Today marks the day of Naomi's first birthday as well as the day she started to walk! Over the past two weeks or so we have really seen Naomi's personality coming out more than ever! She loves interacting with everyone- friends and stranger alike, her squeals of joy have gotten a bit louder, and her never-ending smile seems to be glued to her face. She weighs 21 pounds and is 31 inches tall, with 8 teeth. We love our little girl so much!
Likes: When all the attention is on you, waving, smiling, and blowing kisses at everyone. Being inside your toy box, the cubbard, or the shower, storytime at the library

Dislikes: Sitting in the shopping cart- the buckle's got nothing on you- you squirm out, stand up and mom just holds you by the waist, your car seat has become the worst thing ever

You Can: Now walk after a few weeks of taking single, individual steps by yourself, sign for "more", and "all done", say "Mom", "Dad", "up", and "wow", follow several commands without us showing you, but simply telling you.
We'll Never Forget: Your very special pumpkin and roses first birthday party, seeing how much you understand now, your first trip to Disney World, your first steps.

Just a couple more days until our little pumpkin turns ONE. Yesterday was such a special day with family and friends who have been involved in Naomi's first year of life! We are so grateful for all who love her so well! The weather even surprised us with a fittingly cool, fall day. Naomi was the perfect little ham, loving all the attention and being silly, smiling, and showing off at all the right moments haha. We love you Naomi Rose and are so glad you had so much fun! Thank you everyone who passed pictures along so we can share with Naomi the special day this was for years to come! #naomi_🌹 #firstbirthday
Stay tuned for the reenactment in several years to come😜 #cabreracousins

One day In 2012 before Sam and I even considered dating, but a couple years after knowing each other, we were sitting and talking on the back patio of the cafeteria at the Honor Academy, in Texas. We were talking about several things and at one point I remember Sam sharing with me Malachi 3:16, "A book of remembrance was written concerning those who feared the Lord and honored his name." He then looked up and enthusiastically said to me, "Bethany, you're going to be in that book of remembrance!" I was taken aback but felt empowered as the rest of our conversation revolved around this passage and Sam encouraged me in my vocation and calling as a Christian. I remember mid-conversation, thinking to myself, "man I hope my husband encourages me like this!" I definitely wasn't thinking Sam was "the one" in that moment. But the way he spoke to me reflected exactly what I expected and hoped for that man to be. I thought to myself of the verse, Ephesians 5:25-26, "Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her to make her holy cleansing her by the washing of water through the word." Sam has always pointed me towards God and washed me with the word of God. He has never prioritized my happiness, but rather my holiness. I've learned that true happiness does not come from marriage, but rather God, the giver of marriage. As I leave my marriage in God's hands, and allow Him to mold and refine me, I believe I've experienced true happiness that is deeper than anything this world can offer me. Sam, I honor you, and truly feel privileged to be partnered with you in our earthly journey. This has been the best year yet, and we've helped each other become the best version of ourselves! I can honestly say I'm happier than I have ever been, but it's come from the joy that's come out of enduring the fire of refinement. I am thrilled for all that is to come! Happy Anniversary, my love! ❤️ #thecabreraera

We've been enjoying our Labor Day weekend over here in Maryland, feeling the onset of fall, and basically in denial that our baby girl is 11 MONTHS! 😱

Likes: Always holding something in your hand(s), clementines seem to be your favorite food, pillows and blankets have started to be a fascination this month, being outside, making your own music, dancing to even the slightest beat you hear- always dancing!
Dislikes: This whole teething thing that keeps happening (waiting for number 7 and 8 to cut through), things being taken from you, whenever it's time to come inside or the front door gets shut before you can get out, being away from Mom and Dad.
You Can: Climb up, over, and on everything, "moo", blow kisses, stand all by yourself, help pull you arms and legs through when getting dressed (sometimes haha). We'll Never Forget: All your wonder on our trip to NYC, your cute little laugh-cry you do, our day trip to Atlantic City and climbing up a lighthouse together as a family, how brave you are- you're always trying to stand a couple seconds longer, your dancing all the time, how you look around and smile whenever you hear clapping and praise- you always assume it's in honor of you. ❤️ #naomi_🌹

We've been having the sweetest summer with our little water baby! Everything is better with this little girl in tow (except maybe grocery shopping and eating at restaurants 😜) Likes: Playing at the beach and in your little pool, looking at books on your own- but not when we try to read to you, being in the bathroom and putting a handful of q-tips in your mouth, going in the fridge and cubbards, laughing and smiling just because- you're the happiest little girl, eating popsicles with daddy, interacting with people.

Dislikes: Not having full access to everything in the house, being put in your car seat especially on these hot summer days, being in your car seat when the car is not moving.
You Can: Cruise along furniture, give high fives, climb the stairs, say "dada" and "mahmmma" (mama) discriminately.

We'll Never Forget: Your first road trip, to Virginia Beach, your first set of tan lines, the "tunnel vision" you get when you want something, first time riding in your bike carrier.

9 months. You've been "out" for as long as you were "in" and I wouldn't trade anything for knowing you, sweetheart.
Likes: Playing with your little animal toys, shaking loud rattles, being mommy's shadow, any food- there doesn't seem to be anything you don't like now, clicking your tongue and smacking your lips

Dislikes: Drinking anything but breastmilk and sometimes water, drinking from a sippy cup, giving mom and dad your undivided attention, getting your face wiped

You Can: Clap your hands, "dance" when you hear music, give open mouth kisses, swat away and shake your head "no" when you don't want something, "come" on command

We'll Never Forget: Your first time in a moon bounce, how you want us to hold you but only to put you down, first time on a horse (for like 4 seconds with mom!), you being sick with roseola, braving your first time seeing fireworks, how STRONG you are, your pigtails, that cute, toothy smile that's coming in- you have six teeth!
There's no one sweeter baby, we love you! ❤️ 🇺🇸 #naomi_🌹

Since I was pregnant, Sam has always said how he wants to make a record of how many times he kisses his little girl. When Naomi was born, one of the first questions Sam asked the nurses was if it was okay if he kisses his little girl on the lips. Their response was something along the lines of, "well we aren't going to tell you not to." Haha we've lost count of how many kisses it's been, but I feel incredibly blessed knowing my daughter will grow up never being short of love, affection, strength, provision, and godly influence from her father. Happy first Father's Day, honey! I love parenting with you!

Happy Father's Day to my incredible dad! I keep trying to find the words, but all I have is overwhelming gratitude! Dad, you've truly given all of yourself to be the best dad possible and that doesn't go unnoticed. Seeing you be an incredible grandfather to Naomi makes me imagine how you were with me when I was little and it just melts my heart as I think about how well you loved and nurtured me (and still do)!I'm glad for these pictures that serve where memories cannot. I have truly always adored being your daughter and could not dream of a better father!

A little bigger and even sweeter! I can't believe my baby is 8 months!
Likes: Feeding yourself, carrots, pears, broccoli, green beans, going over to your toy box and looking inside and touching your toys (you haven't figured out how to pull them out yet :-) ), interacting with people, exploring anything that's new to you.

Dislikes: Avocado, eggs, when you miss your mouth trying to feed yourself, eating for too long-you get distracted and just want to keep playing.

You Can: Drink from a straw, mimic some of our actions and noises, pick up any little thing with your pincer grasp.

We'll Never Forget: First Mother's Day spoiling mommy, your sleep regression- waking up almost every night this month (what happened to you being my awesome sleeper!?), your attempts to "talk" and communicate with us more, when you gave a nice, big slap to Daddy's face, all the special people that you've met this month: Claudia and Ricky and your "cousins" from El Salvador, the Pruett's, and baby Hazel-- you were so intrigued by a newborn baby!
