1st beach trip

Lillie loves water and so we took a spontaneous little drive to Galveston yesterday. It was raining on and off so we couldn't do much, but the little bit that she experienced, she loved! I can't wait to play with you more there little Lilster! And to share my first plate of hummus with you (we ate at Olympia Grill.) I hope you love ethnic food as much as your momma does...esp. sushi! :) You were a joy to watch in God's creation but yesterday sure did tire you out.
I promise not every post now will be about Lillie! But since I am not on any social network (kinda loathe them), you will see lots of pictures on here! :)

Lillie Joy

Well, as my last post stated, it has been awhile and would take too much time to go back, so I am just gonna keep moving forward! What life calls for sometimes anyways though, right? So here is an update on my bundle of pure JOY! Lillie is 4 months old now and is beginning to develop her own little personality! She seems to resemble herself alone right now. She weighs 13lbs and still wears 0-3 months clothes so perhaps she will take after my size...ha! Lillie takes great naps and sleeps through the night (averages about 12 hours a blessed!) She looks great in pink and has the prettiest, largest and most alert blue eyes that I have ever seen!
She loves...being sung and read too; watching mickey mouse clubhouse and doing the hotdog dance with mommy; looking at pictures of herself on my phone; being outside; sitting up; her crib (will only sleep there); sitting in her sling on me and me walking everywhere; her bouncer; her daddy; full attention from people; playing with her toys; minnie mouse; sucking her thumb; making raspberries; and esp. bath time and her massages with lotion after! :) She is also hillarious and makes the funniest faces!
I have a feeling this little munchkin will be totally unlike her mommy and very divalicious! I can't wait to see all that she will be like! But for now, I am completely in love with this gift from God! She is such a blessing and a joy...named appropriately! Lillie, I pray that you live as your name, which means, purity, beauty, innocence, jewel, rejoicing and delight! And I hope you sense Zephaniah 3:17 all around you! My little girl/my monkey...You are so loved! :)

Catching Up...

I have thought about posting a dozen times but then something in life always creeps up and steals my time! :) In brief...since I last wrote, I got married to Steven Buchanan on March 19, 2011; honeymooned in Anguilla with my new husband; moved into our first house; got pregnant; had a baby girl named, Lillie Joy Buchanan, on March 20, 2012; watched my husband become a firefighter; and through it all have continued working for YL. Here is it all chronicled briefly through pictures. I am going to start blogging again now! :) If the pictures are not in order, I am sorry. Blogger confuses me! :)
