Happy Birthday Little Bit
We are ALL about some birthdays over here! Warrior turned two on the 25th. And I say this reverently, Thank You, Lord! Read all about his first birthday here. I can say that I do sort of love him. He continues to be one of the primary means of sanctification in my life...my bedroom smells like a dog. Ick. He ate my roll last night. 'Nough said.
And we've also celebrated the birthday of our darling Little Bit! Happy, happy birthday sweet TWO year old! I cannot believe our baby girl is TWO YEARS old! (As of Monday, the 26th.) You are such a sweet delight. Such a good and perfect gift from God!
I remember the day we learned you were being knit together. It was a day of excitement and tears of joy! Not to mention shock. You have been celebrated from the moment we learned of you. Literally, after the fourth pregnancy test, when we were quite certain that this was "for real" we called ALL the family, shouting the good news! That first Wednesday night we knew, I remember being at church and a friend asking, "How are you?" And I blurted out, with a big grin, "Pregnant!" You have been celebrated from day one. We love you dearly.
The day you arrived there was a crowd gathered to meet you. JJ and Grandpa J and Bobo and lots of friends! Grandma and Grandpa made the drive and arrived shortly after you'd made your grand debut. Aunt A and her fam made the drive, too. Your Aunt K and Uncle M wanted a play by play over the phone...You have been SO celebrated! SO loved!
Your big sis and big bro were thrilled to meet you. In fact, I think Sister would have held you exclusively if we'd let her. She wanted a baby sister SO BAD!
You were a healthy 7lb 12oz and were 21" long! And you had a head FULL of dark hair!
I remember seeing these pictures and thinking that can't be me. I don't really have three children. We have enjoyed you so much! Your birth was so much fun! Those first days in the hospital...days of getting to know you. Of staring at this wonderful gift God had so lavishly given...those were sweet days.
We were delighted with you! Thankful to God for you! Rejoicing over you! You are a good and perfect gift from God. Perfectly formed. Perfectly designed. You have been created with great purpose and intention and the Lord has a wonderful plan for your life. He is sovereign and good and we pray that you will walk with Him all the days of your life.
I have been amazed at the way you have multiplied love in our family. You have brought such joy. Such smiles. Such laughter. Such life! I am so thankful for you. You are amazing. God is so good and we are so thankful.
Little Bit, you are wonderful! We are so in love with you! You are independent and strong and strong willed and you have quite the temper. And you love well. You scream well, too! You are an adventure and I am so very thankful the Lord has blessed us with wonderful, precious, amazing you.
Happy second birthday precious girl! We love you with all our hearts and we thank God for you!!! Happy, happy birthday darling!
