I am still alive and well, as is my dear husband and rest of the family! Thankfully!! :-)
We've just been living life and enjoying the blessings of the Lord.
Erin is doing fine with this second pregnancy and the little "peanut" (that is what it looks like at this stage) is progressing right along.
Jaylon is growing by leaps and bounds, is happy as can be and is still holdin' out on the talking for the most part, but he is giving up occasional new words here and there. Daniel said that today it was "shoes", as they were shopping for swim shoes and he told Jaylon to say "shoes" and he did!!! :-)
This past week, he said "cracker" and of course he says his other "normal" words that he has been saying for months, like "Beh-Beh" (that's me!), Papa (that's Ed), Mawmaw and Pawpaw, Mama and Dada, dog, cat, okay. Oh, and he does alot of animal sounds! He does a killer impression of a sheep!! Baaaa-baaaa!! I have it on video and plan to post it here one day when I am at the library!
So, I figure that he says the "names" of those who are the most important/needful to him in his day-to-day life and he makes animal sounds. That's pretty normal male behavior, isn't it? LOL Just kidding....just kidding!!! :-)
The picture below is of the little cutie pie sleeping on the sofa one afternoon tihs past week. I just couldn't resist taking his picture! :-)
The next three are of Daniel, Erin and Jaylon outside of Millstone BBQ, where we met for dinner last Sunday morning after church!
And this last one is of Jaybug playing with his Matchbox and Hot Wheels Tractors and wagons and blocks!
Regarding Summer Inman, the young mother who was murdered on March 22.....the Inmans have all been charged with kidnapping and the two Inman men have been charged with murder. Sandy Inman, Summer's former mother-in-law, has filed a motion saying that she was insane when the crimes were committed and is trying competent to stand trial.
The young man who was the arresting office and also the one who interrogated Sandy, has said she will never get by with this plea. The legal proceedings will just be slowed and delayed further by these legal acrobatics.
Summer's parents and her three little ones are doing amazingly well and we know that it is because of the strength and grace of the Lord working in their behalf.
An autopsy report and recent details of the investigation and charges was in our local paper last week and can be read HERE.
It is still so difficult to comprehend that people are capable of such horrendous acts, but indeed they are.
So many people, myself included, had been praying that the Inman's would agree to a plea-deal, because we were hoping to spare the Cook's a lengthy, detailed trial to contend with, but it is not to be. At least, not at this point.
We covet your continued prayers for Summer's children and parents.
Well, it is getting a bit late this Saturday evening and I must be going to bed.
Thanks so much to those of you who still frequent my blog.
I always have the intention of blogging more but it just never seems to come to fruition.
There's so much I want to blog about and hopefully will manage to do in time.
I hope you are having an awesome spring wherever in this wonderful world you are!! :-)
