Ileigh Grace- 11 months

Wow, 11 months. Crazy.

Ileigh, you are a fantastic crawler- way better than your brother ever was. You take a few steps at a time; like from the couch to the ottoman or from me to your daddy.

I finally caved and bought you store bought baby food and you love it. Seriously? Child, I can't believe that you would choose store-bought food over my homemade stuff- I hope this isn't a sign of things to come. Maybe you are putting on a little weight though! Hooray!
You are working on your 5th tooth and you take 2-3 naps a day and have yet to sleep through the night. Boo! Maybe before you turn 1, right? We are hopeful. You are sleeping in your own room still and love to play with your big brother. It really is the sweetest thing ever. You love to babble and have added "baby" to your vocab this month- maybe because you got so many for Christmas!
I think you are the sweetest thing ever. You have a huge smile and two darling dimples to boot.
Love you sweet girl.

Well, hello!

Ummmm...wow. It has been a long time since I was able to sit down and write a "real" blog post. We were rockn' in November with our "24 days of Thankfulness" (which we did finish by the way- they are on Chris' computer, we just haven't had time to upload them".
A few days after a wonderful Thanksgiving we headed to Branson with my parents. We took them as my dad's "Yay, we are finished with chemo" trip. We had a great time- all of us.

I wish I had pictures to share, but a few days ago while trying to steal Eli's food off the table, Callie (our first-born pup) took down our hard drive as she was jumping to the floor. I might have been yelling at her to get off the table. Boy, did she show me.
Everything was lost. Everything. Thank-the-Lord though, someone will be able to get them off. We are in the process of sending it far, far away. Not only did we lose everything of Ileigh's for the last 5 months, but also 4 families Christmas photos.

I was sick. I still don't like to think about it. I am very anxious to get those files back in my hands.

We have been a little stressed and frazzled around here.

To make me feel a little better about losing all of our daughters photos for the last couple of months, Chris took us all down to a little shop here in Amarillo and we took a few photos of the kiddos. :)

Gosh, he is just so big. And he has my heart...and he knows it. 

This is Eli showing me the "claw". 

Awww...:) Look at those bright eyes. She only smiles like that for daddy. 

Merry Christmas!
(I would post a photo of our Christmas card, but its image is also on the hard drive)  :(

Ileigh Grace- 10 months

We were in Branson celebrating my dad's last chemo treatment when Ileigh turned 10 months.
This little cutie was fantastic in the car on the way down and on the way back. I was really worried about the drive, but apparently Ileigh just wanted a chance to show off how sweet she can be!
(It also helps that the trip fell between those nasty teething pains.)

Here is our little pumpkin in her adorable Thanksgiving outfit. Those of you who spent Thanksgiving with us might wonder why you didn't see her in it- she was teething and felt like junk. In fact, if I remember correctly, she slept through both families Thanksgiving celebrations. Oh, well. At least we have a couple of pictures of her in this adorable outfit! :)

Ileigh, we are so proud of you! You took your first steps a day after your turned 10 months. You even showed Memamaw your new moves while we were on vacation.

You have all 4 front teeth and love to point and wave. 

Oh, goodness child. You are adorable! And, on a side note I cannot get over how much you look like your big brother. 

Love you sweet girl!
