The blink of an eye....

I feel like I blinked and now I have a 3 1/2 month baby girl with 2 teeth. Life has been going with nursing, weekend family time, craft nights with some of my favorite ladies, running, gardening, laundry, and never ending housework :) it's all going so fast but there are moments I hope to remember forever...

My 1st grade teacher, Mrs. Kawai, such a sweet, servant of God. I love it that she is in our lives.

I love this place called the Carlsbad Inn. I have the best memories of summers with my family, birthday parties, getting engaged and look forward to many more summers with my family

I admire their love <3

We got to stay a week with my parents down by the beach, it was wonderful!

In the blink of an eye I know my baby will be swimming

the 3rd floor. seems like yesterday that Mark proposed to me here.

baby love

Auntie Natalie loves telling Emily stories

May 9th we saw Emily's first tooth, a week later the 2nd one was breaking through the skin. She's been a happy baby

You are so loved my little one.

love this ruffle bottom and how it fits in my arm

good looking couple!

Best Mother's Day EVER!

She's a great mom and I'm so happy she's Emily's grandma

She constantly sets an example that we look up to

This melts my heart.

So does this. Juliana loves making Emily pictures

  1. So perfect you and your little family!! I love that sweet little baby girl so much! :o)......and it's about time you posted something new!!

  2. What sweet memories to have recorded! This baby girl is sooooo loved! Trent told me the other night " I have one cousin her name is Emily and I love my cousin". Emily is certainly full of surprises...due in January, born in February and teeth at 3 months. She keeps us guessing in good ways. Love you sweet baby girl! XXOO
    PS. That last photo should win a contest!! ADORABLE!!!

  3. Boy, these last three months and the family times we have had have been so wonderful. It is quite amazing what a new baby will bring with them into the world ...love, unity, excitement, zest for life, the awes and ooos for the little things, like two teeth and a baby's smile. Some say a baby fills the arms again as for a grandma. I know it surely has mine and Grandma Mabel. I treasure our family times. I am always thankful for each of my children. The Lord has been good to us. Emily is in a huge circle of love. What great things she will tell to her brother and sister. You and Mark are both a wonderful attentive mommy and daddy. So proud of you both.

  4. I agree with Stephanie, IT IS about time you had a new post! Adorable - as always. I can't believe she's going to be 4 months old tomorrow! WOW! Sorry for the late comment! I have visited the page many times, but I haven't commented on how cute that baby girl is and how beautiful you look Jess! Someday you'll have to help me pick out a camera because these photos are amazing! Especially that last one, though Em really makes it :) xoxo
