My sweet Bo turns 5 today. Where has the time gone? Isabel was our little unexpected blessing. I remember crying when I found out I was pregnant… Peter was just 8 months old and Jed was not even 2 yet!!! I was NOT ready to have another baby! I remember praying and asking God, “if only this one could be a girl, I’d be ok with it.” Haha… I would have been ok with whatever I would have. This baby was going to be a blessing… just with a little time to get used to the idea, that’s all! But, when I saw my sweet girl on the screen during her ultrasound and we knew we were indeed having a girl, my heart skipped a beat. My heart skips a beat every day that she is in my life! We have been through a lot with this sweet girl, a speedy and painful birth, a heart murmur that lead to many visits to the cardiologist, a defect diagnosis and eventual open heart surgery just 2 years ago, bumps and bruises (she is quite
clumsy accident prone), and many tears and joys. She is quite possibly the most beautiful girl on the planet, in my opinion! She is full of love and devotion to her family and has a love for God that humbles me. She is a joy and a precious gift and blessing and I am so proud to be her mama!
Happy 5th Birthday, my sweet girl. I love you so much!
Here is a snippet of our Mama/daughter day out to celebrate her birthday. We went to Build-A-Bear and lunch and she got to ride the carousel at the mall (her highlight!). Then we had fun opening presents the next day with her family. Such a fun weekend.
