A Good Big Sister!

Isabella loves her little sister! It is so sweet to watch her. As she grows, I want her to always look after and care for her sister. Here is a short clip.

I came across this little tid-bit today while browsing through a Real Simple magazine...


The yearly salary a 2012 stay-at-home mom would earn (that is, if she were paid), as determined by the career-advice website Salary.com. The income was calculated by combining the average wages, plus overtime, for the jobs a mom typically performs, including laundress, janitor, driver, cook, facilities manager, psychologist, and CEO (of the household). The results also showed that the average stay-at-home mom works a grueling 94.7-hour week and would make an average of $22.94 an hour.

Now, thanks to our husbands and the washing water of the Word, the joy of motherhood far outweighs any pay but it is interesting that the spirit of this age wants to belittle mothers who stay home and have never "had a job". Oh really??

My Little Flower

Here are some other pictures of my dear sweet Violet. She's just over a week old and has already changed so much. She is such a peaceful baby! Quite different from my wonderful Isabella. God makes each of them so different and so special. I'm very thankful and blessed.

Our New Precious Gift

Violet Louise Hicks was born on October 1 at 8:02pm. 
She weighed 6 lbs. 14 oz. and was 18 3/4'' long. 
She is such a special gift to our family. We love her very much!  

And they brought unto him also infants, that he would touch them: but when his disciples saw it, they rebuked them. But Jesus called them unto him, and said, Suffer little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God. Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child shall in no wise enter therein. 
Luke 18:15-17
