Another Milestone

Our baby girl's first tooth broke through today!!! Even though she is probably so uncomfortable, we are soooooo excited! Just two days ago, I could only feel a little lump in her lower gums, and now, there is a sharp edge of a tooth. Our little one is growing up!

Chloe's First Camping Trip

We went camping this past weekend with our friends Brad & Lauren.
We were trying to get it in before it gets too hot in May. Little did we expect tempuratures in the low 40's, rain storms, and a lot of wind!! We nearly drowned on Friday night. And Saturday, we were all so cold, we had to make a trip to Wal-Mart to get some warm clothes! But we still had tons of fun. Chloe did pretty well considering she hates cold temps and wind. I just layered her as much as I could.

We hiked near the lake, but didn't have the guts to get in! So we mainly hung out by the awesome camp fire that Matt built, trying to stay warm. Chloe seemed to enjoy the warmth, but she hated the smoke. For some reason, Matt was only one who didn't tear-up when the smoke blew in his face. Then, we realized it's because of his contacts! No wonder he kept saying over and over, "I love camp fires."

Thanks to Brad's & Lauren's patience with our little girl, her first camping trip was a success! We don't know how soon we'll venture out again but I hope it won't be too long. Maybe we'll even have the guts to take our dogs next time!! Ha, ha... yeah, right!

4 months and still growing strong

Our precious girl is 4 months old today!! I was thinking back to where I was exactly one year ago... I was going to see the OB/GYN in two days to follow up for a previous problem. That day, I found out I had another issue that would make it very difficult for me to carry a baby. The likelihood of a miscarriage was 80-90%. Two days after that, I found out I was pregnant! Little did I know WHO was growing inside of me, safe in our Father's care, being molded and shaped and formed into a beautiful little girl.

"For this child I prayed, and the Lord has granted my petition which I asked of Him. So I also have dedicated [her] to the Lord, as long as [she] lives, [she] is dedicated to the Lord." 1 Samuel 1:27,28

Chloe's First Easter

I had an adorable dress for Chloe to wear for Easter, but we had the weather we should have had at Christmas. It was soooo chilly!! So we opted for pants instead!
