8 Months Old

This darling baby is 8 months old today. Where has the time gone? Seems like yesterday I found out I was pregnant with her and what a happy time that was. I've never had a hard time getting pregnant (Thank You God) but finding out I was pregnant with Ireland was alittle extra special since I had just had a miscarriage a few months prior. You take so much for granted with getting pregnant and having babies til you experience a loss or can't get pregnant. I know many women like this and pray for them daily. I Thank God for Ireland everyday. That he chose to give her to us after a loss and let her be healthy. She has been such a joy to everyone.

I feel I've enjoyed her baby moments more than my others (not that I don't love them like her) but I feel being older,wiser,more confident, and experiencing a loss has taught me so much. Not to take all those little moments for granted and to enjoy everyday with her. She's getting so big. My baby is growing. She's getting two bottom teeth and saying "mama." What a joy.

Happy 8 Months Ireland Reeve!!! We love you little butterbean.



Beautiful baby











Look at those chunky legs.











That smile melts my heart

She's so cute! I really miss that stage. I love the ages my girls are now, but I'm definitely a baby person too.

You have such a beautiful family! :-)
