Birthday Boy and a Name for our Little Girl

Yesterday was an exciting day for us! We got to "see" our newest addition...

Eden Joy Gentry

She wasn't in the greatest position for pictures, but that's ok! Everything looked great which is always a blessing to hear.

Another girl and a sister for Macy! We are ecstatic:-)
When I was just certain Macy was going to be a boy, Josh would say "I don't know...I think I'm destined to have girls!" He's a wonderful "girl Daddy" and my daughters are so blessed to have him.

Speaking of, yesterday was also Josh's 32nd birthday! The neat thing is we had Macy's 22 week sonogram on my birthday in July and Eden's on Josh's birthday yesterday. Makes them extra special!

Making sure everything's accounted for...

New shirts

Macy's gift to Daddy was more like the gift of time....
"time" as in golf lessons!

Psalm 26:3 is the verse we've prayed over Macy since before she was born; desiring for her to know the Lord and walk in His Truth. Before we even knew this baby was a girl, we've been drawn to 1 Peter 3:3-4...

"Your adornment must not be merely external...but let it be the hidden person of the heart, with the imperishable quality of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is precious in the sight of God."

We can't wait to meet you, Eden Joy!

15 Months

Macy turned 15 months on Sunday. I feel like she has changed so much since her 1st birthday. We have definitely entered the full-blown discipline phase, which is super fun:-/ There are some days when Josh comes home and I just couldn't brag on her enough..."She listened so well today!" "I really think she's got it figured out!" And then the next day she gives me a subtle dose of reality: Discipline is never ending! She really is a sweet girl and I'm so proud of her, but I've learned to stay humble, because she will put me in my place with one sharp, defiant moment.

With that said, I really am loving this age! Her little personality is exploding and I love how she learns new words every day.

Macy, at 15 months you are:

  • 17 lbs 13 oz (1st%)
  • 29.5 in (22nd% - Big jump!)
  • size 3 diapers
  • size 2 shoes (some 3)
  • size 12 months or 6-12 months
  • sleeping 8:30 - 8:30
  • transitioning out of morning nap (sometimes you take one, sometimes you don't)
  • 2-3 hour afternoon nap
  • watching "Olivia" and "Curious George"
  • just getting into "Veggie Tales"
  • enjoying books and anything you can ride on or push
  • loving on your puppies and very sweet with them
  • a huge breakfast eater! You love muffins, waffles, pancakes, bananas, and oatmeal
  • favorite foods: pizza, cheese spaghetti, Chick-fil-A, fruit
  • running everywhere!
  • singing and dancing (mainly to the "Olivia" theme song)
  • talking all the time!
Words you can say pretty well:
  • please
  • puppies
  • baby
  • trash
  • pancakes
  • excuse me
  • starting to say "Olivia" :-)
  • cheese
  • yes sir
  • church
  • Jesus
  • thank you
  • Amen (the last three combined are how she prays :-)
  • cup
  • hot
Names you can say somewhat clearly:
  • Daddy
  • Papa
  • Pops
  • Jack
  • Cason
  • Bryce
She is really attempting to repeat things that we say and understanding more and more. What a little sponge right now!!!

Valentine's Day and the Three Little Pigs

Happy Valentine's Day!

What a difference a year makes...

Macy's shirt was made by my friend Kathryn (Bitter Berry Boutique). It turned out so cute!

Since Macy is such a big "Olivia" fan, we decided to give her an Olivia doll for Valentine's Day. She got it last night and has hardly put it down!

Watching "Olivia" before bed

We stopped by the office to see Daddy this afternoon. We call this picture the "Three Little Pigs"...

Sleeping Beauty

I don't know about you, but one of my favorite things to do is watch Macy sleep. And most times, I can't resist taking a quick picture to remember how precious she looked. I thought it would be neat to post some of the "sleeping" pics I've taken. The first ones go pretty far back...

We discovered our love for Piglet and began sleeping with one we bought on our summer trip in Dallas

As Macy grew, so did her Piglet :-)

One of my personal favorites :-)

My mother-in-law made the girls these precious Minnie Mouse gowns. They all wore them home from lunch yesterday and Macy napped in hers and slept in it last night. She looked so cute in it!
