My Favorite Nine...

You are a diva with an attitude that is too cute for words. You have a big personality with big blue eyes to back it up.

You are so animated and you love to make silly faces; especially at mama. You love to stick out your tongue and make funny noises, too. Everywhere we go, you know the tricks you can show off that will charm pretty much anyone. You have the ability to captivate every audience.
You are scooting around so fast and rolling all over the place. Not to mention that you are pulling up on everything, even the bathtub while you are in it!! You are so active and independent, sometimes I don't even recognize you at all! But, I quickly remember when I walk out of the room for only a minute and I hear your over-dramatic baby cry. This is my simple reminder that you still need your mama. Almost instinctively; I come in, scoop you up, and you grab onto my neck. I look at your sweet baby face and see your three-toothed smile, with no real tears in your baby blues. I hate to admit it, but I just love that you need me that much.
You are growing into this strong-willed, funny, tender-hearted, sweet little girl. You have your own likes and dislikes. You have your own opinion and you aren't afraid to share it with others:). I will try my best to let you grow into the person you want to become, with the unique talents God has given you. Daddy says he is proud of the beautiful personality you have started showing us more and more everyday. We couldn't ask for more than being your Mommy and Daddy. The nine months of having you on this Earth have been my favorite.
Love you more,

Words for my now...

One word I would definitely use to describe this hectic season in my life right now. Example #1: I just got my Christmas tree down, and ladies and gentlemen, its January 20th. Example #2: Taking a shower seems like a luxury and make-up has been on the back burner for a few weeks now. Must I go on?

This precious baby girl who is growing so fast in front of me. Some days I hardly even recognize her because she is changing so quickly and growing so big. I don't want to miss anything...not one thing. I want to soak her in, and never forget even a second.

I can't wrap my mind around it. People who pour into others' lives without asking anything in return. People who will give, talk, and love the second they meet you; as if they have known you all their lives. There are two who did that for us, and it was enough. Just enough for them to be Jesus with skin on in that very moment.

God has seriously shown up in a big way in this department. Knowing that I am truly loved by Him has been very apparent lately. God has given me a place of solace and renewal in this season of change, growth, and chaos. Even on the bad days, it doesn't get any better than that.
