Four Months

So, I'm a little behind! We've been busy though. We spent Nancy Carolyn's four month birthday at St. Simons. We were cheering Chris on through the Turtle Crawl Triathlon. Nancy Carolyn is getting so big. Her stats were 12 lb 7 oz, 23 7/8" and I can't remember what her head measured, but she was all in the 25-50%. The doctor was pleased with her growth and said she was perfect (of course WE already knew that!). Her personality is starting to show and she is quite the funny girl. She's happy most all of the time and I just love every second with her. Nancy Carolyn can hold her head up really well and sits nicely in the Bumbo seat. She can also sit with the help of the boppy. Her hobbies include rolling over (both ways), reaching for and putting toys in her mouth (as well as her fists). She also enjoys "standing and dancing." Nancy Carolyn's most favorite thing is bathtime. She enjoys splashing Mommy and playing with her rubber duckie. Did I mention how much I love this girl? :)

A New Endeavor

This weekend, I took a step towards a new endeavor. I had been thinking and praying a lot about it and thought it sounded like a lot of fun. Then about a week ago, I was reading about it and got totally pumped about it. What is it I'm talking about?

I am now a consultant for Thirty One. YAY!!! If you're not familiar with the company, they sell really cute bags and various other things. The thing that REALLY sold me on the company is the fact that it is a Christian based company that promotes and encourages women. In fact, Thirty One comes from Proverbs 31 which is one of my favorite passages in the Bible. It describes the virtuous woman.

I am SO excited about this step I have taken. I'm not looking to become one of those women that makes a career out of selling Thirty One. I'm just going to enjoy the fun products and hopefully make a little extra pocket change. Feel free to browse my website listed below. Let me know if you are interested in ordering something... or better yet, if you're interested in hosting a party!

Happy Mother's Day!

One year ago today, I woke up very early to take a pregnancy test. I could hardly wait the few minutes to see the word PREGNANT appear. We found out about Sprout one year ago today. We were so excited to meet her. We were already in love with her. Now a year later, we have the most beautiful almost four month old in the world. She lights up the room with her smile and makes me chuckle with her voice. Nancy Carolyn is our pride and joy! One year ago today, I loved the baby I was carrying but had NO IDEA of the love I would have for her now.

It's been a wonderful Mother's day despite Chris and Nancy Carolyn feeling rather poorly. They treated me to tulips and chocolate covered strawberries. Becoming a mother was the best thing I ever did! I love you Nancy Carolyn and I Love you Chris for being my partner in life!
