10 Months Old (and back to the blogging world!!!)

I think I'm actually back for good!  It has been so sad this past month  to stop by my blog and see the same old writing that has sat there for weeks!  Hopefully some of you still remember me and will stop back by and give me a wave.

First order of business, Ella is now officially 10 months old!

Her biggest changes this month have been learning to wave (she now crawls up on the back of the couch and waves like no tomorrow with her sisters!), standing on her own for long periods of time (Will we have one who walks "on time"?  With her sisters not walking until 13, 14 and 16 months, I'm not holding my breath!) and becoming a total ham.  She has always had a goofy side, but she is now a total cheese ball that keeps us constantly in stitches!

We adore her.  Every single one of us.  What would life be like without out sweet Ella Joy?

Since writing last, Bethany has turned four (birthday pictures to come soon!), we got our Christmas tree, I've been working hard on a "secret project" (Just be patient! You'll find out soon!) and our tiny little one has been growing rapidly throwing me into that lovely stage of "too early for maternity clothes/ too big for regular".  Pretty soon I'll start making Christmas candy though, and that should help push me over the edge!

Last night was Lydia's first piano recital.  She started lessons back in October with my sister, Mary and has LOVED it!  The recital was only for six students (of which Lydia was by far the youngest!), so it was perfect for a first time.  We were so proud of our little baby! 

Well, it's good to be back!  I can't wait to catch up with all of you!

It's great to see you back, Grace!
I do so enjoy reading your blog! Your daughters are precious--it's fun to see how much they've grown already!
