It's been awhile......

The Gibson life has been anything but calm since out last post about Jae Beth. She turned 1 year on Christmas Day!!!??!! I can't believe it's been a year since I gave birth to this chunk of joy! We've had so many 1st's in our lives since I last blogged that I can't even count them all or remember them! Jae had her 1st Halloween/Thanksgiving/and Christmas. Jae also had a special visit from Dan's Grandmother from Colorado for Thanksgiving! We had lots of ministry events, we learned how to keep some what of a social life and have a baby, Dan left the country with less than 24 hours notice, I found out I was expecting right before scheduling sinus surgery, and Dan moved back to the main campus for work. It's been very eventful! However did I let this time pass without blogging---I'll tell you how. I am a full time employee to my Lord/husband/baby/family/ministry/and my full time job. And at the end of the day I come home to just BE--I love on Jae and Dan--I have really let go of facebook and blogging and I have never felt more free. I would rather be a bad blogger than a bad mama any day! However--I do want to slowly start getting connected again--but VERY slowly. But even though I feel as though we are busy every waking minute of the day---we really wouldn't have it any other way---because this is the Lord's will for the moment ;). It's a season. One day I know the Lord will slow us down but that is not what He has for us as today. So we will just roll with it with a good attitude (try to at least)! I also had to stop nursing right after Jae Beth turned 10 months. I was getting nauseated from nursing while being pregnant and my supply dropped immediately after the nausea started. I was definitely more sad than Jae was about quitting--but my goal was 12 months or until the Lord stopped me from being able to-so I guess I met my goal. Plus Jae was ready for more ---just look at her---I think she was ready for table food the first day she met the world! Ok--so the point of this blog is to update friends/family/and a few strangers about Jae Beth and to blog the announcement that I am also expecting our 2nd baby. These two babies will be 18 months a part---so we are in for a wild ride! Here is Jae's QUICK update (we don't have her 1 year check up until mid January since she is on some medicine for her 1st ear ache--which happens to be a double ear infection). But here is her quick update month 7-11:

7 Months:

Still cute!

Jae spent 2 weeks with us in Florida! She loved it!

8 Months:

Yes Still Cute! And I turned 29!

9 Months:

Adorable still!! And started started to snuggle more!

10 Months:

Jae started to say a lot more this month. Stopped nursing and got sick for the FIRST time with allergies. She started eating more solids this month. Her teething got worse and she started to wake up in the wee hours of the morning to let us know she wasn't enjoying the teething. LOVES snuggling!!!

11 Months:

Jae got to start going to birthday parties/meeting and greeting lots of new friends at church/ and for the 1st time since she was born--she stayed with my mom for a weekend (which has happened a few time since!!!) She also took her first steps at 11.5 months.

I will update the blog for the 1 year soon---lots of FUN Christmas pictures and video!!

  1. boy did I grab a lot of these for our iPhotos or what! One of my NY resolutions is to get my act together with photos, so these are a good place to start. It's hard to believe she's already a year old. Precious, precious addition to our family.

  2. Congrats on the baby-to-be! I love her chunky little legs. I have a giant 7 month old with rolls for days! : )
