A few to tide you over...

Haven't taken many pictures lately...we've been so busy that sometimes I forget to get the camera out and capture these precious moments! Lucy is growing beautifully and is a talking maniac. Seriously....she is learning a new word almost every day, and easily putting two words together for little mini sentences. Her favorite new phrase is "My ___". My mama, my dog, my......whatever. Unfortunately the dreaded M-I-N-E has reared its ugly head a few times as well, but I'm quick to punish for that nasty word, so she rarely says it. We've also been working on the alphabet a lot recently and she knows about 10 letters. Some of them she can't say the actual letter so she says the sound. Like for "L", she says, "lalala", and "M" she says "mmmm". In the grocery store the other day we were in the dairy section and she saw the big DAIRY letters above us and she pointed and said "Y!!" I'm amazed at how fast she learns.

In other news, we have decided to undergo some testing to see why I lost two babies in a row, so continue to keep us in your prayers as we encounter this long and unexpected journey. Here are a few pictures of Lucy to tide you over until I get to spend some more time behind my camera.

I brought this booster seat and Sesame Street DVD home from a consignment sale....Lucy was excited about them both, as you can see.

She is such a little toddler now! Where did my baby go?

Enjoying one of our beautiful Spring days on the back patio with a little sidewalk chalk and a picnic lunch.

Crazy Girl

It's hard to be sad when you see this sweetness.....

In Christ alone my hope is found,
He is my light, my strength, my song;
this Cornerstone, this solid Ground,
firm through the fiercest drought and storm.
What heights of love, what depths of peace,
when fears are stilled, when strivings cease!
My Comforter, my All in All,
here in the love of Christ I stand.

In Christ alone! who took on flesh
Fulness of God in helpless babe!
This gift of love and righteousness
Scorned by the ones he came to save:
Till on that cross as Jesus died,
The wrath of God was satisfied -
For every sin on Him was laid;
Here in the death of Christ I live.

There in the ground His body lay
Light of the world by darkness slain:
Then bursting forth in glorious Day
Up from the grave he rose again!
And as He stands in victory
Sin's curse has lost its grip on me,
For I am His and He is mine -
Bought with the precious blood of Christ.

No guilt in life, no fear in death,
This is the power of Christ in me;
From life's first cry to final breath.
Jesus commands my destiny.
No power of hell, no scheme of man,
Can ever pluck me from His hand;
Till He returns or calls me home,
Here in the power of Christ I'll stand.

This is all I can pray right now....all I can fill my mind with. We began to lose another baby yesterday. We are broken. Please keep us in your prayers.
