Therefore, as God's chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience. Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.
Colossians 3:12-14

Gymnastics gymnastics gymnastics!!!!

Adeline's love for Bauer is always growing also! So happy to have such a gentle dog with the kids
Eliza started gymnastics a few weeks ago, and it is right up her ally! I was looking for a way to burn her winter energy, and this is doing the trick. It also is the start of what I think will be a lot of devoted time and energy on mommy and daddy's part, b/c I do not think Eliza is going to want to quit anytime soon! I started it saying we will just do one doesn't look like we will be stopping! I am sounding like the proud mommy for a second.....but she is a natural! She asks to go to gymnastics everyday, and at the end of the 45 minute class she begs for "more ymacksics....peasss," she says! Like I said....she is intense! This face shows a crazy way!

the high bar....she was a little too fearless for mommy on this one!

Jumping was today's theme, one of Eliza's favorite pastimes!!!!

TA DA!!!!

Front rolls!


The kids are supposed to sit on the balance beam and listen to the next routine they are going to do....the first week Eliza would not just sit here and listen, I would say we have some listening impovement already! (knock on wood....hopefully!)

Because my mom was here, Adeline got to do gymnastics too! Eliza was not happy about this!

Stretching...Eliza gets a little intense with stretching....well with everything pretty much!!!

These two are crazy about each other! I have never seen a dog so excited to greet someone when they wake up in the morning as he is with Eliza!

Bathtime is a VERY exciting thing in the Judd house, both our girls love it!!! (and needed it!)

Eliza's Pig Party!

Eliza turned 2 on December 29th, and I am pretty sure she thinks her birthday was from December 24th until January 22nd! This is how long her birthday celebrations went on this year, hopefully she doesn't expect that next year! She enjoyed every one of her celebrations so much, it is such a joy to see your children happy, and I could see how it would be so easy to spoil them! Although I know if I want to see them truly happy I need to do just the opposite.....not always easy! (as you can see) I just love this little girl so much, and I cannot believe she is "two olds," as she says..... Happy Birthday to our sweet Eliza Belle! We'll love you forever, We'll love you for always!

I through this in there because I am so excited to have my sister's bath seat....bathing the girls together is wonderful now!

Dan took Eliza on a movie date for her birthday...Alvin and the Chipmunks, the Eliza,"I love Alvin...." all the time! (oh well at least he is a chipmunk and not a boy!....for now!)

Eliza got breakfast in bed....and she thought it was the coolest thing...she loved it!!!!
This was on her actual birthday with just mommy, daddy, and Adeline! cream cake!!!
This was Eliza when everyone started singing to her....SO EXCITED!

Welcome to the Judd's Blog!

Where to start......well, Dan and I decided, that this would be a great way to make our out of state family and friends feel a lot closer! We hope to show you more of our crazy lives through this blog, than maybe what you get to hear over the phone or every couple months in person! Update on us...I am staying at home with our two wonderful children, Eliza and Adeline! We feel so blessed that God has entrusted us and blessed us with them, I have to remind myself on a daily basis that they really are ours! Eliza just turned two and boy can you tell! She teaches me patience all day every day, and keeps me on my toes! She just started gymnastics a couple of weeks ago, and it is right up her ally. I don't think she will let us take her out of that anytime soon! Adeline is 8 months, and loves her big sister......although she doesn't quite understand getting pushed around all the time(we are working on that one!) She is trying to crawl, and pull herself up, but not quite a pro yet! I am pretty sure Eliza has it coming, Adeline is only a few pounds behind her! Dan is starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel. He is in his third year of medical school, which is rotations. He amazes me everyday by how much he puts into what will be his career. Medical school is stressful for people without families, and he handles it great! He will start applying to residency this fall, and we will find out where we will be for the next 3 years in Feb. 2011! I am excited to know, and I know that this year is going to fly by! Well I will try to keep up with the posting and sharing, so tune in often!
