It Can't Be.....But It Is! :'-(

Today is my baby's FIRST birthday! Has it really been a WHOLE year since she was born?! It makes me sad to think that this year (not unlike all of the others) has gone in a blink of an eye. I want to hold on to the baby but am enjoying the little girl she is becoming. She has the cutest grin with a wrinkle in her nose that I've ever seen. She also has about the loudest scream I've ever heard.....seriously! We are currently working on that though. She truly is the infamous "little girl with the curl in the middle of her forehead".....Because when she is good, she is really good, but when she is bad...she is horrid! I love her to pieces!!! She is a climber, she loves her sisters and her brothers, she is a Daddy's girl, she loves her Mama, and she is a major hugger! It's so cute and sweet when she wraps her tiny arms around your neck and squeezes. It melts my heart. Her eyes hold an orneriness that none can compare with. There is spunk in her spirit that I pray will one day be directed in a Christ honoring way.

Our beautiful birthday girl!
I am thankful for our little Selah Joy Houston. She has been that blessed reminder from our Heavenly Father that we are to "pause & reflect, and rest in the Joy of the Lord which is our strength" in every event of our lives. If I remember nothing else from the past year, may I remember this. Selah, like all of the others, is truly a gift from God! I look forward to watching her as she grows, her first steps, first words, her discoveries of the world around her, the first time she reads, her first lost tooth, all the milestones that I know will come all too soon, but for now I am content to sit back and hold her in my arms all nestled in holding on to my "baby" just a little longer.

Not really in the mood for photos
