7 months with Easton

“For you, there’ll be no more crying,
For you, the sun will be shining,
And I feel that when I’m with you,
It’s alright, I know it’s right
To you, I’ll give the world
to you, I’ll never be cold
‘Cause I feel that when I’m with you,
It’s alright, I know it’s right.
And the songbirds are singing,
Like they know the score,
And I love you, I love you, I love you,
Like never before.
And I wish you all the love in the world,
But most of all, I wish it from myself.
And the songbirds keep singing,
Like they know the score,
And I love you, I love you, I love you,
Like never before, like never before.”

-Fleetwood Mac



We love this sweet lady more and more, each and every day. Being parents has changed our world, our life perspective, priorities, everything…in all the best ways. Every morning, Donnie and I wake up beyond excited to snuggle this little blue eyed babe, after she eats of course, because Miss Thang wants to EAT when she gets up. No diaper change, no kisses, just straight to the food source please or I’ll cut you.

We have been blessed with a really good baby and amazing friends who have helped us navigate the daily roads we haven’t taken. This stage is full of heart explosions. Every day is better than the last. She is excited, responsive and looks at us with SO much love in her eyes. It’s visually evident that we are her WHOLE world and I’d be lying if that doesn’t make us feel pretty special. It’s incredible. I know the next day will be even more wonderful, but somehow I find myself shedding tears with each goodnight as I say goodbye to one more day of being able to rock her in my arms. She is getting heavier and bigger and aware that the world is pretty exciting. One day, she’ll be embarrassed by my efforts to make her laugh with “Shipoopi” and probably squirm when I try to squeeze her super tight. For now, I’m just trying to savor the way her eyes smile while she grunts out a laugh through her paci when I squeeze her and kiss her chubby cheeks.

We love you little E.

Her 7 month accomplishments:

“Dadada” (just this week)

Peek a boo

Squealing like crazy

Eating lots of solid food for lunch

Rolling over and rocking back and forth to try and move

Sitting up for long stretches of time

Sucking on everything

Has gone to childcare at church a few times

So excited to see both of us

Grunts and shoots legs out when being held on our hips and excited

Tries to give us her pacifier

My continued prayer for her is that she’ll know true joy, peace and find contentment in life. That she’ll smile and laugh easy, have a heart for others and be the first to jump up to help and bless those in need. Praying she’ll find a passion to use her gifts, have wisdom to surround herself with people that build her up and challenge her in a positive way and that she’ll be an encourager and inspire others to do what is right…that God’s protection will cover her physically, emotionally and spiritually.
