Your Sins Are Forgotten

I think I'm the kind of person who probably beats herself up about sins more than God Himself. I think I had to hear this song.

She Naps!

Sleeping Beauty is living up to her name as we speak. She hadn't napped in three or four days. I was beginning to wonder if naps were officially M.I.A. b/c it had been so long. She's napping right now.

Dinner's cooking. I'm enjoying my blog once again. It's been so long. I've forgotten how much I've enjoyed connecting and networking with so many wonderful Christian women. And I've forgotten how much fun it is to share Anna's firsts.

I was thinking today about Mary-Kate and Ashley Olson when they were on Full House and they were two... I can see now how they got them to say their lines. I can tell Anna to say just about anything and she'll repeat it. Today I was having some fun and I told her to say, "You got it, dude!" Yeah, it's still cute when it comes out of a two year old's mouth! haha :D

Anna... Tomboy or Girlie-Girl?

This is the great debate when we theorize about big-girl Anna Daisy.

Evidence for Girlie-Girlism:
Anna loves to wear dresses and sandals.
She loves to have her hair fixed and loves to look in the mirror to check the results.
She kisses her reflection.
She doesn't like to get dirty.
She takes three or four baths a day (good thing we don't pay for water!)
She usually has me wash her hands several times throughout a meal. Hahaha.

Evidence for Tomboyism:
She never stops climbing.
She's not afraid of heights.
She never stops running.
She can roll with the big boys.
When she plays, I often notice her playing with the boys instead of the girls. Maybe because girls are too scared of falling or getting hurt? I don't know. But she usually plays with the boys. Yesterday we let her run around the McDonald's Playplace. She and two big boys... one that was about four and the other who was about seven were playing in the slide. They would CLIMB to the top of the tube-slide, then all tumble to the bottom. It took everything in me to not save her from impending disaster. Good thing I didn't b/c she was never hurt. She had a great time and was pink-cheeked and hot at the end of those two hours.

Maybe she'll be a wonderful combination. Physically adept, yet loves girly things. That would make daddy happy and mommy. xD ehehhee
