A breath

Well after having a lot of company and time spend with family, we are resting now. We are looking forward to the next time we see them all. We are spending this Memorial day weekend resting and getting some house work done. I would like to give you all on Lydia so that you to can pray for us during this time. Lydia has struggled with developing a little with rolling over and crawling and pulling herself up and she can't pull herself to a sitting position. We are going to see a physical therapist and they will evaluate her and then the doctor will take steps from there. So we are praying that she is just being stubborn. Because we all can be pretty stubborn at times. But she is healthy and happy other than that. We are blessed with how God is teaching us so many things especially how precious she is to God. SO I will keep you updated.

Lydia's very first birthday

Happy Birthday Lydia here are some highlights from her birthday party. So I hope you enjoy the pictures. I am going to steal Paulina's idea and tell you some of Lydia's things she enjoys. She loves to dance. She loves any type of music. Her favorite toy is a stand piano/banjo/drums. Her Nana and Pa, and Aunt Yvette and Uncle Paul and the A team came and so did Mimi. SO she had quite the group for her party. I am so surprised that this last year has gone so quickly. I am praying this year we will be able to instill in her more of God's goodness to us. Enjoy the pictures.

Sleepless nights

Many of you are probably saying oh no Lydia has been up during the night. Well it isn't her this time it is me. For some reason I haven't had good nights sleep in a little over a week now. I am not sure why, but I have been using this time to think and to pray. I have been struggling with a couple of things with Lydia lately. She for some reason just is real fussy. She won't play by herself so lately I had to just walk away from her and listen to her cry. So if anyone has any advice for me as to take this away from her that would be great. I need helpful other mother advice. She still won't go to nursery either. I am not sure what to do. The workers keep telling me how she just cries and cries. I do pack and play time and that is going real well. She plays and sometimes falls asleep which is funny. If anyone has advice for me on that, that would be great too. I have really been convicted to pray and never stop praying for her, which is great but I sometimes become overwhelmed that God might use her not being a child of the King to teach me a lesson. So I am praying not. Wow what a different post for me. I would love feed back from any of you moms that have tried and gone through these things it would help so greatly.
