Little Bit has turned one year old.
My what a year this has been.
She is the smiliest baby and continues to bring joy to our house.
Here she is, practicing her newest sensation...smelling.
We call it "sniffy-sniffy."
You can hear Bright Girl egging her on..."Do the sniffy-sniffy! Do the sniffy-sniffy!"
I love the way she scrunches up her face and bewitches us with her little nose twitching like a cuddly bunny.
This year, we had a dual Halloween/Birthday Bash and everyone dressed up:
Mulan and Scarlet O'Hara,
Lieutenant Mommy and Birthday Baby
She liked her toys all right, but I think what she really wanted was her own Enterprise—just like her big brother.
Little Man taught her how to push the button on the top and make it light up!
I think we have another Little Trekkie on our hands...
She makes her daddy proud!
Pretty soon she'll be able to pull her middle and index finger apart and say, "Live Long and Prosper."
We shall see...
In any case, my hope for her is that she will grow up to know that she is loved, by her mommy, her daddy, but mostly by her Father in Heaven who gave the greatest gift of all, His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ whose birth we celebrate in December.
In Him, everyday is a celebration for the Life He gave so that we might truly live.
"For He made Him who knew no sin that we might have the righteousness of God in Him."
(2 Corinthians 5:21, NIV)
