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 Birthday Nana Nell!!

I went in to get Austin this morning and he was playing Go Fish with Mr. Teddy wearing this adorable number in honor of his NaNa's Birthday. Happy Birthday Nana Nell! She has been a saving grace since Austin arrived, coming over to relieve me so I can shower, going to the pediatrician with me, babysitting while I grocery shop and to let Z and I go on a date. We love her for so many reasons and if you know her, you can't help but feel the same way. We are meeting her at Mammie's for lunch to celebrate and Austin said he couldn't be more thrilled about his first trip to the big mammie, he's most excited about the chocolate icebox pie!

Zach caught Austin and I napping yesterday in the guestroom. I finally figured out those moms that said "sleep when he sleeps" were totally right. So Austin and I have started napping together after his 2pm feeding. This is one of my favorite times of the day!
But another favorite time is after his 8pm feeding- he just chills in the bed with us and is the sweetest little snuggle bug! Last night he was sporting his mohawk after his bath. Okay, I'm not gonna lie...I have about 100 "favorite" times of the day. Like right now for instance, we watch the Nate Berkus show every morning together, Austin just loves his design style and says he and Nate share personal style as well... neither of them like wearing socks and they both have great hair!
