My family loves to celebrate birthdays, so they have been bugging me like crazy to celebrate it! We were in the hospital over my real birthday and anniversary, and with all that was happening I just couldn't bare to celebrate either one. I didn't care if they gave me gifts. I would have preferred if the day had passed by unacknowledged this year, but my family would not let me get away with that. So last night I finally did it, and our family had a blast getting together. Usually when we all get together at Mimi's house the grandkids bring their p.j.s so that they can all take a bath together. Last night I took Magdalena's so that she could participate in the fun of it all! We got pictures of all five grandkids in the bathtub together. They have so much fun, and in the picture everyone is smiling, even sweet Magdalena enjoyed being in the water. Caroline, Magdalena's oldest cousin, did a fabulous job holding her. She understood the responsibility and enjoyed it! My heart swelled up that Magdalena could be a part of this special moment, and when I saw it happening I knew that this would be one of those moments that I will always remember. Because of the girls' ages I didn't want to post this picture. However, I had to show you Magdalena's expression while in the tube with her cousins, so I cropped her head out for you to see it.
Look at that face! You can tell that she is having fun!
Magdalena has been looking forward to her time to snuggle with Loli.
Landon and Magdalena after taking a bathGigi rubbed Magdalena's leggs with lotion, and she loved it!
Magdalena's first time to have her nails clipped! Isn't Gigi doing a great job?
Look how pretty!! Magdalena's great-grandmother's friend made this dress for her!
And Mimi gave her this bonnet that matches it perfectly!
Also, Noah and I want to use this blog in any way to help show Christ's love through the unique, special life of our daughter. We have made little cards to pass out so that when someone asks questions about her we can easily share her story, and through this tiny little one they can see how big our God truly is. If Magdalena has ever been used in a conversation to share Christ or just to love on someone and you would like some of these little cards, please, email me your address and I would love to send some to you.
Here is a pic of what they look like...
