Those who plant in tears will harvest SHOUTS OF JOY. They weep as they plant their seed, but they sing as they return with the HARVEST.

Happy Birthday

My baby is now 2. I can't believe that she is already two years old. These past two years have just flown by. I also can't believe in a few months she will no longer be the baby.

Kharis has been such a joy to our family. From the day she was born we have loved her and have had many laughs with her. Her first day of life was a glorious day and every day since then we have been blessed by her. The children all welcomed her with open arms and I remember the transition being very smooth. We had one little problem and that was one we had no control over. The 4th child was upset it was not a boy. She said, "I told you guys I wanted a brother not a sister." But after a few hours she was happy with her new little sis. Who couldn't be she was just like all the others.

Over the past two years it has been such a joy watching her reach her milestones: rolling over, crawling, sitting up, walking, talking( she has a large vocabulary for a two year old.)

I just thank the Lord everyday for all my little girls and I thank you Lord for our next little bundle who will be here with us very soon.

Happy Birthday Kharis, Mommy loves you.

Ali has been WAITING for this post. She is much relieved (insert wiping of the brow here). I miss all you guys, but I miss holding that [not so] little bundle! I hope I'm blessed enough to be able to hold the new one!!!
