You are growing up so fast sweet girl. Its been a blessing to watch your little spirit grow. You make everyone smile. You like to wiggle and giggle and dance. Its been almost 2 years since your life began and almost 1 year since life began for us as a family of 3.

You love going to school and playing with your friends. Miss Tracy loves you and says you are the only one who hasn't been in the 'red chair' all year. Your friends love you and Miss Tracy says you have taught them kindness. Before you could walk, your friends would bring you toys and would take care of you. Thinking about that makes me smile.

You are walking like such a big girl. One day you will read this and know that your mommy and daddy have always believed in you. You have such sweet, little dainty feet. Speaking of your feet, they are one of many things that God made special about you. But as you grow up, i want you to know that you are not defined by your feet or your sweet fingers..You will be defined by whats in your heart. but i also know that God will use your hands and feet to serve him and to serve others.

You have been sick a lot this month. you had lots of yuckies. but along with the sickness, you
bring smiles. One of my favorite mommy moments happened when you were sick. last week, you couldn't sleep and daddy was sick, so mommy stayed up. We rocked, we sang every praise song we could remember and we prayed. Your breathing was fast, you had a fever and you were just whimpering. So we sang for what seemed hours. You listened to me pray and early in the morning you just opened your eyes, smiled and went back to sleep. Your next few words included God, Jesus and I love to hear you say Bible. I pray that you keep these words close to your heart for the rest of your life.

LynnMarie, be confident and know that you, our sweet precious miracle, are fearfully and wonderfully made.

LynnMarie went to a birthday party

LynnMarie spent Sat afternoon at Lennah and Delilahs birthday party. It was at a big bouncy place in Hiram (forgot the name but much bigger than Monkey Joe's or whatever, it had something to do with kangaroos.) There was a special place for the little kids and she loved it..Loved to bounce. Now, I apologize for not taking pics of the birthday girls but we were so happy to meet some new friends and got to visit Meron and Sheridan too. LynnMarie enjoyed practicing her new walking skills and got a serious case of giggles. We jumped, bounced and LynnMarie figured out to climb up the bouncy slide, slide down and then walk back around. It was a fun time and were so glad to have gone. Thank you so much for having us ladies!!!
It wiped her out as well. Dozed on and off on the way home and still took a great nap when we got home! Looking forward to going for playtime soon!
