Mary Ann is a treasured blessing,
half a year has come and gone and somehow
she is now 6 months old!

Each day I love her more and become more smitten with her...
I still love breathing in her sweet baby smell, rubbing my face on her soft white skin,
looking into her crystal blue eyes as they glisten, hearing her babble and say "mamama"!
Mary Ann is now sitting up, and getting onto her hands and knees to rock...crawling
will be here before we know it. But for now I want to hold her close and soak in each
baby stage/moment, for this time passes ever so quickly!

So, I'm not just celebrating Mary Ann's 6 months,
I celebrate the Creator!
The One who formed her and entrusted us with her,
for He has great plans for her.

May we raise her to know our Lord as Savior,
and to serve Him all the days of her life.

Six months already! That went by so fast, but she sure is cute. I can understand about treasuring each day. They grow up so fast. Happy 1/2 year old birthday Mary Ann.
