Loveable Lauren

These days Lauren is just so...loveable

If I could freeze time right now for Lauren I would. This is my FAVORITE stage...6-9 months. I don't think I knew with Samuel it was my favorite because I hadn't experienced anything else. I think babies start out hard, get easier and then get harder again for awhile.

I say that with all my 19 months of motherhood experience :)

Right now we are in the easy stage: no more swaddle, no more night wakings, 11 hours of sleep, two naps of 1 1/2-2 hours, 4 feedings a day, 3 meals of baby food, laughter, smiles, and all around contentment as long as she has something in her hand to suck on.

Yes, in her hand is a baby shampoo bottle. Both kids loved sucking on those. It works and it makes her happy and it's sanitized. Gotta love cheap toys....

Lauren's big blue eyes continue to draw many comments from strangers. She got her first tooth on Monday. She can sit up great. She doesn't crawl yet and I'm hoping she won't for a couple more months (yeah, right).

Lauren is a light in my life. My sweet baby girl. She is adored by her dad, her brother and a bundle of grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins.

So loveable she is.

Your daughter is lovely! I really enjoyed visiting your website today!

Could you PLEASE pray for me? I read on some other ladies blogs who suffered from infertility
and endometriosis that your prayers are powerful!

My husband and I will be celebrating our third anniversary on June 16th. We have been trying to conceive for almost three years now without any success. I need a LOT of prayers for a miracle! You see, I will turn 44 on August 2nd. Two years ago I was diagnosed with endometriosis stage four. I have been praying and pleading to God to be blessed with the gift of a child for a long, long time!

By the way, my name is Maria and my hubby's name is Ed. My heart and arms ache for a child!

Thank you so much! In turn, I will continue to pray for God's continued blessings for you and your family!
