since he's been gone.

james has been gone for the last two weeks. it sucked. i cannot wait to have him back. i have a new found respect for single parents.

eliza has changed a lot in these two weeks. i can't wait to see him with her.

he already exclaimed "she's fat!" when i sent him a picture.

she moved out of newborn diapers and some newborn clothes.

but this is the biggest and best change...she smiles!

there are a couple other videos i posted on facebook, or you can find them on youtube.

her father's daughter.

aunt nancy had some of james' baby pictures and i couldn't wait to see them again to compare with mine and eliza's. i picked them up on our surprise trip to indiana (more on that later...hopefully) and i couldn't believe what i saw.

ma claimed from the beginning that she felt like she was holding her baby again. a lot of other people have told me they think she looks like me.

seeing his picture, i'm not so sure. i feel like i'm looking at her.

what do you think?

ma also said that she sees more of james in her now. i just looked at her newborn pictures and she has changed a lot, so maybe that's it.


me...a chunk at 8lbs 7oz.

james...itty bitty. he came really early.

one thing is for sure...she was bound to have lots of dark hair!

eliza is one month old today!

things she likes...
sleeping. a lot.
being held.
the moby.
the bouncy seat.
stretching out on the floor.
being swaddled, but only in flannel blankets.
looking at pictures in books.
naps with dad when he comes home from work.
bath time with mama.
getting her hair brushed.

she has had quite the busy month! meeting tons of family, and her future best friend enola, church every sunday but the first, getting baptized, apple orchard, motorcycle shop, a few shopping trips, doctor visits, small group bible study, a trip to the train station...

big day.

eliza had a big day yesterday. she became a baptized child of God!

it was beautiful. she wore a gown made by her great aunt steph, and a bonnet topped her head that great aunt susie gave her. one day she can cut the strings on it and it will turn into a hankie for her wedding day. just like me.

21 family members came down from indiana to help welcome her to God's family. it was a great weekend! we cannot thank everyone enough for all the help and love they gave. we are so blessed! very excited to watch her grow in Him.

here is the start to that life...
