New baby, new home

Here is our new family at our new home on August 26, 2011. This was an amazing day walking into our house for the first time as a family of four. We prayed for a year that God would move us into a new home before we had another baby join our family. We moved into our home on August 9 and Elizabeth came into our family on August 22nd. "The LORD has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy"!

She's Here!

Elizabeth Ann Frazer! Born August 22, 2011 at 8:08am. Weight: 7lbs. 12oz; Height 21 inches. She is perfect and the most beautiful thing I have ever seen. Lots and lots of hair, a beautiful little complexion and makes the sweetest noises. She has long fingers like Dax did, but even her hands are narrow and petite. Everything about her is feminine.

Mommy with Elizabeth and big brother, Dax! My heart is overflowing!

The three loves of my life: Daddy, Dax and Elizabeth

This is a famous Frazer picture is our most precious picture with Dax so we had to get one like this with Elizabeth.

For you have been my hope, O Sovereign LORD, my confidence since my youth. From birth I have relied on You; You brought me forth from my mother's womb. I will ever praise You.

Psalm 71:5-6

Excitement Abounds!

The last time I posted was Dax's birthday, and a lot has happened since then. We began to prepare our townhome for Elizabeth to arrive and for the four of us to fit in our little 2 bdrm townhome. Dax moved into a big boy bed and we had a huge garage sale to purge and make more space.

Well, two weeks ago we got an offer on our house and went under contract just two days after we received the offer. The next day we went house hunting and found a house that not only had our few non-negotiables, but it had all of the things we have prayed for on our impossible prayer list! Its at the end of a cul-de-sac, 4bdrms upstairs with two more in the basement, and a 3 car garage for my wonderful husband! We are overwhelmed by God's generosity. So we are officially under contract with a new home.

In the month of August we close on our current home on August 3rd, close on our new home August 9th, I turn 30 on August 9th, we welcome 11 staff to our campus ministry here at CU on August 10th, and we welcome our sweet Elizabeth Ann into the world on August 22nd (not to mention that is the first day of school)! We are so excited (and a little overwhelmed)!

Needless to say, my nesting instincts have kicked in and I have officially started preparing for Elizabeth's room. I finished her bedding, which I will post once I put it all together in her crib, and made some fun letters to hang on her wall. So excited for her to join our family!

"Delight yourself in the LORD and He will give you the desires of your heart. Commit your ways to the LORD, trust in Him, and He will act." Psalm 37:4-5

Dax turns 2!

On May 5th Dax will be 2 years old! Where has the time gone?! We celebrated his birthday with our students at CU this past Friday and had so much fun together. Dax couldn't wait to sink his teeth into the Elmo cake mommy made for him. And his Buddy and Gigi got him a super cool bike called a Strider...moms, check this bike out on line. Its so fun!

Baby bedding

This is the bumper I am making for Elizabeth's crib. I have just cut everything out and need to finish a few more pieces before I start sewing together.

Here is the fabric for her bedding. The flower fabric is the crib bumper and the polka dot fabric is the crib skirt. So fun to work on!

Baby girl update...and of course Dax my love!

Dax loving on mommy! I cannot get enough of this boy and can't imagine what its going to be like with a little girl around the house!

Dax loves his little sister already...actually, he just loves to kiss mommy's belly and give me zurburts all the time.

2o weeks! Half way there! This is right after we found out we are having A GIRL! Elizabeth Ann Frazer, we are so excited to have you be a part of our family!

14 Weeks...seems my belly popped out much quicker than last time. Have you noticed a pattern in these pictures that I look tired? Chasing around a toddler and growing a baby is hard work!

My beautiful boy!

I can't help but show off how beautiful I think my little boy is! Guess I am a proud mommy. He has grown so much since the last time I posted a picture. He is almost 22 months here...2 in May! We can hardly believe two years have already passed. And now Dax is getting ready to be a big brother. He constantly says, "my baby". I can only imagine how big he will look when the new baby arrives sometime late August/early September.
