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

Happy LOVE day!

I think it's perfect timing that Valentine's Day is this week. A week that is so special for us...we find out the gender of our little one and we get to share the day with family and friends. We are so excited to have my parents and Zach's parents here for the weekend!
So happy LOVE day family and friends. I hope you are spending it with someone(s) special! I have not found this chapter in any of my maternity books so I am still trying to diagnose why I love everything/everyone in site lately but we will just chalk it up to hormones!

I have two share to exciting things. First, we finally hung Zach's painting in the study. It was his Christmas gift from me but due to pregnancy sickness I was delayed in finishing it until this weekend. We spent most of our Sunday outside on the most gorgeous day constructing a frame for the canvas. Then after youth group we put the final touches on it and it's now FINALLY home on what used to be a huge empty wall. We just love it! Here are some pics of Zach during the frame construction process...
Our second bit of news came last night. We were watching the Grammy's and the Avett Brothers performed alongside Bob Dylan and Mumford & Sons. They all were awesome. We got in bed and Zach was downloading all of the music so we could listen to it. Then he got out the guitar and started to learn one of the songs. Right about then I felt the strangest thing, little movements in my tummy. Looks like Baby J loves music too!! We just laughed and Z kept playing and the baby kept moving on and off for about 20 minutes! It was the most amazing thing I have experienced. I am so excited to see the little bugger again, we have not seen it in 8 weeks!
