Catching up! Again!

Hello everyone! It is I!
Where does the time go?! The hours? The days? The weeks? Whew! It's already past mid-March! Easter will soon be here and it is late this year!!
Daniel and I took little Jaylon to a doctor's appointment in Columbus last Friday (Daniel's Friday off). It did my heart so good to see dads bringing their babies and children to the doctor, carrying diaper bags and feeding their babies and taking care of the little ones. Though I considered Ed to be a real hands-on dad, I was always the one who took Daniel to the doctor and so on because Ed worked in Columbus and was gone for about 13 hours a day.
Daniel has a really cool looking diaper bag. I'll have to take a picture of it so you can see it. It's kind of hard to describe. *smile*
We ate lunch at Smokey Bones in Pickerington. I had fish and chips. Daniel about died! "Mom, how can you order fish and chips at a barbeque place?" "Well, that is what I want." *smile* They were really good!
Daniel and I are so much alike in many ways. He was talking to Erin on his cellphone and I heard him tell her, "About the only thing Mom and I have gotten done is trying to remember what we were saying before the other one interrupted us." Okay, now look.....I never realized that I have a tendency to interrupt conversation when something comes to my mind because if I don't I'll forget what it was I wanted to say BUT I am trying to break myself of this habit and so is Daniel but we were having a time of it last Friday! LOL
AND he runs late....Daniel does. Another fine habit he got from me! *sigh* Isn't it amazing how our children develop habits from us that we don't REALLY see until they are older and out of the house? I still have a tendency to run late but nothing like I used to. Oh, and we are procrastinators, too. Sooooooo, ALL OF YOU MOTHERS OF SMALL CHILDREN OUT THERE LISTEN UP!!! Start now instilling GOOD habits into your little ones! *smile*
I read somewhere that there is a plus-side to every less-than-desirable personality trait. For instance, procrastinators tend to do their best work under pressure, which Daniel and I both do. We can also get alot done in a short amount of time!
Now, the interrupting conversation and running late I've not found much good in. Let me know if you know of anything,k? *smile*
Here's a picture of Jaylon that I just took. He is growing like a weed!! *smile* He just smiles and coos and is trying so hard to talk!! He kicks those little legs and waves is little arms so enthusiastically, trying to get some sounds out!!

I love hearing about your relationship with Daniel! It is a great reminder of what is to come. Sometimes I get caught up in wiping noses and bottoms and more, that I forget about the real goal. Well, not realy, but you know what I mean.

I can tell that you have two special boys in your life!

It's amazing how much we can become like someone else just by being around them. My dad told me a lot that I was "Just like your mother".
I love the Jaylon pics. Keep them coming.

I'm glad I'm not the only Mom who interrupts to say something before I forget!

The OSU pillow is the perfect background for Jaylon!

Hi Mrs. NB....yes, Daniel is a good son, husband,father and child of God. We've have poured ourselves into him and God has blessed. I hear so many mothers saying they are waiting for the Lord to show them their ministry and I want to say that they have their ministry right in front of them: their children. What greater ministry could we have as mothers? And now we have little Jaylon here and the oppportunity to instill the things of the Lord in his little heart. thanks for your kind comments, Mrs. NB! ((HUGS))
Hi Sir! Yes, but often we don't see some our traits in our children until they are older and out of the house, you know? *smile* Daniel has inherited many good ones but some that are a little less than desirable but all in all, he's turned a pretty good, with the help of the Lord!!
Hi Theresa! No, you aren't the only one who interrupts but I didn't realize that I did it so much until Daniel told me that he inherited this trait from me and Erin kind of gets on him about it! (oops!) LOL
I'll have to get Jaylon all decked out in OSU garb and surrounding decor and take a pic of him!
Have a great weekend!!! ((HUGS))
