glutton for punishment?

I really don't like pregnant pictures. I do them so all of you who live far away can see the baby. Eleven more weeks to go.

I'm kind of excited...Doctors visits have stepped up to two weeks - that means we are getting close.

What do you think, Dad, still carrying like I did with Ruth?


Sunday Best

See my new dress? Some friends of Mama and Daddy gave it to me! Mama says I look like a little lady when I wear this dress!

Full Bloom

Ok, so does it make me a bad Mama that I am adding a picture of a flower instead of a picture of my daughter?
This is our first flower (see previous blog). I thought the last picture was pretty cool, but I have been persuaded that a flower in full bloom is much prettier than a flower just beginning to bloom. OR - I could get REALLY philosophical and discourse on the different stages of beauty in a blooming flower, and then draw out the similarities to life, or growing children, etc. But I won't...I will let your own thoughts take you there!
By the way, Ruth fed herself macaroni and cheese tonight - with an adult fork ALL BY HERSELF! My baby is growing up! I know this is supposed to happen (my Mom was kind enough to point that out), but that doesn't mean you are necessarily ready for it when it happens! Honest, I am getting over it.

Growing Like a Well-Tended Flower

Ruth is trying to walk now...however, she is picky as to when she will walk. She won't walk if you are sitting on the floor wanting her to walk to you, she much prefers to test her limits at her own convenience. I hear that is how her Dad was...
While Ruth can say Da-da, she seems to much prefer calling us "Om" and "Ad" when she wants our attention.

Two Years and 2 Days of JOY!!!


I know. Where have I been? I won't give excuses.

Josh and I celebrated two years of marriage on Monday the 16th of April. I cannot thank God enough for the strength, hope and wonderfulness He has given me in Josh! Josh and I have known each other for 4 years, and have been married for two of those four years. Josh and I met four years ago with the hope of just playing cards - that seems to be a Friend Ships trend, by the way.

Do you know what a joy it is to marry your best friend, and to watch each other grow together?
