On Our Toes

This girl is the funniest, sweetest, silliest little thing ever! We are thoroughly enjoying her budding personality- she is stubborn and silly, clingy and creative, feisty and flirty, and much more adventurous than I ever imagined. Faith Clare loves to dance and goes crazy with the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse "hotdog" song. She adores her big brother and follows him all over the house trying to play airplanes and cars or anything that will grab his attention. She LOVES her babies, snuggling with them, giving them bottles and paci's and quite honestly we can't even get out of the baby aisle in Target without some major protesting. She is a big-time climber and its fun to see the pure delight on her face when she has accomplished scaling something, although often scary for us! Amongst all the fun she has also provided us with many laughs these past several weeks. She keeps us on our toes and laughing and we wouldn't have it any other way!

"He will yet fill your mouth with laughter and your lips with shouts of joy."- Job 8:21

Deacon's mind is working... which means God is definitely working. Here are just a few of the questions that Deacon asked me tonight as I laid with him in bed.

"Why do we have to wait for 'a long, long time ago' before we go to Heaven?"
"When Jesus died on the cross, did they glue him on?"
"How will we get our house to Heaven? Are we going to fly it there?"

"Is God an angel? Why does He have wings?"

"Was Jesus an angel when he came here?"
"Will Maddox still be a baby when we get to Heaven?"

Oh my goodness! We had an awesome discussion about God having a purpose for us here, about Jesus dying on Calvary, about our own room in God's mansion, about God and angels, about Jesus being born a boy just like him, and about what Maddox might be like in Heaven. AMAZING!

9 Days

Welcome to our new niece Julianne, born just 9 days ago! She is absolutely precious and although we are so in love with her, her parents are absolutely over the moon. In the hospital I just loved glancing over at them to see the pure joy, love and excitement in their eyes... I mean they couldn't stop staring at her. Absolutely precious!

So welcome Julianne Lynn! You are so loved and we can't wait for you to grow up with Deacon and Faith Clare... for them to teach you wonderful things (and probably some not-so-wonderful things) and for all of you to share the sweet love of Jesus. You are stunning, baby girl!
