First Smile!

Ethan smiled for the first time on Sunday!!

There's nothing like that first smile to melt my heart and make me happy. AND he smiled at ME!! I'm bragging because Elliana smiled at Caleb for the first time when she was 5 1/2 weeks old and she waited to smile at me for several days. She smiled at me at around 6 weeks old. Ethan was 7 weeks old to the day when he smiled at me on Sunday.

He was in a really good mood and I was changing his diaper and talking to him and smiling at him. He was cooing back and finally looked up at me and just grinned really big! It was awesome!

He has yet to smile at Caleb but I know it will happen soon. It's been hard for Caleb to get time alone with Ethan because Elliana is always stealing his time and attention.

I wish I had a picture of the "big moment", but I haven't been able to capture his smile on camera yet. :( Watch out when I do though, because he is becoming one handsome little boy and he has a charming smile. A little biased? Nah! ;-)

Caleb and I were just saying to each other that things seem to be getting a bit easier around here. We're settling into somewhat of a routine and I don't feel as overwhelmed as I did weeks ago. I still have moments of feeling a bit overwhelmed or anxious, like when both kids are crying and I'm trying to get something done or get out of the door for something, but those moments are happening less and less often. Praise God!

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.
