I caught them all together on the sly! Jacob was serenading his sister and baby brother with his guitar tunes! Just to catch you all up a little, Jacob began Guitar lessons at the UNM Music Prep school last fall. Well...he started out in beginning for the fall and spring, in the summer took an intermediate and after summer his teacher told him he needed to move into advanced. Jacob loves playing the guitar...we rarely have to remind him to practice and he has been known to take it into the bathroom to play...UHMMM! Very interesting! We are very proud of his skills and hope he will soon be playing with the worship team at church praising the Lord!

Happy Friday ALL!!!
I saved a few of both Jocelyn and Jacob's outfits from when they were babies. Now I didn't save them with the intention of having more children, but I did save them just for keepsakes. Well, since we have been blessed with a baby boy...Nathanael has been able to wear a few things of Jacob's. (Aubrey has been wearing some of Jocelyn's things too!) One thing I saved in particular was a yellow sleeper, it was one of my favorites! I now have pictures of both Jacob and Nathanael in the same sleeper. You tell me...do they look alike or what! Enjoy! Because I sure am!

I don't know if you all know...but I became an Auntie 6 days before Nathanael was born. My sister-in-law Desiree and I were both pregnant together, and now we are raising our babies together! It has been a very fun and emotional journey doing this together. Desi and I were both trying to get pregnant together...she suffered a miscarriage and an ectopic pregnancy, and we were recovering from a reversal. It was so special to go through everything together. My neice's name is Aubrey and she is just a doll! I thought I would show you some pictures of Nathanael and his cousin!
Nathanael 1 day old, Aubrey 7 days old!
P.S. He is still sleeping till 7AM! Praise the Lord!

GREAT NEWS!!! Nathanael slept from 10:30-7am!! Believe it or not...one hour difference is a world of difference to me! I can start my day at 7 no problem! I want to catch up a little on pics so I will post a pic of Nathanael taking his first bottle which was actually about 3 weeks ago. His daddy was giving it to him and he took it rather well! The second pic is of his first offical outing when we went to the State Fair and the last is of Jake, Joci and Grandma Viola at the Fair! Enjoy!

Wow! My little man is just growing up too fast for me! Last night he had his last feeding at 10:00pm. Usually he will sleep anywhere between 3-4:30 am, get up for a feeding and then sleep until 7-7:30am. Well this morning he slept until 6am! Most of you out there are probably thinking OH that is so wonderful her baby is sleeping through the night! Well...call me crazy but I am kind of not liking it so much! :( First of all it means that he is growing up entirely too fast and secondly it means that when he wakes up at 6am he is WIDE AWAKE ready to start the day! Lets just say...NOT ME! That takes me back to this 8 and a 1/2 years later business...Joci and Jacob are almost 10 and almost 9...They sleep in! But I wouldn't have it any other way...Nathanael is such a blessing. Today he was under his gym and he was actually batting at his bear. It was adorable! Well off to bed I go since my morning may start out much earlier tomorrow then what I'm used to! And before I forget...Joci finished up BETA Math today with 91%! YAY JOCI!!

Well...here I was so excited to journal my life online and whomever happened to stop by could share in our family's joy...well...uhhh I haven't been doing so great! Life has been busy as usual! Nathanael has turned 2months old since we last posted...(he is 10 weeks now!) he went to his well baby check up and weighed in at 9.8 lbs. He is growing beautifully and is just precious in our sight! He is very happy and has the cutest smile!! Joci and Jacob are doing well too! We have begun our 7th week of homeschooling studying US History! We have been learning lots about those human sacrificing Aztecs and the Sun worshipping Incans. Jacob passed Beta Math with a 95% and is now starting Gamma (multiplication). Joci is finishing up her final test and will also be moving on to Gamma! My poor husband has been working non-stop on changing over swamp coolers for the winter! He had 108 on his list and is nearly done! And this is only his SIDEJOB!!! Well I hope my next post does not take as long as this one because I have so much to tell about our journey!
