2 1/2


Bryan turned 2 1/2 last week. I feel like we just celebrated his 2nd birthday yesterday. He is getting to be such a big boy.

Here are a few things about him:

*He knows about his pediatrician and calls him by name. If I tell him we're going to the doctor he says, "Dr. Whitaker, look at ears."

*If you ask him what he did today he can answer.

*I've recently started doing a bible study at church and he goes in the nursery like a pro now. NO tears for the past three weeks! Last week he literally ran to class. He got to the door and went straight to sit in the teachers lap. I was so proud. :)


*He's been coloring and making little cards in the nursery. Last week when I went to pick him up he said, "You did that?!?!" (That's what we say to him, so that's what he says.)


* I love when he says, "Did you heard that?" haha Instead of saying, "I'm hungry" he'll say, "Are you hungry?" But it's more like hOngry. :)

*He'll melt your heart by saying, "I love you, Mommy" or "I love you, Daddy."

*He has recently started adding "my" before mommy, daddy, granna, sug, papaw, and pops. "Where's my mommy?" So SWEET!

*He's outgrowing his 2T pants quickly.

*He's obsessed with the guitar.

*He's also obsessed with his new ball that he got for Valentines.

*He loves his sunglasses and wears them in the car all the time.


*He can be crying and you ask him if he wants to play ball (or anything else). He'll say, "Not yet, I'm crying!" The other day he was playing with his seat belt buckle in the car. I asked him what he was doing and he said, "I'm playing buckle."

*Speaking of, he got a new car seat. He was getting too big for the one we had. He loves to go, go car and sit in his new seat. :)


*Some of his favorite shows right now are Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, Imagination Movers, Wow Wow Wubbzy, and the Doodlebops.

*His favorite movies, that we watch over and over, are Lady and the Tramp, The Incredibles, all of the Praise Baby's we have, and Miss Patty Cake. Miss Patty Cake stays at Granna and Papaw's house. :)

*His favorite foods are pizza, spaghetti, chips & salsa, pb&j, and apples.

*We made a quick trip down to Phenix City last week. On Thursday we visited a place called Monkey Joe's. Bryan is very cautious so I wasn't sure how he would do on the jumpy things. It only took him a few minutes to warm up and he LOVED it! There was a 20 foot (at least) blow up slide that we went down together. He's not a fan of big slides or playgrounds for that matter. Not long after we went down, he wanted to climb the stairs by himself. He got brave all of a sudden and went down the slide by himself!! As he was getting off he said, "Oh wow!" He then went down 3 or 4 more times squeeling on the way down. So brave!!!


Please say a prayer for him today. He is sick...again! He woke up with a 102 fever after his nap yesterday. Now it's right around 100 with tylenol. We just got over the flu bug a couple weeks ago and aren't excited about something else.

Love is still a Worthy Cause



Have you listed all the times you've tried
Do you call on all your alibis
When somebody asks the question why are you hiding

did you feel the pull, did you hear the call
did you take a chance and lose it all
do you fear there's no collateral left for trying

Friend, I know your heart is raw
But love is still a worthy cause
Picking up and pressing on
Oh, love is still a worthy cause
Like the touch that starts the thaw
Oh, love is still a worthy cause
or the word that breaks the pause
Love

in the midst of passing bravery
in the face of our own injury
It's the constant generosity of grace
Find More lyrics at www.sweetslyrics.com

It's the beauty in the tales we tell
It's the pressing on and ending well
and the joy that comes when we give ourselves away


Friend, I know your heart is raw
But love is such a worthy cause
Picking up and pressing on
Oh, love is still a worthy cause
Like the touch that starts the thaw
Oh, love is still a worthy cause
or the word that breaks the pause
Love

I love because he loved me
when I had nothing
I love because you loved me
when I had nothing
I love because you loved me
when I had nothing

We took a last minute trip to the zoo on Sunday. We knew it would be one of the last warmer, sunny days for a while. I think we got there about 4:00 and they closed at 5:00. It was fun strolling through when not many people were there. Bryan enjoyed the animals very much. I think the lions are his favorite. Maybe the giraffes too. By the time we got to the giraffe's they were putting them in their cages for the night. Hopefully we'll have another trip soon. :)
