Last fall I entered us into a contest to win a photography session with the awesome photographer, Crissie Traugott, who did my maternity pictures and newborn pictures with Eliana. She is awesome!
The bad news: we didn't win.
The good news: she's holding another contest and we are entered!!!
Could you please vote and help us win?
To help, please visit Crissie's Facebook site and "like" her page.
Then, please lave a comment on our photo! Simply "liking" the photo won't count.
For every 5 comments, we get 1 entry into the drawing.
Thanks for helping us!

Sitting here listening to Pandora, and on came one of my David Crowder Favorites... Never Let Go.
I love that line, the one that says, "In joy and pain, in sun and rain, You're the same, You never let go."
It is the constancy of God's character that causes me to still hope... to know that we can trust Him, not because of His activity, but because of His constant character.
These past few months continue to be filled with such joy as we continue to watch Eliana grow up. I am in constant awe of the miracle that she is... her amazing personality, how much she is learning, the way she laughs. How she is developing preferences for certain things, like sweet over savory (just like her Mama!) and like cats over dogs... for particular books over others. She is becoming a fairly proficient walker (video to follow in an upcoming post!), knows how to point to Mommy's nose, says several words (like purple, Isaac, and cheese). She is absolutely amazing.
It's incredible to me that a person has the capacity to envelope such joy, while the missing can simultaneously still linger. I often wonder what Eliana and Isaac would do if they had been given the chance to play together. I wonder if he would be as enamored by his little sister as we are.
I am just really grateful for the fact that God just meets us in that, and that the constancy of His character allows me to be able to trust Him, even though I don't always understand what He may be up to.
