I took this picture at Ryleigh's 2nd birthday party. She didn't feel well, but in my opinion, she is as adorable as ever!

I'm feeling so blessed this morning! Ryleigh is in her crib, winding down for a nap and she is "singing" a couple songs she made up..."Jesus Name Jesus Name...Jesus Jesus Name" I LOVE it! The other one is to the same tune but the words are "Praise the Lord, Praise the Lord, Praise the Praise the Lord!"  How precious is that? Reminds me of the scripture "Train up a child in the way he should go..." 

A couple of days ago, Ryleigh, Daddy & myself were all in the same room. Daddy and I were busy, our minds elsewhere. Ryleigh sneezed and no one said anything. Totally put out, she said, "Daddy, I NEED a bless you!". Daddy said, "Oh, bless you Ryleigh!" "Sanks Daddy". LOL Love it!

She says the sweetest things. She is beyond intelligent...a fact agreed upon by her DR and nurse...and of course all our family members. LOL She's only been 2 for a few weeks but can count to 12, says most of the alphabet, knows where she lives and her full name, knows the sounds of at least 15-20 animals, puts her own shoes on the right feet and before she was 2, decided she'd like to use the potty instead of her diaper! Woohoo! lol She can tell you who the first president was, identifies school buses (a YELLOW school bus, Mommy!), semi-trucks, fire trucks and trash trucks. Says chugga chugga choo choo when she sees a train. I could go on and on and on. LOL She keeps us hopping!

She loves Sunday School. Loves Jesus. Loves her pastor, Bro. Mooney. She loves to pray. Talks in complete sentences and her reasoning skills are astounding! Did I mention she JUST turned 2?? 

Without a doubt, God has blessed us with Ryleigh Ema Jane!
