Four blessed months!

I walked out of the house today on our way to church and thought, wow! Four months ago on this day, at this time, I was sitting in my hospital bed excitedly awaiting the arrival of baby Scherb.

The night before, I felt the day would never arrive and I would be pregnant forEVER. As most of my readers know, Kayla was induced after refusing to come on her own a week after her due date. In my opinion she was two weeks late, I mean come on, babies are not supposed to be ten and a half pounds when their born!

Maybe it was her way of telling me she's going to be stubborn, just like her momma just like her daddy.

The past four months have flown by. Where did summer go? Well if you live in Iowa, no where! The Lord has blessed us with a never-ending summer. But gone are the days of playing in the pool and tropical snow.

 Part of me is sad, sad that my little baby is growing up so fast. Sad that I may forget all the wonderful baby things she's done. All the wonderful snuggles, smiles, giggles, screams, and wiggles. But I know she has to grow up, and I'm more thankful than words can express to my Lord for giving me four beautiful months with her.

I can only pray that the Lord blesses us with many more months and years to raise and nurture the soul of this beautiful little girl.

Happy four month birthday baby girl
Mommy loves you!

Here's a fun little photo shoot we did when she got her new baby leggings
