Happy Birthday, Jared!

Here's a few random pictures of our beloved 30-year-old:

Isn't he cute? We love you, Jared. You're a great husband and father, as well as a lot of other things!

Check out the treasure we found in Mom's shed last fall! At last, the little Napoleon Dynamite look-alike contest can begin! This used to be my brother, David's, according to Mama Brough. Sweet, no?
You gotta love the moon boots facade.

Baby Mine

It will forever be a mystery to me why the scene of "Baby Mine" from Dumbo makes me cry...every...single...time.... And I've seen the movie dozens of times. I honestly don't remember watching it without crying at that part, even as a little girl.It may be that I love my mom so much, and I could not imagine having her be taken away from me and locked up in a place with the sign "mad elephant" outside it. haha...
I guess I knew I'd be a mother, deep down, even though I never consciously thought about it until much later. So I was starting to relate to how a mom feels about her little ones.They are so precious; they're not ours, but we get to teach them...and be taught.
I'm really not a good mom--I fall short in so many ways! But I want to be. And everyone has to start somewhere, right?

So, without further gab from me, here are a few more angelic pictures of my newborn. They were taken by my sister a couple of weeks ago and I wanted to share them.

Here is my first baby, forever. Poor Isaac: such huge adjustments! And his crazy Momma cries every time he watches Dumbo.
