Another weekend come and gone....

Hannah outside playing and enjoying the Georgia sun!
It seems as though the days have just been flying by lately! In a way this is good.  It means we are getting closer and closer to moving back to WA, but that means we are getting closer to our unknown future and I hate the unknown! 

I also LOVE and HATE how fast Hannah is growing up.  It seems like only yesterday I brought home my tiny 4 lb princess and now she is starting to talk and is on the verge of walking.  She has been saying "Mama" and "Daddy" for months but just this last week she has added "Thank You", "Ducky", and "Kitty"  She isn't quite walking on her own yet, but she is getting there!

Princess Hannah in her Princess buggy!
It is difficult for me to gauge if she is advance or falling behind since she was born almost 2 months early and the doctors say she could take up to 2 years to fully catch up.  I know for a fact that she isn't behind on walking, but she also isn't ahead.  Her social and verbal skills however amaze me.  She has been trying to talk for a long time now.  She sits and reads her books to herself in her own baby Hannah language and hold conversations with me in this same language.  It is so amazing to me to hear her start to actually make out "real" words!  She also listens and understands very well.  For instance she has a little pink car that I push her around in and when I tell her to honk the horn she does it on command!  This and other little things always seem to amaze me!    It is so wonderful to see her develop and grow especially after her rough start, but it also is sad that time goes by so fast and I know she won't always be a baby! :( I love to take pictures of her though...and dress her up in what Josh calls "ridiculous" outfits, but I am positive he means ridiculousLY CUTE outfits like the Easter outfit I have her in above!


  1. ohhh i love the rabbit ears!!!

    Thanks for sharing

  2. Dont' worry. Little people grow at their own pace. Just stay active with her and she will come around. The brain works on 'optimal time'. When it's ready it will let it happen.
