Sonidos Serranos

Sonidos Serranos: Sounds of the Sierras...
Reflecting some of my family's interests: God's wonderful creation (especially mountains and hills!), music, and language...

Psalm 121:1-2 (NASB)

I will lift up my eyes to the mountains;
From where shall my help come?
My help comes from the LORD,
Who made heaven and earth.

Mother's Day was especially wonderful this year. As I ponder the joys of real life with a little one eager to learn everything, my heart is overwhelmed with gratitude to God for entrusting our Precious Little Punkin Spice to us...

Some of the latest cute sayings and actions include:

"Carol is my little mess!" said while holding her close, proving that she understands "little mess" to be a term of endearment. I often say: "You're my favorite little mess!" (Christmas Carol, by the way, is the doll Tatá gave her at Christmas.)

I found a cute toddler step-ladder, painted with jungle animals, at Big Lots a couple weeks ago – the perfect size for climbing into a Big Girl Bed. Excited about the fact that it would match her room decor perfectly but not being too sure about the price, I decided to leave and pray about whether or not to get it. I went back later with Elizabeth and realized that the only one left was the one on display – and it had some bumps and scratches. The happy ending is that Big Lots Customer Service knocked off 33% – a real bargain I discovered later when doing a price comparison online! When we got home and set it up, Elizabeth jumped up and down and exclaimed: "I'm so glad I have a Dear Mommy!" (an obvious adaptation to my frequently saying: "I'm so glad I have a Dear Baby!")

When I picked her up at school on the Friday before Mother's Day, she couldn't wait to show me the project she had made for me. She pointed out details on her paintings and told me: "Sunday is Mother's Day! It's your day, Mommy!"

Her Daddy took her to Publix (our favorite grocery store) on the Saturday before Mother's Day to "decorate" a cake. I wish I would've sent the camera with them. She was very proud of the cake SHE had decorated – undoubtedly with the help of a very patient soul at the store!

Yes, I am very blessed!
