Wow...time flies!

I apologize for my lack of blogs lately but I am swamped with work! I am taking 3 college courses right now and planning to teach Advanced Placement Biology next year, all while trying to be the best mommy I can be! Only 2 more classes and I will have my Education Specialist Degree....whoo hoo.  Here are some pictures from Jude's journey from 8 months to 9 months old. He turned 9 months old on yesterday and his personality just keeps getting better each day.  In the picture below you can see just how awesome he is!

 This is Jude on his 8 month birthday.  He loves everybody and does not meet a stranger.  He loves attention and will entertain you just to hear you laugh (I have no clue where he gets that from).  Here is is growling at me!

 This is Jude on Father's Day.  He was watching golf on tv, making Daddy proud.

 Most of you know Shane farms watermelons.  June was a very busy month and most of it was spent at the packing shed.  Here is Jude sitting in a bin of watermelons.  So sweet!

Here is my precious angel sleeping.  Why he sleeps with his arms up I have no clue!

 He loves bath time.
Here he is on July 4th, which was his 9 month birthday.  We are so blessed!

Have a great weekend!

Jude 4 months

I definitely missed my "update tomorrow" deadline! So now that Jude is asleep and he just celebrated his 6 month birthday I will upload his 4 month pictures! Jude was 4 months on March 4th and he hit a lot of milestones that month. Here he is semi-sitting up. I know he is just precious so please refrain from squeezing your computer screen! :)His 1st cousins Myles and Jackson spent the night with us and had to have their picture made with Jude Ellis. They absolutely adore him and love holding and playing with him. I remember this morning like it was yesterday. Myles and Jack woke up and crawled in the bed with Shane, Jude, and I and we played and played. Jack finally said "JJ will you fix us some cheese toast?" While I fixed cheese toast they took Jude back to their room so Uncle Shane could sleep longer and "baby sat" all by theirselves. I love those two!Mama with her sweet boy....look at those blue eyes!
Valentine's day! I can almost sit up! During months 3-4 Jude's reflux got so much better and we stopped his prevacid. He weighed 14 pounds and was 25 inches at his check up. He is almost ready for cereal but mama is holding off until closer to 6 months. He is laughing out loud and smiles constantly. He is the sweetest baby ever!

Wow..3,4,5 months!

I have officially been a terrible blogger...this is my first blog in 3 MONTHS!! I have been super busy with my little fella, work, and school. I am the crazy woman who is back in school getting my 6 year, while trying to work, and raise a baby (all while solely breastfeeding!). I wouldn't trade it for a second though.
My little Jude is 5 months old but I am going to update each night on the past 3 months. Here are some of his 3 month pictures. He started sitting "propped up" at three months and smiling CONSTANTLY! He has won our entire hearts.

Jude and Daddy on the couch Jan. 2nd. How precious!

This month mommy had to go back to work and was not looking forward to it (I will talk about that next blog). I grew so much this month and I still look like my daddy. I am still eating every 2 hours and mommy is strictly breastfeeding so sleep is a thing of the past! Here I am on my 3 month birthday...Jan 4.

I have such a cute personality and I love everybody! I smile all the time and I think my mommy and daddy are hilarious.

I have a feeling I am going to get my way a lot as long as I flash this smile to the lady with the long dark hair!

Being a mom is absolutely incredible! I can't imagine my life without my little man and I have learned to never say never! I said so many things I would not do with my child but boy does God have sense of humor!! Stay tuned for more pics and his 4 month update tomorrow.
