Here and There

Random thoughts and stories:

  • I got the most adorable video the other day of Jayna laughing hysterically... Sadly, my blog is not letting me upload it, so ya'll are missing out!
  • Because of hospital bills, we've been stressing out a bit financially. Tonight, as I was teaching, the doorbell rang and by the time I got to the door nobody was in sight. There was an envelope on our doorstep with our name on it with the exact amount we needed to cover this month's hospital bill. Whoever you are, you are Heaven-sent and we can't thank you enough! Neither of us are good at accepting gifts and are very humbled at your kindness and generosity. One day, we will pay it forward!
  • Last week, Jayna and I went to our first official accompanying gig since I quit Boise State. It was for Timberline high school students at district solo festival. One of my students agreed to watch Jayna while I played for the other students. Let's just say that Jayna was the life of the party... Everybody mauled her. She was so exhausted that night from it all that she only made it half-way through her bottle before passing out. Normally she finishes and we put her in her crib while she's still awake. Not that night.
All ready for our first gig

All tuckered out

  • We started introducing Jayna to oatmeal a week or so ago and she hated it. She now has a bottom tooth (like that has anything to do with it) and all of a sudden turns into a ravenous beast anytime I try to feed her... She just can't get it in fast enough! Needless to say, every feeding is followed by a bath. She's getting so big and changing so much I can hardly believe it!


  1. Wow! You truly were blessed from some very thoughtful and generous person! That is so neat!
    Pictures of jay a are hilarious!
    Can't wait to see her and her parents this weekend!

  2. Oh my gosh, every time I see new pictures of Jayna, I am completely blown away by how much she has grown. Of course, Isom was already twice her size at the age that she is now, so I guess she isn't that big. Just much bigger than her little baby self! Very cute pictures.
