Can it be?

Inara is 11 months old?! NO WAY! Today we were watching Baby MacDonald (the ONLY thing that is worthy enough of her attention), when I just squeezed her so hard. Can it be that my little itty bitty baby is nearly 1 year old? Seriously...just yesterday she was moving around in my belly. Its crazy how fast the time goes. Everyone told me that before...but wow is it true. Its amazing how much I love that girl too. I hope one day she will know, but I doubt it. I sure didn't know how much my mom cared for me...until I had a daughter of my own. My love for her is SO strong. I want so badly to hold her in my arms forever. But I can't...and I don't really want that either. I know she is NOT mine to keep forever. She belongs to Jesus. After all her middle name (Sarai) means "Princess"--a daughter of King Jesus. How wonderful and blessed I am to take care of her and try to show her of His perfect love. It is one of the greatest gifts I have ever been given.

Here are some pics of this last month. Enjoy!

I walked in the kitchen and found her standing! Exciting and scary all at the same time!

Now that she can stand...she is into everything.

She loves to dance with Justin when He gets home from work!
