She marches to the beat of her own drum.

When you have a child ...


with the determination of a bull ...


there is not much success in telling her not to do something.


No matter the predicament she is bound to find herself in.


She marches to the beat of her own drum ...


and ain't nobody gonna change that.


For she is fearfully fearlessly and wonderfully made ...


and we wouldn't have it any other way.



  1. I can see so many similarities between Payton and Evie. Even that stinky face that they make when they dont get what they want. Hilarious! I will be very lucky and blessed if indeed my Evie grows up to be as amazing as Payton :)

  2. Harper is the same way-grrr-but you gotta love a girl who knows what she wants!

  3. i have a 4 year old boy who has that same determination...:o)

  4. I have tears. I know I've seen your comments before but I really came to look today. And I just feel so privileged to be part of this family. What an amazing, beautiful family you are. Bethany, your photos are beautiful and your heart...well that's even better.
    Are you in Michigan?

  5. Hi Kelle :) ... privileged you are! :) No bias here, right? LOL. We actually are in Virginia, but we meander to FL fairly often since my dad lives in Orlando. Maybe someday we can meet ... I'd love to cuddle little Nella!! We will be down there in July next for the national DS convention at Disney ...

  6. What a beautiful girl. And her determination makes her even more beautiful! :)

  7. Hi,
    I just found you and I'm so glad I did. You have such a beautiful family and it sounds like you all are very close. My heart goes out to you because I know how difficult it can be when anyone in the family has medical challenges of any kind. But I know that Heavenly Father loves you very much because He placed one of His most special children with you. And from where I'm sitting, it sure seems as if you are the perfect family for her to be with.
