On the Go

This past week was a very exciting week for our little family.  Last Tuesday, March 27th to be exact, Harper girl completely sat up on her own.  The very next day she started crawling.  Today, a week later,  she is a crawling machine.  When she crawls she talks and I promise you it sounds like she is saying, "go, go, go!"  It's hilarious.  This past week, we also started introducing Harper and Henry to friends and family.  Now, we are taking baby steps getting them out, but we are, in fact, getting out.  We still have lots of people to meet, but we are taking small steps.  We were strongly encouraged to not place them in daycare or nurseries just yet, so we will wait until maybe next year before we do that.  You also won't see us in Walmart any time soon, but if you happen to be driving in our neighborhood or my parent's neighborhood, you just might see us! :)  Mark and I are having so much fun planning things to do with the babies this summer.  Lots of visits to the church playground, the pool, the zoo, and even the beach.  

There's not a day that goes by that I don't thank God for his blessings.  Blessings that I certainly don't deserve, but  am so grateful for.  I am a worrier by nature, so suddenly being able to get out with the babies, after an almost year of isolation, has been very hard for me.  I am praying constantly for God to calm my fears and just let this be a summer of fun for our little family.  Below are some pictures from last week.  I have a few more pictures of some visits from friends and a little video of Harper crawling.  I'll try and post those tomorrow.

Visiting Grandmommy's house for the first time.  As you can see, our furry child now lives there.  That's a story for another blog post, but I was shocked at how much Harper LOVED Grover.  I can't say the feeling was mutual. 

Sweet little monkeys

BJ, it is so sweet seeing them getting to meet family and friends now. And their little smocked bunny outfits might be the cutest thing EVER! :)

LOVE IT! As always! Now, I must know what is the deal with Grover living with your parents. He looks SO much like Farley!
