The beautiful girl on the left is our Lou Lou (sorry, most our of pics have more than 1 person in them!)
We were blessed by Lou's arrival April 17th, 1998. She was 10 days overdue and weighed in at 10 lbs 2 ozs. Yes, that cute little thing was a 10 pound brutus.
Lou Lou is our gymnast. She is starting Level 7 now. She can do all kinds of flips and crazy things that make a Mommy's heart skip a few beats. Nothing can compare to watching your child TUMBLE ON A BEAM! I don't breathe for 1 minute 30 secs. That is how long her routine is. I do feel the need to report to you that Lou just finished her Level 6 season, and is the State Champion on Vault! She will not appreciate me telling you, but I knew you want to know! She had impressive showings on all events and ended up 4th place all-around, not bad at all!
Lou is a daredevil, thrill seeker (be still, my heart). She has the most tender heart you've ever run across. Her prayers for a full year after watching a Newscast on Ghana, is what has brought us to the point of adopting. She won't stop until we have 17 children. That has always been her goal. Lou loves Chik-fil-a (who doesn't), gum, cokes (my fault- I'm an addict), making babies and children laugh, having friends spend the night, jumping on the trampoline, and most of all, snuggling on the couch. She does not like lunch meat, discord, smiling with her teeth, or being alone. Lou was our baby for 7 years, and though she adores her younger sisters, she still believes that my lap is her 'spot'. I'm just fine with that!
Lou Lou is pleasant, hard working, and loving. She is a straight A student, and is well liked by everyone that comes in contact with her. We are very proud of her. She is our joy and peace.
Lou's life verse:
Rejoice in the Lord always.
I will say it again: Rejoice!
Let your gentleness be evident to all.
The Lord is near.
Do not be anxious about anything,
but in everything by prayer and petition,
with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding,
will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Philippians 4: 4-7
