Lydia Turns 1; Pictures from this Morning

"Behold, children are a heritage from the LORD,The fruit of the womb is a reward."

Psalm 127:3

Lydia Joy Wassenberg: 8th child, 4th sister, precious and beautiful gift from God. Those are 4 ways to describe her, though I could list so many more. Every day she's lived she has brought us overwhelming Joy and lots of smiles. Seeing her precious face every day light up as she hugs her "baby", eats her food, etc. is just some of the proof that the Lord made children to be a blessing, and not a curse. How could you not want as many as the Lord would bless you with? Why stop these abundant blessings?


Here are a few pictures this morning of her as she woke up. Enjoy!

Waking up with bunches of smiles! :)

This is one of my favorites.

It was Caleb's "turn" to get Lydia this morning (yes, we have turns on getting her up from her naps because we all love getting her!).

Going downstairs.

Saying "hi" to everyone at the breakfast table.

Going to see Mama.

I made a little "Snapshow" (a.k.a. Snapfish slideshow) of her. (I must warn you that the pictures are not organized very well because I had made the entire slideshow up - the organized one - and then I lost it somehow so this was a quick rendition of the first one) You can go view it at

Below are some random pictures I took of her this week:

Mama said that as soon as she started to walk we could put a dress on her every day. Well, she's close to walking so we've started putting dresses on her as often as we can! :)

Riding on her little car (which was Josiah's a few years ago! )

We love you, Lydia!

Overjoyed to belong to Jesus,


P.S - Tonight we're throwing a family birthday party in her honor with the meal being a turkey, mashed potato and buttermilk roll dinner! Red velvet cake is her dessert, home-made with love by her siblings - sure to be yummy!! (she didn't get to pick!).
