Introducing

I will now acquaint you with our add ons.

Isaiah: Since he came first we'll start with him.
He loves: hot weather, water, motorcycles, Toyota's (especially his little '94 Toyota truck he got last month), music "good" music he'd say, concerts (even on DVD), his garden, and bacon and perhaps that should have been first.
He hates: Anything with mayonnaise but particularly pasta salad, cheesy music/movies/dialog, the saplings coming up all over our yard from our neighbors trees roots, a dirty kitchen, and going to sleep at 6pm (which he has to do for his job).
Since I've been pregnant for the majority of our marriage so far this might just be my extra sensitivity, but he can be a bit of a brute saying what he thinks with no coddling. We've been good for each other, him to toughen me up and me to soften him. He is becoming more and more of a wonderful father. Providence gets nannied from me (I don't like to admit it but I am a softy) so it's been good to have him push and stretch her more, plus he does all these fun things mom's just don't seem to be able to make time for, mostly playing. He works hard all day and more often then not comes home and makes the family dinner. He comes from a family of 10 (12 including parents) and would love his own to be as large, of course his mother started much younger...


Jubilee: She loves: Eating, her pacifier, pulling herself up on whatever she can get her hands on, and her sister.
She hates: Not getting whatever everyone else is eating, papa walking right by her when he gets home from work, and when mama doesn't pick her up.
Starting life with a roar Jubilee arrived early and so quickly the midwife was unable to get there in time. She was the most austere baby I have ever seen, giving people the stare down of their lives, while they try to coax a smile. Winning a smile from her is rare but very rewarding since she makes you work so hard for it. As she is getting older she has become more amiable so those hard worked for smiles are bestowed more often, in fact at home they're becoming quite common. She is a little papa's girl and will be a sweet angel for him while saving up all her fusses for me. She has an awful temper, way more fiery then Providence was.

I can't imagine life without these now very integral parts of our family. God has been good.

It's so nice to see your happy, growing family! I used to pray a lot for you and Prudence before and was thrilled when you announced your engagement. Isaiah and Jubillee (another lovely name)sound wonderful!
