This video was taken a few days ago. Lydda Grace was listening to Jon playing guitar and was waving her arms and legs. I thought it looked like she was dancing :o) It also looks like she takes after me and has no rhythm... sigh...
(oh... sorry you have to turn your head to watch... I'm not sure how to flip the video...)
This was a busy weekend for Jon. Lydda Grace and I went for a walk Saturday over to his area of campus and walked around for a bit with him. Then we were so glad to have Mrs. Dixie and Mr. Chris, Karen, and the Boerckels stop by to visit! It was a fun day! Aunt Bethy moved back to Clemson on Sunday so we are glad to have her back!
It's nice to have the school year underway and to feel like we can start the process of getting into our own little routine. Jon is starting further graduate studies this semester and is teaching an RA class as well as all his regular duties so that will make things exciting for us all. Lydda Grace and I are sticking with the eat, sleep, poop schedule for now :o)
Gran and Lydda Grace. Doesn't this little girl look good in orange! (Though we've also commented how cute she looked today in green, brown and pink... yes this is clothes change number 4... she can make a mess!)
This is a dress from my sisters and I when we were little. We tried the bonnet on and then just laid the dress on top of Lydda Grace. She looked so funny and cute!!
This paci is about as big as her whole face!
Here is Lydda Grace with her bear from Papa and Granna (Jon's parents). We are going to try to take pictures of her periodically with it to show how much she's grown.
This video is Lydda Grace in her swing. It almost looks like she waves at one point... almost :o)
Jon had to work today, he was doing teambuilding training for the RAs outside on-campus. Thankfully, the weather was actually not too bad today so Lydda Grace and I walked out to surprise him and for her to meet some of the RAs. It was a lot of fun. I forgot to take pictures though!
Here are a few pictures.
We had to wash this quilt and we wrapped Lydda Grace in it when it came out of the dryer. She loved it! Who wouldn't!
Here is Finn leaving after I took out her pacifier. (Having the pacifier in was the only way he would lay in the bed until we got her there. As you can see from this video, he does not like it when she cries.)
Her name is pronounced Lid-duh (like Lydia but with an extra "d" instead of an "i"). Lydda is a town that we read about in Acts Chapter 9. Peter visited Lydda on his travels and all who lived there "turned to the LORD." It is our prayer that like the people in this town our daughter will turn to the Lord to love and serve Him. We're planning on calling her by both names, "Lydda Grace."
Below are some pictures of the past 15 hours... it is crazy to think that she isn't even one day old!
