Happy New Year, everyone!
To resume where I left off in December, we begin again our tale of life at the little Langemanns with pictures from Joy's second birthday, which was Dec 7, 2012.
And so, our second born turned two.
She's not yet at the age where birthdays are a big thing, but big sister Hope has that department covered very well. :o)
However, it was still special to celebrate Joy and have a day of thankfulness for her. Like a book we have says, "Princess Joy walks with a skip in her step. She is sunshine on a cloudy day." For all her unique and mischievous ways, she does generally have a song in her heart and on her lips, and although one cannot always discern the words because of toddler diction, she carries a melody very well, and I can usually figure out what song she is singing based on that. My mother-in-law tells me several of her children sang before they talked, and I would have to say that Joy is very much a Langemann in that way. She talks plenty too, mind you.
I am so blessed to be the mother of this child, and look to our Heavenly Father for how to raise her and help her flourish. She is a very active child, like she was in the womb, and her smile always cheers my heart.
Happy Birthday, Joy-Belle! You light up our home and our hearts!
