Making Everyday Memories

Some of my favorite memories of this year so far…

The moment Jackson was born. So amazing to have done this twice, I feel incredibly blessed.

Jackson’s smile. To die for, loving those double dimples.

The fun adventures we have experienced recently in our new neighborhood.

Jameson’s smile. Love that handsome little boy.

Watching my two sons bond. Even at this young age I can tell that they are going to be best friends.

And us. Our little family of four.

Getting Back To My Creative Self

Project #1image

 

Being creative makes me happy!

The past few years have been a little rough and somewhere in there I lost touch with that part of myself. Too much time was spent worrying about Jameson and making sure he would be okay. And not to mention five pregnancies, doctor visit after doctor visit, and of course all the time spent raising funds for prosthetics. But now things have calmed down and we are so blessed to have two beautiful healthy children, a new house and I am proud to say that Jameson is thriving and doing amazing!

With our new-found down time and a bigger home I can get back to doing healthy activities with my family. Some of those activities involve arts and crafts and ” do it yourself” projects! With a Bachelors’s Degree in Design, I like to think of myself as a creative person and I could not be more excited for all the possibilities!

My boys are still a little bit young for most of the projects I have in mind, but I love the thought of one day being able to create something together.

With that being said:

Project #1

With Halloween just around the corner, I decided to take all the pickle jars (about eight of them) that I saved this last year (I was pregnant ok) and turn them into colorful jack o’lanterns or rather “jar” o’ lanterns!

Back At It… For Now!

It’s been a while since I last posted. One word describes our little Davis Family right now- CRAZY!

We’ve had two major life changes. The first being (of course) having a baby and second we went and uprooted ourselves after spending nine years in one place. It all happened a few weeks after Jack was born. One evening we had a brief discussion about feeling like we needed more room and up and decided to move to a new home right then and there. Our old house was feeling a bit small with the birth of our second child and after an opportunity to move to a bigger place presented itself, we went for it! The whole move was last-minute for all parties involved and needed to be accomplished in less than three weeks.  In retrospect, we probably should have thought it through a little more, but the excitement of a new home had us believing that it wouldn’t be that bad!

Boy, were we wrong. Not only did we have more “stuff” than we thought, it was over 100 degrees most of the days during the move, two-year olds don’t help pack (they unpack), newborns are needy (lol),  power outages and storms caused us some damage, and surprise- many people were unavailable when we needed help. If I would have had the money to hire a moving crew, I would have paid them a million dollars.

To say the least it was a really tough move, but we did it and we love our new home! There are many great things about it. We have lots more space and there is a fantastic view of the river nearby. We are still in the same city, but in a new area which is much closer to my husbands work. Overall, we are so happy we did it, but greatly looking forward to when we can finally get settled in. We still have a little ways to go.  image

 

Jameson is now two and a half! He is talking up a storm and can count to ten, most of the time (sometimes he skips over nine and ten and goes straight to fourteen).  He has a new room with airplanes and he is soon to have a toddler bed and to be potty trained. We hope.  With all this moving hoopla and baby brothers it has been quite the busy summer for Jameson. But we have managed to squeeze swim lessons in there and fun times at grandma’s pool. He also continues to be quite brilliant when it comes to wearing his prosthesis. Jameson is an amazing kid with a new hair style to boot!

Jackson is now almost three months old! He is nearly 13 pounds and quite chubby and cute. He is such a sweetie who smiles all the time probably so that he can show off his adorable double dimples. He loves to watch and listen to his big brother play with Mike the Knight and tell him stories. We like to call him Jack most of the time. And just yesterday he started to giggle, even though he has been cooing and squealing for a few weeks now! imageimage

Jim and I just celebrated our ninth wedding anniversary! We have lots to give thanks for, we especially love our boys and feel so very blessed! image
