"Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ, just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we would be holy and blameless before Him. In love He predestined us to adoption as sons through Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the kind intention of His will, to the praise of the glory of His grace, which He freely bestowed on us in the Beloved." Ephesians 1:3-6

Project 52: week seventeen

October 13-19

Sunday Snapshot:
I messaged this picture to my sister just after it was taken. Her response: "Do they match every Sunday?"  haha.....and my answer is yes, if I can:)  So not every Sunday...but as many as we can! :)

Daddy broke out in song here...."If you're happy and you know it"

Elliana had a GREAT week! We continue to feel like she is doing well and it seems she is attaching well.  I can't carry her around in the ergo much anymore because of my belly, but we go on a walk just about every night and she gets to be carried by Daddy.  We know that it is important for her to get that time.  She is crawling so well now and is starting to pull herself up.  Only in the bathtub and on the stairs, but she is still making great progress.
Ah, we just love her to pieces! She is such a sweetie.  We still have hard moments and we wonder if it's because of the transition or not.  Sometimes we will never know-but we do the best we can and lean on the Lord for his hand to guide us.
This was a HUGE naptime success!!!!!!!!
We have to swaddle her entire body or she will keep herself awake playing with her feet. We want to eventually stop swaddling her, so we are attempting to not swaddle her feet sometimes.  This was for a morning nap one day this week.

Oh this boy! He is getting quite a personality, too.  He is now starting to run--well, more like a faster paced waddle--but it's adorable whatever it is:)  He is also very interested in what his big sis is doing for school time, so he has started joining us at the table. 

And there is never a dull moment around here:



trying to climb up the wall!

melts my heart.

You would think we never feed him. 

Friday we went to the zoo with Jackson and Harper!

We have grass!!!  Friday night Daddy let them run around barefoot outside.  There are still a couple patches that seed is just sprouting, but overall the grass has come in perfect.  It even had the first mow on Friday.

 Meal times are never boring with Declan on my right and Elliana on my left.  Such little hams.  It looks like Elliana is crying, but she's actually laughing:)



  1. You have the perfect little spot for your Sunday pictures now, with that bench. I love them! And it's hard to match every week! haha!
    Declan's hand around Elliana by the window is just the cutest! Way to catch the moment. :)
    What song is Raelynn singing? could hear some words and phrases, but couldn't figure it out!

    1. Yes, I thought it would be fun to see how they outgrow me bench overtime:). She was singing 10,000 reasons. She loves singing it!
