Jordyn's New Best Friend

Couldn't wait for it to stop raining so we could take Macie for a walk outside
But we don't need to be outside to walk Macie. She has been doing this most of the day! Macie is being a good sport about it! Jordyn even held Macie on her leash while she sat on the potty. She was done of course by the time I got the cameraShe is making sure Macie is well fed at all times. No, we didn't get a new dog....Macie is Andrew & Tiffany's dog and we are dog sitting for her. Jordyn is not going to be too happy about giving her back though!
Andrew & Tiffany, you can rest assured that Macie is going to be good with your new baby! She has been more than patient with Jordyn and Jace!

Jace's 1st Haircut...or trim

I forgot to post this but a couple of weeks ago Jace had his 1st hair trim. I can't call it a haircut just yet! My mom and Amber did it for me while I was at work. I had been trying to do it myself for some time and after several failed attempts and nearly cutting my poor boy, I gave up. He just had a trim around his ears and across the back.
Isn't he handsome???

Weekend at the Cottage

Last weekend, we had a good time with friends and family at Jer's parent's cottage. Even though the weather was cool and wet we still had a good time!

This past weekend, August 2, Jordyn celebrated her 2nd birthday. We celebrated with the Kraker family at Baldwin Oaks and with the Dirette family at home. Jordyn was more excited for cake than she was for presents! I can't believe how quickly 2 years have passed or how "grown up" Jordyn is already. I am truly blessed and thankful to be a stay at home mom so that I haven't had to miss a moment!!

Jordyn is learning new things so fast that I can hardly keep up with her. Every day she surprises me with something new. She is now putting full sentences together and talks non-stop. She gives me a running play by play of everything she is doing all day long and makes me repeat back to her whatever she says. She is very particular and everything needs to be done in a certain order or put back a certain way (hmmmm.....where does she get that from?) Jordyn loves to dance; we spend A LOT of time doing this...hey, at least I'm getting a work-out. She loves the water, talking walks with her baby doll, watching Barney, and having tea parties. She is also very proud that she sits in a big girl chair now to eat and eats all by herself. Jordyn also went "poopie" on her potty today for the first time. She is VERY proud of herself and wants to tell everyone what she did and that she "got candy". Big milestone since she has been refusing to even sit on the potty!

Jordyn is also a very good big sister to her brother Jace. She runs to his room as soon as he wakes up, brings him toys or his pipe whenever he cries, and always makes sure he is included. Whenever we do something she says, "And Jacey (she calls him Jacey) too!" If we leave him at grandma's to play, she asks for him the whole ride home.

Jordyn, we love you so much!! We thank God for every day he has blessed us with you and pray for many more days. Thank you for blessing our lives!!
