I have been having blogging pains....always thinking of the next thing I want to blog about...I start to type, then cringe when I know I want to add pictures (is it just me or is downloading pictures a hassle and a half for anyone else?). So I still have much I want to post and share, but right now, it's Friday and I need to pack for a road trip with some dear sweet family friends.
It is very probable that I will blog about it....and possibly cringe a bit as I try to post all the photos I am sure to be taking. Here's hoping y'all have a lovely weekend and we all catch up when I get back. Happy trails.

"I prayed for this child, and the Lord has granted me what I have asked of Him."
1 Samuel 1:27
Today my "baby" is 4. Can I officially call her a baby?...I can still pick her up and cradle her in my arms. ?....No?... I guess not because when I do this she giggles and comments, "Momma, you are holding me like a baby!"....I ask, "Is that okay?"...she smiles and says, "O'course!". She is a miracle.

Then after we got married we started praying, trying and hoping for our third (my first biologically). For nearly two years and some testing (we both checked out fine) we kept hoping and hoping. I will be honest to say there were a lot of tears on my part...especially at a certain time of the month.

2. When it is time to nap or she is tired she tells us, "I think I need to chill now"

4. Lately when she says her prayers she adds, "I pray for my big red dog (we don't own one, she is praying for her fave cartoon character, Clifford), and a tractor", so for her party we made a Clifford cake, and yep, she got a tractor....look at her go (and grow).
