My Loves

Thursday, April 14, 2011

I really love the family that God has blessed me with. I do not deserve the wonderful family that He chose to give me. My Husband is awesome. I have seen so much growth in his life lately, it has been amazing to watch! He loves his little girls so much. I love watching his face light up when Claire gives him a smile. I love watching him crawl on the ground to play with Kenley. I even love watching him throw my little girl up in the air because I know that he would do anything to protect her. I love watching him lead music for our church, I know that when he sings those words he truly means them and truly desires to worship God. I am so proud to be his wife.
When I was pregnant with Claire, I couldn't imagine loving another child as much as I loved Kenley. I just didn't see how that would work. Now I know. I love her with all that I am and yet I still have just as much love for Kenley. Isn't it amazing that God allows us that?! Brian bonded with Kenley right away when she was born but it took me much longer to bond with her. It was the opposite with Claire, even though she was in an incubator and away from me for the beginning of her life, I instantly knew that she was mine and I was hers. She is the sweetest most cuddly baby and I love being her Mommy.
(Here she is looking up at her Dada)
She has even slept through the night 4 out of the past 5 nights! WoooHooo!
Kenley girl Kenley girl. This little girl is BURSTING with personality. Often times I will catch her doing something silly and staring at Brian waiting for him to laugh at her. She is still the busiest person that I have ever met. She isn't even still in her sleep she just rolls around the whole night! She loves to go walking around outside. I can't wait until this summer when she can run around the yard and play in the kiddie pool! I love that she is constantly trying to bring her sister toys and hats and burp cloths and pacis and etc etc etc. She loves to share her toys and food with her cousins, James and Nate too. She can even say Nate now! Her face lights up when she sees her grandparents! I can't even express just how much I love this little girl! I can't wait to see what God has in store for her!
Today I am feeling immensely blessed.

I hope you know that you are also a blessing to all who know you. While we have not spent as much time together in recent years, through your blog posts and what I have heard from others, God has done a miraculous work in you! You are a super mom because of the sacrifices you make for your family, your desire to love Christ more each day, and how you strive to be a better wife and mother in all that you do. As your friend I just wanted you to know that I am so proud of you and that I think you are an amazing woman. Kenley and Claire have been given a gift, having you and Brian to love them and bring them up in the Lord is amazing!
