I had a really great ...


Nana V / Wednesday, December 31 2008 02:50 AM

Hello Sugar, Grandfather and I are so lost without you around here. He said he really missed you today when he was playing the piano. We loved having you home for the holidays and hope you, Mommy and Daddy have a wonderful New Year! I'm glad to hear you like your green beans. Your momma and aunts all grew up loving their veggies so I had hoped you would too. Your mom liked asparagus the best. Probably because she could pick up the spears and nibble on them. We love you and are looking forward to seeing you in February. Please give your GMMM, GDaddy and Granny and Pop a big hug from us and thank them for sharing you with us.

Yesterday, Momma, Daddy, and I ...


Lita & Lito / Tuesday, December 23 2008 05:46 PM

Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Enjoy the holidays with all of the family. We'll be thinking of you and missing you. Hugs and kisses to all. Lita & Lito

Aunt Lori and Uncle KJ / Tuesday, December 23 2008 02:49 PM

Hope you have fun in Alabama, and have a wonderful first Christmas sweet girl. We Love You.

A Dickens of a Christmas!


Lita & Lito / Sunday, December 14 2008 12:58 AM

Wow!! Snow-just hard to believe. I think your Mom & Dad were having more fun than you were. The pics of Franklin make us miss the real spirit of X-mas, as we have a sunny sky and tons of traffic to celebrate with here. We love you all

Nana V / Saturday, December 13 2008 10:50 PM

Wow Honey, you have sure had a busy few days! GREAT, and very thankful news about your strong heart, and then your first snowfall. And now today, you got to tour downtown Franklin is a very special setting. Grandfather and I just love downtown Franklin and hope you grow up loving it too. We miss you and Mommy and Daddy, and can barely wait to see you all again. Much love, Nana V

Aunt Lori and Uncle KJ / Wednesday, December 17 2008 08:24 PM

Yeah! I knew you were above average. I am so happy to hear the good news. I know mommy and daddy are thrilled too. We Love You.

Rachel Hawkins / Friday, December 12 2008 02:22 PM

What wonderful news! And I'm so glad you got to be all snuggly by the fire with your Mommy yesterday. It was yucky out there!

GMM / Friday, December 12 2008 11:43 AM

Oh Etta, what a wonderful update to wake up to! We already knew you are such a strong little girl, and now the doctors know it too. I wonder if yesterday's snow was a celebration of your good health by all the angels watching over you.

We're Elves!!


Aunt Jessi / Thursday, December 11 2008 02:28 PM

OK that was the funniest thing I've seen in awhile. Dancing With The Stars, watch out!!! Wenzlers FTW!

Rolling Over


Lita & Lito / Thursday, December 11 2008 10:44 PM

Way to go!!! Can't wait for the video version of the rollover. Loved the photos of Opryland and it brought back wonderful memories of your Mom & Dad's wedding. Everyone looks so festive. Sending hugs & kisses!

Aunt Lori and Uncle KJ / Thursday, December 11 2008 04:30 AM

You go girl with your rolling. We are so proud of you, and tell mommy and daddy we love the Christmas pictures at Opryland Hotel. xoxo

My First Cold


Aunt Lori and Uncle KJ / Tuesday, December 9 2008 07:06 PM

I am so sorry baby girl that you have a cold. Unfortunately, it is part of growing up.You are a tough cookie, I know, and will be all peachy soon. Hope you, mommy, and daddy start getting more sleep.Happy 6month birthday sweetie. Love, Uncle KJ and Aunt Lori

Well, if you can believe ...


We made it home yesterday ...


Cassandra Smith / Friday, November 21 2008 01:18 PM

Glad you are home safe !!! Cannot wait to see the pictures !

The Beach: Take Two


Lita & Lito / Thursday, November 20 2008 02:03 AM

Tiffany & Etta- We hope you made it home safe & sound. It must have been a long day, but it was even longer here without you both. I spent quite a few moments looking at the videos and listening to Etta's giggles! We loved having you both here. Hugs to Keith for sharing you both!

I have pretty earrings now!


Daddy / Friday, November 14 2008 09:17 PM

Etta, your new earrings are adorable! You are so beautiful. I love you.

I'm in Panama!


Tia Juana / Wednesday, November 12 2008 12:39 AM

Tia and Tio (Uncle Ed) are jealous that we aren't there to share Corona with you all!!! We noticed it took Etta to get Lito down to the beach. Nothing like a grandaughter to get Grandpa up and out of the recliner! Love you little Etta.

Daddy / Monday, November 10 2008 11:31 PM

Miss you too :)

Five Months Old!


Donna / Sunday, November 9 2008 10:22 AM

Way to go Keith! Nice way to start the addiction, saying that after having a chocolate crazed moment (shhh I even sucked out the last drops out of the chocolate syrup out of bottle (no shame!). But I have to agree...5 months may be a bit early to be munching on a candy bar..jejeje...

Nana V / Sunday, November 2 2008 03:49 PM

It's hard for me do much more than smile about this Etta...your Nana V L-O-V-E-S chocolate and has a hard time imagining a world without it. But, mommy knows best!





Rachel Hawkins / Tuesday, October 28 2008 11:49 AM

Yay, Baby Etta! I voted with my Mommy and Daddy for the first time in 1984 (Mondale/Ferraro, woo-hoo! ;)It's a great thing to get an early start, ha ha!

My First Hike


Wow! It's been a while!


YAY!! Daddy's home again!! ...

One Year Ago Today.....


Great Aunt Diane / Tuesday, October 28 2008 02:14 PM

I never knew all the details to your announcement and I am smiling through my tears right now. I miss Sweetie so much, but I know he is looking down at Etta (his mom's namesake) and is as proud as can be of you Tiff.

Sherri / Tuesday, October 7 2008 08:14 PM

What a beautiful story. I'm sitting here with tears running down my cheeks.

Aunt Kimi / Tuesday, October 7 2008 02:30 AM

This story always makes me cry!! Im so lucky to have you in my life! I love you so very much!!

aunt Lori and Uncle KJ / Thursday, October 2 2008 01:26 PM

Happy 4 months Birthday sweet, baby girl. I think you are doing great. I am sorry about the shots, your cousins didn't like them at your age either. When you get older and bigger, it isn't so bad. Hope Mommy gets some sleep, Tell Daddy you will be big enough to canoe in the blink of an eye. Love you sweet girl.

Mommy thought she heard me ...


Nana V / Tuesday, September 30 2008 11:36 AM

Good Morning Sweet Baby Etta: I just read your Mom's posting of your newest trick -- laughter. My wish for you and Mommy and Daddy is a lifetime filled with laughter. Laugh on giggle box! Love, Nana V

Aunt Dena/Uncle Larry / Monday, September 29 2008 09:11 PM

Etta, you are just darling. I love to catch up on you with your videos. Very cute with you resting while Daddy rested. The exersaucer is great. I have 2 in the nursery at the church where I keep the babies and 1 year olds and they just love these. Too much to do and to look at. You will have a ball. The pictures were just so cute. Keep up the good work. Mommy and Daddy are doing great with you. One of these days when the gas gets better we will make a trip from Arkansas to see you guys and Grandmomma Mel and Grandad Rick. Love you all.

Yesterday morning, Mommy pulled my ...


Rachel Moore Hawkins / Saturday, September 27 2008 01:14 PM

Ooh, Baby Etta, my ExerSaucer was my FAVORITE toy when I was littler. And Mama and Daddy seemed to like it a lot, too, because it was the first thing I'd sit in for more than ten minutes at a time, ha ha! I'm sure you'll love yours just as much!

Nana V / Saturday, September 27 2008 01:29 AM

Yea ETTA! How fun it must have been today to take a ride in your ExerSaucer! Mommy (and Daddy) knows just how to make every day an interesting day. Not to worry little one, you will soon be able to take full advantage of your new entertainment center. You will have to show me how all your toys work next month when Pops and I come to visit you. We are counting the days. Much love Nana V

Because of the gas shortage ...


We haven't really been up ...


I've been meaning to post ...


Aunt Deanne / Friday, September 26 2008 04:12 PM

When Mommy and Daddy say it's okay, Aunt Deanne and Uncle Todd will take you for a jeep ride (with the top off) to the beach where we will build our own castles while Mommy and Daddy relax in the late afternoon sun.

uncle KJ and Aunt Lori / Tuesday, September 16 2008 03:29 AM

That is a beautiful comparison, it does not negate the dramatic change or loss, but it makes it clear that "Holland" is an lovely place with amazing things to see and experience. I think Etta May personifies that beautifully well. We love you sweet girl.

Daddy / Monday, September 15 2008 03:02 PM

Etta, when you are old enough and willing, you and I will float every lazy river in Tennessee. I love you.

This morning I had a ...


Hey everyone!


Auntie Kimi / Monday, September 8 2008 10:39 PM

Hey Sweet Baby Girl! I have donated a little bit of money to your team, but want you to know next time it will be more!!! I love you and am soooooo proud of you and your folks. I, myself, have become a large activist for children with special needs, and enjoy hearing how well you are doing!! Love you always!!!

lori and uncle kj / Monday, September 8 2008 12:29 PM

I just knew mommy and daddy would be very involved parents. I went to the site, and sent it on to some others.We wish we could walk with you, but we will be out of town, but I know you will enjoy it sweet girl. Love you.

Well, I did it!


Nana V / Monday, August 4 2008 09:57 PM

What a happy face you have Etta! How much fun it must be for you to be able to make Mommy and Daddy act silly just to see you smile. I know those smiles fill their hearts with sunshine. I have to admit though that as much as I love your smiles, I also like the photo of your little feet. You will be running around before we know it. I'm not sure whether I'm going to call you Sunshine or Peanut...both suit you. Much love, Nana V

kj and lori / Monday, August 4 2008 05:11 AM

Aren't those smiles the best? I am sure she looks like a little angel when she smiles, she is adorable. Hope to see her sometime soon. Love, Uncle KJ and Lori

Today we learned from TEIS ...


Great-Auntie Donna / Sunday, August 3 2008 08:56 AM

Hey Etta, Don't feel bad about getting your glacoma checked,Freddy, Zabrna and Kelsey are all gonna do the same thing on Monday and they don't like it any better than you! And another funny thing, Kelsey's tear ducts never close! She can't ever equalize on an airplane cuz when she holds her breath and blows hard (to equalize her ears) wind goes out of her tear ducts...funny eh? Oh that Kelsey. We are gonna have a family get together and I think your Lito and Lita are gonna bring their brag book about you and talk about their visit with you!!! Waiting for my turn at a squeeze!! Love ya Donna
