Eight Months with Caroline and a video!


 The next two are blurry...but I couldn't help but post them. So much happiness!

In case you're wondering...this is how I get her to laugh for pictures ;)

Happy Eight Months sweet baby!

I love these pictures of you.  They capture your joy so perfectly.  You love to flash that sweet smile to strangers and you use it to make them fall completely in love with you...even if they are just checking us out at the grocery store.  There is something special about you, girl.  Your joy is contagious and I can't wait to see how you use this to make this world a brighter, happier place just by being you.

Seven Months with Caroline

Welp, it happened.  I got behind on the blog again.  School started and I have fallen into a black hole of lesson plans, newsletters, e-mails, and Pinterest.  My apologies.

And now that Caroline is already 8 months, I think it is fitting that I now post her 7-month post....more to come soon!

I'm bored, mom.

Caroline - 
I'm sorry that I'm falling behind on your month-to-month posts, but in all honesty it's probably good for you.  Hopefully your dad and I will have more kids and then we will be lucky if we can snap your first day of school picture before we hurry you onto the bus while your younger siblings are throwing temper tantrums about who knows what...  I say all this to tell you that you won't always be the center of our world and that's okay.  My hope for you every day is that Jesus would be at the center of your world and that you would be so secure in His love and the love that your dad and I have for you that you won't mind when you aren't the center of attention.  You are so loved and such a joy.  Thank you!

Six Months with Caroline

loving those toes! 

6 months going on 16...

Sweet Caroline,

I remember before you were born I used to look at your 6 month clothes and wonder how such a tiny thing could ever fit into those "huge" clothes.  Yet here we are and you are growing bigger every day.   Sometimes an outfit that fit you yesterday is suddenly too small.  Your personality remains sweet and smiley, although we've seen a new side to that since you've started teething.  You have a new nickname as a result:  "Caro-whiney."  Unfortunately for you, I think that nickname will stick long past your infancy :)

You went to the beach for the first time this month.  You got to meet some family friends fro the first time and people started calling you "cueball" because of your bald head (bahahaha).  Don't worry!  I'm sure you'll have some hair by the time your 2nd birthday rolls around.

We moved to a new apartment just outside Boston and you have been a source of joy through a difficult transition.  It doesn't bother you that there are boxes everywhere, that we don't yet have a couch, or that our apartment is approximately the size of a shoebox.  We can't believe that in another six months of fun, fussiness, and fancy headbands (much to your Dada's chagrin), you'll be one!

Memorial Day Weekend

Hi!  I'm playing a bit of catch-up here.  We came home to Virginia for Memorial Day weekend to celebrate a friend's wedding and visit with family.  To say we had a great time would be an understatement.  This post is very picture-heavy, so I'll let the pictures do the talking...

Baby's first plane ride!

And finishing the weekend off with fun at the river!

 "Ben, how does the water feel?"  "Good!  It feels just like ice cream!"
