"Blessed are those who need Him enough,
To know Him enough,
To love Him enough. . .
To know HE is enough." p. 90 Mercy Triumphs

Robert brought home these little shoes for Haven. She looks adorable in them.
She turned ten months now and she has been walking for over a month. She doesn't just take a few steps - she walks. We counted 60 in a row with no sit down this week. This morning I was sitting by the window in my room and she came walking in. She looks funny walking when she is so petite! She is determined on keeping up with everyone else around here. I fear she will be running laps around me by the time she turns one. So much for keeping our last baby the "baby" for as long as possible - she's ten months going on two already.
Still nursing pretty much full time but she seems almost anxious to eat food and will try anything we give her, reaching for more. She is cutting her first top tooth this week, with two already in place on the bottom. I'm not sure why the rush, but it's like she feels left out that the other children do things she's not.
She's a sweet little girl. She loves dancing, cuddling, and me singing to her and doesn't even mind her carseat, though the stroller, if not moving, is a whole different thing. She is slightly scared of Lake and her enthusiasm in life, but the rest of the kiddos she adores - particularly Bub, who spoils her and will remove her from her crib any ol' time she calls out. She has the older boys' hearts as well. They pay her far too much attention and are constantly saying, "She is so cute." Lately she has become more of a mama's girl (typically due to teething season) but she's pretty content sitting with Robert at the dinner table.
She's not a big laugher/smile and super friendly like Lake was as a baby and not super shy and quiet like the first two girls. She is all her own - loves to make her presence known, extroverted, always on the move, extremely alert to what is taking place around her. I always enjoy seeing a baby's personality start to really reveal itself and shine through.
So that's her update and last summers feeling of death in her pregnancy and wondering if I would ever survive. . . Well, of course it is completely beyond my ability to write in words how much it was worth it all to be holding her in my lap right now.
