Little Mama Is 6 Years Old

Little Mama celebrated her 6th birthday last month. I can't get over how quickly time has flown by. My baby is growing up so fast.

We had a birthday party for her and it was so much fun. The highlight of the night was the "treasure hunt". There were 6 hidden clues that they had to find in order to get to the "treasure". The hunt started in the house and it quickly proceeded to the front yard, then the back yard ,then around the house and back inside again where they were able to solve the last clue and discover the hidden "treasure".

The Loot

We all had so much fun that night.
I get a little emotional when I think about my little girl growing up. I would love to keep her this small forever. I love this little girl so much.

She is my 2nd born. I found out that I was pregnant with my 2nd when my 1st was only 10 months old. You can imagine the shock that I was in. At that time I was still exclusively nursing Little Man and I wasn't so sure that I would be able to handle 2 babies at once. But God knew what He was doing. Nine months later to my surprise I gave birth to a beautiful 9 pound 5 ounce little girl. She was so special. My 1st girl. Her birth helped me to realize that I really am capable of doing great things.
She was such a good baby. Her big brother had a hard time sharing me with her and she was so patient with him. I was able to nurse the both of them in the beginning and when Lil Man weaned off it was just me and her until she was 26 months old.

There is definitely something very special about the relationship between a mother a her 1st daughter. Little mama and I are very tight. We have so many things in common. Our relationship right now is what I wished I had with my own mother growing up. I am so blessed by her presence each day.

I pray that the Lord will continue to use her to show me his love and mercy. I pray that she will grow in her faith and become a wonderful women in Christ.

She is my mini me, my proof that I am favored by God. She is my first baby girl. And I just love her to pieces.


We love you very much
