Mariah - 11 weeks old

Well, it seems that Mariah has officially taken over my blog. She is definitely a point of interest as far as the camera is concerned! I will try to be a bit more diverse in future days, but for now, here is more Mariah!
Squeaky clean after her bath and chatting to daddy.

I really like these cloth diapers that we are using. This one that she is wearing is the Bum Genius brand and they are so easy to use! Love, love, love them!

And down below we have a picture of the cute outfit that the Sahlstroms bought for her! I can't believe how quickly she is growing into things! I just tried this outfit on a few weeks ago and it was way too big! But now...
...she fills it out nicely!
(that's the politically correct way of saying she is getting chubby!!)

So my most recent struggle is getting up early like the Proverbs 31 woman. I know, she is crazy perfect but it's a goal, right? So the last two mornings, I have somehow managed to get up early enough to read my devotions in the morning before Mariah wakes up and it makes such a HUGE difference in my day. I really gotta do that more! I don't know why it's so easy to forget what a privilege it is to meet with the King of Kings each morning. And that He actually WANTS to meet with me! Wow...what a nincompoop I am sometimes!

I've been a nincompoop lately too! Classes get me all tuckered out, been staying up too late studying. But good news Melanie, when Mariah becomes a teenager, she will sleep in again and it will be easier to be up first for devotions! I now go to sleep before my girls and get up before them. Definitely a house of teens. Thanks for the reminder of morning times with the King of Kings, it does start the day aright!
