Evelynne's 8 month.

 Some days I really find it hard to believe.. My baby girl is eight months... Even though she acts much older than her age I'm still finding it hard to believe she's eight months already.. I cause because it only feels like a few months ago I was experiencing the newness of Motherhood.. I must say though every day of Motherhood just keeps getting better and better. Every new stage of her growing is so much fun and so rewarding. Love this little girl!
At eight months Evelynne is now:
-Walking with assistance.
-Pulling herself up and standing up with no assistance.
-Crawling like a pro!
-Saying "Up" in Sign language.
-Teething at the moment. Still has those two bottom teeth and a top one is going to come through any second -now.. I really hope it's soon! Poor baby just isn't happy when she's teething.
-Loving music, stories, and her baby Einstein.
-Eating stage 3 baby food and pretty much everything in small portions. And boy this girl can eat! Takes after her dad. He can put away a five guys cheese burger, hot dog and a large fry.. At least he used to. He's eating much healthier now.
-Loving her pool.. and water in general.. Bath time is her favorite.
- Waking up usually only once a night now just to nurse. And then she's back to sleep for the rest of the night.
-wearing 9-12 month clothing. Even some 18 m! 
-Loving giraffes.
- Loving her daily walks and is really aware of things.. Yesterday she was looking at everything in sight. So I started to tell her what they were and pointed at them. She gave me the biggest smile like I gave her the answer she has been looking for her whole life.. Now every walk from then she has been wanting to sit on my hip instead of the stroller so she can see  everything. She's one smart piglet!
-Gets excited when she hears Papa on the phone. (yes, I'm trying to get her to call Leon Papa) And loves seeing him when he gets home.
-Getting lots of attention when grocery shopping. Older ladies love her!

 Happy 8 Months My little piglet!! Mama loves you so much and God has blessed me with such a special girl.

At the moment I am...

Recovering from the fantastic trip to six flags that my sister in law Ashley blessed us with for Leon's Graduation present.. Isn't she the best?!?! Loved her since the day we met. She's one of those love at first sight kinda girl...   Leon and I got on our very first roller coaster together. So we can check that off our list! It's nice having a Big strong man to sit next to you before the ride starts!


Thinking about despite of what other people think of me regarding my faith, past mistakes, beliefs and how I mother my beautiful daughter.. I can hold on to the fact that I am loved and cherished by The King! Last week I received a few hate comments about how I parent and my testimony and was called pretty much every name in the book.. I even had to delete some of them because they were just so inappropriate and I didn't want you guys to have to read such filth.. My heart was shaken at first.. What have I done to this person to have them lash at me like that? But Jesus is constantly there for me. Loving me on the days I don't feel loved but instead discouraged.. I am reminded that it is the darkness that tries to cover up the light.. But my friend, I refuse to let this light God has placed in me to be hidden or shaken.. My God is bigger than hate comments.. ;)
Really excited and praising God for the arrival of Selah Abigail!!  Delivered by my blog bestie and sister Sarah who did an amazing job! I so look forward to our daughters being pen pal buddies. :) Happy Birthday Selah!
And I am heartbroken  that millions of babies around the world don't get to have the opportunity to live because of the ignorance and selfishness of others! Abortion needs to stop!
Laughing so hard at this picture!! Evie's just not sure what to think of a little person holding her!! HAHA!
