The pajamas she is wearing is one of Josh's favorites for a very special reason. When Blake was born Josh's Grandma Elliott gave us a pack of pajamas that had many different colors...including pink. So the pink pairs were packed away in case we ever had a girl. When Liah was born I tried to put her in them but from the start she was too big. Her legs were too long. When I was getting clothes organized a couple of months ago I almost didn't even put these pajamas in the drawer since they are so small and meant for a baby with very short legs. Since Hannah was a month early and such a little peanut (with short, little legs) they fit her perfectly and the first time she wore them I thought of Grandma Elliott immediately. In May will be the one year anniversary of her going home to be with the Lord so it's nice that Hannah has a special present from Grandma Elliott that had never been worn by the other kids.

And now about Liah's hair.......I really don't know what to do with it. In this pic. it's pretty tame but in high humidity it can get these tight "Shirley Temple" curls or somewhere in between. I'm also growing her bangs out and they are at that difficult stage. I can't wait to see her hair long with her curls which I do love by the way. It's just that I already spend so much time on her hair in the morning and if Hannah has the same curls I don't see how I'll ever get out of the house before noon again. If anyone who has curly hair has any suggestions please let me know?

"When the hour came, Jesus and his apostles reclined at the table, and he said to them, "I have eagerly desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer. For I tell you, I will not eat it again until it finds fulfillment in the kingdom of God." Luke 22:14-16
Our Passover Seder was a great time of reflection and fellowship. Josh's parents came over to celebrate with us which the kids were excited about. At the end of the meal the kids went out to find the Afikoman and this year Liah found it. She was very proud that she found it before her older brother. And now the start of the Feast of Unleavened Bread.

" I feel soooo relaxed. Can I have a bath everyday?"
The kids favorite thing to look at is always the tigers. We came at nap time as you can see.
I forgot to get a picture of Liah's outfit. You can kind of see it here. She put together the cutest outfit with a dress that was a little too short with jeans underneath and completed the ensemble with her jean jacket and flip flops. She is quite the fashion diva. Next time I'll make sure to get a close up of it on her.
Hannah was not at all impressed by Potawatami zoo and chose to sleep the whole time in the Bjorn carrier. It was kind of windy and she didn't like when I uncovered her face to get this pic. as you can tell by her gasping for air close-up.

Height: 20 in.
Percentile Overall: 10%
I really don't realize how little she is until I try to put 0-3 month clothing on her. For prayer night I was going to have her wear the outfit that my friend Danielle had bought for her so she could see it on her. Well as you can see she hasn't quite grown into the 0-3 month size as far as pants go.

Two days after we were discharged from the hospital we were headed back. Another set of friends had a baby boy,Joshua Michael. Josh of course approved of the name. This is Tanya and Jeff's first. Joshua is also very adorable.
