Welcome to Wade's World where Jeremy and Amy are just the parents, Macy is the B-A-D dog, and our two boys, Jackson and Anderson are the real stars of the show!
We are Christian conservatives who love Jesus, our families, and each other. We live somewhere in the South where we love grits, say "y'all," and know that you never, ever wear white shoes before Easter or after Labor Day no matter what Stacy London and Clinton Kelly say.
Stay tuned for what inevitably lies ahead as Amy blogs about life in Wade's World.
Anderson wanted a superhero party for his 4th birthday, and we made it happen. Anderson had such a good time with his friends and family, and he loved his party. My awesome friend Kassie made Anderson's cake, and it was the perfect cake for our superhero. We so love our little man, and are so thankful for having him in our lives. Happy Birthday to Anderman!
Happy 4th Birthday to our Anderman! It doesn't even seem possible that it has been a whole four years since you joined our family. Time really does fly when you are having fun! At four years old, you are an absolute joy! You make me laugh every day, and you make life so much more fun. You may not be large in size, but you have a spirit that is larger than life!
You have been out of speech therapy for a year now, and you are doing fantastic with your speech. You regularly string sentences together that are 10 words or longer, and you love having conversations with us now. We are so proud of you!
At four, your favorite things in the world are superheros, and you love to run around the house in your underwear and a towel as a cape pretending to save the world. We love it! You want to do everything that your Daddy and Jackson do, and I'm pretty certain in your eyes they are superheros too!
You have come into your own amazing little personality lately, and you know exactly when to smirk at us, roll your eyes, and charge at your 'Bubba' like a little bull! You, Anderson, are one funny little man! You love to snuggle and cuddle, and at the same time you are 100% fearless boy! I have a precious stinker and sweetheart rolled up into one!
For over a year now, one of the first things you say when we pick you up from school is, "I missed you all day!" Well Anderson, I miss you all day too, and I'm so lucky that of all the babies in the world, that God picked me to be your Mama. Happy 4th Birthday, Anderson. I love you to the moon and back!
We had Jackson's closing ceremonies the other night for his baseball season. He played first base for the Phillies and ended up with 8th home runs this season, and a career total of 20 home runs! Jackson's coach was Scott Snow again, and I hope we get him again next year. He is a great coach, and he has taught Jackson so much about the sport. It was wonderful season filled with nothing but good sportsmanship from the players, coaches and parents. We couldn't have asked for a better time. Enjoy the pics!
So it's been forever and a day since I blogged, but I'm back! We are officially done with 3rd grade (more on that tomorrow), finished with baseball for the season, and as of last night, finished with missions for the summer.
Whoooo-hooooo! Welcome to summer!
Except that Jeremy broke his hand on Tuesday night.
He slipped on some water that Macy had dripped on the kitchen floor, and slammed his left hand into the door frame of our bedroom. He toughed it out on Tuesday night thinking that maybe it was a deep bruise, but by Wednesday morning it was super swollen and so painful that Jeremy couldn't move it.
I took him to the doctor and he was diagnosed with a boxer's fracture. You can see it on the left side of his x-ray below. It's the black streak in the middle of the bone between the bottom of his pinky and his wrist.
He was put in a gutter cast (which he can take off as needed), and
will follow up with another x-ray in 2 weeks. Thankfully it was a clean
break, and no visit to an orthopedic was necessary. It wasn't exactly how we wanted to start the summer off, but it could have been much worse. We have a beach trip scheduled for the end of June, so we are hoping he will be 100% by then. He has been a trooper, but it is no fun having a broken bone. Please keep him in your prayers.
We had such a great weekend! Jeremy's parents came in from Hattiesburg, MS to watch Jackson's baseball game on Friday night, and Jackson ended up making his 6th home run of the season! His team lost the game, but we were so proud of our ball player! Saturday morning Gigi and I got up with the boys and went to pick strawberries, and they were so good! We finished almost 2 full buckets this weekend. Strawberries from Wal-Mart can't compare to strawberries picked right off the bush! Saturday afternoon we headed to go watch the Montgomery Biscuits and see Jackson be the Alfa Honorary Bat Kid of the game. This is his 3rd time, and he always has such a good time. He gets to play catch on the field before the game and throw out the first pitch. He did great and we had a wonderful time at the game. It was so nice getting to spend some quality time with Papa and Gigi, and the boys were in heaven!
Sunday after church the boys and I headed to Kellyn and Jason's lake house and spent the afternoon swimming, boating and tubing. It was the perfect end to a wonderful weekend, and Anderson was so worn out from all the fun that he fell asleep on the ride home with a 1/2 eaten chocolate doughnut in his hands. I call that a success!
