Happy Birthday Lydia Beth

One Year Ago Today ...
Photos taken at early birthday party last week ...

Photo's taken today ... Happy Birthday Baby girl!


What a quick year it was! We were fairly overwhelmed when we learned there would be a lucky number 7 in our house ... we're still overwhelmed :) but more than that we are blessed and thankful for Lydia and her health and for the way God showed up in miraculous ways for her and for us this last year.

Announcement post here.
Slide show of Oct 4, 2007 here.

Thank you Lord for protecting Lydia through her crazy (and sometimes scary) first year of life - we pray protection and provision and your amazing love and grace on her today and always. Thank you for her life Lord.
Amen
.

Troy is hanging in there. He had a rough evening last night with very high fever and vomiting but today is a little better than yesterday. Thank you for your sweet words and prayers. He (and we all) appreciate it. Dengue sometimes brings a very intense itchy rash on day five or six, we're praying specifically that Troy won't have that symptom very bad or even at all. Jeronne and Tipap are off this weekend and we're just taking care of Troy and laying low at home. Thanks for checking in.
Peace-
Tara

HAPPY BIRTHDAY LYDIE B! We are so thankful you are here and HEALTHY! And we love all your cute photo faces :)

Where did the year go? Troy---PLEASE hook yourself up with morphine. You won't be less of a man for it. Four letters: CDTI

Say it isn't so. That first year goes by so fast.
We have been praying for Troy. Poor guy. It sounds awful.

Tara...
Please tell me that you, like I, have too many children to keep up with a high chair cover and know it is easier to "hose it off" than that you are a neat freak mom that removed it so she wouldn't stain it.

I'll love you even if you are a neat freak but I'm thinking you're more of a kid freak like me =)

ps...HaPpY BiRtHdAy BaBy GiRl!!

I had no idea that high chair ever had a cover ... used to be a neat freak when i had two kids ... I gave that up when we went to four - thank God, it was unrealistic anyway.

Yes, Sara has a Christmas album due out soon. But it will be available on her web-site according to her newsletter. Yes, I'm a HUGE fan, I do get the email newsletter!
And I DO live in the TC! St. Paulish, actually. So I'm one of your homies. Literally :)
