My son is desperatly in love with his Pup Pup. And unfortuantly every night before bedtime we need to do a nose check on pup pup to see if he needs his nose surgically removed so that Caden doesn’t bite it off and swallow it! Caden is such a loving child for which I am emencely thankful for the only problem with this is a fierce love for Pup Pup in such a way that it’s like he’s making out with pup pups face all the time. One of his favorite things to do is bite and chew on Pup Pup’s nose, which smells gross I might add. I don’t really sew much. I’m not exactly sure what I’m going to do when Pup Pups’s nose finally does come off but I guess I will figure out something because surely Caden can’t live without him! Here’s some edvidence…
Can you see where he needs surgery something bad?
Now that you’ve seen photo #1 check out Pup Pup’s sweet nose eaten face…
So there you have it folkes, my son eats his favorite stuffed animals face off. Does any other parent have this problem?
This is Jonathan writing. Becky left it signed in so I thought I would write a little while she is sleeping and I am having trouble sleeping. Life has been hard in a lot of ways for us this past year and a half. However, we have been so blessed and our love has grown so much stronger. Life has thrown us some curveballs and our young marriage has only grown stronger. Caden is such a blessing and a joy to have. And, we are waiting with delight for that little one growing in Becky’s belly. A couple of weeks ago we heard the heartbeat for the first time. What an amazing thing to know that not too long ago we heard Caden’s heartbeat and now he is running around.
I wanted to tell everyone who reads this blog how much I love my wife. She is an amazing woman of God and her faith is an encouragement to me. She has persevered through some tough times and continues to pursue the Lord with all her heart. I pray that I can be a husband who cherishes Becky and the times we have together. As I look around, I see so many people struggling in their marriages. Becky and I have been married a little over 4 years and every day we grow closer together in some way. I want to love Becky more in 50 years than I do right now. The Lord, as He grows me, will show me ways in which I can improve and ways in which I am selfish.
These last several months have been hard. We have cried alot but we have also laughed alot. I could not have made it through all that has gone on without Becky by my side. She is my best friend, my partner, and my ‘other half.’ I don’t mean that in the cheesy way it is sometimes used. I mean that in a very real and tangible way. My down days she has picked me up. When my eyes have been focused on the wrong things, the Lord has used Becky to point them in the right direction. I love you sweetie!
And Caden has brought so much laughter and joy to our home. He is such a happy kid. Smiling, talking a lot, and doing what boys do. Toys are tossed to the floor, toys are over-turned in an attempt to see how they work, and so many other ways Caden is exploring the world. Everything he picks up can become a ball to throw or an object to bang on something. I love having a boy! Why? Because his sense of adventure and exploration is natural. And through all of that he listens well. He is understanding no more and more and not touching things we have told him not to. What a pleasure it is to have children.
I just wanted to write from my perspective and let some of what I am thinking out. We are definitely on an adventure and it is quite a ride. I am such a different person than I was just 1 year ago and can’t wait to see how the Lord grows me and my family in this next year.

Dear Wonderful Husband and all the readers of blogger land,
Please forgive me. I love you so much and you are a wonderful provider for our family. You are such a hard worker and have taken such good care of us. It was not my intent at all for you to feel like in any way you weren’t. You are my knight in shinning armor, my king, and my best friend. Please forgive me for making you feel any different than that. I respect you so much! You are so great at what you do and our family is grateful for what you do for us each and every day. I have been blessed with such a wonderful man who loves the Lord and loves his family. You are doing such a wonderful job! I’m sorry there are times when I am negative and discontent. I need the Lord to help me through those times. They are not any reflection at all on you! In fact, I am so so proud to call myself your wife. With the Lord’s help we have achieved so much in this difficult year. And you my wonderful husband are much of the reason why. We have been through so much together in not even four years of marriage. I know we will come out stronger in our faith and in our selves. You are a blessing to me every day! I love you!
So to all out there who have read my posts in the past couple of months please know that I never intended to disrespect my wonderful husband. Althogh I did and blogging is a great outlet for sharing what is going on with me but I think it also can shed light on how imperfect I really am. Please forgive me!
