About Me

My photo
I'm a 20-something from Georgia who has a precious baby boy and a handsome husband! I love my Jesus and all things that make the South what it is! I'm a 2nd grade teacher and feel like a lucky girl to get to spend my days with awesome 7 and 8 year olds!

My Whole World...

"Children are a gift from the Lord. They are a reward from him." Proverbs 127:3

I have never known a love like I have for my son. I am more blessed today than ever {also more broke than ever} but alas I'm rich in love! I look at GAB and see how he's growing and changing and  I am reminded of my purpose. My purpose on Earth is to teach GAB to be the best that he can and to live for Jesus. I have heard it said so many times, it's better to allow your children to learn by watching you than by hearing you. I couldn't agree more! Recently, GAB has demonstrated many things he's learned by watching his daddy and myself.
1. He knows EXACTLY how to put on blush. {Daddy=FURIOUS at me for this one!}
2. He washes his hands (minus soap and water) exactly like his daddy does each and every afternoon when he walks in from work.
3.He has MASTERED a duck call. Yeap, we live in the South! My husband is 100% country boy and it makes him so proud that his {almost} 15 month old knows how to call a duck and can effortlessly identify one. (Real or fake.)
4.GAB knows how to worship! It makes me heart leap to see my son raise his hands and sing. I am not ashamed to say, he's witnessed this and has picked it right up!
5. He knows how to "read" me a story. Jibber jabber or not, he turns the pages, points to the pictures, and laughs at appropriate times. What can I say? I'm a teacher!
6. When momma and daddy want to know if his cup is empty, what do we do? Shake it of course! Guess who else does too? Yeap, my boy! And when it's empty, he throws it. (Don't love the throwing, but I rest assured that he's brillant and will catch on soon enough.)

My list could go on and on bragging about my precious gift. Instead, I'd like to share some photos. This boy melts my heart....literally!
GAB loves himself some cheese grits! He can put a hurting on a serving! However, we haven't mastered the spoon just yet.

It gets me every time! Opening day of deer season this year, Greg pulled out these boots I purchased at a consignent shop for $2 (as play shoes...might I add) and they played in them alright! So much so, I had to coax GAB out of them.

GAB picked out his own pumpkin! Didn't care about taking a picture with me at all...LOVED the pumpkin patch though!

I love these 2 boys SO much. {Even though GAB is JUST like his daddy.} HA!

GAB and MLB. Best friends! Incredibly blessed with great family. These 2 are about 3 months apart and they are SO much a like. Rotten...for sure!
And last but not least...the hat photo. The weather is so crazy lately. 30 one day and 80 the next. It's a miracle we've all stayed pretty much well. This was a cold day and although he was still in his jammies, I wanted him to let me catch him in his new hat. He hated it, but I got a cute expression. The one that screams, "Mom, really?"

I'm so blessed....more than I deserve!
Good night!
