So we are just a few days away from celebrating Julia's 2nd Easter and it has got me thinking of how fast this year has gone by and how much my little girl has grown and changed. Last easter she was almost 4 months old. She was just this cute little smiling baby girl with more hair than I knew what to do with. In the last year she has learned so much. How to sit up, how to crawl, how to stand and then walk. Back then I couldnt wait to hear how her little voice would sound when she started talking. Now she always has something to say:) She is running around the house like she runs the place(she kind of does)!! It amazes me how smart she is. She is picking up new words almost everyday. I love coming home from work and hearing....MAMA.....with a big smile on her face! It is the best feeling:)
This last year has been such a trial for Julia and I that I have commited myself to making the best out of everything and every situation. I want to enjoy and cherish every moment I can with Julia right now, I dont want to look back and regret letting this situation hinder me from enjoying this gift that God has blessed me with.
Anyway back to Easter. Well, this year we have a lot of fun planned for the little bug. Saturday we are going to do her first egg coloring session, what fun and what a mess:) Sunday after church we are going to spend the day at my Aunts house with the rest of the family. I love getting together with family and being surrounded by people that love and care about Julia and I. I have felt some rejection from family lately and that hurts quite a bit so I feel the need to be with family that i have no doubt want the best for us. We are going to put together a small easter egg hunt for the kids, it will be Julia's first:) I am excited to see how she does. Well I hope everyone has a wonderful Easter. Lets not forget what Easter is all about. Jesus Christ has Risen!!!

Sorry for the lack of updates....life with busy with my little Noelle!!
As you some of you know Robert and I have been seperated for almost a year now and things just arent improving, so that been a busy and exhausting task. But please keep praying that the Lord would grab ahold of his heart and convict him to want to bring his family back together. That is my prayer as I wait and as I continue to raise my daughter in the ways of the Lord.
This little girl of mine continues to amaze me and I am so thankful to God for such a healthy and happy child. She loves to sing and dance and her favorite movie right now is Baby Mcdonald by Baby Einstein. She has been a baby einstein fanatic since she was about 6 months. She watches them in such content and calmness, its a nice break for mama and such a great learning tool for her. She tries repeat the words now and sing the songs. We also have flashcards and books that help develop her vocabulary. She is so smart it blows my mind sometimes. She has crayons for both paper and the tub and I try to help her draw her name. Now whenever she sees letters anywhere, she starts to try and spell her name, in the wrong order of course....j.....i.....lol.....i love it!
This has been a tough year for my little family, but I am dedicated to making sure that my daughter has nothing but love and positivity around her. It has been my effort especially recently to surround myself and my child with people that love us, support us and are there for us. It has been difficult for me as a wife and as a woman to feel like my husband and the father of my child does not desire to have our family together and whole again. It is my goal and mission to make sure Julia knows how much she is loved and cared for. That regardless of her fathers feelings and actions there are so many people in her life that love her and desire to make her happy that he is the one missing out, not her. God has really shown me a lot these past few months especially. I need to continue to put my faith and trust in him, that he knows whats best for me and my daughter and that I am to give him thanks in ALL circumstances.
Hope everyone is doing well. I posted some recent pics of the my little bug. Enjoy:)
More posts to come hopefully tomorrow. Julia's First Trip to Disneyland!!!!
