God's Gifts

Wow, it's hard to believe that Brett is already five months old! Time has flown by since Mr. Wonderful came into our lives. I simply cannot remember what Drew and I did before Brett was born?! What did we do with all of that FREE TIME?

God is so good to us. I am humbled, DAILY, by his generosity. I got a text from my former boss on Wednesday stating that my "bonus" was X amount of dollars. I thought he was just giving me a hard time and rubbing it in that I wouldn't get the money since I didn't go back to work after maternity leave! I told Drew to check the bank account on Friday the 20th to see if any money had been deposited.. NOPE. Bummer! We could really use it!

Saturday afternoon Drew checked the mail and low and behold an envelope from Forest Pharmaceuticals... that's right, A BONUS CHECK! Tears welled up in my eyes. Drew said "It's your money to use as you'd like," so I told him to take the tithe off the top, put the rest in the bank, and that we were gonna get Brett a jumparoo (something I've wanted him to have for a while). As you can see in the picture, HE LOVES IT! We've also discovered a tooth coming in on the bottom! He doesn't seem too fussy about it but sure is drooling a lot :o) Sweet baby!


  1. Congratulations girl!!! So proud of you! Amazing how when you become a mother it isn't about you anymore. I can't tell you the last time I bought "me" something. I would rather spend it on Brax! Love you and have a great day!

  2. Congrats again on your surprise bonus!! You deserve it!! I'm glad Brett finally got his Jumperoo and he is enjoying it so much!!
