9 Months! (Or so!)

Okay, so I am really very late here!  Ella Joy turned nine months on the 17th but I figure better late than never!

Ever since learning that she is going to be a big sister she has decided to grow up at tremendous speed!  She pulls herself up on everything, is starting on stairs and has cut through four teeth.  Two of which she is sporting in her photo.  The other two are her top eye teeth.  Go figure!

Ella is a joy.  Totally and completely.  I know I say this ALL the time, but there is no other way to more accurately describe what she brings to our family.

No one will argue with you here...her middle name was the perfect choice for this sweet-natured little darling. We love our Ella Joy!

Hi Grace,
You ARE so blessed! I found your blog through the Friend list on Dakota Country Kitchen. Originally caught by your granola recipe and your blogs on day-to-day organization, I've been reading/soaking up your blog yesterday and today. I am very much enjoying/appreciating your perspective on marriage, child-rearing, homeschooling, family, etc. Congratulations on the hope of another sweet addition. Your current four girls are beautiful. 2nd-generation homeschooler- that's so great! We're attempting first generation, and let me just say it is an inspiration to read from the heart of someone who has already been there/done that and is headed there again. Thanks so much for all you share. To God alone be the glory. I'll definitely be back (in an elusive spare moment) to see what else you have cooking in the future. :-)Aimee Baxter, Colorado
