Grace is 3 months old! What a wonderful blessing she has been to our family. I know I say it a lot, but the boys adore her. It thrills my heart to see my kids love on each other. The boys frequently say that they are best friends. They make up scenarios where they have to fight 'bad guys' and protect Gracie. It's too funny! I know the time is flying by so I'm enjoying this as long as I can, but I also look forward to when she can get up and run after them. She tries to follow them with her eyes when they come into a room and at 6 & 3 1/2 yrs. old they enter a room with quite the BOOM! I am so undeserving of God's gifts, but Danny & I try are best and just ask God for the wisdom it takes--daily, to raise these gifts.
I got an idea from a friend a long time ago to take a monthly picture of my babies their first year of life. She used a pillow/section of her couch. But we were going to be moving around a lot and didn't know about what kind of furniture we'd have. So we use a stuffed animal that Danny or I personally pick out for them. I love watching them grow and it helped our family see the growth next to something that didn't change.
Nathan has "Charlie" @ 1 month:
Fun isn't it?!? You know they grow... but when you're with them day in and day out, you don't see it happening till you look at a photo and think, "wow! she's really growing fast."
