Life is a test. We are not present on earth to just exist; we are here to learn. Life is a lesson. Love one another unconditionally. Love thyself unconditionally. We spend our whole lives learning to do this. Some succeed and some never have a clue. I'm trying. Love my fellow man. Don't react and don't always have to be right. This is one I'll have to work on for the rest of my life. Appreciate each day and recognize positive and negative as a part of life's experiences. Look around me and see life at it's best. The joys of living come as you strive to achieve your dreams. Its the quality of each day that is important, not the distant dream once achieved. Teach and nurture my children. You can never give them too much love. -Randa Jex 1/1/94

It's Baby Time!

We are so excited to finally be able to let the cat out of the bag and shout from the mountain tops...."WE'RE HAVING A BABY". I still can't believe it since I have not had too many symptoms (crossing my fingers and knocking on wood it stays that way), but it became a reality to us 2 weeks ago we had our first sonogram and the little bambino looks great. Heart beat was strong-117 BPM (I guess that is the reason I become winded just walking upstairs) and the little bean was measuring exactly (to the day) the estimated age. We are just over 8 weeks now and the sweet pea is due on July 15, 2011. So stay tuned for more exciting news as Baby J progresses and YES we are finding out the gender for all of my crazy family members who think we should wait and let it be a surprise...haha riggggght. In case you forgot, I am Mrs. Planner/decorator/mapper outter/ monogrammer/picture painter/nursery dreamer upper....I have a folder on my desktop full of nursery ideas I came across over the past year or so. There is no way this baby will enter this world with a bedroom that is anything less than inspiring, stimulating, and totally dreamlike...or at least that is what I am envisioning :)

Thank you to all of our family and friends that have been so wonderfully supportive and have shared in our joy. We have felt so surrounded by love and hope these last few weeks that I know Baby J will be coming into a blessed life with so many people that love him or her.
