Before you had a name, or opened up your eyes
or anyone could recognize your face,
You were being formed, so delicate in size
secluded in God's safe and hidden place.

With your little tiny hands,
and your little tiny feet,
and your little eyes that shimmer like a pearl.
He breathed in you a song,
and to make it all complete
He brought the masterpiece into the world.

With Pastor John at the Baby Dedication

Great is the Lord and most worthy of praise: his greatness no one can fathom. One generation will commend your works to another; they will tell of your mighty acts. ~Psalm 145:3-4

the photo shoot started off well and then she started to get distracted....

Happy half birthday Addie!

embracing the mohawk

This may (and hopefully) be the only time that Addie has a mohawk, so we are embracing this new style of hers. I especially love when it shows up in her shadow as seen in picture 2!

Happy Mother's Day

years of dreaming
9 months of pregnancy
13 hours of labor
countless hours of lost sleep
many many diapers
laundry galore

but worth it all when I catch one single glimpse of those big brown eyes

Thank you Lord for the wonderful baby you have blessed me with.
