce I adore you! You are so funny now a days! We have started a new bed time routine because you are getting older and apparently need it. We now start getting ready for bed around 6:45 pm instead of 6:00 pm! :-) Here is how the routine goes!

6:45 pm -
Bible stories
Mommy and Daddy then sing praise songs and kids songs
We say our prayers
Than you go to bed around 7:30pm.

We had to start doing this because after vacation anytime I would put you to bed around 6:30 you would scream and cry hysterically and I wound up taking you out of bed sitting on the couch and watching Yogababa. So it wasn't worth trying to put you to bed earlier.

You still seem to get up between 6-6:30 but I try to keep you in bed till atleast 7:00 so that I can get a little more sleep. You lay in bed and sing and than once you have had enough you scream till I come and get you! You are a crazy little man!

Recently since we have started our praise songs you seem to know all the words to Jesus Loves Me and you constantly ask to hear it more and more. It blesses my heart and I see how the Bible says that Jesus cause the little children who follow with child like faith! I pray that you continue to follow and that the songs and bible stories that we read every night will be engrained on your heart forever and that you will grow up loving and praising Jesus all the days of your life. If thats one thing in life that I want if I get nothing else in life this is what I want for you and your brother Hayden! This is more important to me than anything else in this life! Your relationship with Jesus Christ so that one day when Jesus comes or we pass on we will enjoy eternity in heaven together! I just love you little boy more than I coudl have ever imagined.

Another sweet thing that you do is when we pray everynight you take both your little hands make fist and put them up under your nose while we pray and you are very quite! Than when we are done praying you say AMEN and clap your hands! I love it. I hope that this is something that we can carry on everynight with you and your brother!

Last night though you had some accidents. Apparently while I was at work you were playing in your room alone (which Daddy should never let you do this) when one of the big drums fell on you. It cut your eye! I was so sad when I saw it when I came home. WEll than we were playing and I was laying on the recliner because my feet are sooo swollen and sore and you tried to climb up to sit with me. You weren't even half way up when you just fell off back words and hit the back of your head on the tile. I NEVER over react but I spazed out when this happened! I was terrified for you I thought you were going to have a brain bleed. I was just so worried and I clung to you as you sobbed on my shoulder! Praise Jesus you are ok and nothing has been seriously wrong!

LIttle boy I love you so very much and I hope that your new little brother will be your best friend and you will both learn to love the Lord and now how much your MOmmy and Daddy love you! Thank you for being mine! I am more blessed than I could have ever imagined!

18 Months and Summer Vacation!

Oh little boy you are absolutly fantastic. I am so in love with you that it takes my breath away! I cannot believe you are already 18 months old. You seem so much older than you are, time please slow down!!!! You do the silliest things constantly. You have started pretending this last few weeks. YOu pretend you are eating something and you will even share your pretend food. It just makes me laugh. The first time I "Caught" you eating something I thought you really were but nope it was pretend and you just smiled at me. You also like to smell your feet! It is hysterical! You smell them and make an eww face! You started all these new things on family vacation.

We went to a river house in Daytona with Grandma Bells side. IT was the Dyal clan! YOu had an absolutly blast! You loved being with all of your great aunts and uncles and your two cousins Nathan and Jared. You also loved your Uncle Ryan and Michelle and of course your grandparetns! You are so funny and such a ham and people love it. You put on a dance and singing show with Nathan, you swam/floated with mama, you went out to the dock with Daddy and fished, you pushed Nathan and were pushed on your fire truck, you ran around like a crazy man and were chased or chasing constantly, you took 3 hour naps almost every day we were there, you ate like a crazy man and probably gained a few pounds, you pretended to be asleep when I said it was bed time just to get out of going to bed, and you loved the beach!

When we got back from vacation I was soooo tired so Daddy took you out to the woods to hike so I could get some rest. He said that you were soooo funny. It was very quite out there and you couldn't take it so you started making animal sounds! You would also point to the trees and yell tree. You are just so silly and pretty darn amazing if you ask me!

LIttle boy you are amazing! The 4th of July was pretty uneventful. We went to church and than we ate dinner with Grandma and Grandpa Bell. Daddy missed us though because he helped his parents move into their new home! ON the 4th you said the word cheese and even said "more cheese". You are starting to talk even more and we couldn't be prouder.

You are going to be the best big brother and I can't wait to see what this next year holds! I love you little boy!
