Makes my Monday - my 5 year old Princess.

Playing along with Cheryl.

5 Years ago I held this little princess in my arms for the very first time. (you can read her birth story here). I was overwhelmed with the love I felt for this tiny little screaming person.

This morning I am in awe of the beautiful little girl she has become.

(Also 11/365)

Her sympathy for others warms my heart, her willingness to help thrills me and her creative imagination leaves me breathless. Her love for Jesus speaks to my soul and her sparkling personality makes me proud to be her mom.

She has developed so much this year and in just the last month three important milestones have been reached - she is now confident in water and jumping in at any chance - time to resume those swimming lessons. Her drawing work has also developed dramatically and she has now moved on from people to bugs, animals, etc. She is also now willingly praying to Jesus, not only the standard mealtime prayer, but also a bedtime one which she changes from day to day.

My sweet girl, mommy loves you to now end. You are truly my princess.
In news from the weekend, I had a huge fall from Shakala on Saturday - I am stiff and sore and on muscle relaxants, but I am fine - nothing broken. I was so very lucky (plus I know how to fall). It has been 8 years since my last fall so I guess I had it coming.

If you are here for the no-sew tutu post, I am sorry, I will have to do it later this week. The Lil Miss got an evening dress for my SIL and BIL for her birthday and therefore my model was unavailable for modelling the end result this morning - maybe later today. (See dress above)

And 10/365:

The fruit sauce Hunter made for yesterday afternoon's pork roast. It was delicious beyond words.
