Twenty Weeks of Bliss

Our sweet Answer is now 20 weeks old.  In a blink, Eliana has grown from a tiny, cuddly newborn to a delightful, curious and energetic infant (still cuddly).  We are madly in love with our little girl and thankful for each new day we have with her.  She’s mastered rolling over and can now (when balanced) hold herself in the seated position for long periods of time.

Eliana loves jumping!  Dear friends loaned us their jumperoo seat a few weeks ago and Eliana can’t get enough of it.  She laughs every time she’s in it, jumping herself clear off the ground.  Strengthening those little legs!  Perhaps ballet is in her future?

We’ve officially entered the put-everything-possible-within-reach-in-your-mouth phase.  Toys, socks, blankets, your arm.  Anything!  Eliana is all about chewing and drooling these days.  Of course, we can’t help but smile…even when she drools all over us.  She’s just so darn cute!

The past 20 weeks with our little sweetheart have been such an incredible gift.  Eliana Faith continues to embody her name as we see God’s answer to countless prayers lived out in her life.  We are so grateful that the Lord entrusted her to us and eagerly look forward to the days, months, and years ahead with our precious little girl.

    What a blessing and joy to see the love. Patience, Eliana definitely has your eyes and the wonder to know about everything there is to see…that is so much a part of both you and Jordan. And I bet there is an amazing voice and musical gifting that is waiting to reveal.
    Merry Christmas.
