My Darling Abby at 6 Months
You are a chunky little girl with a ravenous appetite for milk, always begging for more. I've finally gotten to a place where I've been telling you 'no" or holding you off because you would eat all the time if I let you. You are enamored with your thumb and a cute white rabbit your Aunt Beth gave you. Both items are a necessary part of your nap and night time routine. You love watching your brothers play and run around like mad men. You laugh and giggle when anyone give you direct eye contact. At night you sometimes get fussy if Mommy has eaten some vegetables - especially zucchini and broccoli and garlic. Your a great sleeper, though you did wake me up last night because your hand got stuck in your PJ's and you couldn't get to your thumb!
My sweet daughter - I pray for your salvation daily, I petition the Lord on behalf of your life, asking for a gentle and quiet spirit that trusts solely in the Lord. I pray your laughter and smiles will only increase and the joy you bring to our family will be contagious. I am a blessed mother to have you as my daughter - all 14.4 pounds of you!
"Let Him who boasts, boast in this, that He understands and knows me, that I am the God who exercises lovingkindness, justice and righteousness." Jeremiah 9:24
Lord - thank you for the privilege of being a mom to three wonderful children and for a husband who is like no other. He is a man of God, a man of service, a man of generosity, and a man of deep faith.
