Baby B at 6 months

So my sweet girl is 6 months old. I feel like from the moment she was born I was waiting for her to be this old. I knew we would have so much fun together as she can do more and interact more than she could when she was just a wee little one. She's grown and changed so much this past month. She amazes me everyday.

  • She is always on the move. Examples: She rolled of the bed when I was brushing my hair and what I like to call...the swing incident. Our dear friends Jackie and Par have let us borrow their swing. It has saved our life on many occasions. Anyway, I put her in there for a nap one afternoon and start to hear her wakeup. Usually I let her wake up a little before I go and get her. So I start to listen to her get a little more fussy so I go back there to check out what she's up to. She is on her stomach, her head is facing down where her butt should be, and her waist and legs are dangling off the swing and it goes back and forth. I should've snapped a picture but I moved fast because I didn't want her to fall. That's my crazy girl. She was pretty happy about it too. 
  • Loves water bottles. She is constantly grabbing mine out of my mouth and shoving it in hers. She also loves to bite it. It's too cute. She loves drinking water out of my water bottle. She's great at sucking on straws
  • Loves tags
  • Has become a little inch worm using her knees to push herself forward towards her toys
  • She loves to fling her body from her back to stomach in order to reach whatever she wants
  • Went on her first boating trip and did pretty well
  • Says mama. Now I know she's too young to associate it with me but I still think it's cute. The first time I heard it (6/17) I think my heart skipped a beat.
  • She's rolled a few times from her back to back or stomach to stomach
  • Got her first tooth (6/26)! She now has two as of a couple of nights ago.
  • She has tried some different solid foods: rice cereal, sweet potatoes, carrots, green beans, and some whip cream. As I am sure you could guess...Derek gave her the whip cream. ha 
  • Can sit up pretty well. If she gets to excited and lunges for something she tops over but other than that she's going great.
Basically she is my moving machine and my happy girl. Her second tooth brought her some misery because she just had shots the day before and then an upset stomach that night. Other than that she's learning and growing like a champion. I love that I have the opportunity to stay home with her every day and play with her. 

I mean those eyes, I could die! I love them.
Her maiden voyage!

Such a big girl

So the past couple of days I have really been thinking about how I can reflect the true meaning of Christmas in my home. We live in a small two bedroom apartment and there isn't much room to decorate. This morning I was watching the video Wise Men Still Seek Himand felt inspired to create a printable for my home. It's a good reminder to not only seek Him this time of year but throughou…

Hazel's Birth Story

Warning: This is long and is written in detail as it's meant to be my record of her birth. 
Well it's been a long time since I've blogged. Life gets busy and it's hard to keep up. However, I found myself wanting to record the details of Hazel's birth story. She's already 4.5 months old and I am finding that I am starting to forget small things. I want to write them all down before I forget. So here I am, sharing our story, so that I can remember and share it with her someday.

Hazel Anne Power joined our family on September 3, 2017 at 8:40 pm weighing 7 lbs 5 oz and 19.5 inches long. She is my smallest baby. She's 6 oz less than Brooklyn and 1 inch shorter. She is just darling and we are so glad she's a part of our family. 
So I guess I'll start at the beginning. I found out I was pregnant right after Christmas time and was able to share the news with my family that was in town for the holidays. We return home from our trip and I start back up playin…

Big News!

So this is big news for the Power family. I know many of you know a million other people who are currently pregnant but before you roll your eyes and skip over this post completely (ha), read on and hear a little bit about our story.
I am currently 20 weeks pregnant. We just found out yesterday that we are expecting a baby girl. She is due to enter this world on January 3, 2012. So far she is healthy and growing strong. She is growing about a week ahead of schedule. Maybe she'll come before the end of the year. Derek and I will celebrate our 3rd anniversary on the 16th of not too long after our sweet girl is born.
A little about us:
Derek: One of the things I love most about Derek is how patiently he accepts trials in his life. He always has such a good atitude about what life has handed him. When he was 11 or 12 he was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes. Then at age 19 he was diagnosed with Lymphoma Cancer.  He has now been in remission for 5 years. We are tr…
