playing with daddy

Karina sure loves her daddy and her daddy sure loves her. Everytime I see them playing together it warms my heart. Jeff is so good with her and I know that he will only continue to have fun as we watch her grow and learn more and more. She is about to be finished with this little play mat since she is becoming very good at sitting up by herself. It seems like it is happening so fast. Jeff is such a wonderful husband and father. God has blessed us with more then we could have ever asked for and we can only hope to bring glory to Him through all we do and say. Everyday I am reminded of how unworthy I am of His great love for me. My little girl with her daddy paints a picture of how my Father in heaven takes joy in my taking joy in Him. Karina and I went on a walk today and just soaked in all the beauty of the day. The sun was shining and the birds were singing. The sky was an amazing bright blue and the pines were the prettiest green. Knowing that he made all this for his glory and our enjoyment brings to mind the scripture:
The heavens declare the glory of God; And the firmament shows His handiwork. Day unto day utters speech, And night unto night reveals knowledge. There is no speech nor language Where their voice is not heard.
Psalms 19:1-3

Funny faces!

Karina and I had some fun the other day with the camera. She sure can make some funny faces sometimes. What a personality she already has. Just when I feel like I couldn't possibly love her more God suprises me and my heart is filled with even more. When she wakes up and gets so excited to see me by waving her arms and legs, when she falls asleep in my arms, when she is crying and helpless and needs my comfort are all times that I know even more that I was meant to be her mommy. I praise the Lord for all the days I've had with her and I pray for many more. I know you all think that all I am going to write about is my little girl. Well that is true so far, but I will try to write about more then just that. More soon.

Karina's first Valentine's Day!

Hey there everyone,

This is a shot of Karina with her Valentine's balloon from her sweet Nana. She loves it and is interested in anything shiny it seems. Thank you again mom for the sweet card and gift! We had a really nice Valentine's Day. Karina and I fixed a really nice dinner for Jeff and some yummy brownies for desert that we are still trying to finish. :) It usually doesn't take me long to wipe out things like that, but I have been trying to be good. Then Karina and I went to a wonderful birthday party for a friend of ours and ended up with a whole lot of cake as well!! So mommy and baby will be pinging from the sugar for quite some time. Praise God cake freezes.

It seems like February is flying by. What a great year it's been so far. I know we are going to turn around twice and it will be summer time and I can say that I am looking forward to it. Warm sunny days, trips to the beach, playing in the pool, cold lemonade sitting in a lawn chair all sound so inviting. But for now I will be content sitting by the fire on cool winter nights. We are really enjoying our new home and couldn't ask for more.

Lets see what else is new and exciting... Well I've spotted Karina's first tooth coming in and I know it is going to change her whole smile to see a cute little tooth popping out when she grins really big. I was thinking it would be soon because she has been a little more whiny than usual and has been waking in the night needing comfort. So we will see when it actually is visible and of course I will post a picture. Right now all you can see is a little line where it is coming in. One more thing for the baby book.

We were just over at Brian and Emily's house and had a really nice time. I am so blessed to have them as family and so enjoy their company. I can't believe how fast their kids are growing and I think that little Caroline is going to catch up pretty quick to her cousin in size. I am sure everyone will think they are sisters especially since us mom's like to buy them matching outfits. hehehe.

Well I guess I can stop rambling on. Hopefully you all won't get sick of reading my blog before I've even had it for a whole month. I'll try to make my next post more exciting. Bye for now.
