Happy Birthday Lauren.....

A few years ago God blessed our family with a beautiful baby girl. And today that baby girl turned 3.  This is a post to my daughter, who I love more than words could ever express. 

I will never forget the moment that I laid eyes on you....being in complete awe that I was a mama to a little girl. God is using you in so many beautiful ways, moving my heart daily....I love watching you grow and I cherish the bond that you and I share. love pink....alot play with your babies everyday have a shoe fetish love to sing like to chew gum give each of your brothers a kiss every night...and they love it get excited when we get together with other little girls love to fold laundry are very nurturing pray more than any other one of our lovies can be emotional tell me that I'm pretty all of the time gave up your nucky today...finally (no more pacifier at bedtime) cut the tip off of your nucky and threw it in the garbage cried hard....and I cried with you like to have your nails of course love love love to be read to...and I love love love to read to you often end up in bed between Daddy and I enjoy going to Sunday School and church named one of your baby dolls "Noah" ask to "do school" like your big brothers are very loving and affectionate love to help me in the kitchen like to pick out your clothes and prefer little help with getting dressed have a wonderful imagination usually cry when I brush your hair want a baby sister love to play outside are quite a talker....always telling stories
.....your laugh is sweet love to be tickled love to talk on the phone love looking at photos....just like your mama are still a Daddy's girl always used to reply to "I love you" with "I love you too much" and Luke have a special bond...only being 15mos. apart often sit and pretend like you are reading a book still wear a bow or some kind of clip in your hair every day....we call it a "hair pretty" know what foods are healthy and which are not would never know you had two broken legs less than six months ago love Jesus run to the door every day when your Daddy comes home from work are a hugger and a snuggler...I love it! like to dance love it when Nate chases you love babies, always wanting to hold one that is even still try to hold Luke! love to draw and are proud of your art are loved more than you know. Not only from a family who adores you, but from a Heavenly Father who cares for you more deeply than any of us even realize. God has used you to strengthen my faith in many ways. Thank you for all of the times that you hold my hand and ask to pray with those moments it is hard to remember that you are only three.....I often well up with tears because of how you talk to God. Daddy and I are so thankful for you and we pray for you everyday sweet girl.

Happy Birthday Lauren
