Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one's youth. Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them! He shall not be put to shame when he speaks with his enemies in the gate. Psalm 127:3-5
Happy Birthday Eliza! Eliza has been nothing but a blessing since she arrived last August. She turned one year old on August 27th and we celebrated yesterday here at our home, thanking the Lord for the precious gift He has given us in our daughter. Eliza loved being the center of attention, loved presents, loved wrapping paper . . . but didn't love cake. As soon as Eliza had one finger in the frosting she started crying - and not just crying, but sobbing. (Yes, we have a major drama queen our hands - I'm sure we will need a lot of prayers as she nears 13!!) It was so sad but so cute. She was finally willing to try a bit of cake on a fork and warmed up to the idea a little bit, but she never really dug in. The presents were definitely her thing and she loved having a houseful of friends!
