Prayers for Daniel

Just a quick prayer request: Some friends of ours from Missouri Nick and Kimberly(Crews) Dodd gave birth to a son, Nixon Daniel Dodd, yesterday. Kimberly was visiting her brother and his family in Connecticut and developed some complications and had an emergency c-section. Daniel was almost sixteen weeks early and weighed one pound and fourteen ounces and was transferred to Yale University Hospital. Please, please pray for them. I thought this would be the best way to get a prayer chain going on their behalf. I know God hears ALL our prayers and I know that the Crews/Dodd family will appreciate them all.

This and that.....

We have been very busy and I have so much to update about. I will start with last weekend and Makin' Music fun. We always enjoy MM and getting to see old friends. Hudson also seemed to enjoy the show too. He loved looking at all the lights and surprisingly he slept a little during the show.

Hudson is growing everyday and he has started pulling up and standing. As I type he is standing by the couch trying to get his daddy's computer!! He is all over the place with his little "army crawl". I think he could do the "all out crawl" if he wanted too but I think this is much quicker so he chooses it instead. I have a feeling it won't be long and he will be walking all over the place. I am not ready for him to grow up...can we please slow it down just a little?!

He looks so big standing up by the couch!

Waiting for me to get him out of his crib. We loweered the crib that afternoon! Just another one of the many changes taking place in our house. Another very exciting change in our family is that my brother and his family moved back to Tennessee. We are loving having them home and are enjoying spending lots of time with them. I am so happy that Hudson and Ella Kate will be able to play together. She loves her "Hudsy" and loves taking care of him. They are already starting to play together and I know they are going to be the best of friends!

Sweet Cousins:)

Thankful Thursdays!

1. I am very excited to announce that my brother Zack and his wife Cherith and sweet baby Ella Kate are officially back in Tennessee!! We are so excited they are home and are enjoying getting to spend more time with them.

2. I have also been given a business opportunity that I am very excited about. I am now a Tastefully Simple Consultant. I am very excited about this opportunity and can not wait to see what it has in store for me. (If you are interested in learning more about the company and it's products I would love to tell you about it!!!)

3. Double strollers- I borrowed one from a friend and I have loved getting to use it this week.

4. Clinique bonus time-I am not a huge make-up person but I love waiting until this bonus comes around to get my make-up and then a cute bag for FREE!!!

5. Friends- I am very excited about seeing lots of friends from college this weekend.

6. I am thankful I didn't have to cook tonight. Todd has class on Thursdays so Hudson and I usually go eat at my parents. Tonight was no different!!

8. I am so thankful to God for making all these things possible in my life(> He is so good!!
