What more could a girl ask for?

I just realized I haven't updated this blog in so long. Jace has grown a ton since the last time I blogged about him. He is now 21 months old and a smarty pants. Too smart for his own good sometimes. He has started getting bored with his toys lately because he can figure them out so quickly. His vocabulary is growing like crazy. I'll make a list of words he can say.

1 Ma ma
2 Daddy
3 Pappy (when he wants too) Papaw (his MS Papaw)
4 Jamma (he says it like amma)

That is all I can think of for now. Could be more but my brain isn't cooperating right now. It doesn't seem like he should be saying all of this right now. Time sure has flown by. He will be 2 in a little less than 3 months. I was definitely blessed when that little guy entered my life.

As far as the whole family unit goes, Steve asked me to marry him on my birthday. I was in complete and total shock. We had went and got our dog that day then went to Steve's parents house. They wanted to give me some gifts. They spoil me, really. They had about 4-5 bottles of wine for me, a gift certificate for an hour massage, some old skeleton keys (I love keys), and a few other things. Steve kept saying he was so glad they got me good stuff and that I loved it all because I was going to be so disappointed with his gifts. We got home about 7:30PM and watched some TV and ate dinner. He finally gave me my gifts about 8:30. It was all in a gift bag. I started getting things out and there was a tea pitcher for loose leaf tea that I like, tea, some of my favorite candy, and the card. I read the card and it already had me in tears. I picked the bag up because I didn't think there was anything else in there but it was heavy. I looked inside again and saw a little jewelry box wrapped in paper. I thought it was earrings or a necklace. I opened the box and a ring was inside, I immediately starting crying so hard. Steve asked me to marry him and I hugged him as tight as I could. Jace started crying by this point because I was crying. Lol. Of course, I said yes. He made me the happiest woman alive that night. In September we were together for 3 years. Best three years of my life. We plan to get married in October in Ocean Springs, MS. I cannot wait to marry the man I love so deeply and continue our lives together. And, hopefully have another child that is just as sweet, loving, and beautiful as Jace is. With that I will leave you all with some photos.

 This first one is our Christmas Card Photo. Lol. He loves Elmo.
 I took this one of him a while back with my studio equipment.
 We went to Madison, IN in the fall and took some photos of him.
 These are 4 of my favorite people. Steve, Jace, and his parents.
 Is that not the best smile you have ever seen?
