Well, it has been a little while since I last blogged... I guess about 2 weeks.
Aubrey is walking now! We were at mom's house for lunch Sunday January the 11th, which was ironically the date of the first day I ever met Aaron, and Frank, Lindsey's husband, came over to me and asked me if Aubrey was walking yet. I told him no, not yet. And he said well she just took 3 steps and I didn't know if that was a big deal or not. Yeah!!!!!! It's kind of a big deal I told him. So that was the start of it. Frank was the first to see her very very first steps. So from then on it was history. She is a little walker now. Sometimes she will just give up and start crawling still, but for the most part, she has it down. She is also very musical, just like her big sis. She will sit forever and play the little pink piano in her room! Alyssa likes the guitar and lead vocals on her glitter microphone. I think we are going to have us some worship leaders one of these days!!!!!
Anyway, Aubrey also said "baby" the other day and I asked her if she wanted to go night night and she told me flat out , "no." and shook her head. Such a funny girl! She loves her babies now too. She hugs them and holds them close to her chest like the way I hold her and walks around cuddling them and kissing them. She gives good kisses now too, not the kind that are open mouthed anymore. She sticks out her bottom lip like she is making a sad face and that is how she gives her sweet little kisses! I can't believe she is about to be 1!!!!! The time with her has really flown by so fast!
Alyssa is a funny girl too...always singing. She was singing the song "Mighty to Save," the other day and she said "Savior, He can move the mattress." I told her that I think the word was mountain, not mattress but I bet Jesus could move a mattress too! Little cutie patootie! She gets sweeter by the day. She is good to her mama and her little sissy! I can already tell she is going to be protective of her, she already is! I pray often that they will be each other's best friends throughout life. That is one of the reasons I really wanted 2 girls back to back so that they would have each other to share life with! I love it! I never had a sister and always thought it was special the relationships that sisters had with each other. But then again, God gave me Savita, who is like my sister, but more like my best friend, next to Aaron and the girls! I am thankful for her in more ways than one!!! I am glad my brother snagged us such a good one!!! And I have always had my girls Kendra and Lindsey! I love them and am thankful for them too! They have always been special to me and close to my heart!!!!
Anyway, there isn't much change with me and Aaron. Things are good! He is as sweet as ever! I am so thankful that he has a job, even though he doesn't work as much as we would like or need. But thank the Lord for farming! It has saved us. I know a lot of people who have been laid off and I am just so thankful to God that Aaron has a job, and the farming! Even in a recession, people have to eat right!!! So we will farm on. He planted our onions and some potatoes already. We are praying that the freeze didn't get to them! Well, in conclusion, life is good, God is good, we are blessed, and I am thankful!!!!!!!!
