A Plethora of Pictures

Somehow, Elliana just grew up over night. I don't know where my baby went, but Elliana is a full-blown toddler now. It makes me sad. :(



Caleb and I were both noticing how "grown up" Ellie was this weekend. We couldn't put our finger on what has changed, but we agreed that she is no longer a baby. She is becoming more fun all the time and we keep saying that she is the BEST gift that God has ever given us!



She is communicating so well these days, and she's constantly surprising us by repeating words that we had no idea she could say. I guess it's time to start being careful of what we say in front of her. Ha!

Elliana likes to play in our sink while I dry my hair and put my make-up on. (Don't worry, I stay right next to her the whole time).







This past weekend we spent some time outside and I got some GREAT pictures. Have you ever been on Picnik? It's a fun website that helps you to edit and play with your pictures. I had WAY too much fun playing with some of these.

Take this picture for example. Here is the original:



Here is the same picture in black and white, with a little color.



...and still the same picture.



Here is another original:



I LOVE this effect!



These last 3 are just some new favorites (I didn't do much to them).





I wish I could make time stand still because I would love to keep Elliana small and adorable like this. ;)

Oh my gosh, she DOES look like such a little girl in those pictures. It's like she decided to skip being a toddler.

The toddler stage is so fun. But, the next stage will be fun too. That's the beauty of it. God knows He has to be tender with these mama's hearts...

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!

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.
