Lo's first soccer game!

We decided to sign Lo up for soccer this year.  She was so cute at her first couple of practices.  She seemed to have a lot of fun out there with the other kids. 




Then came her first game....she was so funny!  She is a pokey little runner and just takes her time taking in all her surroundings.  She runs with her arms moving and her tongue out.  I can only imagine her singing "hi-ho,hi-ho..."  When we would cheer her on she would stop running and just look at us with her silly little grin.  She may have touched the ball 3 or 4 times total.  She's pretty timid, like her mama, but I think she had fun!!  It sure was fun to watch!


She had her soccer pictures done a few weeks after her first game and I can't wait to get them back!  She was so cooperative for them! 



Her little team is so cute and they are impressively all so good!  She also has a wonderful coach, who is so sweet and patient with all the girls.  


She was so excited when her Aunt Shannon and Cousin Lexi came to watch her play.  Her Nana has been to every game so far too! 


She may be the pokey and timid one of the bunch, but we sure to enjoy seeing her out there with the other girls!

Nora Sue - 8 Months

Sweet Nora Sue,




You are 8 months old!  You are such a chunky monkey and cute as can be.  You have the biggest cheeks, sweetest face, and are so cuddly.  You are so happy and will smile at anyone that talks to you.  You love to sleep and take 2-3 good naps and sleep all night. You still love your binkie and your blankie. You have started being able to find your binkie and put it back in your mouth when it falls out. 


You love to eat and will eat anything I put in front of you. 

You are sitting up well now and will sit and play with your toys for quite some time.  I love watching you do this. 



You have definitely found your voice and will "talk" to us a lot now.  We get a kick out of your little screams.




Your siblings just adore you and never pass up an opportunity to love on you.




You love your daddy but definitely prefer to be held by your mama. 


You are the best baby.  You just go with the flow, hang out in the ergo when we are out and about, take naps in the ergo, car, pack n play, wherever. 



We love you sweet girl!

Easter 2016

Since Nora was only 3 weeks old on Easter, we chose to just hang out at home.

Lo & Drew got to go to an Easter egg hunt in our neighborhood the weekend before.  There were not very many eggs at all, but they had a great time. 



Andrew took Lo to her Granny's for an Easter egg hunt as well.  She loved it!  Drew, Nora, and I just chilled at home while they were gone.



The day before Easter, thanks to Nana, who so graciously filled eggs and hid them, we had a little easter egg hunt at our house.  Lo and Drew had the best time with their cousins finding eggs and eating all the chocolate. Andrew made a delicious dinner and the kids played.







On Easter Sunday, we hung out as a family.  We also most certainly dressed up and took the "Easter pics."  The girls had matching dresses from our favorite store...Target, haha, and looked super cute!  Andrew and Drew had matching tie/bowties and looked so handsome.  I love those boys of mine!  I was so happy Andrew obliged to my silliness of wanting to dress up, despite being able to get out and go to church, and take pictures to remember the day, the day Jesus died for us.  I am forever greatful for this amazingly blessed life I have been giving.  This Easter I am especially grateful for the most surprisingly blessing I could have ever received...sweet Nora Sue.
