Happy 8th Birthday Toots!

8 years ago I was in the recovery room ~ our family of 3 had just grown by 2 little feet.  It's hard to believe how fast time has gone by.  That precious 8 lb. 4 oz. bundle is now in 2nd grade and growing up too fast for the likes of Mom and Dad.  God has blessed us with a spunky, strong-willed, energetic, intelligent, compassionate daughter who loves Jesus and loves to dance, sing, and nurture her baby dolls.  I often find myself with a lump in my throat when I think of how fast she is growing up ~ sometimes I wish she was still that newborn wrapped in my arms.  Then I see her snuggled up in bed and am glad that she's growing up healthy and strong. 

I am so very lucky to be mommy to a daughter of the King of Kings.  He sent His princess to us and we are preparing her for the great plans He has in store for her.  These 8 years have flown by and I know that all too soon she will be ready to leave the nest.  With the strong foundation of faith we are helping her build, when she finds her wings she will soar!

Happy 8th Birthday Toots!  We love you too much!

  1. Don't think I've ever seen a baby pic of your dd. Totally looks like her! Sometimes baby pics don't look at all like who they turn out to be, you know? Hope she has a splendid 8th bday!
