So far, so good

So far so good with the big girl bed.  Molly has slept in her bed for the last 2 nights, tonight is the third, and all have been successful.  I am still getting used to her coming in and waking me up.  The first day I thought I was going to wet the bed when I heard "hi!" really loud.  She has only had one nap, unsuccessfully in her bed, but we had an off day and she was with friends of ours for a couple of hours, while Eric and I were at a meeting.  So the whole day was a little thrown off.  So tomorrow will be the real day for napping in her big girl bed. 

Today Molly got to watch 20 people get baptized at church.  Hallelujah, praise the Lord!  I love seeing people say out loud..."I believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the living God..." 

Molly and I stood in the back and clapped and cheered the whole time.  That is one thing about ministry that I love.  My kid(s) will grow up seeing such awesome things, and seeing how awesome our God truly is.  This year so far we have had over 50 people get baptized.  That is amazing, and all God!

Yesterday when I was at Target I saw this cute little shirt on the clearance rack for 94 cents, yes, cents!  So I picked up two of them, one for Molly, and one for her best friend, Maddie.  The girls matched today at church.  They looked so cute!


Hope you all had a great weekend!  Stay tuned for some awesome news coming at you this week.  No-I am not pregnant, but it is something big, exciting, and life changing for our family.

So glad to hear Molly's digging her big girl bed! Love her shirt!

At our church, when folks are baptized, they say, "Jesus Christ is my Lord and Savior" and it gives me chills every single time!

Ooh, excited to hear about your great news!!!

I too feel so blessed that my children will grow up knowing about the Lord and hearing often how awesome He is and what it means to have a personal relationship with Him. I don't think there is much sweeter than hearing a child recite a bible verse from memory or singing about how Jesus loves them. SO precious!

How wonderful that Molly sleeps in her big girl bed so well...I'm dreading that moment with my daughter. I told my hubby I will keep her in her crib as long as possible...like until she's married maybe ;) Ha!

Funny that when we have big news we have to emphasize that 'no I'm not pregnant' haha. Yay on the success so far with her big girl bed.
Love the deals at Target. Got tons of pants for Bella the other day for a buck and two bucks. Hello!!!
