Happy Birthday Baby Girl

Our daughter turned FOUR on January 8, 2012.

It's hard to believe.

I teared up yesterday as we were looking through pictures of her birth and after seeing this one, Ladybug pointed to Nathan's hand and said, Jesus. I suppose she thought it was Jesus holding her hand and after seeing all the events that took place four years ago, He sure was. We are so proud of our little miracle girl and how far she has come.

Our baby girl at 1 pound, 6 ounce: tough, a fighter, determined.

Now, a sweet & loving little girl who weighs 27 pounds. She enjoys giving great bear hugs and loves to hang from objects like a monkey. She loves to draw, talk, and play. Her favorite characters are Diego, The Little Mermaid, and Woody. She loves her daddy!

“Life is an opportunity, benefit from it.
Life is beauty, admire it.
Life is a dream, realize it.
Life is a challenge, meet it.
Life is a duty, complete it.
Life is a game, play it.
Life is a promise, fulfill it.
Life is sorrow, overcome it.
Life is a song, sing it.
Life is a struggle, accept it.
Life is a tragedy, confront it.
Life is an adventure, dare it.
Life is luck, make it.
Life is too precious, do not destroy it.
Life is life, fight for it.”
Mother Teresa
