Loving Every Minute

We've had Brody home now for 10 days, and we've been soaking up every minute.  This parenthood thing is amazing.  We are so blessed to have this little guy in our lives.
Such a handsome little man!  He's also been a very content, easy baby so far.  Tomorrow, a friend is coming over to do a photo shoot so we can capture the newborn phase.  Can't wait!!

Brody Max Jones

Meet our son

Brody Max Jones

Born March 18, 2010
7 lbs 6 oz
19 inches

Brody joined our family on March 19th through the wonderful gift of adoption.   We are so thrilled, and feel extremely blessed to have him in our lives and in our home.  This is something we have been waiting for, and dreaming of for a very long time, and he's finally here!
We were able to be at the hospital for Brody's delivery, and get to know him from his first hours of life.  We have so much gratitude, and love for his amazing birth parents who loved him enough to make the selfless decision to give him more, by placing him for adoption.  We will be eternally grateful to them for giving us the ultimate gift.
Our new little family.
He's absolutely perfect, and we're head over heels in love with him.
It has been a long, difficult road, and we've been through countless trials to get to this point.  Although our trials will never be forgotten, as they have made an impression on our hearts, we can now say it has been worth it all.

Celebrating 10 YEARS

This week we celebrated our 10th Anniversary!!  Wow, it's hard to believe that magical day was 10 years ago.  How time flies.  It was fun to reflect back on that day together, and reminisce through the years.  It has been an amazing 10 years.
We didn't celebrate the BIG 10 with a dream Hawaiian vacation (for now), or a diamond anniversary band, (or a new roping saddle --per Brent).  We're holding out for something much better.  MUCH, MUCH better. . .
Coming in a few weeks?!

Instead we celebrated by taking a short, overnight trip to SLC for a UTAH JAZZ vs. Los Angeles Clippers game (the Jazz won).  We met up with Brent's brother and his wife for dinner, (Rodizio Brazillian Grill - yum!) and the game. 
This was the first pro game we had seen live, and although Brent probably won't admit it, I think he's an addict now! When I first suggested going he said, "Why would we go to the game when we can watch it on TV?"  Such a logical thinker, but come on, it's much more fun to see it live!  Brent is most definitely a country boy, and will avoid "the city" when at all possible.

Thanks for the fun weekend, my Love!
