Elliana at 9 months

For those of you that follow Kelly's Korner, you'll notice that I am TOTALLY stealing her idea. I AM aware of this! :)

I love this idea though and I think it's a great way to document Ellie's life. I only wish I had started blogging when she was first born.

Elliana, this is your life at 9 months old:

~You weigh 14 pounds, 6 ounces, and you are 26 1/4 inches tall.

~You are in the 13th percentile for height and the 1st percentile for weight. You are very small.

~You wear 6-9 month clothing.

~You have two bottom teeth.

~Your hair is starting to come in and I can't quite tell what color it is. In some lighting it looks blonde, and in other lighting it looks light brown. I guess we'll have to wait and see.

~Your nap schedule is starting to change. Some days you'll have two naps, and some days you're doing fine with just one nap.

~You are crawling so well now and you are into EVERYTHING!

~You are also pulling yourself up with the help of chairs, couches, the bathtub, and even walls. I think you'll try to start walking soon.

~Your favorite place to play right now is the bathroom (I have no idea why, I think it's because you like to pull yourself up with the bathtub).

Here are some pictures of you playing in the bathroom:

~Your favorite "toys" are the laundry basket, your pacifier, your bath toys, and your walker.

~You LOVE your baths!

~You LOVE to eat! You'll eat anything we give you. You don't even object to your veggies. Good girl! Right now you eat formula, baby oatmeal, lots of veggies and fruits, and today you started yobaby yogurt.

~You still have a very happy, bubbly personality and you smile at everyone you make eye contact with. You make everyone around you smile.

~You babble all the time and you can say "Mama, Dad-da, and Hi".

~Your current nicknames are Ellie, Missy, and Kiddo.

~You are growing and changing all the time and you bring us SO much joy.

I'm laughing because it looks like she's going to eat the toilet in that second picture. =) Ahhh, I love that girl!

I especially love her in the headband. She's too beautiful for words, Chris! And I'm so thankful for the gift that she is to our family!

About Me

My Photo
I am a daughter of the King. Saved by grace. Follower of Christ. I love my God and I believe that he is faithful and true to his word! I'm still figuring out and trying to follow his plan for my life. I am a wife to my best friend Caleb, a mother to my miracle babies (they are my greatest joy and challenge), a sister and best friend to 3 passionate women, and a daughter to 2 amazing parents that continue to teach me what it is to be real and faithful to God and his word. I am lucky to get to be a stay at home Mom (thanks to God's provision). I love music, singing, coffee, cooking, baking, traveling, our beautiful state of Colorado, and mostly being with the family and friends that I love!

Husband, Caleb

Husband, Caleb
Caleb is an amazing husband and father. He is always so good to me. He is my best friend. He is the romantic one. We love to laugh and spend time together. We've been married for 7 years and I just love that I get to spend the rest of my life with him.

Our 1st Miracle

Our 1st Miracle
Elliana Faith... God blessed us with our first miracle little girl in December 2008. She is sweet, smart, spunky, funny, strong willed, precocious, extremely outgoing, vocal and so full of life! She brings us so much joy.

Our 2nd Miracle

Our 2nd Miracle
Ethan James,.. God blessed us with our little boy in March 2011. Ethan was a bit of a surprise and an even bigger miraclle. Ethan is ALL BOY! He is very active, into sports and running around. He is also sweet, introverted, affectionate, and laid back. These days he often has us laughing, he's starting to show a little bit of "clown" in him. He makes our hearts happy too. :)

Our 3rd Miracle

Our 3rd Miracle
Emsley Jeannette... Our surprise baby girl was born on June 11th, 2013 and came into the world 4 weeks early. Her first 2 weeks of life were spent in the NICU, but due to God's hands and the prayers of many people, she grew quickly and came home to join our family! She is an easy, sweet baby and we are enjoying getting to know her personality.


We fight one day and then the next day we're fine. We're always loud and crazy when we get together. We're very passionate. We've been through it all together, lots of ups and downs. We're eachother's biggest supporters.
