My Girls

I absolutely LOVE being a mom. There was a time when I didn't know if I'd ever be one, and I thank God that he heard my cry and blessed me with 3 beautiful, healthy daughters. I am grateful that these precious girls call me "Mom."

Avery-I love her creativity. She can spend hours with some paper, scissors, glue and crayons. She's a true artist.

I love that no matter what I make for supper, she'll love what I make for dessert.

She is her mother's daughter, warts and all. I think I love her most for that.

McKenna-I love that she sucks her thumb and has to have hair in her fingers to mess with. This is usually red hair from her beloved mermaid doll.
I love that she comes in our room every morning and asks for hot milk.
I love that she loves her sisters like crazy.

Presley-I love that, for this period in time, I'm her favorite!
I love it when I'm nursing her, and she stops eating so she can smile at me. We just gaze in each others eyes. I absolutely love those moments.
I love to watch her soothe herself by sucking her thumb.

Your turn. What is one thing you love about your kid(s)? If you don't have kids, think pets, neices, nephews, friends, etc...

I love Reese because she is very determined and passionate about the things she wants. Her name means "passionate." This is very unlike me and our personalities are quite different. I'm a bit lazy and don't care to work too hard to get what I want, but she on the other hand will do whatever she can to get that door open, drink daddy's coke from a straw, or just run down the hallway at my work. I love her big brown eyes and chubby cheeks and her determination.

So how do I say I love my girls? I do, I do, I do, I do!
I love that Michelle has grown into such a caring, unselfish, loving person and Mom. She is a great Mom and makes me proud to call her my daughter.
I love that Marla is a caring, unselfish, loving person and Mom. She also makes me proud to call her my daughter.
I love that God allowed them both to allow me to be a Grandma. There was a time when I didn't know if that would ever happen. It didn't happen without lots of tears and heartache, but He is faithful and in His time He allowed it.

This is a little late but...

Joseph - I love that he insists on being called Joseph even though we had called him Joey from birth. I love that he still loves to cuddle. I love that he is wicked smart and wants to be a scientist.

Elizabeth - I love that she is a tiny princess who loves other princesses. I love her big heart and her nurturing spirit. I love that she thinks everything is magical. I love that at age 5, she loves and worships Jesus more than anyone I've ever known.
