Happy 100th Post!


Even Asher can't contain his joy!

I finally did it. Hours, some wasted, some purposeful, have led me to this moment. This is officially my 100th post.

So, to celebrate, here's what I would really love to happen...I would like to receive 100 comments! Some of you may ask, "Is this just a pathetic, blatent comment solicitation so you can feel loved and important?" In a word--yes.

So if you don't mind, just leave a little shout-out (or 3) in the comment area. I'm not requesting anything long or profound...just a brief, "Thanks for the bright spot that you provide in my day" or "What did I do before I had your blog to read?" or "Could you post about something other than your kid every now and then?" (The answer is "no," by the way.) You don't even have to leave your name--how much easier could this be! Just say "hi" and be about your business.

Come on guys! You don't have to know me or even like me...just humor me :)

***Updated updated update at 11:13 pm: First of all, why am I not asleep??? Secondly, we are almost there! Ok--new rule...I need 4 more comments and I would really like them to be from 4 people who have not yet commented. So if you are reading this and you haven't left your own insightful remark, please feel free to do so!

Special thanks to Kathy, Robin, Susanna, Denise, Lis, and Hilary for the sheer volume of comments they left. I do believe Kathy wins the "Most Posts Left" Award, which she can add to her "Honors and Awards" section on her blog.

Thanks to Aunt Ginny for figuring out how to leave a comment and doing so :)

Thanks to Tye's Grammy for her sweet remarks!

Thanks to my mom for answering the question everyone has always had regarding me..."Why is Jamie like that?'" Now they know.

So 4 more...who will it be???

***Updated update at 5:05: We are almost there. Granted, if I limited each person to one comment, I would still need about 90 more, but this has been fun! Thanks to everyone for humoring me! You guys are the best!

Anyboby else who doesn't usually comment care to get in on the action???****

***Update at 11:21 am on Thursday: Multiple comments from the same person totally counts, so don't think I'm cheating when you find out that most of the "36 insightful remarks" have come mostly from the same 5 people. We are almost half way there...who else has something to share? ***

Jamie, I check your blog often. Love reading your comments and seeing how Asher is growing. You make good sense. With love, Tye's Grammy

Robin said...

Hi!

Robin said...

Just trying to help out a bit.

Robin said...

Although you have a long way to go.

the kirkseys said...

Ok...so um, I'll start it!! Happy 100th post!!! I'll come back everyday and leave a comment until you have 100. : )

the kirkseys said...

You're really cool!

the kirkseys said...

Asher is really cool!

the kirkseys said...

Kris is really cool!

the kirkseys said...

Any other child that you have someday will be really cool too

the kirkseys said...

Your red walls in your living room are cool

the kirkseys said...

I love the new pic at the top of your blog

the kirkseys said...

Asher's dumbo is cool

Jamie said...

Thanks to Susanna, Robin, and Tye's Grammy :)

See how fun this is! Everyone...join in!

(And yes, I'm counting my own comment in the total)

Robin said...

When this post gets 100 comments, do you think your other posts will feel bad?

Robin said...

Hey - you missed publishing one of my other comments! Every comment counts.

Julee Casey said...

Love the bumbo!! Got one in pink!! He sure is a cutie!!

Robin said...

Ok, that's enough comments for tonight.

hilarylarson said...

Love your blog!

hilarylarson said...

hello :)

hilarylarson said...

hilarylarson said...

asher's blog is great too...

hilarylarson said...

hope you get 100 comments, i will keep leaving comments, i do not know if they are really insightful?

hilarylarson said...

will is crysing & teething & trying to go back to sleep, i would rather be sleeping, glad i could help out, i kind of feel productive...

Anonymous said...

Read it all the time. Tell Kris he needs to write some. Sorry we didn't catch up when Stacie and I were in town. Bowsers

Aunt Ginny said...

OK! I'll try this! I love reading your blog!!

thelittlefields said...

Wow, I'm pretty slow about checking blogs, or I woulds have commented earlier

thelittlefields said...

I'm impressed with 100 posts!

thelittlefields said...

I am also impressed with your sonsistency in posting

thelittlefields said...

Dirk had a good time with Kris yesterday

thelittlefields said...

What happens with you get over 100 posts?

thelittlefields said...

will you delete the lame ones?

thelittlefields said...

Josiah is crying--be back

thelittlefields said...

Man, your dots are going to grow now!

thelittlefields said...

You've done a great job improving the layout of the blog!

thelittlefields said...

However, since I cannot be trusted to even print our pictures of my own son, I doubt I could be creative enough to create my own layout for our blog. Plus Dirk would have to approve it.

thelittlefields said...

Oh, and THANKS for my Rockin' Girl Blogger award! I put it on our 'about the Littlefields' Page. I have an area dedicated to my honors and distinctions--soon to be filled, I'm sure.

Bethany said...

Hey Jamie...

Nice comment idea, and congrats on your 100th post. Cute surf pup shirt on Asher. Tye has it too...surprise, surprise! Enjoy the comments... and I am one of your faithful readers.

Traci said...

I am also one of your faithful readers. So thank you for the insightful blog that is yours!

Traci said...

I aspire to be a blogger like you! I've started one, tho private. I'll send you the info and add you on if you want! -Traci

Traci said...

Congrats on 100 posts! Now you should be 40% to your 100 comments goal.....

Robin said...

If you add up the comments I've ever gotten on my blog, I don't think it would even be 100.

Sad.

Robin said...

I think you should turn off comment moderation.

Robin said...

Oh, and if you didn't know already, I read your blog all the time.

That's why my dot is so big.

Robin said...

I'm also happy to see you posting all the time now. The three or four times a month thing just wasn't enough.

Robin said...

Did you know that the majority of my blog readers come from your blog (minus the ones you check it directly).

Go site meter.

Robin said...

If you turned comment moderation off, I could see how many comments I've left. I already forgot what I said.

Robin said...

I can't believe I told you about that Sam Houston thing.

Robin said...

Random Sam Fact:

He was born in Virginia in 1793.

Robin said...

Oh, I see that your comments are labeled as "insightful remarks" under each post.

I think you might need to change that. At least for me - my comments are not insightful. Especially not the past few.

I write insightful things on my blog, but I just don't publish them :)

Robin said...

When you reach 100, we'll have to go celebrate!

You know...whenever the next time I happen to be in town and we hang out.

the kirkseys said...

I agree with anonymous. You do make good sense.

the kirkseys said...

Hey, wasn't that last comment #50?

the kirkseys said...

Hope you have a great day

the kirkseys said...

three is my limit (ok 4) for today. thanks for challenging us fellow bloggers in an unchallenging day and age.

the kirkseys said...

Ok. Wait a minute. I don't think you're own comments count.

Denise said...

Jamie, I think your blog rocks!

Denise said...

And Asher is soo soo cute!

Denise said...

Just between us, preemie babies are the cutest! ;)

Denise said...

Just trying to help a Sister out! God bless!!

Denise said...

Is there a reward for being the 100th comment? Like will you post about the winner and how wonderful they are?

Denise said...

In case you are wondering, bed rest is NO fun!

thelittlefields said...

So I had to check back and see how your comments have been growing--looking good!

thelittlefields said...

Get this: I just planned a 2 week menu and corresponding grocery list! Go me!

thelittlefields said...

Of course, we're going out of town the week after next, so it makes it a little less impressive.

thelittlefields said...

I'm getting so domestic! Crazy. Its only taken me 5 years.

thelittlefields said...

And I am going to attempt making my own wipes--I'll let you know how it goes tomorrow.

thelittlefields said...

I'm just typing about random stuff instead of actually commenting on the blog post, but I think this counts anyway.

thelittlefields said...

Just remember me when we get to our 100th post, in like 2 or 3 years! I expect comments!!

thelittlefields said...

So do you get an email every time someone comments? If so, I bet that's annoying right now

thelittlefields said...

I still havent moved my carseat back to the middle. But I also haven't gotten in the car since Tuesday. Wow, thats pretty sad.

thelittlefields said...

Ok, how many comments now????

Serg and Lis said...

I'm going to join in here.....Asher, we missed you yesterday...

Serg and Lis said...

....any teeth yet???

Serg and Lis said...

Jamie, I have to say that your Blog is one of the most uplifting, Blogs....

Serg and Lis said...

....and it is so neat to see how you love your family--it shows in these Blogs!!!

Serg and Lis said...

One hundred posts seems like alot of work!!!:) Great job girly:)

Serg and Lis said...

Asher, you will have big Blog shoes to fill;)

Serg and Lis said...

How many more comments do you need???

Mamaw said...

I don't have my first cup of coffee or even take a breathing treatment before I read Jamie's blog....nor do I take my high blood pressure pill... Yes, it is the blog that gets me going in the morning.

Mamaw said...

Is it just me.....or is that one of the most beautiful babies ever born....ok....I am his mamaw,but I know for a fact that both his mother and father were very beautiful when they were babies.

Devoted Reader said...

Come to think of it......Jamie's dad was a beautiful baby.....I have his mother's phone number if you don't believe me....call her.....she'll tell you....... and Jamie's mom! WOW! What a knock-out! She is just a beautiful on the inside.... and just if you were thinking this is Asher's Mamaw again......well, it's not! OK!!!!!!! It is totally someone else.....

Anonymous said...

Jamie,
I love the blog. I have learned a lot about you since I started reading it. Sorry I never paid that much attention to you growing up. You seem like a wonderful person.
love,
mom

Kris' mother-in-law said...

I went and gave blood today.........I go just to get the HIV test......but I always tell them that I just want to do my civic duty......HA HA HA......They fall for it everytime........ ok, I am just kidding......

Your Mother said...

Tonight is a lame night for TV. I may just re-read all of your blogs. Keep up the good work.

thelittlefields said...

Oh! you're almost there!

Serg and Lis said...

let's see 15 remarks to go....

thelittlefields said...

Woohoo! 14 more! You're almost there!

thelittlefields said...

I can;t wait to see who will be #100!!! Will it be me?

thelittlefields said...

So aren't you so impressed with my taste in bedding for Rebecca? I mean, even from Houston I was able to help her out like that....

thelittlefields said...

I'm running out of fun things to say here...

thelittlefields said...

Who's it gonna be....whoooooos it gonna be?

thelittlefields said...

YOu should have an award for the 100th commentor.
(I think it could be me!!)

thelittlefields said...

C'mon, update, update!! I want to see who hits 100! This is like that game show "Press Your Luck"

No whammies, no whammmies, STOP!!

thelittlefields said...

Your mom is awesome. I just reread her comments... great stuff.

thelittlefields said...

I am officially out of fun things to say.

Patsi Daze said...

I love reading your blog...One of my favorite posts...well, actually I have several...but love watching Asher grow...and I'm thinking this last photo is a little Kris..

Robin said...

almost there!

Dirk said...

Kathy is trying not to comment so that you can get the last 4 posts from new people, like me. But she would like to thank you for the award of "most comments" on this posts. She would also like to thank her son for being supportive, her husband for being gone so she can comment, the trusty laptop for providing access to this blog, and most importantly God because no acceptance speech is complete without mentioning Him. If could see her just imagine her kissing her fingers and pointing to the sky. --Dirk

Laura said...

Ok, so I'm a little behind at checking other blogs...sorry...but now I can contribute towards the goal of 100 comments. Glad I didn't miss this momentous occasion.

Asher said...

Happy 100th, Mom! You're the best Mom ever. Every kid should have a Mom as great as you.

Love,
Asher

Robin said...

I would like everyone to know that the contest as to who would be #100 was rigged.

Rigged!

mandycrowell said...

Hi there..I know I'm late, but it's been crazy around here. I'm sorry I missed your request, but hopefully this will enable you to say you actually got 101 comments!! And from someone different!

Rebecca said...

I am so sorry I was out of town during all of this! I would have helped out for sure!!
