Child of the Covenant

Sweet Caroline was baptized by her great grandfather today. It was truly a blessed event. So grateful to God for this precious covenant and for the gift of our second Covenant child.

Tummy Love

Last week little C learned to roll onto her tummy. Can hardly keep this little one on her back now. She really loves her new found talent. I'm afraid she will be on the move far earlier than her big sister. Watch out world!

Summer Fun

Mad at myself for not taking the time to run inside and grab the real camera. I was too afraid I'd miss the moment. These pics will have to do. Love the classic summer fun, and the vintage quality of these photos. And P.S. Ella really loves her rain boots. :)

4 Months, What a Gift

One year ago today I discovered that we were (finally) expecting one of our lives biggest blessings! After 15 long months of trying, we finally got that positive test. It was a really special, happy day. This day is also my mom's birthday, so we gave her the test wrapped as a gift. :) Don't think she was expecting that one.

She is growing so fast! Our little peanut is currently in the 25% percentile for all stats, weighing in at 12 lbs. 3 oz. Ella was 11 lbs. 10 oz. at 2 months! :) Learning every day how very different 2 siblings can be. She is such a happy little soul, always flashing her gummy grin. A few days ago she started rolling from back to tummy- getting stuck and upset during naps too. She is loving playing in her exersaucer and is constantly becoming more aware of her surroundings. No solids yet. Trying to hold out until 6 months if we can. We'll see. Not feeling too hot after her 4 month shots- poor baby was so fussy last night, crying more than she ever has in her short little life. And today she's running a fever. So sad. First time she's really been under the weather. Love this little one. Our precious gift.

All About the Big Girl

Seems like since the newest addition arrived the blog has been all about the baby. To be expected. So what has our big girl been up to? Lots! She is such a character- a challenge, a ham, a sweet little pumpkin. She has really been testing her independence these days- choosing her outfits, dressing herself, really wanting to do everything for herself.

Her imagination is exploding- I smile to myself all day as I listen to and watch her play. She has one creative mind. And did I mention her invisible friends? Her most consistent invisible pals are "Holly" and "Rudolph." Oh, and her dog "Sparky." She really gets into playing with them- especially "Holly." Cracks me up on a daily basis. She loves to paint, play with play-doh, all things princess, dig in the dirt,dance and she really loves to read. I adore this little blessing!

Little Clown

In January we went to the circus. Ella really loved it. Especially the clowns. On 2 separate occasions over the last several months she has decided to paint her mouth like a clown. Both times she has come out of my room exclaiming- "Do I look like a clown?!" Yes, Ella, yes you do. You try keeping a straight face at that one.

Milestone A Minute

This girl has been blazing through the milestones lately- newest tricks include lots of laughing, spitting (or raspberries), rolling over from tummy to back and the latest- holding a toy and putting it in her mouth. She is sleeping like a champ lately, 11-12 hours a night. Mama is pleased!

Sweet Chubs

Ahh, this photo makes mama so happy! Look at those sweet, chubby little thighs. Mama has worked hard for that! Now that we have my diet (no dairy no soy) figured out, little C is doing so much better, and finally putting on weight like she should be. Could she be more relaxed?
