I Like Her.

Where did my baby go?
I wonder as I watch her
Long legs hanging down from the kitchen chair
Head bent over serious colouring concentration
Intent on staying within the lines

She used to sleep in my arms
With those big puffy baby cheeks sticking out
And I'd cover them with kisses
Before placing her in her crib
All soft, sweet baby goodness

Now it is different
Instead there is a routine of
"Mama, can we talk one minute?"
And bedtime is filled with questions and answers
And giggles and prayers filled with thoughts that make we smile
There are still lots of kisses
Though on cheeks not quite so chubby
And its her arms that wrap all the way around me

But its all a happy-sad
Because she's my girl
Who is learning and growing
And filling my world with joy
Just like she has everyday since I knew she existed
I like her
And all she is becoming
My baby turned girl.

Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward.
Psalm 127:3

Treasure it all...

Mine was baby, girl and now woman.
I cannot believe it and really do not know where the time has gone, except to say, away.
More to come though. It is different, but praise God there is still more!

Beautiful Gina! Along with being a loving mommy God has gifted you with an ability to put into words what many others can only feel. Thanks for using your Mommy Montage to be a blessing to others ...even to some of us who do not have our own children! :)

I love motherhood.

We're a smiling family.

I'm a covenant keeper.

I love my husband.

I am above self pity.

I am a nation builder.


Worth more than rubies.

“I am more convinced than ever that even in the midst of the mundane, burdensome, and oftentimes frustrating tasks of life allotted to me as a mother, God wants me to find his joy. He wants every single day of my life to be a celebration of his blessings, whether large or small. He wants me to celebrate life ~ the life He has given me.”

~ Sally Clarkson

My Hubby

My Hubby
He's my bestest.


She is my compassionate, dramatic, fun to be around 6 year old. She loves to shop, get dressed up fancy and anything else that screams girly!


She is my goofy, snuggly 4 year old who loves to sing and dance and smile all day long!


She is our one year old smarty pants! She does all she can to keep up with her older sisters and to keep them in line!
