Our birthday princess

I am late posting an update on Eva! Her first birthday was in late July as my first trimester sickness hit. I realized I never got around to posting really anything during that time, and wow have the days flown by! I feel like it was August, I blinked, and now we're putting up Christmas lights! Miss Eva has such a little personality and her Daddy, Mommy, and brothers enjoy her so much. Watching the three of them play together is such a joy sometimes I think my heart could burst! Eva had a fun birthday party with our families and there is no question her highlight was eating the cake. ;) Our little brown eyed girl runs, twirls, hugs her brothers, eats crayons when I'm not looking, sings, loves to read, never stops moving... We can't imagine life without her! There is just something different a little girl brings to the mix. She is just soo sweet!

"But when Jesus saw it, he was much displeased, and said unto them, Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God. Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not enter therein." Mark 10: 14-15

Two and a half

Today is the last day our sweet second born is two years old. Tomorrow, Zeke turns three which he said officially makes him a "big boy." ;) I found this sweet poem online, and it just melted this Momma's heart!

"Two and a Half"
Hold him a little longer
Rock him a little more
Tell him another story
(You've only told him four)
Let him sleep on your shoulder
Rejoice in his happy smile
He is only two and a half
For such a little while!

In other family news, we found out baby number four is going to be a boy! The boys are excited to have another wrestling partner, and Eva is still the little princess... for now! ;) We are rejoicing and thanking God for another healthy baby and His many blessings!!
