while driving home from church this am, i hit the tim's drive throu for a snack/lunch.  i gave nate his and i heard him unwrap it, take the package and smooth it on his lap, i watch him take the pieces a part and spread it out. then i heard him sigh and say

"ahhhhh, the beauty of my lunch"

us this am.  he is such a funny kid
we have this on going battle over who is greater the power rangers or god.  i keep winning. haha
but i love how it has his thinking all the time about how to stump me, which he never does cause god is greater than the power rangers!

happy 9 month birthday ellie!

moments old
first visitor
3rd person to hold her

Can you believe she’s been out longer than she was in!

My little peaceful, calm, delight. Oh how I love this baby girl.  What a sheer joy she has been and continues to be.  I can not get over how much life she brings to our family. I often wish I called her eliana joy!  My little bundle of joy

My little ellie rhe,

I carried you for almost 9 months.  What a ride that was! I was so concerned for you, so stressed and worried. I wish I could say I was relaxed and joyful during my pregnancy.  It wasn’t until after you were out and in my arms that I felt the pressure leave and I knew you would be ok.  Everything will be ok.

Ellie girl, your birth was so peaceful and wonderful.  Your first 9 months have been such fun.  You fill my days with smiles, laughs, jumps, snuggles, sitting with me, on me,  I love your gummy baby kisses.  Your cheeks begged to be kissed!  Your toes!  Your fingers!  How you cuddle your body into my arms, turning your shoulders and reach up to my face as you stare into my eyes while your have your bottle.  Those moments are indescribable.

You wake up smiling, kicking and ready to fly.  You go to sleep with a smile.  You love, love to jump in your jumper especially to music.  You kick your feet to the beat of what ever music is playing.  You love to stare at people until they notice you, then you reward them with a giggle

I hog you, I admit it. The few hours I spend with you each day is so precious to me because I know that I will never have today again, I must live it and love it to the fullest.. 

How many nights have I spent rocking you as you sleep? Too many to count, I loved every second of it.  The nights are my time with you, to look at you, to kiss your face and fingers, to pray over you, to love you. 

Having you has taken me to a place of peace.  A place of just enjoying the simple things. Stopping and taking the time to just watch you and your brother.  I  will never have these days with you, I want to spend them wisely. 

Ellie baby girl. We adore you!  Happy most wonderful 9 month birthday!

Most of all, above everything, I am in awe of gods blessing, to give us this gift when we thought it was over.  Lord, you know my inner most thoughts and feelings, so you know how grateful I am….help me to raise these kids the way that you want them raised. 

Thank you lord. You are faithful!
