We've been working on our ABC's. Rody recognizes many of his letters and has said them in combination as well. Coming home from church today we learned that he knows ALL of them...it may be completely normal for a just turned 2 year old to know and recite his ABC's...I have no idea...but it amazed us! Here he is after we promised him some ice cream if he did it for the camera. This child speaks food...ha!

I have a new webpage as well: www.katiebarnettjuiceplus.com
I encourage you to go check it out and do me a favor. Click "Watch the Video" on the homepage. It will be worth 14 minutes of your time and could change your life...literally...I believe that strongly in Juice Plus and what it does for overall health and wellness...and I am proud to say that both my babies are Juice Plus babies...started them in the womb and continue to this day...

He is currently working on potty training Rody
And spends much of his day cooing at our darling daughter...receiving all her precious smiles. I would rather be the one doing this. I want to see the smiles at 11:30 in the morning. But, I don't. How do I accept this and remain content?
I don't mean for this post to be a downer. I am simply in a seeking/searching mode. Randy and I did not envision this when we got married. We are going on our 5th anniversary, still live in the same 2 bedroom apartment, have 2 children, and one main job. Life wasn't exactly supposed to look like this. Randy was supposed to get a good job...maybe 2 jobs to make it work...we were supposed to live closer to some of our family...we were supposed to be in a starter home by now...I was supposed to be joining a MOPS group or something...maybe leading a ladies Bible study...but our life looks nothing like this...

Her little features are so sweet...and big blue eyes...of course...not a brown eye in the gene pool on either side...

And here we are on my first birthday. I just love this picture. I know that I don't actually remember my first birthday, but this picture just shows me how special my mom is...and I've made a conscious effort/decision to have a picture like this with each of my children on their birthdays...
My mom and I have had some fun adventures together. One of our first trips together was when I was in highschool and we went to Boston for a national track meet for me to throw the indoor shot put. I remember seeing the weight throw there for the first time and saying outloud that there was no way I could ever throw that...ha ha..God must have been laughing!
How could I forget the ski trip to Squaw Valley? You amazed me with your ability to take a ski class and ski down the mountain all in one day...and with such fashionable style!
And of course when you decided to throw on your wetsuit and raft some river I cannot pronounce while we were in France...I'll never forget the words "Security...Security..." and seeing all of us crouch down low in the boat...
Or riding a gondola high in the French Alps together.....
And sitting in the memorable chair in Tahoe...
