The land will still be farmed until we move there. We'll actually make some money :)

So very thankful for Grandpa Matis-- his generousity, advice, and optimism.
So very thankful Brooke and Jason moved home for NYC.
Thankful for cousin Willie! We were able to go out with him in Broad Ripple... man, is he fun!
Big Joey teaching LJ how to play Casino. LJ's Great Grandpa Joe used to play Casino with Daddy Joey (is that too confusing?). LJ knows there will be many trips to Vegas in the near future. This is only the first of many card games he needs to learn.

So, I think it might be worth it to buy 2 car seats... one for each car.... really though??

This one is precious too... he found his feet last week... he likes to put them in his mouth... he'll do anything to hold them... it's adorable...
Even when LJ is confused, he's a doll!! He always makes this face... what a cutie.... I just love this pic!!
I would post more, but this blog system only lets me post 5 per blog... I'd post all 500 if I could. He just makes life grand, he makes every day special, he makes life so much better, he's perfect!
Who would have thought a few years ago I would be blogging about my first baby?? Not me!! He was a surprise, but a wonderful surprise. He's such a blessing... making every day special to us. We're so lucky to have him and when parents say they would do absolutely anything in the world for their kids... trust them... because they absolutely mean it... no questions asked.

I've also been able to stay in pretty good touch with my girlfriends from high school. With the occasional texts, random get togethers, and short phone calls, we manage to keep up with each other. I'm planning on going to lunch with Marcy Mayhew this week- she has a 4 year old boy, so she's gives me plenty of advice.
Lastly, I get to meet the girls I used to work with for lunch about every other week. They have babies around the same age as LJ. Hanging out with other moms has been so helpful. All of my friends have truly made me the person I am today. It's so nice to have other girls to lean on when things get tough... it's especially nice to go to lunch with them for the occasional gossip session- hehe!! Sloane and LJ are still getting used to each other. Although Sloane is 3 1/2 months older than LJ, LJ has her beat with his weight. HE IS A CHUNK!!! We took family pictures yesterday at Valle Vista Golf Course. We had so much fun with the babes. They did pretty well. We're all so lucky to have each other and live so close. I can't wait for the babes to grow up together!
Little man is laughing all the time. It's hilarious!! He still loves his jumperoo, and he especially loves rolling over. He had croup last week, so that was tough on the whole fam- but he's all better now... back to being an eating machine. He weighed 21 1/2 lbs at the Doc's office last week. Dr. Kidd likes to make that comment, "He still hasn't missed a meal, has he??" You know that's a big baby when a 2 year old got weighed immediately following him at
