A Wife Loved Like The Church

My beautiful Hannah

Posted on: November 6, 2009

Hannah means Grace.

And truly, God’s grace has been abounding through her.

In August, when we had Jonathan’s birthday party, I found myself elbow deep in 20 pounds of ground beef. It had been a long week (Jonathan was gone every night for work or school) and I still had a party to prepare for. I got Julia off to bed and Hannah just sat in her swing for two hours while I cleaned, cooked, and prepped. Not once did she make a peep.

Last week, while I was doing laundry, she started to get sleepy. I put her in her crib, but she wasn’t going to sleep. So I brought her down stairs and put her on my bed. After just a few minutes, she stopped fussing. I looked over and she was fast asleep!*

This week, I went to Dollar Tree. It was during Hannah’s late afternoon/early evening nap.

And she fell asleep.

In the store.

No crying. Just closed her eyes and went to sleep.

Now, Hannah isn’t always this amazing.

She is really not a fan of anyone else but me – mostly she just doesn’t like other people holding her.

Not even Jonathan sometimes (sorry babe!).

And she does want to nurse all night long.

But, it’s a small price to pay when she’s such a good baby (especially since she comes to bed with us after her first feeding ;)).

She turns 5 months old on the 15th. She can now roll over front to back, back to front. As of last week she is sitting up on her own. It’s not for very long, but she’s getting better and better.

She loves being naked (reminds me of her big sister!) and most thoroughly enjoys when I blow raspberries on her chubby cheeks, neck or tummy. She gets to laughing so hard it makes Julia and I both laugh.

Hannah Michelle is a wonderful, beautiful addition to our family. She’s a keeper.


*Passed out from all her hard work!


Getting all bundled up to go out into the cold.


Laughy baby!

Yeah! Pics of your kids…well Hannah anyways! What a blessing to have a baby who makes life easier than harder!
P.S. I laughed the whole way thru the dino exhibit at Adeline! It was all I could do not to tease her.

Hey….! Hannah and I snuggle all the time. Awe…! She is a keeper.

SO SWEET! I am glad she wasn’t crying just cause she doesn’t like me then ๐Ÿ™‚ It feels good to be so needed and loved, most days! ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚
