"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 twenty-four

December 1-7

Baby brother is still comfy cozy in mama's belly.  He was 9lbs 13oz (at best estimate) at an ultrasound this week.  He has also surpassed his brother's late arrival, which was 4 days after due date.  So I think he is just already starting the competition and wants to weigh more than Declan too.  But let's hope I'm wrong!!!  (Declan was 10lbs 6oz!)

Sunday Snapshot:
It's December!!  We can wear our pretty Christmas colors!:)

We had Mimi snap a quick family picture, too! We barely fit on the bench though!

Mimi and Raelynn have been baking this week.  Banana bread, brownies, and cookie dough. (yes, just the dough:)

Mimi and the girls!
 Miss Elliana has been here with us FIVE months! She's rockin' her 'made in Ethiopia' shirt and love that we had a headband to match!

She is still doing well.  She is pulling herself up now!! Not super consistent, but she has done it a lot.
Problem is she doesn't like to stand too long and can't figure out how to get down. So she stands against the couch-or wherever she is-and whines.  She is still pretty whiney about a lot of things, actually.  We have to remember that emotionally she isn't at the 12 month stage--which is hard to remember because she is there with all of her other developments.
She is now eating SO well.  Sleeping through the night--almost 12 hours!!! :) 

watching Daddy mow the grass:)

We celebrated Christmas a little early since Mimi and Papa leave on the 13th to go home.
