The big 9-er

Oaklee was 9 months old yesterday! She had her check-up and is healthy as a horse. She's in the 20th percentile for her weight, but like 50th for her height. Not that that means anything for her future stature, but it's always fun to found out the stats. Here's some recent pics of our little doll. I LOVE this little girl. She's so full of life!

Who Does this look like?

This is only good for my Fayetteville friends. Cindy and I came across this photo the other day and think this is the long lost brother of one of our Grove friends. Any guesses? I will post his photo later to see the comparisons.

Pink or Blue?



Jason took these pics last night at DQ's big fireworks show. But they ALSO represent the question of whether or not we will have a boy or girl come 1/14/09?!!! Our secret is now out in the open, after keeping it in for 12 weeks! We are expecting baby #2 next January. We plan to have a legitimate name-contest with this one that we promise will be win-able...we are thinking maybe a $50 gas card or STarbucks card for the first person who guesses the name. However, we will wait until we find out the sex before the contest officially begins. :-) So stay tuned! We're so excited to have another arrow in our quiver. Children truly are a reward & a heritage from the Lord.

Surfin USA

So this is Jason & I's favorite water sport now- wakesurfing. It is SO MUCH FUN. Jason is already a pro, as you can see in the picture below. He can surf behind the boat w/out the rope for at least 30 seconds, if not a 1minute. It's really fun to watch. In the last picture, he even surfed up to the swim deck on the back of the boat and just stepped right on! Kinda freaked me out b/c I wasn't expecting it, but he meant to do it all along! For me, however, it was only my 3rd time to surf, so I never quite found the 'sweet spot' in the wake to where I could let go of the rope and just ride. But I still had a blast, b/c it's so dang fun. (plus it doesn't hurt to fall! even though I STILL have to hold my nose, as evidenced by the 3rd picture down, much to Jason's delight when he captured the moment) I also shriek like a girl every time I fall, too. I don't know why! It's just instinct, both holding my nose and shrieking. Oh well, I'm not ashamed! I'm just glad I can still do water sports with no fear of tearing another ACL (as I did wakeboarding 2 summers ago). We love the lake & we love Ryan & RAchel's boat. It puts out a pretty wicked surfing wave, even though you can't tell by the pictures. Fun times!
