That’s what my daughter just sang! That’s about the last thing I’d expect her to sing, since she’s never even seen South Pacific! Usually it’s something from Shirley Temple or a worship song, but this time Rogers and Hamerstine! What can I say…the girl’s a spounge! Happy Tuesday!!! Here’s a pic of her dressed as Shirley Temple last fall! Happy Tuesday!!!
Okay, so since we’ve moved into our place we’ve had a spare bedroom…the trouble is I don’t like it being “spare”. I want to transform it into a wonderful nursery or toddler room, with color splashed here and fabric hanging there! I’ve learned the hard way with Charis, that my calendar isn’t always matching His. My “plan” was to start an adoption when Charis was an infant, and have our two little ones grow up closely together. Now fast forward three years and still we have yet to officially start our adoption! Was it laziness? I sure hope not=-)! Just lots of redirecting from our Lord, a long with a lot of research….and blog stalking! I know we are getting closer to getting things started, but can’t really work much on the spare room yet! Why, you say? Cause we don’t know which child/ren He’s going to direct us too.
Over the past few years, my hearts changed a lot. Babies have always been my nitch! I loved seeing Charis explore everything for the first time (still do!), and was thrilled to make home made baby food, to breast feed, to babywear, and cloth diaper. So naturally I should adopt a baby right? I’ve been struggaling with the thought of only doing an infant-girl adoption for a while now…ever since I read the poem, A Waiting Child (a few posts down)! I’m not too emotional about things, but that poem brought tears to my eyes! So will we adopt a baby? I don’t know. Will we adopt a toddler? I don’t know! Boy or girl or both? I don’t know. The good thing is, my Father does. He knows the tears they’ve shed. He knows the number of hairs on their head! He knows what orphanage they’re at! He knows who their birth parents are….and most of all He knows how to bring us together! So in His perfect timing, I look forward to making that spare bedroom not so spare! Until then I’ll remain busy with my little lady! Since pics are fun, here’s some pics of random fun with our little one!
Today I was reading in 2 Kings 21. In it you see the result of God’s permissive will. I wonder how much I’ve tried to push for that…and still do sometimes! It proved that Hezekiah was much better off (and Israel as a whole) if he would have chosen God’s will for his life, instead of pushing for his own will! Even though something may seem better at the time, His will is perfect! Since I’ve been lacking in the picture department for a while, here’s a few of my little lady!
I saw you meet your child today
You kissed your baby joyfully
And as you walked away with her
I played pretend you’d chosen me.
I’m happy for the baby,
yet Inside I’m aching miserably
I want to plead as you go by,
“Does no-one want a child of three?”
I saw you meet your child today
In love with her before you met
And as I watched you take her out
I knew it wasn’t my turn yet.
I recognize you from last year!
I knew I’d seen your face before!
But you came for a second babe.
Does no-one want a child of four?
I saw you meet your child today
But this time there was something new
A nurse came in and took MY hand
And then she gave my hand to you.
Can this be true? I’m almost six!
And there are infants here, you see?
But then you kissed me and I knew
The child you picked this time was me.

I’ve read great revies about these diapers, and look forward to adding these to my stash. My lil’ one still uses diaps at bed time, and boy would these look cute on her tush!!!
This evening I was watching/listening to some Phil Wickham stuff on youtube. I noticed that one song was linked to parts of the movie, The Passion. Charis was playing next to me, and looked over, asking me who was on the screen (the clip was not gory). Not thinking I casually said Jesus (meaning a person playing Him). She jumped up and said “Jesus…I want to see HIM!”. Oh, that we would all be so excited to get the chance to see our Jesus! I pray I too would jump up in excitement when I get to see my savior’s face. She was pretty disappointed when it wasn’t really Jesus.

I have to admit, I’m a sucker for a baby sucking their thumb (no pun intended). My daughter was one on the many adorable thumb suckers. The only problem is getting them to stop! In my many years of early childhood, I’ve weaned many babies from binkies and bottles, but never had to wean a baby from sucking their thumb…until Charis that is. For the past year and half we’ve been working on it! We’ve tried apple cider vinegar (she didn’t care that her thumb tasted like a salad), band-aids (she discovered she could take them off), and even just preparing by saying when you’re two, no more thumb. That last one worked for two whole days…then her birthday party went up in flames…literally. The following day when she saw our charred kitchen, in went that thumb and stayed! So since then we’ve attempting, but no progress yet. As her third birthday approaches I hoping this time around sticks (we’re hoping for no flames too)! Hubby’s playing music…time to join in!
