WHAT A MONTH! I cannot believe how quickly this month has flown! Jace will be one in a couple of weeks and is growing like a weed! We have traveled... ALOT! We were in Austin the first weekend of October, as well as this last weekend! And, we will be heading to Austin again in two weeks to take the boys to see the Longhorns play! The first weekend, we celebrated the engagement of some sweet friends, Matt and Shelley. We had a great time and enjoyed spending time with them! This last weekend, Jacob rode in the Lance Armstrong LiveStrong Challenge Cancer Ride. He really enjoyed the ride and said the scenery was amazing. He was so impressed with the number of cancer survivors cheering on the riders... It is such a worthy cause and neat thing to participate in! We stayed with our friends Chris and Lindsey and had such a fun visit!

The boys are into everything! Garrett is staying busy in kindergarten and is doing so well. We are so proud of him! We love his teacher and he has made some great friends! He is such a great big brother and loves making Jace giggle!

My precious boys!

Jace is getting so strong and growing like crazy! After a scare with some abnormal blood work, we are delighted to report that everything came back perfectly normal! AMEN! He will be one on November 10 and I cannot believe it! Thank goodness it is 2009 and NOT 2008! Whew, we made it! :) He has 2 teeth on the bottom and all 4 top teeth are coming in at once! He is crawling everywhere and pulling up on everything. He can be seen climbing into laundry baskets, pulling himself up to the fireplace, and just today, I found him standing up, knocking on the wall in his crib! Let the fun begin!
tSweet blue eyed baby!

He climbed INTO the basket of pillows!

On the way to standing...

Up he goes...

Hi Mom!

October has been a busy and fun month and we are looking forward to starting the holiday season in November! Happy Fall, Y'all!


  1. Oh Kimmy! i can not believe how big they are! They are so super cute. I plan to snuggle them both while we are there for Thanksgiving!!! Love and miss you tons!!! Brando

  2. Wow!! Jace has gotten so big, and his hair SO white!! I can't wait to come meet you- hopefully the pedi will okay us to get out of the house a little bit in the next few weeks - oh, and I guess I need to be okayed to drive too!!

  3. Those boys define cuteness! Precious!

  4. Kimberly, Thank you so much for making me a Nanna! Pa and I are so blessed that we can't even fathom God's awesome love for our family! When I look at those precious babies, I can't stop crying for the thankfulness I feel to our God for answering our prayers again and again. He has had His hand on our precious boys from the day they were born. You are a wonderful Mother and we are so proud to have you as our daughter! I love you, Cheryl

  5. He's getting so big! Congrats for making it through the last year. You'll look back in a few years and realize how much it strengthened you, even though I'm sure you feel wiped out and exhausted now. But, the blessing of a happy and healthy baby overwhelms that exhaustion. How great is our God that He not only delivers us through these valleys, but gives us the strength to still be on our feet when we come out of it?!
