We give this child to you, O Lord, our precious gift of love; help us to lead each step aright with help and guidance from above.

O bless this child, and grant when she is grown, she will have learned to love your way, and choose it for her own.

11 months

Wow! I know I write this every month, but I really can't believe how fast our little baby is growing up! When I saw the pictures that I included in this post I realized that our little Naomi is looking more and more like a little girl, the baby stage will soone be long gone.
She never ceases to amaze us with the new things that she is learning everyday. All day long she walks around the house picking up anything that strikes her fancy. She esspecially loves finding every fuzz on the carpet and promptly putting in her mouth. I would not be surprised if she has a little fuzz ball in her tummy. Gross!
Her little personality is shinning through more each day, sometimes I think that we may have a DIVA on our hands. She definatly knows what she wants and isn't afraid to go after it, even if I tell her no. She is full of smiles and giggles and is constantly talking to herself as she plays.
I can honestly say that motherhood has surprised, challenge, and changed me more than I ever expected. I don't think that I was prepared for how much it would change my life. I had a cognitive knowledge of what it would be like to have a child, but I never expected the expereince to be so intense. I strive to be a better person, wife, and mother because of her. Thankyou Naomi, you are truely a precious gift from God.
"To have a child is to forever have your heart walking around outside your body" (I am not sure who wrote this phrases,but it sure is true)
"To laugh often and much, to win
the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children, to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false
friends, to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others, to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, or a garden patch... to know that even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This
is to have succeeded!" - Emerson
