The Princess today!  Joy, gratitude, amazement, sadness, and even a bit of selfishness are fluttering in my heart today. The Princess has turned one!  No matter how hard I tried to stop the clock, she managed to wake up smiling on her first special day!  A bit of sadness pricks my heart, I no longer have a nursing infant, but a curious daughter who is anxious to experience what each day encounters rain or shine.  From cheerios to baby dolls or just simply dancing in her room with me, she makes me smile.  A year ago, God blessed us with The Princess.

 The Princess woke up to receive her very first birthday presents. Daddy is pushing the farm girl thing just a bit too far Mommy thinks.  “Brothers were exasperated that  I received a pink Daisy on my first birthday, considering Mommy has a NO GUN Policy!”  

“Thinking this could come in handy when my Bubbas’ are taking too long in the bathroom.”

“The Boys pushing me in my new wagon. After all, I’m the one with the gun!”
Not digging the birthday hat one bit!
Just to clarify, I still stand strong on the NO GUN policy( a whole different post someday).  It was so funny to see the boys faces though!

Behold, children are a heritage from the LORD, the fruit of the womb a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one’s youth. Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them! He shall not be put to shame when he speaks with his enemies in the gate.
(Psalms 127:3-5 ESV)
