Man, I was so close.  Ten months of photos right on Jude’s monthly “birthday,” and the last one before his ACTUAL birthday, I got way behind.  Rather than totally blow it off, I decided to take some belated 11 month photos of Jude.  (Let’s be honest: I needed some photos for his birthday invites.  But hey, it still counts!)

This month, Judah is getting more and more of a fun personality!  He loves to feed himself, and will be content to just sit in his high chair, munching on some cheerios and watching the rest of us eat and/or dance in the kitchen.  This little tractor is his all-time favorite toy.  I have never seen a child adore a toy as much as Jude loves this tractor!  He spins it around the living room, crawl/scooting to his heart’s content.  It is adorable.

We’ve got four teeth since I last updated!  His first appeared on Christmas Eve, with three more following the next week.  He’s a champ when it comes to teething, so we haven’t had it too bad around here.  He will wake up once or twice in the middle of the night, but a little motrin/nursing session puts him right back to sleep.

In just a couple short weeks, he will be the big 1 year old.  My my, how little J is growing!  And we are loving every second of it.

2015 brought so many changes:  a new baby, a new city, a new job… and yet the thankfulness for my family and God’s grace has permeated every step.  Some steps were tougher to take than others, and some things we’re still figuring out, but I wouldn’t trade it for the world.

Here are my top 10 images of 2015.  Cheers to the new year, friends.

Courtney is technically full-term, which is such an exciting time!  It comes with its obstacles, sure, but you’re so close to meeting your new tiny human… the anticipation is incredible.  It’s perfectly timed, too– lots of us are excitedly awaiting Christmas next week!  Whenever this sweet baby arrives, I can imagine the overflowing joy that will fill Courtney and Matt’s whole family (including her lovely sister, who is a friend of mine).

Enjoy a sweet, heartfelt series of moments shared by these two who are soon to be parents.

Judah has been keeping us busy this month for sure.  He is a crazy fast crawler these days, and he’s very curious.  He’s still the toothless wonder, but I think we’re close (but what do I know– I’ve been saying that for months).  He is finally sleeping through the night consistently (HOORAY!), and he loves all his new friends at Good Shepherd preschool.  Jude is such a pleasant kiddo.  He can put a smile on your face with a flash of his gummy grin!

And for those wondering, here’s proof that the boys are spitting images of one another.  It’s crazy!!  (color is Judah this week, black and white is Noah in 2013.)
