Then our mouth was filled with laughter, And our tongue with singing. Then they said among the nations, "The LORD has done great things for them." -Psalm 126:2*

*I think we all wondered through those first days of SCREAMING if we'd ever get here. Thank you Lord, we're here now. YOU have done great things for us.

This week's doings...

Helped Audrey celebrate her 1st Birthday, especially enjoyed when she shared her tissue paper pile...BIG smiles with our big cheeks (and yes for those of you that have asked, Anna wants you to know her mama has already invested in her 1st cosmetic surgery, Cheek Implants!)...
Taken lots of sunshiney walks...

Played in a diaper box and scrunched up our faces like little bunnies lots...


Lots of baths and lots of splashes...

What face does the bunny make Anna...

A big week!

Oh yes indeed it was...
Anna had her 1st babysitting venture outside of grammy & gramps time with Auntie Em and Audrey Kate. Along with this came her first friendship drama. She is really into pulling Audrey's hair and Audrey's not so much into it. So one had a melt-down and the other quickly followed. Melissa and I were wishing we had caught it on tape, as we laughed and they melted over each other's pain. It was a movie picture in the making for sure.
Anna had her 1st week in the church nursery and had a blast, even had a wrestling match (or got wrestled down) with another little princess as I arrived at the end. So hillarious to see her developing her social and play skills!
I chopped off the strangly strung out hippie do, 8.5" total off. I feel so light and free. A much needed new mama do.
We signed the docs, we're official landowners of our new property for our next homebuilding project, wahoo!
And best of all, Anna started saying "mom-mm", not mama, but mom-mm. She says it for me and food. Does that make us equal? Does it get any better than that, mamas out there?!

And a few shots from the week...
Anna's feelings when Duke was out of the March Madness tourney. A girl after her daddy's heart.
Anna trying on her own John Deere boots from Will's Uncle Mack. They're like 10 sizes too big, but since we can't fit our cankles in boots our size, we thought we'd see if too-big-ones fit. Nope. Cankles still too big.
Anna and her first technology experience with daddy. An i-pody afternoon on the swing. Beautiful moments indeed.

Anna and daddy going to their first baseball game together! He said that everytime the crowd cheered she looked around, wondering what she did that they were all so excited about. We must sound like a crowd cheering for her at home, so she's used to it I guess.
She is one loved girl.
