Margo's Dedication

We had Margo dedicated at our church this past Sunday. She wore one of my dresses from when I was a baby. We felt very blessed to have our family and church support us in raising Margo to love Jesus!

New Play Thing

Margo has yet another thing to play with! My parents put a swing up in their yard for her and we tried it out on Monday afternoon. Here's her response...

5 Month Milestones

Okay, so I am almost two weeks late in posting Margo's milestones but here they are...

- she weighs in at 16 lbs. 11 oz. (I'm not sure about her length)
- she loves grabbing her feet and enjoys sucking on her toes
- she is so proud when she pulls herself up to a sitting position as I hold her fingers

- she has found her voice and enjoys screeching and squealing
- she laughs when we scare her and LOVES to laugh at Carolina - or any dog for that matter

- she does crunches when we lay her down - keeping her head and legs raised up when we lay her flat
- she sucks her thumb but keeps her fingers extended so she pokes herself in the eye

Margo's First Pony Ride!

I went to a community yard sale today and found the cutest rocking horse for Margo! For now she is content to sit while we gently rock it, but I can just guess what she'll say all too soon... "Mommy, look how fast I can go!"

Spring is in the air

I love springtime and the new life that occurs with foliage during this season. I find it a reminder of our new birth in Christ through His death and resurrection - a very appropriate thing to ponder this Good Friday (Isaiah 53).

Margo's Toys

Margo enjoys sitting up and having me put a bunch of her toys all around her but her favorite thing to play with...

Cousins and the Zoo!

We had a great, albeit cold, day at the zoo yesterday with Grandma, Aunt Jenni, and cousins Preston and Adrien! Here are some pictures of our time together...

Laughter for the world

Margo has just begun laughing and it is so rewarding to see her laugh at silly things. She loves this little lion that you can pull to make vibrate but at the end gets distracted by Carolina and Holly playing in the background. My Grammy says, "Laugh, and the world laughs with you. Weep, and you weep alone." So, here you go world...
