Miss Baby is 2!!!

2 years ago we welcomed into the world our sweet Miss Baby. We drove to the hospital the night prior - it was COLD, there was the possibility of ice on the roads, we were excited and ready to meet our baby girl.

1 day old - pretty girl!


 Howdy folks!

 Look Ma! A tooth!

Playtime with Daddy!

Big blue eyes!

1 year old - quite serious :)

Standing and having lots of fun!

 Got teeth?

 Her favorite smile when the camera appears...

Thanksgiving 2010

The whole bunch...she is surrounded by LOVE!

Pink is her favorite color :)

Movie time! Oldest and youngest....

Birthday dinner - she likes chocolate A LOT and pancakes!!!

Birthday, after dinner :)

She was a tiny thing and absolutely beautiful! She has been a constant joy in our lives. Today, she is all of 2, full of life, laughter, and mischief at every turn! She has begun singing songs of late and will sing "Ring Around the Rosies" over and over again to the delight of us all. She also likes to hold hands and act it out, always ending as they fall down with a loud "Ow" and a giggle and big smile.  :)   She tries her best to sing along with me at bedtime as I sing "Praise God from Whom All Blessings Flow" to her right before she gets in her crib. Her bangs are long enough now that we have to put a barrette in to keep them out of her big blue eyes! She has pretty much all her teeth in now and has the sweetest little grin :) If the camera comes out, she gives you a big grin complete with her eyes squeezed shut tight! She enjoys watching Wall-E, Bolt, Pooh, and anything else her big brothers and sisters want to see, even "Opmus Pwime" cartoons w/the boys :) But, her FAVORITE movie at present is "Frosty the Snowman" for sure! She likes horses a lot, like her big sisters. Every night lately she wants to hear "A Crack in the Track" or "Chugga Chugga Choo Choo" read over and over at bedtime. She dances to music with the big girls and dances to cartoon theme songs as well. She is absolutely precious. She gets on the scale and proudly proclaims that she weighs "99 cents" to one and all. She tattles on her brothers when they run at the church house to everyone who will listen. She is our sweet Miss Baby and she always will be. I don't know when, if ever, I'll start calling her Little Miss or Little Miss E, but we'll see. She has been running up to me the past few days holding up her hands to be picked up and telling me "I'm your baby!" and she is...and I love her so much. Happy Birthday Little Miss Baby E!  :)

Don't grow up too fast, too soon.....Little Miss Baby :)

Today is my Big Sister's Birthday!

Happy Birthday Wishes to my big sis - wish I was closer and we could go out for lunch and dessert! I am very thankful that I have you in my life. I look forward to talking to you every day and hope that never changes as we grow older and grayer ;) I am praying for you always and hope today is a wonderful day filled with love and laughter as you are surrounded by your precious little ones and loving husband.

The preschool bus....

I must confess, it makes me sad to see children go off to school, period, but the preschool (3's and 4's) bus that just passed by my window makes me sadder.

I am thankful to be able to stay home w/the children and teach them as they grow. I am blessed abundantly.
