This post is all about my dear sweet precious big baby girl! Oh how I love my daughter! She is growing up way to fast for this post pardem hormonal momma! ;)
Spicer Beth is Full. Of. It! She is one big huge bundle of personality! From the moment she wakes in the morning until the time she shuts her eyes for the night she is one busy busy bee! Each morning when she wakes she says, "Mommy, did you have a good night night?" I love this because this is what I have asked her each morning since she began conversing and now she asks me! So so sweet! We are one busy family these days with keeping her involved and active. On Mondays she takes a gymnastic class. On Tuesdays and Thursdays she goes to preschool for part of the day and on Wednesdays we go to bible study fellowship together. Spicer loves going to preschool! She has made a great friend at preschool named Madison. We are finding that she is quite the little "follower." If her friend does something then she usually does the same thing! It's cute until her friend does something she isn't supposed to! ha! We are working on this little personality trait. We are striving to teach her to be a leader and do what's right no matter what. Jared and I are like, "man, you have to teach them everything!" ha! Who'd a thought! lol!
SB loves loves loves her baby brother! Now, don't get me wrong, she does have her ornery moments with him but what sibling doesn't?! Axl adores his big sister too! There have been times that Axl has been crying and I couldn't calm him down but SB could! He just smiles, talks and laughs at her! I have to admit this has been my greatest joy as a parent thus far... seeing the two of them love on each other and interact.... it's just sooo precious and such a blessing from God!
God is teaching me so much about motherhood through Spicer. She has such a strong willed, spunky free spirit and my sweet Savior is helping me, by the power of His Holy Spirit, be a better mommy to her. Every stage of development for her is a new stage in motherhood for me. I guess it's a first for both of us! I'm so thankful that she is forgiving and still loves me when I mess up. She's the best daughter I could ever ask for!
Jared and SB have been playing some fun games lately. Since I had Axl SB has wanted to play hospital almost every day with Jared. He is the doctor and she is having a baby. She also has an older child who she calls big sister. The baby she is "pregat" with is named Charlie. I crack up every time I watch them play. Jared asks her is she has high blood pressure and she says, " yes, like my mommy." lol!! She always sticks a baby in her shirt for the game! Before Jared "delivers" the baby he prays with her and says, "Are you ready to have this baby?" My oh my! Hilarious! After she "delivers" the baby she asks "Dr. Jared" to take the baby to the nursery. I'm telling you, it is hilarious! Spicer and Jared have always danced together but lately SB has been wanting to break it down even more! She likes for Jared to turn his radio on fast music and she dances to it outside. And let me tell you, this girl can dance! :)
Spicer is loving choir and cubbies. I'm helping out with both this year so she can be a part. She just loves singing to her choir CD in the car. She has also learned some songs at preschool that she loves to sing. I absolutely love hearing her sweet voice sing! Oh and she learned the pledge of allegiance at preschool one day! love that one too! :)
Well... these are just some recent happenings in the life of my sweet Spicer. Things daddy and I don't want to forget! Oh and one more thing... I also love at night when we are in bed. She says, "Have a good night night mommy, I love you!" precious, precious! I'm sure there are many many more wonderful things about my daughter right now but these are just the ones that popped into my head. God is good!
