Growing up...







Elijah is growing up so fast. Yesterday he decided would be the day he would start walking. He had taken his first steps about a month ago, but then only wanted to crawl. Yesterday, he just started walking all over the apartment. Caleb and I couldn't believe it.

I'm still loving every minute with him. He brings more joy to our lives than I ever imagined. It's hard though...somedays I think I've kind of figured the parenting thing out and other days I don't have a clue. God is so gracious though. He's carried me through every minute and always gives me the strength I need.

A photographer at our church opens up his studio once a year to raise money for Summer Missions. He takes pictures for fifteen minutes and just asks we leave a donation. All the money goes to the mission trips people in our church will be going on. I signed Elijah up and these are some of the shots he got.
