Too Cute...Tuesday!


Here is a little story and some pictures for your too cute Tuesday. While my little boy (Ezekiel) was over a year old and I started following Baby be Blessed, I completely fell in love with the dolls, animals & crowns. However being a wife of a Medical Student it was really hard to do an order for my family. But I became a blog follower and admired the products and entered into EVERY giveaway. One time BbB just did a giveaway based on if you were a follower. Well I was one and I was wonderfully surprised when I got the e-mail that I won the giveaway. It was the pink lamb and at the time I only had a little boy, and my family wasn't even thinking about adding another baby into the mix just yet. But I did hold onto that Lamb due to the fact either if I didn't have a girl I was pretty sure I would have a friend that was having a girl and would be able to "bless" another family. I ended up getting pregnant 6-8 months after I won that little pink lamb. I waited very patiently (by the way) to have the ultrasound and see if we were going to be blessed with a little girl to give that lamb to or would I be blessing another family. It turned out we would be buying pink and purple for our 2nd child...we were having a girl! I thought about that lamb on that day. That little lamb came to the hospital with us. I have recently started to take pictures of our baby girl (Aspen) and her little lamb. :) Here are a couple pictures for your viewing pleasure. Thanks so much! I have so enjoyed your blog, your passion, your vision. Katrina Rapp

Your story is so very sweet, Katrina!

God knew didn't He.... =)

"May the God of hope fill you will all joy and peace as you trust in him."
Romans 15:13

This is my prayer for all of us today. Trusting is H-A-R-D! At least it has been for control-freak me! =) The Lord knew what I needed to go through and I finally opened my heart to trust Him. I am still learning daily...but I can honestly say that trusting God does fill you with "all joy and peace". When I start feeling messy and out of sorts (like I have over the past few weeks) that is a good indication that I might have a lack of trust issue going on....I try and pick things up and fix them myself. But praise God for His love, grace and mercy! Praise God for His Holy Spirit always working things out in His perfect way because He loves us so!!

As I was looking through the scripture patches for our giveaway this heart rejoices in this truth! May we each trust in Him and expect to be filled!

Yay...Free SATURDAY!

Better late than never right?!

Yesterday slipped away with busy preparation of a dual Birthday celebration this evening!

My Oldest and Youngest eight years and 7 days apart and since each of their birthday's land on a Wednesday this year, we decided that we would join them together for one big birthday bash!
So to be honest, all the cake making and potato/pasta boiling yesterday took precedent over all else. But this morning I thought, oh well...missing one week won't hurt (which I know it wouldn't) but it is a privilege to give to all of you each week. As I mentioned Thursday,"It is more blessed to give than to receive" Acts 20:35 -and it is SO TRUE!

This week another $56 Baby be Blessed Gift Certificate is up for grabs!

Give a Blessing to the Addy Grace Foundation!


This month through Give a Blessing
we are supporting the Addy Grace Foundation (AGF). 

The Addy Grace Foundation (AGF) is a nonprofit organization focused on raising awareness of Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) and helping diagnosed families until THE cure is found. AGF was started by James and Jennifer Garner in honor of their daughter, Addison Grace. Addy was born perfectly healthy November 30, 2008. At her 4 month checkup her Pediatrician noticed that she was not reaching many of her developmental milestones and sent her to see a Pediatric Neurologist. On her 5 month birthday the Garner's worst nightmare came true when they received her diagnosis of SMA Type 1.

The mission of AGF is to build relationships and be a source of encouragement to children and families influenced by SMA.

What is SMA?
Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) is a motor neuron disease. The motor neurons affect the voluntary muscles that are used for activities such as crawling, walking, head and neck control, and swallowing. It is a relatively common "rare disorder": approximately 1 in 6000 babies born are affected, and about 1 in 40 people are genetic carriers.

SMA affects muscles throughout the body, although the proximal muscles (those closest to the trunk of one’s body - i.e. shoulders, hips, and back) are often most severely affected. Weakness in the legs is generally greater than in the arms. Sometimes feeding and swallowing can be affected. Involvement of respiratory muscles (muscles involved in breathing and coughing) can lead to an increased tendency for pneumonia and other lung problems. Sensation and the ability to feel are not affected. Intellectual activity is normal and it is often observed that patients with SMA are unusually bright and sociable. Patients are generally grouped into one of four categories. The determination of the type of SMA is based upon the physical milestones achieved. It is important to note that the course of the disease may be different for each child.

Would you join us?
I can only ask the question and pray for God to move your hearts.  We desire God to use Baby be Blessed as a vessel to help others.  That we would be an instrument in God's work.  Would help us?

Here's how...

~SEEK Be still and pray. How does God want to use you?

~PRAY! Visit their website and let them know you are praying!

~DONATE! Every penny adds up to make a difference!! Give your lunch money today!  If you can only donate a few dollars -PLEASE do so!!

~SPREAD THE WORD!! Grab a copy of the chipin widget below and place it on your blog/website!!  Tweet about it!  Facebook about it!  Be vessels!  Allow God to work through you!

We will be committing this month to prayer for The Addy Grace Foundation and are asking for your financial help to meet the needs of these sweet children.

Again...would you please join with us?

Too Cute Tuesday!

Dear Baby Be Blessed team,

My daughter, Ella Grace, received her first Baby Be Blessed doll on her third birthday this past October. I knew she would love her but I never expected the attachment she has developed with her doll! She adores her and has named her Pony…carrying her everyone she goes and mothering her as well. For Christmas Ella received the boy doll, Louis from her Mamaw (my mom) and now her girl doll has a playmate…which as sometimes she counts as Pony’s brother and other times as a “good husband”…ha! This picture was taken when my daughter opened Louis on Christmas Eve….she was beyond excited and kept saying “mamaw, I sure do love what you got me”. It was priceless and pretty much brought tears to my eyes that night and again as I type this. Your dolls are beautiful and a unique keepsake that me and my daughter will forever treasure. Thank You.


To God be the Glory!
~thank you so much for sharing!

Isaiah 43:18-19

I've got the fever! Spring Fever that is!! I've been filling containers with fresh dirt and planting bulbs and grass seeds.

I keep watching. Have they broke through the earth? How much have they grown?

It's so refreshing to me in the long months at the end of winter to watch something new spring forth!

New Life! God's faithfulness!

This morning the kids and I were sitting around the table. They were eating their fruit loops as I was reading from the book of Joshua. We commented how tall the Paperwhites on our table had gotten! They were all standing tall. For days we could see the blooms forming in the buds.

After the big kids left for school and loads of laundry were started and first round of dishes were stacked in the dishwasher, round two of breakfast comes down the steps. He wakes with his mouth open for food and as he is rubbing his still sleeping eyes, asks for breakfast the same way he does every morning. "Milk in a bowl, with cereal and a spoon!" and then with a reminder "Please". So we get out the bowl and pour the cereal and the milk. He chooses the biggest spoon in the drawer (again, like always) and drops it in the trunk of his tricycle and rides on over to his spot at the table. We fold the hands and we pray a prayer of thanks.

It's then I see it.

The blooms that were forming tight in the buds...had burst out! Just earlier they were closed tight and now had burst open. Like they just couldn't be held in any longer!

This year, I am committing to memorizing two scripture verses a month. Now this has been nothing short of answered prayer because though I can remember a face from ten years ago...I can't even remember my own children's names half the time. I've always used that excuse as to not memorize scripture....because my memory is TERRIBLE!

But through prayer, discipline and the empowering of the Holy Spirit, God has allowed me to memorize His word and remember it! I praise Him!!

So when I saw these blooms my first thought is "It's bursting out!" from Isaiah 43:18-19, which is the very first scripture I have memorized this year.

"Forget about what has happened;
don't keep going over old history.
Be alert, be present.
I'm about to do something brand-new.
It's bursting out!
Don't you see it? There it is!
I'm making a road through the desert,
rivers in the badlands" Isaiah 43:18-19, MSG.

This verse has spoken so much to me. God has walked me through each portion. For awhile it was the first sentence. I would repeat it over and over to myself...retraining my mind. Then He has been working on me with the Be alert, be present. Boy was I NOT present. Then I needed to trust in what He was telling me. I'm about to do something brand-new, and isn't He always when we are abiding in Him? But today His words bursting out...just struck me through the beauty of this bloom!

If we trust and believe who He really is and what He says is really true, we will be watching. Because His goodness, beauty, love, grace and perfect will -IS BURSTING OUT! Do we see it?

There it is!!
