My Favorite!

This past Monday with the help of our parents, we did some moving around of furniture and rooms to prepare for Ethan's arrival.

We made the big transition and moved Elliana from her crib into her "big girl" bed. We've been talking about it for weeks and by the time we actually made the move, she was SO ready and excited!

Caleb and I were quite scared to make this transition. We thought Elliana would be getting out of her bed at all hours of the night. We were pleasantly surprised to find that the transition went pretty smoothly and we've only had one bad evening of telling Ellie to get back in bed time and time again.

Ellie's newest thing is to call anything she likes her "fave-wit" (favorite). She has favorite books, favorite movies, favorite food, many, many favorites. Oh yeah, and her favorites change all the time too. :) She even told me the other day that her Daddy is her favorite. Then, when I made a sad face she got close to me, looked me in the eyes and said "Don't be sad Mommy. Mommy's my favorite too." This girl cracks me up!

Anyway, once we had her room all set up, she was so happy that she danced and jumped around and said "my big girl bed is my favorite!" I'm so glad she's pleased. :)

Here's what Ellie's room and new bed looks like:

Please ignore the cardboard. We really don't use it as a headboard. We use it to darken her room at nap time.

Here's Ethan's new nursery:

We still have a lot of things to get for Ethan (including his crib bedding) so his room looks pretty bare right now.

Do you know what my favorite is? This little one right here:

She makes me happy.

I guess I can only get away with calling her my favorite for a few more weeks. Ha ha.

I was reading this post out loud to Jeremy and we were both cracking up at her "favorites." I can't wait to see how the nursery looks when it's done!

Then she can be your favorite girl :)
And Ethan will be your favorite boy.

Her room looks great!

Awwww, I love this post! Ethan's nursery looks GREAT! And I love those last 2 pictures of Ellie, so cute! That story about Ellie's favorites cracks me up, she's hilarious!

How exciting! I meant to mention this to you tonight, but spaced it...The nursery looks great and Ellie's room is adorable. And she looks so grown up in those pictures!

I love the idea of cardboard to darken the room during naps. I have tried to hang a blanket on top of the curtain rod, but that never worked too good. My kids sleep better when it's darker. I will have to try this.

And, I love the new rooms. How fun! I bet Ellie will love her big girl bed.

You're getting so close to meeting baby Ethan!

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.
