Thanksgiving!

I am so thankful for everything that God has given us. We have such wonderful family and friends. What a fantastic year with so many new babies and marriages! God is so good!

On the 7+ hour drive home from a Texas Thanksgiving, I had lots of time to just watch Caroline sleep. I love looking at her tiny hands, fingers and even fingernails. I watched her tiny eyelids twitching during a dream and wondered what she was dreaming about. Maybe she was dreaming about this boat... Caroline loved playing with William and riding in his boat!

Thank you Grandma Tracy for her homemade sock monkey!

She is truly changing every day. Her new fun thing to do is to use a laundry basket as a walker and push it around the house. I love watching her get it stuck some where and then making baby aggravated noises until she problem solves how to get it where she wants it to go. She now walks a lot more than she crawls. Grammy, Thomas and I have even see her run and hop! She is loving Christmas music and she is always in the mood to dance!
She loves taking clothes out of her drawers (or bowls or tupperware or anything in a non-babyproofed cabinet!) I watched her finally start to realize she can put things back in the drawer/cabinet! Hallelujah! Are we well on our way with having her clean her own room? I doubt it, too.

Video of Caroline Laughing

When I hear my sweet baby laugh it takes my breath away. I think it is an overwhelming feeling of being blessed.
We love her so much! Enjoy the new video!

Caroline Walking!

I know everyone has been checking Caroline's blog every hour just waiting for the video of Caroline walking! The wait is over! Here it is! Our sweet, just turned nine month old daughter-WALKING! She's growing up so fast! (Click on the little triangle)
Disclaimer: Don't worry. I usually insist on Caroline wearing pants, but it was almost bath time.
Disclaimer #2: I know that she probably should not be drinking while walking because of the chance of choking, but--Wow! She can drink and walk at the same time! :-)

My First Halloween


Caroline had her nine month checkup yesterday! Where has time gone? She's 20 lbs, 27 inches. She now tucks her chin down and smiles shyly when we clap for her! She can take around 7 steps now! Hopefully video will be posted tomorrow.
Caroline, Lakyn and Canaan dressed up for bible study/Halloween! We had an animal theme (bee, bat and frog!) More pictures to come!
