BIG plans :)

God has BIG plans. Yes, WAY BIGGER than yours. :) And, WAY BIGGER than mine. Thank goodness HE's in charge!

Do you find yourself fearing tomorrow or do you feel anxious about something? Hopefully these verses will help you out. I found myself super anxious about something coming up, so I sought these out. Hope they help you find comfort! Print them out or highlight them in your bible!

Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you. 
(1 Peter 5:7) 

 Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. (Philippians  4:6-7)

Cast your cares on the LORD and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous fall. (Psalm 55:22)

When anxiety was great within me, your consolation brought joy to my soul. (Psalm 94:19)

Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.
(Psalm 139:23-24)

The LORD is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear? The LORD is the strength of my life; Of whom shall I be afraid? (Psalm 27:1)

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go. (Joshua 1:9)

I am the God of your father Abraham; do not fear, for I am with you. (Genesis 26:24)

Wanting to catch the bus!

This little guy LOVES his backpack. I couldn't get it off of him! There was nothing in it, but he felt special and that made me all giddy inside. :)

Someday this little guy will head off to school and his mommy will have no idea what to do with herself. LOVE his precious heart and happy spirit. He doesn't know what backpacks are for just yet...and I'm thankful :). Our days consist of cuddling, cars, bananas, and play-dough. I'm content.

What do you think, mom?

Hoosier Love!

I ONLY love the state of Indiana because there are some pretty special people in it. :) So, it's easy to wear IU gear or appreciate how GOOD IU is going to be next year in basketball. But yes, I still love my Wildcats! GO BLUE!

So, who are those SPECIAL people that we love in Indiana?? Trent's family and lots of dear friends. And, I can't forget DePauw...where I met these incredible folks! We had an awesome weekend!!

We had a family reunion with Trent's side of the family on Saturday and his grandparents are just too cute. They had rented a little band to entertain everyone while they fished and while Jessica (cousin) and I chased our babies around! We then headed to Indy for Ryan and Brooke's wedding. Ryan is one of our great friends from college. He's hilarious, goofy, sweet, and oh-so-fun. Brooke is super adorable and such a creative soul. They got married at a baseball field in Indy since Ryan loves his baseball :). They had popcorn and peanuts for the guests during the wedding and a little bat boy {ring bearer} that was pulled in on a red wagon...too cute! R & B also ran the bases at the end!!  Check out the pics below!

18 Month Checkup!!

 I LOVE doctor's appointments. Well, I really only LOVE Collins' appointments...I get so excited to find out his new measurements and see Dr. Warner. He's the best. He always makes me feel normal. Normal is good when you're a mommy. I think he thinks I'm crazy with my 500 questions, but he never tells me that. It's just good to know that I'm supported and that Collins is a healthy growing boy. And, his lack of words are ok!! Dr. Warner says this is normal for boys!! Whew!

Length: 33 inches! He grew half an inch in 3 months! 85th percentile
Weight: 28 1/2 pounds! He gained 2 pounds in 3 months! 80th percentile
Head: 49 1/2 cm. His head grew 1 cm! 90th percentile

What new things is Collins doing?!?
  • words used often: up, hi, Lucie, yes, no, ball, car, dada
  • we've heard him say: bless you, nala, momma, tractor, cheese, outside, bubbles, vrrrrooom
  • sings and copies tunes
  • has all 4 eye teeth in! those were rough....
  • runs with a little jump in his cute!
  • throws food off of his tray 
  • loves straws, bananas, cheese, cars, trucks, playing in our shower, running in the grass, the outside!!, playing in water, pushing his lawnmower, emptying the pantry, stacking toys, laughing all the time!
  • finds his bellybutton and nose
  • love to put his head on his animals and friends...his way of kissing or hugging
  • when he's tired he plays with his hair
  • snuggles at bedtime :) 
Ready for the next 18 months! I can't imagine it getting any better! xo

Have a GREAT weekend!!!
