Beyond Measure.

Something happens when I look at pictures like these. HOW did THIS

Turn into THIS???

It seems like just yesterday that we were turning out the lights so he would open his eyes for this picture at the tender age of 2 weeks.

And now...oh those eyes.

One day, we were dedicating this sweet babe to our Lord....

And now he tucks his little hands under his chin and says his prayers by himself.

He was turning one and barely walking....

and now this.

Turning two with his baby fine curls....

now this.

How did he grow up right before my eyes? It makes my heart ache. Seriously, I hurt when I look at baby pictures of him. But then....
I kiss that sweet face and he says something sweet or hilarious...and I am thankful that he is growing, learning and thriving. I am blessed beyond measure.

School Pictures!

Here are Cohen's school pictures! This would have been the day that we walked into preschool and I said, "Oh Cohen, all of your friends look soo...nice....OH NO!!!" That is when I realized it was picture day. The under armour shirt and tear away warm up pants were NOT gonna do! So I ran at breakneck speed to Kohl's and purchased a new outfit. I returned 17 minutes later and only had to spend $23!!! It was worth it. Heather Robbins always does a great job!

And I love her.

There she goes. My girl. She is sweet and sassy. Quiet but strong. She works hard at school. Can't wait to learn to read. Loves animals. Has her own sense of style that I hope never goes away. The boy that talks all the time sits next to her and she tells him to be quiet. (I witnessed it myself) She is VERY careful with library books. She loves Spanish, art and P.E. She loves her teacher. She wants a bunny. She wants to name her bunny Brian. She is generous. I. LOVE. HER.

Janel. Me. Hair.

We had a great month and I CAN'T WAIT for November and December! So much to look forward to and be SO thankful for!
