A month in pictures

It's hard to believe we've known this sweet face for one whole month and one week. It seems like she's been part of us for a whole lot longer. What a blessing she is. Here are some of my favorite pictures taken in the past month that I haven't posted yet. They are in no particular order. Some are my favorites because they're really great photos, some are my favorite because they captured a memory even thought they might not be the best picture. Many of the pics are thanks to my great sister-in-law Shannon.

To try to "delurk" some of you. If you are reading this I want you to leave a comment and vote for your favorite photo. I can't wait to hear from you all.

You have three beautiful children!! I am so happy for you, and can not believe it has been that long!

Lyz said...

Okay, I have two. First, the one of her petting the kitty, because she looks like a farm girl after her momma's heart in those bibs!

Also, I love the one of you, Lydia & T - your expression is just heavenly.

Hi,
I'm with Lyz. My top favorite is the kitten/overall picture- it captures exactly what I would expect your little girl to look like.... until calving season gets here anyway! My second favorite is the one of you and your daughters... I love your face! She looks like one sweet girl! I am not sure when we'll be up there to visit- but if you're ever planning a trip south and it would work- I'd love to meet her and catch up with you!

Thanks girls! The kitty picture is taken in front of my grandma's garage and she LOVED the farm. Especially the animals, she wanted to ride the cows. No fear here.

The one of my and my girls was taken the day we came home. Shannon did a great job of capturing the moment.

They are all so precious. My favorites are in the green barrel and with the kitty. I can't wait to hear all about everything!!!! I hope all is going well. Tessa

Well,

Here's try #2 - I hope it works this time.
Of course I love the picture of T with the kitty, and the one of you and your girls, and the one of T with her two cousins, and the one of T with the balloons because it reminds me of the pics of J & L when you brought them home with all the balloons and the flowers, and the one of T & L in the green bucket - should I go on and on??? I love them all because they make me smile, and I get to show them to everyone at work and they smile too, and you can never have enough smiles around here!!!

I love knowing that she knows who I am now, and that we got to spend to much time together last week - even if I got a cold out of the deal :)

Love,
Mom

Oh man! I love them all. I think the one of T in the Green bucket on top is awesome. I love that green. Your Mom's post made me cry! Call me with your order, K? Love you!!

Wow, they are all great it is really hard to choose. I think my favorite is the one with L & T in the green tub. Just so you know, they all make me smile. Looks like you are all having a lot of fun together...I am so glad. Take care.

You don't even know me, but I have become intrigued by your journey.

My favorite is the one in the green bucket!

Noel said...

Gotta vote for the Daddy/Daughter shot.

Laura said...

All of the pics are awesome, but my favorite is the one with you and the girls. The look on your face says soooo much!! Priceless!
I am so happy for you. T is a beautiful addition to your already beautiful family!!

Hey, I think I like them all the same, but if I had to choose it would be the one with Lydia holding her hands and you looking at Lydia as if to say "here she is, your new sister" Its amazing how God can make everything right!

Totally love the kitty one - just because and then I love the one of you looking at Lydia with T holding Lydia's hands. They are too cute - congrats Valerie, you are so blessed. :)

They are all great shots, but I sooooo have to vote for the girls in the green tub/bucket thing. Lydia and T look so very happy in that one and it is just precious to see.

Valerie...We have so enjoyed following your journey and you are all in our prayer jar...Josiah was excited to hear about Jonah having another sister! I have to say, my favorite pics are of Jonah and T and Lydia and T...they are natural pictures of siblings together....love it!

Heather said...

Ok well that has to be the hardest task ever!! I love them all - does that count? Really it's just such a joy to see T with each of you and the evidence of all that love on your faces. I guess the 2 that stick out are like others have said - the one of you with your 2 girls and love spelled out all over it and the one of the sisters in the green bucket - how precious for Lydi now to get a chance to dote on a younger sibling and a sister no less. But truly - each one of those pictures made me smile and smile (and miss you....).
Happy Bonding Stevensons!!

I love the picture where you are looking at Lydia and Lydia is looking at T. It captures that "we are a family" look.

Blessings to your new addition!

My favorite is the one of "T" petting the kitty.
