Catching UP

Hello everyone! Poor Deandra. She's grown up so much over the past seven months or so, and hasn't a blog post to show for it!

Here are some of her first big smiles. Once she figured it out, this grin became an almost permanent fixture on her face!
Found her toes!

Pretty six months smile!

Celebrating D's half birthday on October 4.

Cabbage Patch cheerleader for Halloween!

Playing in the leaves in the front yard.

Love the rollllls!!!!

Happiest baby EVER!

This brings us to present day. Deandra is so pleasant (though santa wasn't her favorite). She is practically crawling and enjoying real food very much! What a joy she has been. Sorry we haven't shared her with you more.

Heavier AND Lighter

Deandra's hair looked lighter today, and she is still packing on the pounds! For those of you who don't remember Enola getting chubby like Deandra is, yes she did:Enola - 6 weeks

We're ready for summer. Are you?

Four Weeks Old!

Deandra is doing well! As you can see, her cheeks are filling out nicely. She grunts and squeaks a lot, and likes to be held and walked around the house. Deandra is still slightly confused about day and night. She takes lovely, long, peaceful naps during the day, and seems to be either awake or grunting really loud at night. Hence, the cradle is now in the kitchen (where we can hear her when she really wakes up, but don't have to listen to her baby noises all night long)

Here are some other happenings in April:Enola enjoyed an Easter egg hunt at Bunk and Bap's house. Thankfully it stopped raining long enough to fill the basket!We got to spend lots of time with the cousins over the past couple of weekends. Here are Cole, Bode, Enola, and Deandra...the four GREAT grandkids!Enola keeps growing! She makes me laugh so many times a day. She has been singing along with the radio, "sneaking up" on me (she hunches her shoulders and bends her knees and walks up to people with this goofy smirk on her face), she's been "sharing" with Deandra (laying bows, books, socks, etc. on her belly) and giving lots and lots of kisses to her baby sister. Here she is watering the weeds in the driveway and tring on Daddy's church shoes. Thanks to those of you who came to visit and for all your well-wishes and prayers. We are slightly sleep deprived, but doing GREAT! a few hours of sleep is a small price to pay for so much love and joy in our house!

We are so excited that shel and Eliza are home to visit for a while! Nana got the girls some snazzy Pudue outfits and we went to the Student Union for a photo shoot. As Shel said, "Pigtails AND bows AND hand holding AND smiling is asking a lot!" But the girls did great and made our day! READY? OK!

Also check out Emily's blog today for some cute pics!
