my sweet lily,

happy birthday!

i can hardly believe that four years ago you were born.  it has truly gone by in the blink of an eye.  it is amazing to watch you grow into a little girl and we are so proud of who you are becoming.

you have made our lives so much richer.  you are so spunky, so sensitive, so caring and so very passionate.  we absolutely adore everything about you and not a day goes by that i am not overcome by the joy it is to be your mama.

on your birthday, we hope you feel overwhelmed by the love that your friends, family and the Lord have for you.  we love you so much, sweet nin!

almost one



almost four
happy birthday!

thank you. thank you. thank you.

thank you so much to all of our amazing friends and family for your support and prayers over the last few weeks.  we are finding so much strength through you all.

we are praying earnestly that this sweet little baby stays nestled in until it is full term and the time is right for it to be born.  the last few days have been much better than the preceding few weeks.  and we are finding so much hope in that.

thank you for your love and prayers.  they mean the world to us right now.

::his sweet time::

we are so happy to report that this is finally finn's preferred method of transportation around the house.

we don't even have to bribe him with crackers or anything anymore.

and it's a good thing because he has a doctor's appointment soon and if he wasn't walking by then, a further evaluation was on his horizon.  phew!

it's not like stubbornness runs in the family or anything...

(does it look like he just got off a horse?)

i look forward to so much in this year.

my baby girl is going to turn four (four! doesn't that seem so old!?)

we will visit sam in australia!!!

we look with eager anticipation to welcoming a new member to our family!

my husband will start his last year of residency!

i think 2011 is going to be a wonderful year.  i look forward to growth as a family, as a mother and wife and to grow closer to the Lord.

happy new year!
