Criss Cross

Judson’s bike team put on a race on Saturday. Cade lined up for the Women’s race….I don’t think she got too far with them but I’m sure it won’t be long before she is actually racing. I have to give Biff credit…I stole this picture from him.

Great Dad!

You know you’ve married the right guy when he does a photo shoot with a 2 year old & a dog my himself (including outfit changes & bows) while mom is out of town! Thanks Hubby.

Things I never thought I would do

I knew Motherhood would take me out of my comfort zone at times & this morning was one of those times. Cade’s daycare has been having parents sign up to read to the class once a week in the summer. Well, I signed Judson up to read today but he back out last night (something about deadlines at work or something…in his defense he said he will do it in a couple of weeks). I couldn’t let them not have a reader today so I decided to go in Judson’s place. I am not really a kid person, especially ramdom kids I barley know. Anyway, I picked out 2 books, one of which is Cade’s favorite. When we got there I tried to get Cade to sit with the kids but she was determined to sit with me, her teacher said they usually let the kids sit on their parent’s lap if they come to read. She was so excited to sit with my while I read…it was really neat. After the first book the kids all clapped and I’m pretty sure she thought they were clapping for her. The second book was Cade’s favorite and she read certain lines along with me. I’m glad she is too young to realize she should be embarrassed that her mom is not very good at reading out loud to a room full of icky kids but it really was a good experience for me. The things we do for these kids!

Neglected

I know I have been neglecting the blog…I will try to get better. We’ve been traveling a bunch over the past couple months so now it is time to stay home and work. We made a trip to Calgary, I went on a girls’ trip to NYC, Cade & I made a last minute trip to Saskatchewan & Judson has had several bike races. Cade is definitely growing up and becoming a sweet little girl (most of the time).  Here are a few pictures of things we’ve doing.

Update

Sorry, for the long delay in updating. We really appreciate everyone praying for Steven. Basically he was worse off than he initially told us. He is back in the U.S. & should get to come home for a little while.  A huge blessing is that he is stationed near the Nelms family (Uncle, Aunt & Cousins) so they were able to meet him when he got back. I stole the picture from Cousin Amanda’s facebook page. I don’t know how much I am supposed to post on a blog & I’m not always sure I have all the right information (boys just don’t seem to give details as much as girls would) but thank you for keeping Judson’s family in your prayers.

Hard Times

I’ve been meaning to post an update for a while but I wish the topic of this post was better; it hasn’t been a good day for the Copeland family. The day started with a text from Judson’s dad telling him Steven had been hurt by a grenade but we didn’t know how badly he had been hurt. Apparently the family receives a phone call from Washington telling them their solider is hurt but don’t give much details. Well, Judson’s mom talked to Steven today….they say it is just “superficial wounds” and he should be okay in a couple weeks. We were hoping this would mean he would get to come home but no such luck but we will take any blessings we can get. This is really making this whole situation more “real”; we have tried not to think about details of what he is doing just to handle the stress but I guess we have to face reality sometime.
In Laura’s call she also told us that their Uncle Irvin had passed away. He is like a surrogate grandfather to Judson & Steven so it is sad to lose him. His health has been failing for a while but it is still hard. This is the family that Judson’s family celebrates all their holidays with and Saturday night Taco Bell tradition. This year we have lost 2 members of the family… I wish I was better at writing but this is a difficult time.
Please keep the Copeland family in your prayers!

Bad Mom

As many of you may know Cade is a little challenged in the hair department. It was really started to grow in the last couple of months but there still isn’t much there. Anyway, we were upstairs cleaning out the supplies under the bathroom sink. She was quietly playing with the cotton balls as I sorted soap & bottles of lotion. I looked up and she was had Judson’s shaving kit in her lap & was looking at a razor. Being the “good mom” that I am I went over to take it from her. She was just looking at it & I noticed something on it. I thought maybe she shaved a cotton ball or something but then I saw the back of her head & it was her own hair! I am mortified….it looks terrible. I immediately started to think about what I could do to fix it; she doesn’t have long enough hair to cover over it, I’m not going to cut the rest to match since it has taken his long to get here…there is nothing I can do.  So, I’m sorry baby girl…I know every girl has to do some stupid hair cut on themselves at some point…I hope this is our ONE!

Big Girl

I took this picture of Cade this morning on our way top school. She just woke up so she wasn’t really in the mood to smile yet but I just thinks she looks sooo big. She had her 18month (wow where does the time go) appointment yesterday. She was 19.6lbs (3rd percentile), 29.something inches (5th percentile) and her head was in the 25th percentile. So given her stats she isn’t too big but it just seems like it to an emotional Mom. I think the other part of it is how big she thinks she is…she just acts like a big kid (except for the paci I am trying to get rid of). I’ve said it before but I really don’t think she could be more fun…who knew?
