I love being a momma

Big Eyes:)
His grammy loves him
Me and Little man. I haven't had a shower, so ignore me. I just got done working out at the Y, the wonderful early Christmas present Jenn gave me.
Aunt Jenn. I know you like to see little man cry. which he actually does much more often these days.
He looks just like my dad in that picture.
He looks like he is about to beat someone up there:)

Can I just say I love being a momma. A stay at home momma at that. I was so praising the Lord last week, because it was six weeks since Little Man had been born. It would have been the week I was going back to work. But Mahima as Jenn would say! God made a way...He is the God of the Impossible, for me to stay at home with little man. That means Glory, I get to be the one to see him roll over for the first time(which he did yesterday, completley from his tummy to his back). I get to see his smiles , and watch him play with his favorite toy, aunt jenn's moose. I get to pray with him in the morning, and praise the Lord with him in the afternoon...PraISE the Lord. I am so blessed beyond measure, and am truly living in my "promised land" as believing God would say.

Of course it isn't always easy. There are defionatly challenges that come with motherhood, just ask kellie who came to see me sunday afternoon when I couldn't stop crying and neither could Alex;)God is continuing to refine me and teach me to be free from selfishness. He is also teaching me so so so much from Colossians aobut what Jesus has really done for me, rescuing me from the kingdom of darkness. Reconciling me to God. Making me complete. Giving me all wisdom and knowledge. It is amazing what blessings we have "In him" ....And then comes the convicting part, chapter 2. Just as you have received Christ Jesus...So also walk in him. In other words let him lead your life. that includes putting on a heart of compassion, gentleness, humility, kindness, patience and forgiveness(col. 3). I have a l ong way to go in walking like Jesus. Praise the Lord for his grace

In other news, I have starting working out at the Y thanks to my very generous sis Jen. I am loving it. I can't wait to get into exercising.
