Turns out, life isn’t like the movies…most of us wouldn’t make good movie characters. As Miller reflects on their take on […]

Elijah’s First Haircut

August 3rd, 2012 · 3 Comments · Elijah, Jonah, Personal

Elijah got his first haircut today and took it like a champ. It is amazing to watch our boys grow up. Honestly, I didn’t realize the value of the people around me until I had kids of my own. It hit me one day…every single person in the whole world was just like this little […]

Jonah Said the Sweetest Thing

Last night as we came home from LIFE group Missy and I were discussing Elijah’s (our 11 month old) birthday party. At his party we are asking people to bring gifts for the localĀ  Children’s Hospital (All Childrens) and Jonah was listening to the details. He went into his room, got out his bin of […]

Elijah is Crawling

July 12th, 2011 · No Comments · Elijah, Jonah, Missy, Personal

It is really great to see your child crawl for the first time. Now Elijah isn’t full out crawling. His crawling is more like dragging himself across the room with just his right arm but it is a start! Missy refers to it as the soldier in the movie who lost an arm and a […]
