Faith turns 2yrs old!

Well, I am officially the mother of a 2yr old. Faith turned 2yrs old today! I’m still having a hard time believing it. We didn’t really do much today to celebrate. However, I sang happy birthday to her quite a few times. Also, I’m working on her response to “how old is Faith?” and it’s a work in progress. I made pizza for dinner, which might just be her favorite food…I think it’s a toss up between pizza and hot dogs lol. She is getting to be such a big girl. She’s walking around like crazy. I still don’t think I’d classify her as an independent walker quite yet, but she is so very close! Another thing she got to do today (besides eat pizza) is have (mostly) free reign of the house. Up until now, she has pretty much been confined to the living room, only because she likes to get in to trouble (I know, you’re thinking “not Faith, she’s perfect just like her mommy”). So, today I decided to be brave (or stupid) and leave the gate open for the living room. Faith actually did really well listening and staying out of trouble for the most part. She really enjoyed being able to explore the rest of the house with a little more distance from her watching mommy. I think it actually encouraged her to walk more. She was deciding on her own to walk from one end of the room to the other, and doing a good job with it too. *Sigh* such a big girl.
Memere and pepere are coming tonight to spend the weekend with us (mostly Faith lol). Aunt Sarah is coming down tomorrow. She is making the cake for Faiths party on Sunday, and I’m excited to see it because it’s a surprise.
Speaking of memere and pepere, I’m pretty sure they just pulled up!

On a side note, I don’t want to sadden this day, but I do have a story to share. I found out through facebook that a friend who Matt and I went to college with was an uncle today for approximately 17hrs. His brother and wife found out at their 20 week ultrasound in January that their son had a form of anencephaly. This is where the top portion of the baby’s skull is missing. This condition has a 100% mortality rate. These babies live anywhere from 2 minutes to 10 days after birth, if they even make it full term. Their son, Corbett, was born via scheduled c-section today and was able to spend 17hrs with his parents here on earth before going to be with Jesus. Their story reminded me today how precious each moment is that I spend with my two little girls. I am so blessed that God has entrusted Matt and I to raise them. I kept thinking today that Faith could have just as easily been taken from our arms to God’s. Clara too for that matter, but Faith has a little bit more history. That Faith and Corbett share a birthday touched me as well, why, I’m not exactly sure how to put that into words. Corbett’s parents are leaning on God, and I know He will continually comfort them and bring them peace.
