Lillian has found her voice this month! She also had found her feet, and she loves to suck on her toes. Lillian loves her brothers and sisters and is always excited when they play with her and give her loves. Lillian has also become very aware of Skeeter and she always tries to get a fistful of his hair anytime he is close enough. Skeeter thinks she is the most delicious and yummy smelling little person and always tries to steal licks when mommy is not looking. Lillian is happy! She is wonderfully content whether alone to play or with one or all of her siblings. She also does well with other people holding her, which is different from the other kids. She has decided that Daddy can be okay for short periods of time, especially now that Daddy is clean shaven:).
Four years ago, I met the most beautiful baby that I had ever seen. Those gorgeous, huge, blue eyes looked at me for the first time and my heart completely melted, I knew that Gideon would always be my Giddy.
Gideon was the happiest baby. He hardly ever cried, and even when he did it was only for a minute or two. There was a moment, where Gideon gave a scare, but thankfully Gideon came out on top and thrived. He is a continual reminder to me of how much our Heavenly Father loves us and that angels really do exist.
Giddy is the little sheriff in our family. He knows everybody's business! He is sweet and sensitive. And he gives the best hugs! I am so glad that as a family we have been blessed to spend every day for the last four years with him.
It is amazing to think that it has already been two years since we met Evelyn. She came into our family like a little whirlwind and none of us have been the same.
Ezzy is a sweet, spunky and fun little girl. She loves her older sister and brother and loves anytime she gets to play like big kids with them. She and Giddy are buddies and they get along pretty well during the day when the big kids are at school. Evelyn loves Lillian and gets very concerned when she cries. Ezzy is a true joy to be around and she always keeps things interesting. Love you Princess!
Happy 4 months to this little Lily Bug. Lillian is a happy and content little baby. She can roll over and she enjoys sitting in the Bumbo so that she can watch the kids. Lillian loves to talk and show us how well she can use her sweet little voice. She is a great eater,which helps her keep her chubby cheeks, and a super sleeper much to her mama's delight. Lillian is very quick to smile and hardly ever cries. We are so lucky to have Lillian as a part of our family.
8 years ago Elijah was born on a cold morning in the mountains of West Virginia. He was a sweet and adorable little baby.
Today Elijah turns 8! He is still very sweet and very handsome. He is a quick learner and he soaks up learning like a sponge. Elijah is the best big brother. He is patient and kind with his siblings. Elijah loves all things sea life, space related and anything dinosaurs. He knows all kinds of interesting facts about all kinds of things. Elijah is a delight and a pleasure to be around. Elijah is a good boy, and he is excited to be baptized in a few weeks.
This silly little girl has really changed in the last few months. She is saying a lot more words and she is getting better and better at getting her point across, especially when she is telling on one of her siblings. She knows the other kids names, but she calls Emme "Sissy," Elijah is "ig brudd" and Giddy is just "brudder," usually yelled or screamed and Lillian is only "baby," never Lily or Lillian. She is a silly little person with a funny personality. She is very content to play alone and she loves going in her room and playing by herself and depending on her mood you may or may not be allowed in. She loves Mickey Mouse, not Minnie, everything has to be Mickey like Giddy's stuff. She knows some colors and she knows a few animals. Not farm animals, but you know like owls and fish and cool ones like that. Lol She loves to dance especially on tables. She knows all of my tunes and she will sing along and jam with me in the car. She is tiny for her age and everywhere we go people are "amazed that she can walk so well." Ezzy definitely is the life of the party and super fun to be around.
