I love EACH of my superstars (as I should, I am their mother), and up until about 5 minutes ago (literally, I’m not exaggerating), I was not looking forward to number 4. It’s not that I didn’t want the new baby. It’s more of the fact that I wasn’t ready for ANY baby, in general.
But I think a miracle happened because suddenly I’m looking SO forward to this little guy coming. It’s not that I’m waiting to be done being pregnant (although most days I am ready to be done); it’s more of the fact, I’m actually kind of excited for him.
Seriously, I just experienced a miracle in my heart.
Anyway, as I am now excitedly expecting this baby (even though as Chris put it, life is going to be INSANE. when I asked him if he didn’t think it already was insane, he replied, “no, it’s DIFFICULT now. It’s GOING to be INSANE!” to which I concur), I wanted to show off my current superstars and enjoy them with you for a bit.
Wordgirl: Seriously, probably one of the best oldest sisters EVER. She is so kindhearted and thoughtful. She is pretty good at communicating and plays so well with either her sister or her brother. She’s not even 5 and I can ask her to keep an eye on her brother to know where he is and she takes that task SO seriously! Being the firstborn, she obeys rules (for the most part) and enjoys being praised for her achievements and successes. She is SO beautiful.
Prayer for Wordgirl: that her heart will always stay soft for other people, but at the same time she will be able to guard her heart from getting too hurt.
Princess Pea is best displayed in this picture! She loves to play and laugh and have fun, but she doesn’t want all the attention on her. She wants to experience life without the pressure of anyone watching. She is funny and has a great sense of humor. Being NOT the firstborn, she is not prone to obeying the rules very well (and I need to email our “good friend,” Danny Silk, to figure out what we aren’t doing for her). But she is a cuddler and a hugger. In her words, she likes to give “sweet butterfly kisshes and sweet kisshes and sweet hugs.”
Prayer for Princess Pea: that she will know Jesus as her Savior and that it will transform her life.
