Six Months

I love this picture of sweet. Today he had his six month check up and is falling right in the 75th percentile for everything: 27 inches long, 18 lbs 5 oz and a head circumference of 17 1/2 inches. Hard to believe he is six months old.

In other news, Craig and I are taking off this Sunday after corporate worship to go to Swansboro for a couple of days. Im excited to be in Swansboro and get to see my family including Joey, May and baby Presley. Hopefully I will come home with some great shots for the blog since Speirs and Presley will be able to interact a little bit.

Baby Dedication

So the pictures aren't great...there were just too many of us to fit into the picture, but that's a marvelous problem to have:) On mother's day, seven of the children of 1.21 were dedicated to the Lord. Speirs West, Eli, Noah, Kanaan, and Madelyn Wagoner and Kate and Anneliese Shotwell. Such a sweet time for 1.21.

Happy Mother's Day

My first Mother's day was great! My favorite gift was from Speirs:) Of course he did have help from the wonderful nursery volunteers at 1.21: Marc, Dail and Cherith.

Splish Splash

Bath time is always fun...I usually end up soaked from all of the splashing that Speirs likes to do!


Speirs loves to eat. Enough said...just check out his "fluffy" cheeks.

True Community

I don't think that I have experienced or felt true community as I have these past couple of weeks with my friends and family at 1.21. God has poured out His grace over the relationships that exist within the friends of 1.21 and I am rejoicing in what Jesus is doing!

I realized how blessed I have been, living in Winston and being a part of 1.21 when my good friend Brooke (also the pastor's wife) gave birth to their fourth child last Friday. Their precious baby girl, Madelyn Joy, was six weeks early so she has been in NICU. Her life has been bathed in prayer and just to see and be with our 1.21 family during this time has brought me such joy. Christ is so good. Madelyn should be home soon and I am looking forward to seeing her grow up!

Also, we had partners night for 1.21 and seeing where God has brought the church is amazing. We are praising Him for what he has done, and trusting Him and thanking Him for what will be done in this city.

Joggers for Jugs

Today Craig and I had the opportunity to participate in the Race for the Cure in Winston with some friends of ours from Greensboro, Dan,Vanessa and Erin. There wasn't much racing going on on my end, Vanessa and I walked, pushed Speirs and talked, while Dan and Craig ran, but it was still fun! There are so many people who have been affected by Breast Cancer. Vanessa's mom is a survivor who we participated in honor of today. I must say, I loved seeing all of the people walking and running!

As a side note, I think that the Bullard family should get a team together in memory of Grandma Bea....We could have t-shirts made and it could become a new family tradition. I think this could go even better than kickball at Easter:)!
...the men miiiight still be able to walk the next day!!
