About time for an update!

Hi friends! I don't know if anyone still looks at our blog, since I have been seriously slacking in posting these last few months...but if you still peek in from time to time, thank you! I'm going to try to keep this updated more often from now on. : )

Okay, so where do I begin?? Ellie is now 16 months old!! That just does not seem possible! She is such a little girl now, which is so fun but kind of sad at the same time because we feel like she isn't a baby anymore. She is growing up so fast! I catch myself sometimes just starring at her and then realize my eyes are filled up with tears because the love that I have for her is SO overwhelming. At those times, I feel like I get a glimpse of just how much God loves us...even though He loves us more than we can even comprehend, I still feel like I have somewhat of an idea of what that kind of unconditional love looks like.
Ellie has absolutely LOVED the summer time and being outdoors everyday...exploring the backyard, riding her scooter, going down the slide, playing in her play house, going on walks, swinging at the name it, we've probably done it to keep this little go getter busy!

My parents have been down in Mexico for the last 4 weeks because my mom is getting treatment there for breast cancer...and we have been missing them terribly! It just doesn't feel right when you are used to seeing someone everyday then all of a sudden weeks go by and you haven't been able to see them once. It's been really hard for all of us, but we have to keep focusing on my mom getting through and finishing treatment and then we can have them both home for good hopefully!! Poor Ellie has missed her Grammy and Papa so much. All she says is "Papa" and runs in their house looking for him. It breaks our hearts, but it has really helped being able to talk to them on the web cam so Ellie can see them and feel like they are still here. My parents are actually starting to come home on the weekends which is SO GREAT!!!! We are so happy we get to see them more often now and don't have to go weeks at a time without, and Ellie didn't let them out of her sight when they came home last weekend! 4 more weeks until my mom finishes treatment!
Jeremiah's mom (Ellie's Nana) is hopefully going to be coming up to visit next weekend!! We are SO excited to see her and Ellie will LOVE having her Nana here! There is something so special about grandparents...Ellie is a very loved little girl. : )
Okay, enough of me rambling...I'll get to the good stuff now and post some pics of little miss cutie! Here are a few from the last couple of weeks.
