I can't believe that in a few short hours my baby girl is going to be turning 2! (I am posting this a little early as we will be getting in the car at about 6 am to head to New York). I truly don't know where the two years has gone. It seems like just yesterday we received that call at 9:30 at night and would be seeing this sweet little 6 lb 2oz baby less than 48 hours later. At that time we weren't sure if we would be seeing blue or pink as the agency decided it was a good time for a surprise! Gretchen simply told us to have a boys name and a girls name by the next morning for the papers to be completed
Sara, you are your daddy's princess and one of the three most beautiful blessings I have ever received. You are well protected by your daddy, your brothers, and your papa; all who you have gently got wrapped around your finger; but mostly by your Heavenly Father. I love to see your smiling face, hear your laugh, and the pitter patter of your feet. You are so sweet and already have such a sensitivity that is blooming; from those precious words you say "let's pray", "God Bless You." and when you nightly hand me your Bible and say, "read momma, read!" You also have become very independent which is a good thing, most of the time. There are times that I wish you would allow others to help you but you normally want to try it on your own first. One of those times, not so long ago when you decided that you weren't' going to sleep in a crib any longer; it brought both sadness and joy. Sadness that my baby is growing into a little girl, and joy with the smile of accomplishment and pride of another milestone.
We love you sweet girl and you will always be our baby girl!
