Our “Elle Belle”

I can’t believe our sweet Eliana is ONE today!!!  This time last year was a bit of a crazy time!  We are thankful that she is alive and well today!  God was so good to us in giving us this unbelievable gift.  As her name means….”God has answered our prayers!”  Thank you, Lord!

You can go back to a year ago and see her birth story, but I just wanted to post here today that she is such a blessing in our family.  It is amazing to see the bond that her and Austin have….she LOVES him!  Lights up when he walks in the room!  I know that her and Olivia will also be so close being sisters.  I can’t wait to hear all of the girly conversations between them.  I pray that they will encourage each other to seek Christ above all else.  She is a FUNNY girl!  She has us laughing with all of the things that she can mimic with her mouth!  My mom tries to get Eliana to teach her to roll her “r’s…” with no success yet.  Ha!  Eliana was doing that from about 6 months…too funny.  She is a joy…full of love…cuddles with us, cries for us, wants to be near us, loves to make us laugh, and brings everyone a smile with her little muffled, nasally belly-laugh.  I LOVE THAT GIRL!  Thank you, Lord, for my sweet Eliana Elizabeth!

Here are some pictures…funny, but they are my prayer for her life…that she will HUNGER for God, His righteousness, His grace, and His Word.  I pray that she will seek him whole heartedly from a young age and live her life to glorify Him.

yes!  I like this one!

this is good stuff!

hmm...maybe Mom's journal...

great Bible study!

I thought it was hilarious that she was going for all of these…yes…they were the only books on the floor…but!  We just had to take a picture!

HAPPY FIRST BIRTHDAY, ELIANA!!!!!
