So pretty. So sweet.
I'm so in love with this little girl.
5 months old
Someone just discovered her feet! Feet are fun.
Maddie got a Pinkalicious recipe book from the library and made these cake balls from it. She's very interested in learning how to cook. She'll be my kitchen buddy this summer.
We started on solids (if you can call them that) a few weeks ago. Lily liked
the carrots. And she looks quite thoughtful when she eats peas, like
she's having trouble processing what she's tasting, but she eats it
I love when babies sleep with their arm in the air.
She loved her bouncer the first time we put
her in it.
Three months old
She's a thumb sucker like our MaddieGirl!
Mommy's birthday. Gettin' old.
The girls made Valentine decorations. I taught Maddie how to sew a straight line on the sewing machine to make the hearts. Then they each hand-sewed them together. If you only see Ella bouncing around, it's hard to imagine that she's very calm and focused when it comes to school or sewing. She did great!
Oooo. Fancy hair.
I took Maddie for her first real snowboard lesson. She progressed much quicker than her instructor thought she would. Maddie rocks! Here we are on the ski lift. (She was a bit nervous about the height.)
I was born and raised in southern California. It was there that I met my husband, Mark, while he was in seminary and I was finishing up my teaching credentials. I was drawn to his humorous, loud, outgoing personality. Then in the back of a carefully decorated, candle lit, balloon filled, dinner prepped U-haul overlooking the ocean, Mark proposed. We got married and I followed him to the midwest where he now pastors a small church plant. I spend my days loving my awesome husband and my THREE sweet little girls.
