ruthie is one.

November 14, 2014

welp. our little amazing wonderful stinkpot girl is one. i know it’s been said a million times by a million mothers, but i’ll dare to be redundant. this year flew byfaster than i remember it whizzing by with felix. (who will be FOUR next month. i never imagined having a child over the age of three.) she has become this breath of fresh air that is often disguised as a tornado. but the air is still there whether it be quickly moving or not.

she has challenged me. to be better. to be kinder. to be bold. to be the things that i pray everyday she will grow into being. she has been a constant reminder that we girls are wired to feeland we feel and we feel and we feel. i’m learning to embrace that. but at the very same time to gently remind myself that i can’t trust my emotions. because that will make the ugly a monster. i can only trust the truth of the holy spirit and thank the lord for his mercies.

i could go on and on because it’s easy to write about something you wrestle with everyday. well sorta easy. whatever. but let’s look at random pictures from ruthie’s birthday party instead, ok? oh. and i have to tell you. it’s like she woke up and just knew that it was her day to party. she ate it all up. especially the attention.
