This past Sunday we celebrated Faith and Zori’s birthdays. It was actually Faith’s 3rd birthday. I cannot believe my first baby is 3! My beautiful Faith Hope Love has so much personality, she can hardly contain it in that little body. She is just as sassy, sweet, bossy, and sensitive as I am (I’m not as sweet though). Faith takes a while to show this side of herself, but once she warms up to you, watch out!
Rwenzori Grace will be 1 on October 22! It’s funny how much I see myself in all of my girls (poor Dane). Zori knows what she wants and she is just as impatient as me. We have been working on her screaming when there isn’t food in front of her fast enough. Other than that she is an extremely chill, go with the flow, baby. She has been walking since almost 10 months, so now she is practically running and trying to climb on top of everything. She got a nice cut and bruise over her eye, right in time for the party, by trying to climb on top of a 12pack of Cokes! Zori is trying hard to keep up with her big sisters so there is never a dull moment in our house. There was no way I was doing two parties in one month, especially while we are semi-homeless. We had the party at Squirrel Lake Park (amazing park if you have never been there) and it basically rained most of that morning. So I prayed that we would get a break in the rain and we did long enough for the party and it was dry enough for the kids to play also. It was perfect weather for chili, which is what we had along with many homemade pumpkin decorated desserts. I have to thank my amazing Mom(JaJa), mother-in law (BiBi), and aunt Lisa and uncle Max who helped cook and put everything together! Thanks to all our family and friends who came out to the party. The girls had a great time and Faith will probably continue to talk about it for the next year!
A quick update on all the Loves; we have been renting a house at JAARS for the past month and will be moving into my parents house next week while we continue to search for a home. I keep trying to remind myself that Home is where my family is and not the actual brick and mortar or vinyl siding that makes it like HGTV tries to tell us. That is easier said than done. I know wherever we end up is right where God wants us to be.
