Today at 4:30 AM I decided to get Mommy up to change my diaper ... three times... and we ended up falling asleep on the floor together. Aunt Melly and Papa came by to say their goodbyes... they had to fly back to Texas today. Auntie Juli came to say goodbye too.. she cried lots because she's going back to Florida. Pastor Jon and Amy came by to see me and bring us dinner. Ms. Amy stole one of my new diapers! She said she was going to show everyone because it was smaller than her camera! Mom's friend Judy from Delaware sent us homemade outfits - so me and my brothers all dressed up like cowboys! It's the first time that any clothes were a little too small for me - they were designed for a 15" doll! The pants fit great - they're just like my big brothers' - the shirt was just a wee too small though... Mommy got on the phone with Ms. Judy to make corrections for future outfits!
"For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be."
