Still Here

Well, bet you thought we were gone! "Not so fast my friend!" A great person once said that to me while visiting College Gameday in Austin one year.

A lot has changed since our last post. For one, our little girl is not so little anymore! She is passed her first birthday and extremely mobile!!

She is also going to be a big sister! In a few months we will welcome out next gift from God to our family and we are really excited!!

Here's are little one enjoying her ride in the wagon!

So stay tuned as we will attempt to update more consistently going forward. Later!

Birthday and Family Photos

This past weekend we took some family photos at a local park in our area. I also wanted to get some pictures taken of Olivia for her 1st birthday. Thanks to Pinterest I had in my mind exactly how I wanted her pictures to look. So for props I went and bought some cupcakes and balloons to include in the pictures. I was so excited and couldn't wait. The one thing I forgot is my daughter is a one-year old, what made me think she was going to stay still long enough. It was kind of a disaster but in the end I just had to laugh. We did however get one good birthday photo. This was before she kicked the plate of cupcakes over and a balloon popped in her face.

We're Still Here has been a long while since we posted. We have been a little busy to say the least with our almost 1-year old. I can't believe my little baby is almost a toddler. I have so much I need to post about. I have made a promise to myself to start updating on a regular basis. I don't want to forget all the precious memories we are making and this blog is the perfect way to document everything.

So here are some pictures to get started....

My first Mother's Day with Olivia.

Mother's Day was also baby dedications at church. It was such a special day. Mother's Day is now my favorite holiday by far. These are our friends Erin and Nate (he was born 2 weeks before Olivia), Layce and Whitten.

Olivia's 1st haircut was back in April. We didn't think she would sit still long enough but we were wrong she did GREAT! She loved sitting in the little pink car and watching cartoons on the tv.

Time Flies

Time flies! I say this because our little Olivia is now 9 months old! It seems like just yesterday we brought her home from the hospital and started this journey. We are truly blessed to be her parents and enjoy seeing her new accomplishments every day! We love you Livy!!

Change is inevitable. It's how you deal with change that says a lot about your character. The reason I type this is because of the every day changes happening around us.

For us, it's seeing our little girl discover new things about the world and about herself. It's amazing and heartwarming to see her face when she discovers that she has 5 fingers on her hand. Or when she realizes that those little struggles to get up and go, turn into crawling. Seeing our daughter grow up makes us appreciate every moment we spend together. It makes us realize that no matter what the world around us is doing, we can rely on God to provide little moments each day that bring everything into perspective.

Thank you God for showing us glimpses of your majesty through our daughter and through our every day lives. May we be humble enough to appreciate those moments each day!

Catching Up

So yeah, it's been a while since I posted something on here. Funny how being a parent leaves you little time for stuff you used to do. However, the stuff we are doing now is so much more fulfilling! So there's been a lot going on since I last typed something up.

Let's go with the ol' bullet point list.

-Started a new job in late November and everything is going great. Really enjoying the challenge and the people and I've learned a lot about the field I am in.

-Olivia is now over 6 months old and I can't believe it! She continues to grow and mature into an amazing little princess!

-We are going to start a Fast this weekend to allow us to re-focus our lives in our faith, marriage and family.

-Small group has grown over the year and we are excited about getting started this new year with a new study that we feel will have a big impact for our group.

Overall, life has been great, always has it's challenges but we are extremely grateful and blessed each and every day! We love our daughter more than we could have ever imagined! We can't wait to see what God has in store for us this year and we can't wait to share it!
