It's a Girl!

Genevieve Jennifer Dolar was born to us on February 13th, 2013.
 After years of wondering if we'd ever be able to afford to have another baby, God sorta said: "Here. Have one anyway." haha! She was truly a surprise to us, but some of the best things in life aren't planned! Her presence has filled a hole in my life, that I honestly thought would stay empty forever. It's a joy words can't express to finally be able to say the words "my daughter." God is far too good to me, I truly am blessed. 

My babies! This was taken the day after she was born.
She's a dream of a baby. She's been sleeping through the night since she was around 9 weeks old & is so calm & happy. After having 3 screaming non-sleeping boys, I feel like I'm being spoiled!! Her brothers can't get enough of her. They love watching her, talking to her, holding her & feeding her. My oldest, Dan Jr., often asks to watch her & he's becoming quite the babysitter! Of course, Daddy is completely in love. He said to me the other day: "Honey, I don't want to spoil her, but just want to give her everything!" We are truly blessed to have her in our lives. She has brought a breath of fresh air into our family. We all love her so much! 
Isn't she a doll?! This was at 4 weeks.

I can't wait to see what the Lord will do with her life & what sort of woman she'll become. I pray God will help me be the example of the Proverbs 31 woman that she needs in her life. I want to guider her as she grows. I want to teach her the ways of a godly woman & prepare her for her future life as a helpmeet. Life goes so fast & I feel like all of these things are coming right around the corner. And to some extent, they are! But, for now, I'll cherish this time and enjoy the snuggles, giggles & cooing.
