8 months already?

I seriously can't believe B is already 8 months old. This last month just flew by. With getting sick, moving, and trying to enjoy our last days in Utah, life was pretty busy. Brooklyn is such a happy and beautiful baby. She has done so well this last week after being in the car for three days and being dragged everywhere. She continue to impress me everyday. She's so smart and flexible. She is so happy and patient. I learn so much from her everyday. I learn more and more everyday why Christ teaches us to become like a child. I hope I teach her a thing or two during this process...ha 

Here's what she's been up to:

- Perfecting her army crawl. She's so much faster. 
- Became a momma's girl. Ever since she had the flu she has been wanting to be held and paid attention to by me. I find it to be so sweet. 
- Loves eating her solid foods. Her appetite has increased quite a bit.
- She can get her belly up off the ground. 
- Talking tons and tons. She just babbles all day long, especially when trying new foods. Se makes the cutest noises and they are starting to sound more like words.
- She got her 3rd tooth on 8/27 and her 4th is on its way to breaking through any day now.
- Traveled to Az, Tx, Nm, and Co. She is becoming quite the traveler.
- Went on her 1st road trip and moved away from where she was born.  She's a Texan now!
- Tried avocado, watermelon, pineapple, cantaloupe, puffs, yogurt bites, and Ice Cream. Obviously the ice cream was BlueBell. Wouldn't start her on anything but the best.
- Uses her feet like a second pair of hands. It's pretty funny. She's such a silly girl. 
- Says momma with meaning. This really just came about yesterday that I noticed. She was so tired and just wanted her mom. She started crawling towards me while saying momma. It melted me heart. She used it all throughout the day when she wanted me. Best. Day. Ever.

Isn't she cute?

Reading in the park with her daddy
Playing in the boxes while we pack

Wise Men Still Seek Him Free Printable

UPDATE:  Hello Everyone! I have noticed that this post has been receiving a lot of traffic via pinterest and The Dating Divas Website. I wanted to welcome you all.

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…
