    Headband hair!! Why is it only precious on babies?!?!? Especially this one! It did dawn on me that she might have her Bibby's hair!! It may never do "small" again! What a blessed baby! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Only too true in terms of reality isn't it? My two look pretty cute Sunday morning, but if we go out for lunch- the dresses and faces get totally covered with all manner of stains! Thank heavens for oxiclean.

    I remember a line of the the lyrics from Amy Grant's song " I love you" off of Unguarded- "Oh to stay your princess, if I only could. If you never saw the rotten, only saw the good." I guess that's still the longing of all of our hearts from adults to little girls as we dress up on Sunday morning. Thankfully God still sees us as his princess however we look- both the before and the after! Thank you Lord!

    Thanks for sharing a little reality with us, Amanda! ๐Ÿ™‚

    It was raining here Sunday AM. My umbrella had sprouted legs and walked away so I grabbed a lined windbreaker to cover my head. By the time I got into church my hair looked like Annabeth's "after".

    Annabeth has innocence in those eyes…..but they also say "catch me if you can"!! Almost reminds me of the stories of her Aunt Melissa!

    With an older brother that is all boy, it will be interesting to see the personality of this girl.

    Just as cute as she can be….you are going to have a lifetime of fun and challenge….get ready for a fun ride!!

    That is why my child wears $10.00 princess costumes to church most Sundays.

    Add in Kool-Aid and donuts to the mix and it's a dangerous place for smocked dresses.

    Awww.. you make me miss my babies!!! They grow UP sooo fast!

    She's beautiful! So's her mommy! And so is her precious big brother!

    Wonder, Amanda, if God doesn't take snapshots that He loves to capture in a Heavenly Album of His Own of His girls (and guys) in their "Son-day Best"… looking to Him as just beautiful!!!

    Wouldn't you just love to see His album?

    Hugs! And enjoy your Heavenly Blessings!

    Hey Amanda/Beth I'm sure you all have been filled in by Melissa, but I wanted to ask if you all would do a prayer for GA because of the terrible flooding so the sisesta could pray as well.
    Thanks so much
    Love Christi,

    Totally!! Why does it always look like they've been through a war when they get out of the nursery?? So funny though, my daughter's hair is always a mess too ๐Ÿ™‚ And she usually smells like the perfume of whoever held her!
