Recently, I have been keeping check on Conor, Boothe, Sellers and Copeland Farley through my sister's friend's blog. I can't help but think..."What if that was me?" "Lord, would I be as faithful?" It is truly heart breaking to sit and read their blog. They update frequently with good days and bad days. They poor out their hearts with complete honesty which leaves me encouraged by their family and their faithfullness to the Lord. So often, I complain about my day or the situation that I am in and then I read something as touching as this and think to myself...these problems that I have are not even close to being problems. It gives me a new perspective to what I consider, trials in my life. I can't help but feel so selfish when I think back to my day to day, minute to minute thoughts and prayers. I find that after reading about sweet baby Copeland I need to be on my knees thanking God for my wonderful family, my healthy son, the time I get to spend with him. You know, God speaks in amazing ways and he is using Boothe and Conor to touch others lives. I write this post to ask you to pray...to lift up their family for what they call specifics. Boothe asks for us to pray that Copeland "blue spells" will lessen.

Georgia and I have become out-numbered. Everyone...meet Deuce, our new addition to the family. I made a comment a couple of weeks ago that I would like to have a German Shorthaired Pointer whenever we decided to get another dog. Well, low and behold, Dax surprised us last night with this adorable puppy. Deuce is 12 weeks old. He comes to us from Union Springs. His previous owner, bred his male and female and had intended to keep Deuce. Because of his school and extra curricular activities he didn't feel he had time to take care of him, so we got him!! I wish that all of you could have seen how excited Cole was to see a friend. Dax brought him to us and Cole squealed. He loved Deuce being on the floor with him. He loves his new brother!

This past weekend Dax and I had a wedding in Georgia to attend so Cole stayed with my parents (Nana & Pops). They cheered on the Troy Trojans at its first home game of the season. Troy beat Oaklahoma State 41-23. Coleman hung in there for the whole game. Nana said he was so good and was completely amazed by it all. He is preparing for the time when he hits the feild running. Our friend Julia made this adorable outfit for Cole to wear. I have attached some pictures for you to see. This is her little girl, Nixon. She and Cole are only a month apart so they enjoy being together. Thanks Julia for the outfit!!

Georgia is our 4 year old, yellow lab. She was a birthday/ graduation gift to Dax in 2003. She is so well-mannered and has the most loving spirit. She just gave birth to eleven puppies and has been the best little mama. They are two weeks old now and are the fatest things you have ever seen. We are giving them away...so if you are interested, please feel free to contact me.
Cole is now 8 months old. He is crawling, pulling up, and in to everything. He loves looking at himself in the mirror and thinks that baby he sees is the cutest thing ever. He just laughs and talks to him. It is hilarious to watch. He is learning new things daily and it never ceases to amaze us. For instance, over the weekend we heard him grinding his teeth.? Up until now he has only had his two bottom teeth. We thought there is no way he has top teeth yet since we hadn't noticed them...to our surprise he has both top teeth coming in. Our little boy doesn't seem so little anymore. He is growing so fast. We are trying to savor every moment we have while he is still our baby.
