Today is our sweet little girl's first birthday. It is so hard to believe it has been a year since she came into our family. Her smile just melts your heart. She has learned so many things recently. She pulls up on her own, can say hey, hi, mama, daddy, thanks, and uh oh. No one can make her laugh like her big brother. We just love her so much and are so happy that God picked us to be her mommy and daddy. This past Saturday we had a very tiny birthday party for our little princess.
I hope you all have a very happy day! My heart day I spent loving on my babies. My son was so proud of the gifts he picked out for me: A card, Dove chocolates, and flowers. It will be about 6 more weeks until I see my sweetie. He appreciates all your letters and prayers.
Yahoo! Phase 1 down and roughly 8 weeks to go! I am very proud to report that Patrick has passed his swim qualification portion of Marine boot camp. He has some very busy weeks ahead and I personally would not want to be in his shoes or boots right now. All I can say is that I am so very proud of all he has accomplished to get where he is and all that he is doing right now. I am truly having to take the verse "Trust in the Lord with all your heart, soul, and mind and lean not on your own understanding." Every time I start worrying or miss him I lift him or whatever is bothering me to Jesus.
Charles is just growing and learning new things. It took about 6 months but I am happy to say Charles is potty trained. He is riding his tricycle very well now. He is a little sweetie and makes us all laugh. This past Wednesday night at the end of Awana right before we left he told me wait mommy. I said okay. He ran to this cute little girl in his class and hugged her and whispered in her ear I love you. We have a little Romeo on our hands.
Meredith is just crawling everywhere and trying to pull up. She is growing up way too fast. She is my very serious little baby. Right now she enjoys playing with all her toys and her brother's toys. Her top teeth have finally cut the gum. She does not like to hear no. She will primp up and start crying every single time.
I guess that is all for now. Thanks for all your prayers and support of our family. If you have spent time writing Patrick we really appreciate it!
