Linking up with Cari for this slam dunk of a subject for Theme Thursday: Faith!
You can read more about Faith's arrival here, but let me tell you a few things about her here, as well.
Faith was aptly named, as her birth (and the days leading up to it) required much faith in God. I must have said "Jesus, I trust in You!" a million times in the 3 days preceding her birth.
Faith is a firecracker and a honey badger. She doesn't take "nothin' from nobody, no how!" and it is always clear where she stands on any issue pertinent to 3.5 year olds. We nicknamed her "Sassy" around 7 months old, when these tendencies first made their appearances. The name has stuck and she answers to both "Faith" and "Sassy" now.
Faith is also a sweetheart -- according to Kyle and to my dad. She yearns to help out her baby brother, even when it's not really "helping" and to "teach him things". She is very much a Daddy's girl, just like her big sister Maeve and uses this weakness of his to acquire many favors.
She is the perfect little sister for Maeve. Maeve, who waited 9.5 long years to have a "sister who would stay with me here on Earth", can talk Faith into any hairstyle or outfit. They also share the same shoe obsession and artistic talents.
Faith's godfather is her oldest brother, Killian, and he calls her by her middle name: Therese. Faith's godmother is Kyle's sister-in-law, Liz, who Faith calls "Aunt St. Liz"-- a fitting title for a godmother of a Honey Badger!
Faith's is a girly-girl and loves pink and princesses. She is big on etiquette and has been known to growl out "LADIES FIRST!" while kidney-punching Eamon when he dares to enter a room before she does.
We love our Faith and our faith!
