Weeks 49-52

 Twelve months old! HAPPY 1st BIRTHDAY!!

We've spent 3 weeks in July at beaches in Florida and one in Orlando. It's been one long vacation, lots of family time and enjoyment of each other. We've all been so thankful for this journey we are on. Life on the RV seems so normal at this time. Everyone is thriving, well adjusted and most of all, we are together as a family!

Here you are in Orlando with a new friend :) I LOVE that
we were able to meet up with one of Mommy's online friends!

Mommy LOVES you!

Pensacola Naval Museum 

I LOVE this shot of you and Sissy

I LOVE that we were able to capture our family in self portraits
in a beautiful setting on your birthday

I LOVE that Daddy made your cake and used a beach theme :)

Your sweet footprint

I LOVE that we made time for an evening stroll to cap off your birthday. I made sure to make a mental note of every detail on your precious face, your smell and the feeling of my heart overflowing with joy! 

You LOVE baby dolls so that's what we gave you :) 
We all played Pin the Tail on the Donkey before bed.
I LOVE that we made this special memory on your first birthday in our tiny home on wheels.

...and just like that, in the blink of an eye, your first year came and went so quickly.  What a year it was our precious Moriyah Elyse! We've grown as a family in love, trust, and our faith. You've taught each of us so much about the wonders of life and the freshness of the Father's hand in each area of our days. You have blessed us so richly that words won't accurately describe the depth. I've seen a different side of each of the children when they tenderly care and love on you. YHWH truly new what He was doing when he surprised us with you ♥ 

 I'm making a keepsake book from this blog just like the one from your birth. I won't post here anymore and will miss it but am so thankful that I kept it up and know the memories will be treasured for a lifetime.

Here is a picture collage of your first year...

Weeks 45-48

Eleven months old sweet girl! You've learned to do so many new things this month. It's been a lot of fun traveling, watching you learn and explore.  Here are a few of my favorite pictures from the month...


Father's Day in Huntsville, Alabama
I LOVE that you are eating more solids now and of course
I LOVE any photos of you with Daddy

I LOVE to look down and see your sweet face during the day (and night)
I LOVE to have your "help" on busy prep days in our tiny kitchen

I LOVE that you nap well so I can tour historic homes

Burrit on the Mountain

I LOVE taking you to new places... Space Center for Gregory's birthday

I LOVE your pink seat cushion and how cute you look in it

Happy Birthday Rebekah! I LOVE my girls!

Huntsville Botanical Gardens... napping of course! 

I LOVE to see you "playing" with your siblings... here at a Children's Museum

I LOVE that your hair is longer and thicker so you can wear bows now

You are amazing us all with your learning! You're communicating so well, repeating our words, using sign language, responding when asked to do/ get something specific. The children are really enjoying this stage! You adjust quickly to each new environment as we travel along. You nap in the sling and are most content there so I've had to adjust to wearing you mostly all day. Not sure how much you weigh. You've yet to go to the Doctor. We don't have a scale on the RV so I couldn't even guess.
Most people say you look like Dalton and have more of my features. 
I love your laugh, your smell,  your smile! I love it when you run up to me and say "Mom" or "Hi" when I pick you up in the mornings! I love to see you dance and clap to your favorite songs. We all love you so much girly! We are heading to Florida for the month of July and are all looking forward to some fun in the sun :)
So thankful to be your Mommy ♥

What I love about you

Weeks 40-44

TEN months old Miss Moriyah and what a joy! I love you so much! It's hard to believe your first birthday is just around the corner.  We are officially full time RVer's and you are doing wonderfully with all the travel. Here are a few highlights from your 10th month...

I LOVE to see you walking! You are doing so well taking a few steps here and there!

LOVE to wear you in a sling *still! You will sleep for hours in it!

LOVE that you are content to play outdoors in your playpen.

LOVE to see your brothers caring for you!

LOVE that we were able to stay the night with Great Grandma! You had fun being pushed around in her clothes basket!

LOVE to have you "help" me in the kitchen.  Here you playing in the drawers.

I LOVE the pictures from your first Shavuot. 

I LOVE that we took an impromptu trip to San Antonio and how much fun we all had!

I LOVE that Daddy made your own little space special just for you!

I LOVE that we were able to see Nonnie for her birthday

You look so sweet learning to walk! The children are having a ball as you practice going back and forth between them. So far you just have two bottom teeth and are still nursing throughout the night. I bought you an amber teething necklace after a friend recommended it. It seems to calm you a bit. You are definitely my most high need baby but it's getting better. I'm thankful to have so many helpers! You are waving and saying hi to everyone, still learning baby sign language and really communicating now. You are very healthy. We've not been to a Doctor once. This month you had your first chiropractic adjustment on our RV by a new friend we met. What a blessing and so convenient. Daddy put up your name canopy on the RV by our bed to create your own space. You alternate between your playpen and our bed at night. We've been doing a lot of hiking, outdoor activity which you love. You've always been happier outside since you were born. I'm looking forward to a new sling to carry you on the back in. Your hair is getting lighter, eye lashes are longer and most everyone says you look like your Mommy! May YHWH continue to keep His hand on you and shine His face upon you. I love you so much!

Scripture and Quotes

"Children are a heritage of YHWH; the fruit of the womb is His reward. As arrows in the hand of a mighty man, so are the children of youth. Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them: they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate. " Psalm 127:3-4

The Scriptures teach that debt is a curse and children are blessings; but in our culture, we apply for a curse and reject blessings. Something is wrong with this picture.
