Rael is 7 Months...

Our Rael is 7 months!

I feel like this last month she has grown up so fast and she is accomplishing so much. She now can crawl anywhere and everywhere. She enjoys getting on all fours, flying through the air, and then landing right on her belly. She now has the nickname "little seal".

Rael can pick up her own food all by herself and gets really excited if you place little puffs on her tray or even pieces of cooked egg yolk. It's so cute to watch her chew the little pieces with her tiny teeth.

She has her two bottom teeth and now is getting her top four.  They look like they are going to pop any day now! Her adorable little smile makes anyone and everyone smile right back.

She is now making some sweet sounds like "dada" which makes Jason so proud, even though we aren't quite sure yet if she is meaning Jason, or if she is just practicing.

Rael is now our best sleeper and sleeps from 7pm to 7am and we are loving it.

She still is my little petite baby, weighing in at 13.6 pounds, which makes her 7% in weight and 26 inches in height. I love it when her little body melts into my arms when she is tired, and when she looks at me with her big blue eyes the world just seems to fade away. 

We love our little Rael and can't wait to see what her 7th month will bring. I'm sure more joy, happiness, and love.

Happiest Place on Earth

We had an amazing unforgettable trip to the Happiest Place on Earth – Disneyland!!!

Jason’s parents blessed the whole family with a 2 day extravaganza trip to Disneyland and California Adventure where all the cousins got to spend some incredible time together. We had the most wonderful time going on countless rides, watching the parade, walking around the parks, enjoying all the Christmas decorations, and just really having a ball with all of the family. All 14 of us snuggled up in a 2 bedroom hotel room where the kids slept peacefully and soundly after the day's activities. Each morning they woke up eager to start the day looking forward to the new things that were waiting for them just around the corner. Disneyland truly is a magical place, especially when viewed through the eyes of a young child.
Mom and Dad, thank you so much for your love and generosity. We are so blessed by you and thank the Lord every day that He blessed us with such wonderful parents. Thank you for going on rides with your grandchildren, for giving them treats, and most especially for loving them. You truly are amazing!

We sure had a GRAND time!!
