So sorry if this post is all over the place - I've been a tinsy winsy bit sleep deprived :)

Why, you ask?

Because.....our baby girl is here!!!!

And oh my goodness. It hasn't even been two weeks since I had her - and she has given me SOOOO many sweet things to blog about. Simple things - like how I love kissing her cheeks and how fun it is to dress her up in cute little outfits. And deep things - like how I have such a strong desire for her to have faith and how I want her to be a confident and courageous lady.

My heart is just so full right now, y'all. The fact that I now have two healthy little ones- is a blessing that is not at all missed by this Mama - not for one second. Yes, I may be a bit sleepy and delirious at times - Yes, I may be typing this with one hand because my new little miracle insisted on being cuddled half-way through this post - And yes, I may be smack dab in the middle of potty training my first born - but friends - my cup runneth over.

The joyful laughter that fills our home - the high fives that go around when my son uses the potty - the cry heard in the middle of the night from my hungry infant - the playful bark I hear from our sweet dog outside, the smell of baby lotion, the bombardment of pink clothing that fills my daughters closet, the "ouch!" that comes out of my mouth every time I step on one of my son's little toy tractors, the sound of the front door opening when my husband gets home from work, the look on his face when he holds our kids, the comfort I feel when he embraces me, the precious words that come out of my son's mouth when he is asked to pray - yes - my cup is overflowing.

I just want to shout "Thank you, Lord!!!" But somehow, that just doesn't seem like enough.

I will be filled with joy because of you, I will sing praises to your name, O Most High.
