Happy Birthday Faith!

Miss Faithlynn was One Year Old on Friday!  Wow, time flies when you are having fun!

Hospital Picture (February 11, 2011)
Faith has been such a blessing to our family full of boys.  We often catch ourselves wondering what life was like without her.  She is a funny and smart girl who is always entertaining us.  She absolutely adores her big brothers, and I think the feelings are mutual!  

Here a a few fun little facts about our little Faithlynn Grace:
  • She is quite the girly-girl and surprises us daily on how much she ‘knows how to be a girl.’  
  • Anything that resembles a scarf is quickly tossed around her neck and off she goes!  (I kid you not!!).  
  • She also loves to carry anything with a handle over her arm like a purse.  
  • She is very quick to give a cute little smile (or even a kiss) if she knows she’s doing something she’s not supposed to do! 
  • She loves all animals and will give an “ahhhhlll” if she sees a cat, dog, bird, etc.  If she sees a horse, she will rock back in forth, because she thinks all horses are 'rocking horses!'  
  • Unfortunately, she's learned how to take her shirt off, and will do so often to see what is on the front.  This is especially true if she has a kitty or birdie on the front of her shirt!  
  • She is usually quite the social butterfly and is very loud! 
  • Has recently started dancing in front of the TV when music comes on -- so cute~
She quickly mastered the art of walking at around 10 ½ months and is now in to running and climbing.  She has grown so quickly; it's almost sad.  She didn't stay a baby very long.

She will be such a big help and blessing when we bring Ellie home.  Although I’m anticipating some adjustment time between the two of them, I’m sure they will complement each other very well.  I pray that Faith’s outgoing personality will help ease Elliana into our busy life here at the Baxter house!  I imagine they each will have plenty of things to teach one another.  

Even though I wondered what in the world God was up to 19 months ago when I found out I was pregnant, I am totally in awe of  how He can do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine (Eph 3:20).  Remember – the day our pregnancy was confirmed was the same day Elliana was born!  (July 23, 2010).  

No one other than our Creator could have orchestrated that! 

Happy Birthday Sweet Girl!
