Hannah is Six Months!

Hannah Grace, you are 6 months old (and some days)! 

You have officially entered my most favorite baby stage ever!!  I love just about everything about it!  Your stats:

Weight - 17 pounds, 15 ounces
Length - 26.25 inches

You are 75th percentile all the way around...except head and that is 30%.  I like little heads! :)  Your appointment yesterday went great!  You are just growing and a little joy!

You wear 6-9 month clothes exclusively and have even worn a few 12 months but they are pretty big!  You are in size 3 diaper and don't wear shoes much!  It's hot outside and Mommy prefers to be barefoot and can't so you get to! :) 

During the week, you nurse in the morning and before bed and have two 6 ounce bottles during the day.  You nurse more on the weekends.  You also eat 2 jars of baby food a day!  You DO NOT like green veggies at all!  You gag and make a horrible face!  You LOVE carrots, sweet potatoes, and peaches.  I want to try avocado today!  It's green so we wi…


As I write today's post I am heavy hearted.  I really kind of feel like I needed to get that out there on the table.  There are days, weeks, and seasons when things just are hard.  God never promised that this life would be easy and He never promised that we would not have heartaches and storms but He did promise that He would be with us; that He would never leave or forsake us.  So, right now, I am asking for God to be near - to me and to all of those that I love that are hurting.

Last Monday started off like the girls ready and off to school/work we went.  The thing is that I had a friend on my mind.  A friend that I don't talk with much, but the fact that I could not get her off my mind was not alarming to me, really, but I just knew I needed to tell her I was thinking about her.  So, I did.  We texted and then I called her.  We got to visit for a few minutes about life...nothing specific but just conversation like we usually have.  Neither of us knew what that…

He Is Risen!

I love Easter!  I just has a "feel good" tone to the entire day!  For me, Easter has not always been about what Christ did for us because growing up I didn't really learn the details about those things.  I think I had the knowledge in general that Christ died and rose again but did not really equate that with Easter.  That is something that I want to be totally different when my girls think back on Easter.  My girls are still young but I want to always instill in them the Biblical reasons why we celebrate Easter and Christmas.  We are created by God for the sole purpose of worshipping and loving Him ~ nothing else in this life matters!  That is the message I want my children to understand. 

This song is what this holiday is about! Blessed Redeemer
We had nursery duty yesterday so Brice and I got to celebrate our risen Savior with 3 and 4 year olds!  Four of them!  We love those little guys!!  They were full of energy and so much fun!  The girls looked adorable in their E…

So Much to Do, So Little Time!

What have we been up to?  A LOT!  It has been so long since I have blogged and I am going to try and make this as short and complete as possible!!! :) 
Lauren turned 3 years old!!!!  I took off work on her birthday to take her on her special day out.  We went to Rainforest Cafe and did a little shopping.  We had McDonald's for breakfast and it was just a super special day with my favorite middle child!! :) 

Her birthday party was at Pump It Up again this year which is a giant jump house place.  Last year she didn't love it but this year...SHE DID!!!  Her party was Mickey Mouse themed with some other characters thrown in.  She is a little obsessed with Mickey Mouse right now! :) 

Her current stats at the doctor's office are: 44 lbs, 41 inches!  She is 100th percentile for both!!!  My big beautiful girl!!  :)

Rachel is just...Rachel.  Does anyone else think that 5 years old is just the most annoying phase ever?!  She never stops talking!!!  No, in all seriousness, she is such…
