I am so far behind in my blogging.  Here’s some of what you’ve been missing:017

We went to Tulsa for Labor Day Weekend.  Matt, Randi and Kenley came to town for a visit.  Claire LOVED spending time with her cousins!

We had some professional pictures taken of our whole family while we were all together.

This past weekend, Claire got to take her first bubble bath in Mommy’s big tub.  So many bubbles!  So much fun!149


Last night Claire put on her apron and baked her first batch of brownies!  They were delish!183


And then my camera battery died, so I wasn’t able to take any more pictures of her cooking, licking the spoon, etc., but it sure was cute!

And that brings me back to the title of today’s post – Awestruck!  I am completely and totally blown away by God’s goodness!  I wasn’t really sure I’d ever get married.  Of course, I wanted to be married and loved and have someone to grow old with, but I wasn’t sure I would ever find the right man.  But this morning I was awakened with a kiss from the man of my dreams.  I had someone look me in the eye about three years ago and tell me that I’d never hear anyone call me Mommy.  But I’ve already had Claire call me Mama several times today.  My life – my ordinary, housewife, mommy life – is amazing!  It’s better than I ever dreamed it would be.  I am married to the most amazing man who loves me so completely and extravagantly.  I am Mommy to the sweetest, most beautiful little girl.  I am blessed.  I am loved.  I am happy.  I am awestruck!

Nothing makes a Mom and Dad happier than to know their baby is truly happy and has the life they always dreamed of. What a blessing!
