Happy Birthday Caroline!

I prayed for this child and the Lord has granted me what I asked of Him. 1 Samuel 1:27

Dear Caroline,

It is your third birthday, Mommy can hardly believe it.  This Mommy who does not cry often has tears in her eyes just thinking about it.  You are so very special to me.  You were a surprise that almost wasn't, a testament of God's incredible power, a contributor to more than one of your Daddy's gray hairs I'm afraid!  You came to us in your time and on your terms.  You are beautiful.  You are sweet.  You are determined.  You are smart.  You are fearless.  You are a joy to me, an answered prayer and a daily reminder that God is good...all the time.

I am so thankful to be your Mommy.  I love watching you grow and develop your little (BIG) personality. You make me laugh, smile and cry...sometimes all at the same time.  I love your hugs, your kisses, your smacks, your pats...I love it when you think about something and say, "Well let me think..." I love your big blue eyes.  I LOVE YOU. 

I pray you will grow into a woman of grace.  I pray you will come to know God as your Savior, not just your heavenly Father.  I pray you will always be as kind, generous and compassionate as you are now.  I pray your desire to help others develops into a servant heart.  I pray, even now, that God will send you a husband as wonderful as your Daddy one day...who loves the Lord with all his heart...who will respect and honor you.  I pray God will bless you and others through you. 

Mommy loves you with all my heart, all my hair and all my knee knee knee knees :-).  Always and Forever.

My Baby Girl

Three...can it be that it has been three years since I was at the hospital almost every day  prior to  Dr. Logan deciding it was time to meet this precious angel?  Has it really been three years since our family of three became a family of four?  Has it really been THREE years??????  What a blessing she is to our family...
Here are a few pictures from her first couple of years...
