Happy Birthday Grace

My little girl is four years old today! I get so excited to see the new steps my girls take and to watch them grow up, but it also makes me so sad to see another year pass by. I'm not very good at letting my babies grow up. We had a wonderful day with Grace today and tried to make it fun for her. I took the day off school and we just played and spent the entire day together. I love that the first thing she said when she woke up this morning was "I love you, Mother". (She likes to call us "Mother" and "Father" sometimes!) I love the great big hugs she gives me and when she says, "You the best mommy I ever had". I love her crooked little eyes and her sweet little angel-smile. Despite the struggles our family has had because of her physical challenges, I would never change a thing about her and I am so glad that Heavenly Father trusted me to be her "Muth-oh".

Grace is so sweet and you are such a great Mommy to her!

I am with you...I am not very good at letting my boys grow up! It's so hard!
