I'm addicted to sour candies. And my poor tongue suffers because of it.
Just a little getting to know me note.

You guys, I have a big girl now. I have a two year old. She's HUGE. She's gained at least 40lbs over the past week and has grown several inches. The truth of it is, she's only gained 4lbs the past year and has grown several inches. But in my eyes- she's practically a teenager.
Thursday, August 30, 2007 Adeline turned two. We went to Chuck E. Cheese's for a while with friends and I think they had a blast. She reminded me of myself on my 21st birthday, passing out instantly when we strapped her into her seat. (I kid, I kid).
She's just the sweetest, most beautiful little girl in the world. I look into her eyes and I see all these possibilities. And I see all these things God can do with her life. And I pray so hard that she will learn life the easy way. That she won't make the same mistakes that I've made. That's she'll listen to James & I. That's she'll love us despite our flaws on mistakes we've made. I have so many hopes and dreams for this little girl. But my main hope is that she'll love God with all her heart and she'll want to make Him happy.

It's absolutely overwhelming, the feelings a mom has for her daughter. I don't know if anyone can put it into words. You just don't truly know until you're holding this little person in your arms. And the most amazing thing is- God loves us like that! God loves us MORE than we could possibly love our children. And that is where the pure joy of being God's child comes in for me.
I'm honored, I'm unworthy for a Father to love me like He does. I'm unclean, I'm dirty, but He will always be there to wash me clean. It's amazing.

And now... a picture to show you what a blessed mommy I am!
(And to think - God is blessing me all over again with another little girl!)
