Almost Two

I can not believe that in 2 days my baby boy will turn 2! It feels like just yesterday that I was humongously pregnant in the HOT Dallas heat wondering if this child would ever come out!! and hear we are... 2 years later.... back in SC.... with a toddler! What a blessing that God has graciously given us 2 years with this child and I pray for many more, yet know that ultimately God is in control of Tallon's days! Thank you Lord for this sweet boy, for his health, for his love for life, his deep boyish voice and laughter! I never knew being a mom could be soo much fun ( yet so very challenging!) I pray that we will raise Tallon in a way that Pleases YOU alone and that he would come to know you personally, love you and serve you! Give us Wisdom as we start down this toddler temper tantrum roads!!! I just love this picture ( and the one up top)!! My sweet little boy!


Our weekend is full and we have so much to be thankful for- along with Celebrating Tal's birthday on Saturday, we close on our home in Florence tom (Friday)!! so it is sure to be a busy weekend but hopefully I will get some pictures up of Tal's birthday party and our new home sometime soon, but for now.... enjoy these few pictures that I took yesterday as we played outside- Tallon loves to drive his car!!!!


Tallon contemplating where he should go next....
FAST.... very fast! He now yells "fast" as he takes off zooming down the street!
A little adventurous!

I can't believe he is almost 2. I love all of his smocked outfits!!! Do you make those? I have bought Kaelyn a few things that are smocked and I love that.

Hi! Your son is so cute! I am commenting to answer the questions you posted on my blog. This is Ashley Jones and I do live in Plano Tx. We have been at Denton Bible Church for the last three years but just made the switch to The HEight Baptist in Richardson. We were considering going to Stonebrier. I work a few miles from that church and know the area really well. I'm glad you and your husband enjoyed living here. I wonder if we have any mutual friends?

Wow, Tal is 2! I remember holding him at your apartment in Dallas and he was so tiny and fragile - I was so scared ;). He is such a cutie and I am glad I get to watch him grow up on your blog.

PS I saw your birthday pictures - I am SO IMPRESSED with your cake! It is so adorable!

What a cutie pie! He's definitely not camera shy although I don't think any child with a blog is going to be camera shy. :0) Happy Birthday to Tallon!

It is so true that we have to continually remind ourselves that these little blessings are only on loan from God, and we never know for how long. We have to count every single day as a precious blessing.
