Nine months

As of August 17, Lael has been breathing for as long as I was pregnant with her.
Well, okay, if you want to get really technical I guess that's not quite accurate seeing as how she was 3 days late. But who's counting?

That question actually makes me laugh now that I think about it.

Um, I, for one, was counting every single hour that I went past my due date. Can I get an amen, anyone?

I feel like nine months is really quite a milestone. I can really see this girl's personality shining through and I'm loving what I'm seeing. She is as happy as the day is long.

One of my biggest prayers for her and one that I pray daily is that the Lord would place in her a spirit of peace and contentment. My deepest desire is that God will work in her heart at an early age and that the joy that only He can give would dwell within her.


O Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!
You have set your glory above the heavens.
From the lips of children and infants you have ordained praise because of your enemies,
to silence the foe and the avenger.
Psalm 8:1-2
