Fun on Sundays!

We have so much fun on Sundays!  April has been a fun month for Elizabeth. We have celebrated the death and Resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, spent a lot of time with immediate and extended families, and has enjoyed some of the most beautiful weather! 

Elizabeth's little personality shines more each day.  She can be very shy when you first meet her....for at least 3 minutes or so. After that, she will sing and dance for you as long as you will watch. Her favorite song at the moment is "Holy, Holy, Holy" and one she calls "The Rainbow Song" (it's a song my dad used to sing to me when I was little).  She loves Thomas the Train and Caillou, she loves to color on paper (and other things, oh my) and  enjoys taking care of her "babies".  Also, when she asks you a question such as "Where are we, mommy?" or "What's that thing?" She attaches "honey" to the end. So it's "What's that thing, honey?" it is so funny hearing such a "Southern" term of endearment coming from this tiny little girl

We are still working on her thumb sucking, although she has not been doing it as much as she used to. We have successfully changed her crib to "toddler style" and it's been fantastic! She hasn't cried or fussed about it or even gotten out of bed. She very sweetly waits for me to get her in the morning or after her nap.  I first tried this at 18 months out of curiosity and it was a disaster. For my child, at least, waiting until 23 months was the best thing! 

This little girl loves all of her grandparents. Just absolutely adores them . I am so thankful for sweet family and friends :)

Below are a few pictures from this past Sunday and then a few from Easter Sunday after church (and her nap!). She found that the Easter Bunny hid eggs for her to find when she woke up from her nap!

I can't believe in a few short weeks we will be celebrating this sweet girls second birthday! We are so thankful God saw fit to bless us with this feisty, but sweet little girl.
