Shaky Earrings and ABCs

My baby girl is growing up so fast. She had been asking her Tata for "shaky earrings" for about a month now. Today she got some from Nana and Tata and she was one happy little girl. She kept shaking her head and showing everyone at church that would look. I thought it was especially cute when she kept showing her friend Logan. He didn't care about them one bit, but she sure was proud. Here she is showing them off mid "shake".

As if getting big girl earrings isn't enough growing up for one day, she decided tonight she would recite the ABCs for us. I didn't even know she could do this.
I have loved watching Kadynce go from a little baby, to a toddler, to a sweet little girl with a personality of her own. She loves to play anything pretend. Her baby dolls are her favorite, but she also loves her party kitchen, trains, and horses.

Thank you Lord for giving us this blessing and entrusting us to raise her to be a disciple for you.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year! Ok, ok maybe I'm a little (or a lot) late, but I hope everyone is having a great and very blessed 2012 so far. While talking with a very sweet and wise friend the other day I started having a pity party. I couldn't help but talk about how bad 2011 had been. Even after Isaac was born and went to be with Jesus it felt like I just couldn't pick myself or our family up. Just as I began to feel some sort of emotional strength something would happen and knock me flat on my face again. This is when I was gently reminded by my friend that I had a very BLESSED year. Hard, definitely, but blessed without a doubt. God is good and He never left my side even when I wasn't very happy with him (no I'm not perfect).

So here's to a new year and a new perspective. It may be a month late, but it's the thought that counts right?
