1. Little Chula is truly inspired.
Chula has learned her first word. Drum roll please.... JESUS! haha it's so sweet when she says it, and if I could choose any word for her to know first and to know well it would be this. Here's the story...
I'm sad to admit this, but Chris and I haven't really discussed Jesus with Chula. I've just assumed she was too little. So the other day we decided to buy her a large picture of Christ to hang on the wall above her crib. We ended up buying the red robed picture of Christ from the Distribution Center.
So when we got home I pinned up the picture of Christ and began to ask Chula "Where's Jesus"? I didn't expect her to know since she'd never been taught and since He'd never been discussed. She quickly turned around (180) and was fixated with the picture. She wouldn't stop starring. Obviously we hadn't discussed Christ with her, but she knew who He was.
Then the next day Chula was crying and I couldn't get her to calm down. I decided to show her the picture of Christ and once she got a glimpse of Him she became still.
There have been many instances similar to these since then. Now whenever she sees Him she waves and smiles. We found her a little picture of Him that she can carry around, and she loves it. I've often noticed her kissing the small picture over and over.
I feel I have a lot to learn from Chula's sweet spirit, and I feel so blessed to have her in my life.
2 & 3. Chula makes it on the blog... twice!
Two of my cousins got married over the holidays and Chula got her picture shot at both occasions. Both pictures of her made it onto 'The Blog'. What can I say, she's a trained poser (thanks to me). These two photos were taken by Izlas photography, and are found on their blog. I love the one of her with Pa. It's a nice juxtaposition of old and young, and it's such a precious moment captured.
