we celebrate one year of jillian

The day we brought her home from the hospital.



Just a few days ago.



What you might want to know about Jillian:

She's taking a few steps at a time. (Six at the most so far.)
She says, "Wow!", "yeah!" and "oooo" (same sound in "boot")
Also says, "da da" and "ma ma" and has done some random repeating...
She wakes up happy and chatty.
Jillian knows her brothers by name and will point to them when prompted (sometimes).
She has seven teeth...the eighth one is taking it's time and causing her pain!
Jillian melts our hearts every day and we are grateful beyond words that we get to have her in our daily lives. I am ever grateful to God for blessing us with her.

Hey Jenna,
We've got opposites: you have 2 boys and a girl; I have 2 girls and a boy... hmmmm... could there be any Snell-Scheetz marriages in the future? Your Miles is so cute; seems very similar to Lauren's personality. Maybe it's the second-born thing. Lauren's always making up songs. A blog would totally be her thing... one of these days maybe we'll make one together.

Loved hearing your voice the other day!

Love,
Lorraine ;)

Happy Birthday, Jillian!

I have some pretty darn cute nieces and nephews, but I have to say....Jillian is adorable! From the videos and pictures I've seen, she seems to have a delightful personality to match!

I'd be there in a minute, if I could....

Love,
Karla

And you didn't mention she's the heiress to Vanna White's job, with all her oooohing and ahhhhhing. ;o)

I totally missed the whole point of this post!

Hope you all had fun today, and maybe took some good video footage of dimples covered in frosting! Looking forward to the day we can meet in person, Jillian.

p.s. you should be proud-this is the first public comment I have EVER left. I can get shy about it-but you are worth getting over it. :)
