The Boys Are Coming!!!!


Our boys are coming for a visit. They are actually here, just off somewhere with their dad, so we haven't seen 'em yet. They are leaving first thing in the morning to hunt and Hattie is already in bed. Which means that she won't get to see 'em till they get back on Saturday. IF they get home before her bedtime. Otherwise she will have to wait til Sunday.

Have I mentioned how very much Hattie loves her big brothers?

Well, she loves them. Alot!

She calls Steven "Budder" and calls Chris "Kissy". She REALLY loves them boys!

So, here is how our dinner conversation went:

Me: Hey Boo, guess who is comin' to see you ... (she looks at me - as in EYE CONTACT!!!!) ... Budder is coming!

Hattie: BUDDER?!

Me: Uh Huh, and Kissy is coming!

Hattie: Kissy comin' ... and MINY-IE comin'? (Mindy is Budder's fiance)

Me: No, not Mindy this time. Just Budder and Kiss.

Hattie: Budder and Kissy ... WOO-HOO!!!!

So, this is AMAZING on soooooo many different levels. First of all, did ya catch that I mentioned eye contact? And I didn't even have bubbles or ice cream. I was just talking about Budder & Kissy. And that leads us to the 2nd big thing - she processed all of this enough to bring Mindy up all by herself! We have not seen Mindy for months! She put it all together! And the third biggie - the biggest biggie - this was a conversation people!

A conversation in which my baby girl listened, asked questions and showed emotion.

I am completely beside myself with joy. I cannot even BEGIN to express how much this touches my heart.
Please know that this would not be at all possible without your prayers. I am so very thankful. Please keep em coming - we have a long way to go, but this is absolutely HUGE!!!!

Thank you Sweet Lord for a glimpse into the heart of my little girl. I Praise you Father, for she is fearfully and wonderfully made and it is ONLY by Your amazing Grace that she is who she is ...
... and I wouldn't have missed this for anything!

3 of ya left some love:

That is so awesome!

Thanks for the congrats too- Are you ready for this though? Today, I have really been contemplating on just starting my masters right away instead of waiting. The best part is, I would start with one of my co-workers {who is awesome} and she is scheduled to start her program on May 20. YEP- that is in LESS than 2 WEEKS! I'm going to seriously think about it but I am leaning a bit towards just going for it. 1-1/2 years and I would be done. I'll keep you posted on the blog! Wish me luck....

This is my first visit here! I have so enjoyed my time. I do not know the story of your little girl, but I could tell by your post that this must have truly blessed your mothers heart. :-)
