Moriah is growing and doing so well. She is nearly 7-months old now. We took her swimming at our local gym. She loves the water so much.
She makes us laugh and keeps us busy.

Six Months Old
Moriah is sitting in her big girl chair now at the table. For lunch she at peas for the first time. Our time in Virginia went really well and we are glad to be at home with Moriah again.

Fun in the snowy weather

Moriah is enjoying her first snow/sleet/ice storm. We are here at Pops and Gramsey's house in Southern Oklahoma. We have to fly to Richmond Virgina for an interview with the International Mission Board on Tuesday, so Moriah will stay with her grandparents. We pray that the roads will be okay for us to make our flight.
Moriah ate her first vegetable, (squash). Next week maybe she will try something else. Also she has enjoyed being at Pops and Gramsey's and playing in the ExerSaucer.

Moriah is doing great! She loves this new jumpy thing that hangs from the door frame. Yesterday, she went to the doctor for her six-month check-up. She now is now 16lbs 12oz and 26.5" tall.

This morning we woke up early to drive down to down-town Fort Worth to be at the readoption of Moriah. This process allowed us to receive a Texas birth certificate and to change her birth name of Jennifer to Moriah Joy Estefania Ellis. We are so proud of our girl and blessed that everything is finally complete as far as the adoption goes.
Now, we look forward to raising our daughter and watching her grow.

Happy New Year!!!
Here is our first family picture! Moriah really does not like to smile for the camera. She laughs and smiles any other time, but when you put a camera on her she gets so serious. But, we finally got some good ones!
Yesterday, we got Moriah a jumpy-thingy that hangs from the door frame. She loves it sooooo much. She enterains us all the time and is such a happy baby. On Saturday she turns six-months old. It is hard to belive that she has been with us for nearly a month...
Her great-grandma Ellis made her the white sweater, hat, and blanket, (in the picture below).
