Owen's first experience with " real? food happened today we discovered likes sweet potatoes both mouth surrounding area ;)! His latest thing pulling up, he does it on everything....especially me! Todd is done calling football games...yea, and he?s downhill with master?s....only few weeks go whoo-pee! As for me, not much report.. just trying establish some kind of schedule so I can workout, read Bible, do laundry, etc. on a regular basis....unfortunately Owen doesn?t seem to have the word ?schedule? in his vocabulary yet :).

Todd and Melissa Update - We celebrated our 2nd anniversary! It was fantastic! Todd did a great job of surprising me and took me to a B&B in Wichita. We ate at a great seafood restaurant and then headed back to the B&B to catch the Texas vs. Texas Tech game, which unfortunately I could not stay awake for the end :(. The next day was Sunday so we attended Chapel Hill church and heard an amazing guest speaker named Jerry Traylor. We got some lunch at a place called Doc Green, it's this awesome sandwhich and salad place...we highly recommend it. On Sundays they give you a 15% discount if you have your church bulletin with you, how cool is that! After that we spent the rest of the day shopping and then of course had to eat one more time at good ol' Chipotle. I realize with each and every time we getaway how much I love to be with Todd and it doesn't matter what we're doing...I'm very blessed!
I told you awhile ago that I'd update on how our "Fireproof" study is going and I'm happy to say it's going quite well. I really feel God is blessing this study. Just tonight we had a little time to share and two couples already have seen major changes in their marriage....Praise the Lord! I'm really excited to see what He has in store for the next 4 weeks of the study. It has also been a blessing to work with Todd on getting the lessons ready and doing our homework for it. I still highly recommend seeing the film and if it's made available to you doing the study as well. Well, I think that takes care of the highlights from the last week and a half!

Owen's big workout before he takes a bath! Dad wants to make sure that everyone understands that his hands are not on O and that O's feet weren't holding much his weight. Mom wants everyone to understand she was scared to death!!!
This is O's laugh, ran out of time on the video otherwise it would have been longer! Gotta love hearing baby laughs....they are contagious ;)!

The following week found Todd and I making a pretty spontaneous trip to Hutchinson to see "Shane and Shane" in concert (Todd's favorite group). It ended up being a "Pastor Appreciation" gift...bonus :) thanks Pam! And luckily we have a grandma on stand by that is always ready to spend time with her grandson. A plug for "Shane and Shane"....they're awesome!! Two genuine, authentic, humble, godly men that are very talented and have a great message in their music, so if you ever get a chance check em' out! Tuesday we ate at Gutierrez for staff appreciation dinner...mmm,mmm good! Thursday Todd went to a conference at COR (church of the resurrection) so Grandma came over after work to keep us company and take us out to eat...well, not Owen he doesn't eat anything but cereal. Uncle Kyle drove up from Southwestern college Friday to stay the night and ride out with us to surprise Gramps for his 50th birthday. I'd say mission was accomplished with the surprise, Rick had no idea :)! You can see Owen is up to a few new things in the pictures. He still LOVES walking (with someone's hands) he's even added a little hop/jump when he's super excited to get to his destination. He talks like Donald Duck now, he's closer to doing a somersault than crawling, he's losing a little of his "love for the road", and he got his first ear infection...but loves the amoxicillan :) Well, there you have it!

The Just's took advantage of the fabulous weather that God has provided this week and got outside! Tuesday night Todd played two softball games with the church team while Owen and I cheered :). Owen has become a challenge to hold (he moves, and moves and moves) especially for two ballgames so Pam gave my muscles a break (she's who is holding him in the first picture). Friday night we attended Owen's first Salina South football game. He was pretty tuckered out by halftime so we watched the band and headed back home to eat some cereal and head to bed. Saturday found us at the Rolling Hills Refuge zoo. As you can see Owen wasn't super enthused with the animals, but Mommy and Daddy enjoyed them. At one point Owen was sleeping, but was awoken by the sweet smell of rhino poo :)! The picture of Todd watching the giraffes is the "G" rated one, they were feeling pretty frisky that day. We were worried we were going to have to give Owen "the talk" :). Other events this week included getting a new stove...woohoo! It's offically in the house and should be hooked up tomorrow by my handy dandy husband. The one that came with the house was ancient, and put out a few smells we weren't entirely comfortable with. Let's see, I lost another pregnancy pound, but am still 5 from being to my pre-preggo weight. I'm just waiting for Owen to take off and then I know it'll be gone in no time. And to wrap it up, today Owen spent the afternoon with the Jones' and had a great time!

Owen attended his first Mustang game last night and loved every minute of it! He had the best seat in the house up in the press box next to Daddy who was doing play-by-play for the game. He watched so intensely that he had to take a cat nap during the 3rd quarter. The Mustangs won so everybody left happy :)!
