Shani, of course, rode in style!!! And was all smiles! She's an outdoor girl just like our boy!
Once we made it back down the trail, we conquered a STEEP embankment and found the COOLEST swimming hole! We weren't prepared for getting wet... but we are quickly learning that to a 3 1/2 year old... whatever clothes you have on... WORK!!!

My favorite picture from the dedication... prayer time... 3 heads bowed (good boy Micah!!!!) ... 1 looking up to heaven and talking to Jesus himself I am sure! :)
Look at this angel in her first "full length gown"! We purchased this dress at the leprosy hospital in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia for a special occasion for Shani! This was it! What a beautiful angel!

... I found myself teary-eyed and looking at David and mouthing the words "I'm going to cry... I need to leave..." Shani and I rapidly excused ourselves for a short walk while the buzzing continued! Ok... he's seriously WAY cute! But I think that was one of the last stages of baby-hood for mommy's little guy!

Fast forward to 2009... let's see... movies in bed... a blue cup for ice water... a green cup for apple juice... cuddly buddies, blankies, and pillows... sign me up (OK... maybe not the sickness... but I'll take a day of relaxation!)!
And what about baby sister... she's zonked out too!
So, what does Mommy do on a "quiet day"... catch up on blogging! tee... hee...
Mommy's Day on Sunday was a special family day that started with a yummy meal made by Micah and Daddy while Mommy and Shani worked on getting pretty for the day...
Baby doll you are drooling too... are you getting teeth like me?
After breakfast we took a few pics outside before church... Shani tells good stories, doesn't she Micah? :)
During nap-time Daddy and I put together a special Mommy's Day present for the family to enjoy!
Welcome to Fort Rock!
Look! A perfect fit! :)
Ok... maybe the kiddos fit a bit better!
And... we celebrated in style at Out of This World Pizza with Daddy & the kiddos! What a wonderful place to be a kid (and a kid-at-heart!!!)

This month's highlights for her include:
Rolling over from tummy to back!
Eating solid foods! (And growing like crazy!!!)
Sitting up and playing!!!!
And her first tooth is coming in, so this may be the last of the gummy smiles! Oh... sad.... that went TOO fast!!!
Big Brother Micah had his own share of milestones!!! His first trip to Disneyland with Daddy! Wow! Now that's a Boy's Adventure!!!!

And... looking cute in our Easter clothes....
It was such a joy-filled day at church as well! We love our church family and were surprised to be greeted by so many people we had never even met before! As we sat down for service... and opened the program entitled "Joy in the morning!" we rejoiced in reading the announcement of Shani's arrival to our family! What a fun day!
