so much to be thankful for...

Well, Thanksgiving has past already and we hope you had a wonderful weekend. We had a very busy and not so relaxing weekend but we are still very thankful!

I'm so thankful for my wonderful little family! I know that is the common thing to say, but its so true! Nevaeh has given us such a joy that can not be described! She has taught me and she's only 9 months old! She is always to happy even when she's completely exhausted.. she just always, always has a smile on! She has started to snuggle a little more, and guess what? She's taking four or five steps now!! Can you believe it! I didn't think it would be before Thanksgiving, but it was!

I'm also so thankful for my ever patient husband. I don't know how he got so patient, but he is always calm when I can be freaking out! He is such a wonderful husband and dad, and I love to watch him with Nevaeh.

God has blessed me so much! Thank you my Father in Heaven! I praise you and follow you until the ends of the earth. Thank you!

Playing with her buddy, Nathan. She loves to have another to play with everyday!

she is starting to climb into everything! She can spend so much time climbing in and out of her tub of toys. She also likes to take things out and put things back in over and over!
This is our Thanksgiving day family picture

I loved this family picture!!! She looks like a purple puffy marshmellow!

Clapping, standing & walking!


How are you all? We are doing great over here! I couldn't wait for another week to update and tell you all about the wonderful things happening with our family!

Nevaeh is probably 20 lbs now, and as energetic as ever. She has started clapping and loves doing it! We are still trying to learn "more" (in sign language) on a consistent bases, but she gets it when she really wants something she likes. 

She is also standing on her own, and walking with help of a pushing toy. I think she will be walking on her own before Christmas... ahhhh. Its amazing to think about how fast her little mind and body is going and growing! 

We have found she loves other kids and is so friendly with them. She cries when we have to leave after meeting a new friend!

On another front, the sale of our house is still going. We have an open house in 2 days and I'm getting a little more anxious the closer it gets. We have praying for this open house, that someone will like it and a sale will happen. We also have been looking into houses and we are finding some really good deals. 

Also, an advertisement, if we don't sell our house in May we will probably need new renters, so if you know of anyone, please let me know!

Big girl!

She loves to snuggle when eating!
Look at her go!

Sophisticated baby talk..

This is going to be a short, but very, very sweet post....... drum roll please......pdddd

She signed her first word!! We have been working on "more" for the last 3 months and she finally did it! Along with clapping (which she does all the time!), she signed a word!  I gave her a bite of my mushy Honey Nut Cheereos and what did she want? More, of course! :)

Along with that wonderful news, she was 9 months old yesterday. Time is flying by and before any of us knows it, I will posting about her first birthday. "Ahhhh"- that was a Home Alone moment!
