Baby Dedication

On Sunday, September 13th, we presented Jack before God and the church and committed to raise him according to His word and direction. We were priviledged to participate in Dedication Sunday with two other families that we just adore (the Scheuflers and the Clouses), which made it more special. Pastor Craig prayed for the Lord to grant us grace and wisdom in carrying out our responsibilities as Christian parents, and that we would be examples for our children. He also prayed that one day, our children would choose to follow Him, something we pray for often for Jack. We hope the Lord uses Jack beyond his own abilities, and that Jack will be passionate for furthering His Kingdom. Please keep us accountable to teaching him His Word.

We weren't able to get photos at church, but here a few afterwards in his little plaid outfit that I love. He's also wearing some socks that look like golf shoes (they have spikes on the bottoms of them). And yes, I know his hair is crazy, but there is nothing we can do about it.

Grandma and Grandpa

Doing a little catching up....
Grandma and Grandpa came to visit Labor Day weekend. They were so excited to see Jack and couldn't believe how much he's grown!! I think he's got his grandma's nose... what do you think?

Upstream DoubleOnes

Josh, Jack and I met up with my old college friends for dinner last weekend. Duane, Eddie, Jared and I were in the same Upstream group (on-campus bible study) our freshman year at A&M and have continued to stay friends even after college. It's amazing how God formed our group that year, and it is even more amazing how many of us are still friends after being away from each other for so long! It was so fun seeing these guys again, but I wish that the rest of the gang could've been there, too! By the way, Jared and Anna are expecting a little one soon and just found out that they are having a little BOY!! Congratulations guys!! And here's Jack. He was getting fussy so we had to give him is pacifier. He get's sleepy around 8PM these days. Which is great if we aren't out!

Sitting Up

We tried the Bumbo for the first time this week. Jack did so well and didn't seem to mind it. I wonder if he just doesn't know what to think about it yet. Can't believe how fast the little guy is growing up and developing! He looks so relaxed in his chair. Check out the drool hanging from his lip and all over his shirt!

Handsome Little Fella

I love this picture but hate that it came out so blurry! Doesn't he look like a stud? He looks much older than just 3 months old, doesn't he?

All Sprawled Out

This is how my little man sleeps... I think he gets it from his dad. Here he is taking a nap on our bed. It's crazy how much room such a little body can take up!Remember how I wrote in the last posting that we keep finding him turned around in his crib? Here's how we found the little monkey Thursday morning when we went to go wake him up. His head should be up at the right. How he gets himself that way is a wonder...
