A First for Mommy...

All of you know that we waited and wanted a baby for so VERY long and are blessed by Farrah. I have always dreamed of being a mommy and being able to stay at home is a true sacrifice for my family financially but it is so worth it! In Farrah's short life I can count on one hand how many times I've left her with someone else but other then that she is with me all the time and I would not trade it for anything in the world. I love that I'm the one who gets her out of the bed each morning and the one who feeds her, the one who bathes her and the one how puts her to bed. I have to remember that James likes these moments too and I have to share!

So this coming weekend James and I are going on a getaway without Farrah!! Am I ready for this? Not really but it is MUCH needed!! But I'm excited for both grandmother's. They have not gotten to keep Farrah over night and want to keep her so here is a first for me...leaving my baby girl over night for TWO nights!! James has been away for a couple of weekends and when he comes home Farrah is very excited to see him. So I know it will be good for me and James to get a way but it will be good for Farrah to be with her grandparents too.

James asked his mom to keep Farrah on Friday and Saturday and my mom will have her on Saturday and Sunday. So Friday Jean works so I asked if I needed to get a sitter and Jim, James' dad, said no that he would keep her!! If any of you know Jim this makes me laugh cause Jim is this tough guy but when it comes to his granddaughter's he's a big teddy bear! So Farrah will stay with Papa Jim Friday til Lula gets home. I can't wait to see how this goes!

The last two weeks Farrah has not stayed in the nursery. Last week I got paged right when the sermon started so I went to see what was going on and poor Farrah was really upset so I just took her into the service and she did great. So today I drop her off and she immediately starts crying so I told Jessie if she is still crying in ten minutes page me. Well I get paged and I go and get her and as soon as she feels my hands on her she stops crying. I'm not kidding! I hold her and she takes a deep sigh...like she's saying "Mommy's here!!!" So I tried to go back to church but she wasn't going to have it. So we came home. We'll try again! But to tell you the truth it kinda just makes my heart melt. To be the one person who can come to the rescue makes me love her that much more! My prayer is that I will always be that person for her. When she has a bad day at school or her friends are having problems and for her to come to me and "rescue" her is a wonderful thought! To be able to share with her the Jesus that lives in me and to be a person she can depend on...I don't have words for.

On a side note...Farrah turns six months this week!! Where oh where did the time go? I will let you know all about her appointment next week. Again I say, sweet baby girl we are truly blessed!!


Farrah's favorite time is waking up daddy and stealing his pillow!
