Jace's 2 year photos and Down to the Last month

I love this little guy! He has brought so much joy to us the last 2 years and it gets better every day. Nate and I have had to learn and grow in many ways as we have "attempted" parenthood together but it has truly been the greatest blessing of our lives. Here's to you Jace and a wonderful 2 years of life.

Here we go.... down to the last month of pregnancy. Are we ready for this???? Hmmmm... well we are excited to meet this new little guy but we still don't have a name picked out, I have a long list of to-do's before he gets here and little energy to do them, and... honestly, some days (like when Jace is on his less than best behavior) I feel a bit terrified about becoming a mother of 2. I'm worried I won't be able to handle everything. I know it will all work out eventually because is pretty much just has to but it still scares me some days. Ready or not, another beautiful child will be coming to us soon!

4th of July Weekend

A couple nights before the 4th, our neighborhood set off fire works. Jace nearly fell asleep on our driveway while we waited for them to start.
We went to the parade on the morning of the 4th. Jace was most excited when the horses went by.

We spent the day at Grandma and Grandpa's house eating and playing in the water. Jace had a blast with his cousin Kardynn on the slip-n-slide. We BBQ'd that night and watched the always amazing firework show by the river. Lots of fun!

Celebrating 2 years!

Jace recently had his second birthday (Wow! I can't believe he is 2!)! We had a really fun day planned for him on his birthday but he caught a 24 hour flu and spent the day throwing up instead. Poor little guy! We had a small celebration for him the following week. He was spoiled rotten by all of the family (Nate and I had saved our gift for last and we almost put it back in the closet because we thought he had gotten way too much already.) Thanks to everyone for helping Jace to have a wonderful birthday!
