Easy to love

Written by Shannon Leigh
When Matt and I found out we were pregnant I was a little worried about how I was going to love this little offspring of mine.
We got pregnant a little faster than I expected and then I entered that icky morning sickness stage for the first 12 weeks.
I didn't love being pregnant so I worried that I would somehow resent this child for taking away my body and my life for 9 months.

But then she arrived.
I've never been so in love in all my life.
It was instantaneous love.
But as she grows she is making it really easy to love her.
She's laid back and easy going and beyond expressive.

Oh how I praise the Lord for this precious gift he has given me.
I am reminded of Mary's song in Luke 1:46-55
And Mary said,
“My soul magnifies the Lord,
and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior,
for he has looked on the humble estate of his servant.
For behold, from now on all generations will call me blessed;
for he who is mighty has done great things for me,
and holy is his name.
And his mercy is for those who fear him
from generation to generation.
He has shown strength with his arm;
he has scattered the proud in the thoughts of their hearts;
he has brought down the mighty from their thrones
and exalted those of humble estate;
he has filled the hungry with good things,
and the rich he has sent away empty.
He has helped his servant Israel,
in remembrance of his mercy,
as he spoke to our fathers,
to Abraham and to his offspring forever.”

Don't get me wrong there are bad days, there are long days, there are days that I want to pull my hair out but for the most part, I enjoy her immensley.

Thanks for being so wonderful miss Ruby Evangeline.
And praise the Lord for being so merciful.
Looking forward to spending the next 18 years together.

Also Ruby has added a few more words to her vocabulary.
She is adding words left and right.

All done
Where are you?

She is also started to take consecutive steps! Woo hoo!
