August 31st is steadily approaching!


This year has been abundant with blessings...I've been filled to overflowing with the love of my family and with the love of the Lord. I'm in awe of how God knows EXACTLY what we need in this life...He knew what he was doing when he surprised us with Lillie Anna's life. I feel as if there are no adequate words to describe our little one...she's made life so much more beautiful and sweet...and I love her more than words could ever express. But I'll save all those thoughts for her birthday post! I just wanted to document a few of the things she's started doing over the past month. :-)

She's learned that Chase is the equivalent of a vacuum cleaner and has also graduated from her high chair to her booster seat.


She's discovered Chad's wallet and makes a beeline for it anytime it's laying around...smart girl...poor daddy. ;-p

She's made a few successful attempts at walking, but it seems that her motivation is her best friend, Noah. And when Noah's not around to light a fire under her rump, she reverts to crawling. And man-alive...that girl can crawl FAST!

She's still our little smiley-pea...and in case you can't tell, we love her little naked body....in my opinion, there's not much cuter than a pot-bellied baby!

And she totally adores anything that involves baby dolls...it really seems like she thinks they are REAL. She'll hold her arms out to them, hug them and squeeze them, and has even begun opening her mouth to kiss their cheeks. It is C-U-T-E!

I can't believe our "baby" turns one in less than two weeks!

She's precious! It's amazing how quickly babies grow up, especially when they have older siblings to keep Mama busy! Would love to get our little ones together sometime! They just might smile and kiss each other to pieces!

Lillie Anna is such a doll! It's hard to believe that she's already 1! They do grow up way too fast!

Almost a year already! I think you and I are serious kindred spirits... In January I posted about how all the dairy products at Walmart wouldn't expire until after I was going to have had Carigan! It's weird to look at a carton on milk and know that your life will change forever before it sours!

Adorable pics! She's such an amazing, special little girl! (did I say little girl? When did she graduate from "baby girl???")

It's such a joy to share in her life!
