10 months old

My baby girl is 10 months old...and this is our last one. Rodney will not let me have another one. We did agree on 3 to begin with, but after this little one was born, I knew we needed a 4th little Bowerman. But we both came to a final agreement in November when the decision was made permanent (poor Rodney)!

Macy and Marah are 3 and a half years apart. We did want them closer, but the Lord thought differently. We had 2 miscarriages over that period of time and then this little girl was born. Great timing I would have to say. The Lord knew what He was doing. Joshua and Marah have been wonderful with helping and taking care of her. They are great at being big brother and big sister. We are so blessed. I could say it over and over a thousand times a day and it still wouldn't touch how blessed I feel. God is good!

My little munchkin is at a very fun age right now. She is a human vacuum cleaner picking up every little speck or crumb on the floor and putting it straight into her mouth. She crawls very well and will stand up as long as she is holding onto something. She loves the water. She has no choice. We swim so much with the other kids that she has to love it. She screams when we get her out of the bathtub. Joshua calls her "Mace" or "Mace-ums"! The child will eat ANYTHING! We still haven't found a food she doesn't like. She loves to be in motion and constantly moving. She loves to bounce and swing. She loves Baby Neptune. She will no longer wear a bow, she takes it out immediately and it goes into her mouth. She is NOT a good sleeper! Payback from having two that sleep wonderfully! She loves "if you're happy and you know it" and "how much is that doggy in the window" ! She loves puzzle pieces and books. She loves kisses and waving bye bye! She calls her pacifier her "pa pa"! She has 3 almost 4 teeth. She loves to make noises with her mouth. And so many other things!

In the beginning...

And now! She likes to stick her tongue out too!

Love this one! Aunt Brookie took it!
