Selah's Advent- Day 1

We are doing a double Advent calendar for the little. One is a bible verse and the other is a book/movie/PJs/activity.

Tonight's Advent was a new pair of PJs!

Don't you love the reindeer on the butt? :)

Verse of the evening:

      Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign. Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.
(Isaiah 7:14 ESV)

I am thankful for video baby monitors. With them, I can see that Selah is crying because she has stood up in her crib and doesn't know how to sit back down, instead of her crying because she is terribly hurt.

This is the one we have:

I didn't cry today. First time in a week. Does this mean I'm over it? Not in the least. I'm far from over it.

I have an empty spot inside that can't be filled. I miss you, little one.

30 Days of Thankfulness- Day 26

I am thankful for the little girl I have in my arms. I may have already mentioned her, but I am truly thankful for her still. She has made all of this much more easier to handle.
