Becca - Four Months

*again, this post is late! So sorry! I'll get better about this! I will!*

On December 8th, Becca was officially four months old. Was it really four months ago that she entered this world?
It was right around this time last year that we found out we were expecting. Sunday, December 6, to be exact. It was around 7am when the test was positive. It seemed like an eternity we had been waiting for that positive test! And finally, there it was, as definite as it could be. I was so overjoyed I cried. Mitchell was ecstatic. We had both prayed for this child, and the Lord heard our request. We were so excited, we couldn't keep it to ourselves. We were going to wait a week before telling our families, but just couldn't keep it in. So we decided to tell one person from each of our families. I told Brittany, and Mitchell called and told William. They were the first besides us to know! Then we thought, how can we expect them to keep it from the rest of the family? So we ended up telling them all that Sunday morning. What joyous news! We waited a week, though, to tell (basically) everyone else... Church friends, other friends.

And thus began our journey, that we are now full fledged into. Becca is a joy and treasure. She lights up every moment with her smile and giggles. Still growing, she weighed 14 lbs. 14 oz. at her last doctors appointment. She's started on rice cereal, and loves it! She tries to grab the spoon and feed herself! She rolls over constantly, "talks" our ears off with her cute sounds, and is getting closer to crawling every day.
We've had quite the eventful last weeks, as we lost Mitchell's great-grandmother, great-uncle, and two family friends. Then just recently, Mitchell's dad suffered a mild heart attack. Praise the Lord that he is well and recovering. We are so thankful for God's provision and care.

Becca's First Thanksgiving!

*sorry this is so late! We are already days from Christmas, and I'm just now getting this published! I guess it goes to show how fast this holiday season is whizzing by!*

We had a great holiday weekend, and celebrating Becca's first Thanksgiving! She was so cute in her shirt that said, "everyone is thankful for me!" How true that is!! We had a lovely thanksgiving dinner at my grandparents on Dad's side. It was nice to see them and my aunts and cousins, who we don't get to see very often. And Becca got lots of snuggles and kisses!
