Happy 5th Birthday, dear daughter! Yay! Time to recount God's kindness in bringing you into the world five years ago today.
Daddy and I LOVE remembering the birth story of each of you kiddos. Your birth story was exciting because it involved Walmart, Chik-fil-a, a kind neighbor on the bottom floor of our then condo, speed, and our first beautiful baby girl with a head full of curly dark hair!
You enjoy school and the work that involves. You may be similar to how I was as a little girl, loving books and school and learning and playing school with my dolls. You are now the kid who can read things as you look out the window of the van.
While you are such an avid reader, you willingly ask my approval over books you select at the library and seem to accept without problem when I say you may not check out a particular book. What evidence of God at work in you, sweet girl.
Other things I'd like to remember about you at this age are:
~you cross your legs when you sit down in the van and are all buckled in
~you eat very well but still don't like to chew and swallow broccoli, green beans, or meat
~you still wear your veil around your head (really a ballet skirt!) even when we go out
~you like to wear your rainboots with your dresses and a bit of dirt doesn't phase you
~you are very thoughtful and always thinking of someone to make something for
~you suffer from nosebleeds often, particularly when we don't make you drink a glass of raw milk
Daddy and I adore you and thank God for you! May you, our little budding artist, use all of your gifts for God's glory and may you grow in your affection and awe of The Creator!
I love you, Saraina Elisabeth!
