As Promised

It's been a pretty slow week around here for us.

Although some would even consider it somewhat boring, I'm not complaining. I've realized that it's the slower weeks that I spend more quality time with Ellie. On the weeks that I have a ton of errands to run, and lots of things to do, I feel as though Elliana doesn't get quality time with me. Sure, she's with me all day, but what fun am I when my mind is on other things?

I've really cherished this week with Ellie. We've read a lot of books together and just spent a lot of time playing together. I know some day I'm really going to miss this time with her. There's also a good chance that very soon our time together, just the two of us, will go down to 2 1/2 days a week (I'll give details to this later).

So, while it's been a slow week, it's also been a good one of getting to know my daughter even better.

I have some great pictures and videos to show for it. I promised in my previous post that I would update the blog with some photos and/or videos of Miss Elliana. We started putting her hair up a few times this week. She doesn't have a ton of hair, but I figured it was time for her to get used to having her hair done. My sister Jenn put Ellie's hair in pigtails yesterday. Cute, huh?!

Some of these pictures were taken with camera phones, so they aren't great. Sorry. Here she is wearing her sunglasses. She got these from her cousin Abby. She just loves them, she feels really cool when she wears them.

Elliana's newest thing is that she wants to "help" me with whatever I'm doing. She loves to help with laundry, the dishes, and even putting things away. She climbed into the dryer (with my help) when I was doing laundry. I think she thought I was crazy at first, but then she loved it! Don't worry, I would never let her do this if I wasn't watching closely, and she can't climb in by herself.

She also loves to climb into boxes and baskets. This is the toy basket that holds all of her bath toys.

This picture makes me laugh every time. It looks like she's announcing "I've conquered the basket"!

Here are two videos I took this week. I just love this girl.

Despite our slow week, we have a pretty busy weekend ahead. Friday night we're having dinner with some friends. Saturday, I'm going to a basketball game with my Dad. It's a tradition that my christmas gift to him every year is a date to a game. And Sunday, we're going to church and then my sister Courtney's house for the Superbowl. I love the Superbowl. I hate to admit it, I mostly enjoy it for the socializing and yummy food (Caleb would be so disappointed) ;).

Have a lovely weekend.

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
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.
