4 Months!

Photobucket

Slade,

Some how you are already 4 moths old. Just a short 4 moths ago I got to see you for the first time, hear your cry for the first time and smell your sweet scent for the first time. My life is forever better now that your sweet and smiley spirit is in my life.

You are always smiling!... ALWAYS smiling!

You have such a sweet spirit. I just love to hold you all day long and snuggle your cute chubby little bum. Now that your 4 months old you don't snort like a little piggy when you cry anymore. It was SO cute! But, you do munch on your hands constantly and play with you feet. I am happy to say that your Mommy is still your favorite pal to have around!

love , Mommy

Excuse me....

I consider anything that comes from strait from the earth is good and healthy for you. I consider if God made it eat as much of it as you want {in most cases}. Lately I've been "snacking" on cashews. {Really I've been eating them by the hand full...}
Heck! They're good and good for you!
Did you know...
About 75 percent of the fat in a cashew nut comes from unsaturated fats or oleic acid. Oleic acid is the same acid found in heart-healthy olive oil. Oleic acid is credited for lowering triglycerides--fats that are carried through the blood stream and are known to raise the risk of heart disease.
Than I found out... A raw cashew nut contains about 8 calories. A raw cashew nut has about 1 gram of fiber.
excuse me... I've been inhaling 500 calories worth of nuts a day!
who knew!
Just a little bit of FYI in case you wanted to know!

League of Justice : a witty name for a flag football team.
All great things have to come to an end. Aaron's nearly undefeated football team came to an end this week. He LOVED playing... I think he mostly loved it because it was the one thing he did that wasn't school, study, read, lecture and write!

we started the game like this...

and ended the game like this...
