Eight Months Old

It is so hard to believe Ann Marie is closer to a year old than the little bitty baby we brought home from the hospital last October! She is a true joy!! She laughs and giggles all day and she loves being around people, especially kids!She has the cutest expressions! She will start crawling to something she knows she should not be into and she will turn around and just grin at you! She is pulling up on the couch, the windows,the ottoman,me, Dino, etc.....!! She loves her walker! She is a happy baby in the morning! It is always fun to see her crazy little bedhead in the morning time! Her hair is growing and it is laying down quite nicely now! She likes baby food! Her favorites are English peas, squash, and carrots! We had a rough start with carrots, but now she is a fan! We can't imagine life without Ann Marie and we love her so much! We just wish all the best things in life for her! We want her to have a close relationship with God, her family,and her friends as she continues to grow! Her outfit is one that Nana and Aunt Lori gave her at my baby shower! It fits just in time for all this hot weather!!

Beach Trip 2009

Nana,Poppee,Dino, Ann Marie and I all journeyed down to the beach last week for a little fun in the sun!! Ann Marie loved the water!! We had a really great time! We went down the beach Saturday and spent the day with Jason,Karen,Georgie and Dakota Pieroni and Jeff,Monica and John Maddox Hillman! Ann Marie loved being around all the kids! We made lots of good memories and had a trip to remember!

It is hard to catch her being still these days!

We wrote her initials in the sand..... It is a little hard to see!

God is Good!

Today My Mom and I went to Little Rock for her annual breast cancer checkup and everything checked out great!I always get nervous around this time and she does too. My Mom was diagnosed with breast cancer 19 years ago and went through chemotherapy, radiation and a bone marrow transplant. She did not have to do the bone marrow transplant because back then it was only an experimental trial but she was told it would help others to have a new way to fight cancer so she signed up for it and it was successful!She was in the first group of patients at UAMS to receive one! I thank God everyday that my Mom is here and healthy! She is an inspiration to me and I love her so much!We prayed today to celebrate 20 years being cancer free next June!
