18 Month Birthday

Yesterday was my 18 month birthday! I am really getting to be a big girl. I weighed 24.6 pounds and was 31 inches tall. (My mama schedule my dr. appointment on this important day of my life, and I had to get shots. I did not like them at all. Plus I had to wait in the dr. office for 1 1/2 hours. That is a long time to be couped up with no toys. But I was a trooper!)

I am learning quite a few new words. Some of my newer words I have been saying are baby, Nay Nay (my friend Alayna nickname!), mow, no-no (not really a new one for me, but I like to say that a lot when Mama and Dada talk to me. They don't like that word, but I make sure I say it REALLY cute and with a smile!), keys, and na (fan!).

My favorite toy is my baby. I love taking my baby in her little stroller. My mom found a baby stroller for me at a garage sale and I love it. My favorite DVD is Cedarmont Kids. I love the songs This Little Light of Mine, If Your Happy and you Know it, Jesus Love the Little Ones Like Me, and The B-I-B-L-E. My best friends are Katy, Alayna, and Caleb. They go to my church. I get to see them 2-3 times a week. They are very nice to me! I also love writing with pens. I just learned to take off the caps or click them so that I am now able to draw now. It is a lot of fun (Mama is not a huge fan of pens though??) I love going to parks. I love my papa, nana, and Auntie K K. They spoil me a lot! I like helping my mom loading and unloading the dishwasher (she lets me do the silverware.), doing laundry, and sweeping the kitchen floor.

Enjoy the pictures!

I am just now getting around to putting up some Easter pictures! April is a super busy month for us, but we know that at the end of the month, Tim parents are coming to visit. Tim is getting off 3-4 days for that so we know that we can relax at the end of the month!

We had a wonderful Easter Sunday. Easter is becoming my favorite holiday to celebrate! I love the Easter songs. I love focusing on what Christ did for me, an unworthy sinner dead in my sins, on the cross. (I need to make that a daily focus and not just an Easter time focus.) How I take my salvation for granted so often. I love celebrating His triumph over death! I just love Easter.

How deep the Father's love for us
How vast beyond all measure
That He should give His only Son
And make a wretch His treasure
How great the pain of searing loss
The Father turns His face away
As wounds which mar the Chosen One
Bring many sons to glory

Behold the man upon the cross
My sin upon His shoulder
Ashamed I hear my mocking voice
Call out among the scoffers
It was my sin that held Him there
Until it was accomplished
His dying breath has brought me life
I know that it is finished

I will not boast in anything
No gifts, no power, no wisdom
But I will boast in Jesus Christ
His death and resurrection
Why should I gain from His reward
I cannot give an answer
But this I know with all my heart
His wounds have paid my ransom
