My how time flies! She is such a joy....what a blessing! Thanks for sharing with us on the blog.

The Lord has done great things!!!

Monica said...

And before you know it it will be 2 mo. and 3 mo. and right now I'm looking at my precious 4 mo. old son being smothered by his big sister, who is about to be 2. Seriously, where does the time go?!

Marc and Charity said...

Already? That was fast! Hope y'all are doing good!

Alana said...

I cant beleive its been that long!! I feel like Mac is growing so fast! He'll be 3 weeks on Thursday

Can you believe a month has passed?

Oh and FYI, I tried your Chicken Cheddar Rice Bake last night. It was a hit!!! Thanks!!

"Dove" said...

The snuggles get better by the day, but there is something extraordinary about that very first "how do you do" that lives in infamy in the heart of a Mommy. Isn't it crazy? Where all that love comes from in one amazing moment? Truly makes me wonder how head-over-heels in instant love we will be when we come face to face with our Savior one day! :) Fun to think about.

By the way...I made your chicken cheesy rice for dinner, which I mention only because we're on the subject of love-at-first sight. Ohmycheesystars. It's a keeper!

Time definitely flies by! My baby turned 10 on Monday and it seems like I just brought her home from the hospital. By this time next year she and her sister will both be taller than me. I told them I could still wear them out if I needed to though, lol!

Beth said...

And not long after that, Daddy and I held her, too! I've thought about it so much today! Thanked God for that darling angel this morning...and her darling big brother. Thank you for walking through the valley of the shadow, my precious child.

Ginger said...

What a precious thought. It's amazing how much each baby changes your life. Enjoy each and every day even though some of them may be filled with challenges because they go by so fast! My precious daughter will be turning 8 on April 3rd and it seems like it was just yesterday that I was holding her and thinking that very same thing!

MITZI said...

time sure flies doesn't it.

Michelle said...

WHOOP!!!!!

Tiffani said...

time really.does.fly. enjoy every moment! it's so hard with two! when i look about pics of my little girl, I remember soo little and think "was this my life?" She had reflux, colic and some other issues and it was just so hard. And, then with my oldest..I was homeschooling so I had something diverting my attention (naturally) but still...

I feel like she's been the curly top 4 year old forever...so hard to remember her that age...so smell that sweet Annabeth good ;) and soak her in!!

Patty said...

How precious! I still smile at the blessing of a sweet baby girl for you!

Kelli said...

Wow - I can't believe how fast time has flown by. My baby girl is turning one in less than a month and I am having such an emotional time with it!!

Three Fold Cord said...

So SWEET!!

Mandi said...

Sweet memories. I love to play the "One month ago..." or "One year ago..." game. I'm very nostalgic that way. (:

Allison said...

Lucky you! You have been blessed with two amazing little ones!

Laura said...

How precious! May GOD bless you !

Holly said...

What a blessing to notice!!

I bet she's already wrapped each of you around her little finger, too! I love babies!

3girlsmom said...

And one month ago we were all smiling and praying for and thanking God for our newest Siesta.
Happy One Month Birthday, Annabeth!

Jessie said...

this little milestone has come way too fast - and I'm not even the mama doing the day to day stuff! I am sure in someways it seems like yesterday and in other ways you can't remember life before Annabeth. Babies grow way too fast.

Molly said...

Amazing how fast the time goes by! I am sure she is such a blessing. She sure is a cutie.

connorcolesmom said...

ONE MONTH AGO - it seems like yesterday
Where does the time go???
Wow I bet she has changed so much :)

Tara said...

Has a month gone by that quickly? Wow, time really does fly!

AKat said...

Wow! It doesn't seem like it was that long ago that you announced her arrival! Time just needs to SLOW DOWN already!

Beth.. One Blessed Nana said...

Isn't it amazing how fast that month has gone? I am so happy that you have your 2 precious little ones. You also have such a great mom. I am the kind of nana that your mom is. I love my grandbabies to pieces!

Looking forward to more pics of the little angel and her big brother.

In Him,
Beth

Fran said...

And, that makes me tear up. Cherish the days, sweet Momma.

Mel @ Studio MCA Designs said...

Becca said...

So special!

Mocha with Linda said...

Wow. Hard to believe it's already been a month. She'll be in kindergarten before you can blink!

Mary said...

Really? Already? I know it likely seems like she's been here forever for you but I remember being so excited for you the day she arrived--and it seems like yesterday!

Marla Taviano said...

Awwwww...

Cindy said...

Amazing, isn't it? God is so good.

Big Mama said...

I can't believe it's been a month!

The Barfuss Family said...

Oh my!! I can't believe it's been a month already!!!

bethany said...

She is already a month old...wow how time flies!
Celebrating with you on your first month with your little girl. :)

Cindy- My Life HIS Story said...

I can't believe it has been a month!!

Believe it or not, I thought the same thought last Tuesday, but substitute "20 years" for 1 month! It flies, sweet girl.

And just as a reminder...sleep deprivation IS NOT your destiny - it will pass!
Praying blessings on your precious family.
Cindy

valerie said...

I can't believe she's already a month old!

Moose Mama said...

The bittersweet reality of time passing all too quickly! I know you do...but it never hurts to hear...enjoy every moment, Amanda.

Melana

Heather said...

I can't believe it has been a whole month. Enjoy your blessing, my friend!

Andreea said...

I echo the others in asking "Already?" :) Too sweet!

Keri said...

Already???

I guess time flies when you are not a sleep deprived mom that's juggling a 3 year old who loves Matchbox cars and being the only food source for a sweet baby girl!

Kim said...

Wow! That time has gone so quickly, it just seems like a couple of weeks ago, you had your little girl.

Lauren Kelly said...

Times goes at a warp speeed doesn't it???? she's a beauty Amanda!!! Enjoy every day with her, all 18 years and beyond!!!!! :o)

barbara head said...

Time does fly!! Savor every single moment--one day you will wake up and say "Jackson and Annabeth are graduating from 'nursery school, high school, college'--where oh where did the time go". I know-I have been there.

The Synnott's said...

its crazy how time flies!!! she is beatiful

SarahfromWyoming said...

Enjoy these precious moments.

Heather said...

That is so sweet, it's amazing how fast it really does go by! You think that those long nights will last forever and before you know your planning their 1st birthday!! Happy 1 month Annabeth!

Yolanda said...

Wow....and 2-3 months from now you were perhaps telling us that there was a special little one on the way.

:-)

Miss Jenn said...

It goes ENTIRELY too fast. My firstborn will be 3 months on Monday...how did that happen?
(insert weepy sigh here!)

But she is such a blessing and we love her so very much! What was life before her?

The Murphys said...

how sweet!

Michele Helms said...

Are you amazed at how much faster it goes with the second child. If you have more it will be even faster!!?? It is nuts. Savor...Savor...Savor

MamaCass said...

OH Amanda I have just been catching up on your last month. Annabeth is so so precious! Can you believe you have a girl? I loved reading your birth story and I could just see her opening her eyes for the first time and seeing her mommy. So very sweet!

petrii said...

Amanda,
How does that even happen? One month really?!! What a wonderful month it has been for you and your family.

Have a Blessed evening,
Dawn

Sweet memories!

Jen said...

Hi Amanda, it's Jen the Newlywed :)

Last night I was at church (I help teach the Pre-School/Kindergarten choir) and I saw Curt walk by with Mr. Jackson. I just smiled at how big he is! He didn't look like a toddler, he looked like a LITTLE BOY! He was just as precious as can be.

Hope you are enjoying all that baby-girl goodness!

Jen

Dionna said...

Wow - a month already! True testament to how quickly our kids grow!
