The Greatest of These is LOVE!

Perhaps one of the most beloved "Love" passages in the Bible, and one of my all-time favorites, I Corinthians Chapter 13...

If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. 2If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. 3If I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames, but have not love, I gain nothing.

4Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

8Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. 9For we know in part and we prophesy in part, 10but when perfection comes, the imperfect disappears. 11When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put childish ways behind me. 12Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.

13And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

Wishing each of you a love-filled Valentine's Day!

Those Pearly Whites!

Here's the debut of Johnathan's pearly whites. Aren't they cute! I thought I couldn't be any more in love with his smile when he had those beautiful gummy-grins...and then came these cute little teefies! Now I know that my love for this little guy's smile is only going to grow.

Laughing at his goofy Mommy!
Gooey little mess!
Reaching out for Dada...he LOVES his daddy!
Cute Chubby-Bubby!

Sleeping Beauty Baby

Look how I found Johnathan sleeping! Isn't he just precious looking?!!! I love all the cute positions that babies fall asleep in. They sure don't look that comfortable, but they do make for some sweet pictures. Here's my sleeping beauty baby!

My Little Love Bug

There is not too much to report since I last updated y'all on our sweet boy. There is however a plethora of photos that I have taken, and so this post will contain some of my favorites from the last week or so. Oh, before I get on to the pictures, there is one thing that I need brag about...Johnathan is talking! He can say bye-bye (which sounds like beh-beh), and he also says Bo! Go figure that one of his first actual words would be the dog's name...not mine, mind you, the dog's! Haha! Johnathan absolutely loves BoBo though, so it's not too surprising that he learned his name so quickly. Anyways, here are some of my recent pic favs of my little love bug!

Little Smooshie Face!

I'm pushing hard, but it's still not opening!
How do I get out there???
Trying to get Arden's nose!

10 Months, Wow!

Today is more than just the day of the "big game", it is Johnathan's 10 month birthday! It is so hard to believe that in just 2 short months he'll be a one year old! Time is going by so fast, too fast, and try as I might I just can't hold it (or him) back.

Aaron and I also celebrate our 8 year second date anniversary today, and the day of the infamous kiss...yeah, the one that I ran away from thinking that he was never going to call me ever again! Long story, but if you know it, you know that it was not exactly my proudest moment! Anyways, eight years ago (give or take a day or two), Super Bowl Day 2001, was the day the we "officially" started to date only each other...and we've been going steady ever since! I love that we've been in each others' lives that long. I only wish I had met Aaron sooner, but I suppose God's timing was perfect, and I am blessed with each day I have with my sweet husband.

Happy Super Bowl XLIII! And go (Kurt Warner) Cardinals!!!
