It seems that alot of the posts recently have focused on Isaac. So I thought I would somewhat remedy that.(Although I have another one for Tot School to post) Miriam is such a little sweetheart! She is such a happy little girl, and she loves to cuddle!!! I love it! I tried to give her a nickname right before she was born, I was going to call her Ladybug, but somehow it just didn't quite work. I guess it is better to let nicknames happen naturally :) So, but as time has gone on, she has become my little Snugglebug. I was holding her one evening after her last feeding and she was so content to just be held. The name just came to me, and she's been my Snugglebug ever since. She is 7 months old now, 2 bottom front teeth, eating solid foods, now on a breakfast, lunch, dinner routine and down to 2 naps a day! She has adjusted so well to that, I know she was ready for it. She started sleeping through the night at 6 weeks, but started waking up again around 4 mths. This past week since we have been consistent with the new schedule, she has started sleeping again through the night!! Thank you Jesus!!! This makes for one happy mommy!! She has been sitting up on her own now for the last couple of weeks and doing great!! She loves to play with toys and rattles. She now has her own little basket of toys to play with, filled with lots of pink! I even bought a few new ones for her recently!! Isaac never cared much for toys at this age, so he just had a few that people had given us. So it's fun to see Miriam playing with toys. This past week we had her checkup, and the doctor said she is healthy and a little bit ahead of the game developmentally wise. She is so close to crawling! She gets up on her hands and knees and rocks back and forth....any day now! She absolutely loves her bouncer. I put her in itfor alittle bit after breakfast while I am getting Isaac dressed and ready for the day. She now thinks that every time you hold her up to stand that she needs to bounce. She is too cute!
As time goes on, important days to honor my family seems to become more important to me. Through the craziness of life, it is easy to forget how special they are to us and we neglect to let them know how much we love them. That is what makes certain holidays so great. They are not just another day of the year, but a time for us to slow up a bit and reflect on our life and the blessings we've been given. More and more I love giving gifts. I love to think things through and really give to someone something that is thoughtful and something they will truly enjoy. This past week, I knew that Valentine's Day was coming up. I had no idea what to get my hubby, until I went into our local grocery store and saw one of the coolest bouquets I have ever seen! It was a candy bar bouquet!!! It is absolutely perfect for Aaron, but he always has a "secret stash" of candy that he munches on while he is studying. He has such a sweet tooth! I think I had as much fun giving it to him as he had receiving it! I am thankful for my wonderful husband and so grateful that the Lord has granted us 6 great years together and anticipating many more!
of 8 months. First words: Bye bye and da da. Walking at 14 months. I have loved every minute of his life. He is such a precious beautiful child. I am so thankful to God that he gave us "laughter". And it was through his birth that God chose for my cancer to be revealed and God brought life to me. This amazing little boy is always smiling, always happy, absolutely loves music, life, and people, books, hats, and pizza. These have been the best two years of my life.
