Jump For Joy, My Friends.

Wouldn't life be ideal if we could sit in our doorways and just jump and bounce and bob? And be completely content and happy to do so? Observing our little universes, grinning at the people in our lives, and just being blissfully happy?




Yep... Pretty great.

(Thanks for the overwhelming response to my handsome hubby tag... It was fun to do, fun to look back on our better-looking years, and fun to see how much you guys got a kick out of it, too!)

  1. What are you talking about "better looking years"?

    I think you look wonderful *now*.

    Don't get caught in Grandma's rut - I remember watching old home movies with her one time and the main thing I remember her saying is something about "skinny Grandma" - all the time. I love her, goodness knows, but it got a bit distracting.

    And I suspect we (all of us) are always going to think we used to look better "then" - but I seriously LOVE, LOVE your pictures now. You're a beautiful lady, sis.

    Love you-
    Juli

  5. As soon as I saw the title, I thought "Oh YAY, they put him in one of those jumper things!" Wheeee! Thanks for letting us be a part of Noah's inaugural Jumping! I giggled the whole time.

    And while Noah is the star of the show in these wonderful little videos you share with us, Emz, I love love love hearing you laugh as you film...that *real*, belly-deep laugh that makes me laugh too.

  8. This post pushed me over the edge! I've been debating buying one of the jumperoos, but we have so many big baby things around the house already so after I watched Noah hiccup, jump, and giggle, I went to ebay and found someone selling one the next town over. So, I won the auction, and they're letting me pick it up to save shipping! I can't wait to get Claira jumping!
