Junebug is {walking}

 Two Friday's ago {September 19th) our Junebug woke up completely determined to walk on her own. She had made up her mind that even when she fell she was just going to get right up and get back to it. All day long she did this. By Saturday morning she was mostly walking with very little falling and crawling. We were all so proud of her. The big kids kept cheering her on and holding her hand when needed.

This is the face of determination!

Our Home {tour}

This past year the Lord has been preparing my heart for something big and something new. All year I have been nervous and excited in anticipation of what that would mean for our family and this last week we found out. Matt got offered his first head coaching position and we couldn't be more excited about it. I am so thankful the Lord was so gracious to prepare this heart of mine to be at peace about the whole situation. We don't really have any of the housing details worked out other than our current home going on the market in the next few days. I sure am going to miss our first home and all the memories that we have made here. It will always be a special place to me. Here are a few before and after photos of our first fixer upper.

Hopefully I can add the other rooms later.

Junebug {10 months}

Oh my sweet are well into the tenth months and I really and truly cannot believe it. This has been the fastest year of my life. I still view you as this little infant that needs to be carried around all day long but you are quickly changing and needing me less and less. I'm so thankful you are a cuddle bug and prefer to be in my arms all day because that fools me into believing that this is the way it will always be.

Some things about your tenth month of life:

* You are crawling everywhere and started back at the beginning of nine months.
* You are pulling up on everything and even taking a few steps while holding onto the ottoman.
* You still have just your bottom two teeth.
* In the last two weeks you have made great strides with eating solids. You got so excited about oranges, applesauce, yogurt, peas and puffs this week. You still seem to dislike the texture of banana and avocado.
* You are in a size 4 diaper
* You weigh about 15 lbs
* Not a great sleeper but I have hope that it won't be long before you are taking good naps and sleeping through the night.
* You are eating every.single.thing. off the floor. If it's on the floor it's going in your mouth. I feel like a crazy neat freak person but I can't keep our floor clean enough for you, you always manage to find dirt, fuzz, play doh and everything in-between.
* You adore Bubby, Sissy and most of all Daddy. When he comes in the room you give him the biggest smile of adoration.
* You can say "Mama."
* You are such a joy!
