Our Blessings

Makayla: Who is like God
Faith: To Trust
Trust, that was what the whole pregnancy with Kayla was about for me.
After having gone through the unexpected with Andrew I found myself leaning on the everlasting arms a lot during this time. 
There were many what ifs, many concerns, and right from the start I told Josh that if we had a girl her middle name would be Faith.
But there were also many answers to prayer, and a lot of rejoicing when 30 weeks came and went, and the baby hadn't come yet.
Each week that we made it was a victory, and then on Novemeber 10 2011, on her exact due date, she was born.
It was like God was saying, see, I am in total control!

Makayla's birth went very well, she was born at 4 pm and we were on our way home at 6 pm!
We picked up Andy from my parents and headed home.

The 1st birthday.
Since their birthdays are only 6 days apart we have always celebrated Andy and Kayla's birthdays together.
This year was at Grandma and Grandpa Penners house.
Fun fact, Kayla got her first doll, and she loved it, and she still loves dolls/babies, a lot!

Birthday #2
Kayla grew a lot the first 2 years, she was very mature for her age, and ever so independent!
Fun fact, Makayla became a big sister!

The 3rd Birthday.
Her independence makes her an amazing big sisters, and a wonderful help to me!
She sees things that need to be done and does them, with being told a lot of the time.
Fun fact, she's a daddies girl, and would do anything for her daddy!

And the 4th Birthday
Kayla started kindergarten, and did amazing! She learnt to read and write.
She loves to hang out with all her little friends, and made big steps in over coming her shyness.
Fun fact, she once agin became a big sister, this time to her forever best friend.

 Makayla, you are such a blessing to us, your servant heart and helpfulness are wonderful, I love to watch you with your baby sister, we love you girl!!
