reflecting on 2010

i watched my little boy grow up before my eyes and turn 1...

i got pregnant with his little brother, Henry...

i watched my older sister marry the man of her dreams...

i went to Hawaii for the first time and loved it...

we started a new church that we really feel apart of...

i completed two women's bible studies and deepened my faith and grew my relationship with the Lord...

i learned lessons about friendships and realized who the true ones in my life are...

i had a BLAST going through all of the up's and down's with my amazing husband...

i got a new niece and know that I will have two more nieces or nephews in 2011 (maybe more?!?)

These are just some of the amazing moments of 2010. I can't wait to see what 2011 holds...i just know it is going to be amazing :)

Talk to you next year,

it's a boy!!

Josh and I are just thrilled to have another boy! We went in this morning with the expectations that we were having a girl and we were totally wrong! On the way to the doctor this morning i had a feeling that i was going to be wrong. My mom had two boys and then her first girl and my twin sister had two boys and then a i just thought that was probably what was going to happen to me. Actually-- i really have a feeling that i am going to have all boys. ok, sorry for the rambling...

Henry Tate Burfitt-- I am really excited about his name. Henry is my dad's middle name. My dad is an amazing man of God who I truly look up to. I was always told that i was a daddy's girl and it is true. We might have had our moments when middle school and high school came around but i got over most of that immaturity and respect my dad so much now. So it is truly an honor for me to be able to name my little boy after him. Tate has meaning as well since Josh and I got married at the Tate House! And i thought Henry Tate just sounds like a great name. :)

We are so thankful for another healthy looking baby boy. They said all of his parts are there and seem to be working correctly! Praise the Lord from whom all blessings flow!

Henry at 7 weeks...

Henry at 19 weeks. curled up in a ball...i think we woke him up!

He was a bit of a wiggle worm and was in a funky position. he was curled up in a ball and on his stomach(like his momma likes to sleep). We got to see his hand with five little fingers but he moved it so fast that she didn't get a picture. His heart beat was 147 and he is a cutie, of course :)

Josh got to feel him move for the first time the other night. I just love to sit there are watch and feel his little pokes and flips.

I hope everyone has a wonderful new year!!

Christmas part 1

We spent this Christmas in Alabama with my husband's side of the family. We were so excited for this trip since we hadn't been out there to see his parents house yet. They have a beautiful house with plenty of room for visitors :) Anne and I had some fun taking pictures the first day we were there. The lighting was beautiful and they have the perfect backyard for pictures.

I am going to split this trip into a couple of posts...I have lots of pictures that I want to share.

santa told us to bring the truck on this trip. thank goodness we did. jaks loaded up on gifts!!
the bed of the truck was full with luggage and gifts and this is what the backseat looked like at the start of the trip.

just another day and one year older.

so today i turned the big 2-5. it is amazing to me to think back to when i was in high school. i remember always saying, "by 25 i want to married and have kids." and look at me..married to an amazing man. we have a beautiful baby boy and another munchkin on the way. i am so, so thankful. that is pretty much all that i have thought about today. i have been blessed with an amazing family and amazing friends. i am so grateful for the true friendships in my life. so that is the word that i would describe today with...thankful.

josh gave me my birthday/christmas present last night. that boy loves me, i tell you what. when we bought our camera during the summer we said it was my Christmas present. but he surprised me and let me pick out a new lens for my camera for birthday and christmas present. such a sweetie :) so i picked out the Canon 35mm f/2 lens. and i LOVE it. here is jaks and i after i got it all set up...

we haven't done much today. i have done some dishes and tidied up a little around the house but for the most part i just hung out with my boy and relaxed. oh and i went for a walk/jog on the treadmill. and took some pictures in the backyard of my little guy with my awesome new lens. check em' out :)

this is jakson in his newest spot to hang out--the treadmill. LOVE this face, hah.

all he wanted for Christmas were his two front teeth. and he got them!

the boy and his dogs. pals for life :)

did i mention he is totally a walker now. he is over that crawling business.

Josh came home from work with some beautiful roses for me...he is so good :) then we headed out to dinner.
they took me to my favorite place to eat in Cartersville, Appalachian Grill. YUM!! It was a great night with my boys. a perfect ending to the perfect day!

tonight at dinner jakson did so great. flirting with every waitress, of course, but was just loving a night out with mom and dad. Well then i let him drink some of my water and it was all over bc then he wants to hold it and i wouldn't let him, so he threw a fit and just snowballed from there...

so we started to get all packed up and got the check to get out of these before he annoyed everyone in this fancy little restaurant. Well there was this little elderly couple was sitting across from us and the lady stopped me and said, "you aren't leaving, are you??" and i explained that we were trying to get out of there since he was crying and she said, "i wish you would stay. We are grandparents and we love that sound!" how sweet!! i just loved that. most people will give you dirty looks, so it was so comforting to hear someone say that! i just wanted to hug her :)
