The World's Most Loved Baby

For real.

No wonder our little peanut is always smiles. Seriously, she slept for ten minutes in the car today and we arrived at our destination. My goal was to quietly put her in the Ergo and keep her asleep. Well...I open the door, with the lovely Miss Cheryl (an amazing mentor/mother of four grown kiddos) standing there, and Miss Ruthie opens her eyes and just starts beaming at Cheryl.

Yep. That is her. Pure joy and all sorts of friendliness.

Friends: thank you for loving our girl as though she were your own. You have helped give us the most delightful little girl ever.

Oh, and she said "Mama" last night. I squealed. I actually think she might know what it means, too because she only does it while reaching for me. Momma's wishful thinking.

Eek. Oh, and she sleeps now. Praise Jesus. No joke-she naps, too. Praise Him, again.  

God-you are good. Thank you for making me realize I have SOOOO much to learn and I am seriously lacking in patience, stamina, perseverance, etc.  Oh, and thanks for showering me in grace. As always.

And this crew from where I used to live-you lift my soul.   Bachelorette Pad-you were/are/will always be a life changer.
