Why hello blogging world!!! With vacation done and holidays over, let’s play catch up shall we? Ha, we recently got home internet (woot woot) finally, and now it should (repeat should) be easier to keep up with this. That’s the plan anyway. Hope every one had a great New Years! Below are some pictures from the last…um, not sure but a short timeline to catch my few interested readers up =) Enjoy a years worth of growing up in a single blog!!!!
Okay take two. Just about had this portion all done and I somehow deleted this bottom half. Wahhhh!
Here I go again…
More about RJ… RJ is very active and alert and smart. He’s such a sweet boy although he can have his moments. RJ loves to be outside and he is very observant. A single plane can not fly by without being spotted and/or heard by him. We had his second birthday party at the local skydive that also has a restaurant attached so you can sit inside/outside and watch the skydivers sailing in while you eat lunch. I’m not sure where those pictures are at the moment, but we had a great time. Simple and sweet. I even made a plane cake for him too (with the help of my mother-in-law). Hopefully I will find the pictures soon…I should probably print some too. Sorry, getting off topic. I’m an out-of-sight-out-of-mind kind of person, unfortunately.
Anyway, I may be bragging here, but he is so smart!!!!! This crazy guy can do so many things that amaze me! And his memory!!!! They say elephants never forget, RJ must be an elephant. If I tell him the plans for the day the night before, it’s almost always the first thing out of his mouth in the morning. Gotta be careful with that!!! Memorizing Bible verses? So far it’s been pretty easy for him! He knows about 5 or 6 comfortably! Brag brag brag, but I am so proud of that!!!
He loves music! He loves to sing and play mommy’s piano and guitar. Anywhere from hymns to the fun silly songs, RJ is going to be like his daddy, A.K.A. “The Walking Hymn Book” since Richard basically never needs the words to the songs! RJ must have his daddy’s brain! For that I am truly thankful!
RJ loves to be silly and run around and play with cars, trucks, trains and pretty much anything that has wheels. Occasionally he’ll calm down enough for a good book or an episode of Little Bear (a show I used to watch as a kid) Sweet memories to share!
This kid cracks me up! He is witty already! Some of the things he says are hilarious. For example, about a week ago we were at a friend’s house when RJ had to sit in timeout for about three minutes for having an attitude when he was told no. When I was reporting to grandma how he had been that afternoon I told her about his three minute timeout and he said, “It wasn’t three minutes it was three hours!” Ha! And he says stuff like that all the time! He’s so clever and silly! Much like his daddy! Never a dull moment here!!!
With all this growing up going on, I am trying to squeeze in all the hugs and kisses I can, because with this busy boy, I won’t get them for much longer since time is passing so quickly it seems. I am so blessed to have this joy in my life. He can be a stinker and there are days that seem like bedtime will never come, but I really am blessed to have such a wonderful, smart, kind and cheerful boy. I pray that he will be tender and strong, loving and wise, patient and hard-working, and most of a a servant of Christ.
As always, thanks for reading!
Praise God for his Goodness and Mercy.
