Psalm 127:3 - "Children are a blessing from Yahweh, the fruit of the womb is a reward."
It is amazing how we don't really have a say in what child the Lord is going to bring into our lives, but it is always a perfect fit. We have been so blessed with our sweet Ruthie (affectionately called "Babers" around our house) and are so excited to celebrate her first year of life! A year ago today (August 10, 2009) God gave us our 10 pound, 4 ounce little chunk. Here's a few pictures (o.k. a LOT - what mother could scale it down??) of our beautiful girl in no particular order. Enjoy! (Side Note: Now that I've started looking at all of these pictures, I can tell I'm going to have a very unproductive day. She's just so sweet!!)
