the sweetest of blessings...

Five years ago today at exactly 8:09 p.m. - five weeks early - we welcomed you, our firstborn, our sweet daughter that we had prayed for so much. There are still no words to describe the emotions I felt as they placed you in my arms...a tiny little baby with big, bright eyes...a long awaited promise from our Heavenly Father right before my eyes.

What a blessing you have been, my sweet Grace!
Five years ago you made me a mom - it was the best day of my life!

These five years have gone by so fast. Sometimes I want to hold you in my arms and hang tight praying time still. But I know this is just the beginning of the story. God has so much planned for your life and I can't wait to see it unfold, cheering you on every step of the way.

I love you my sweet little pumpkin. Always and forever.
Happy 5th Birthday!

Happy Birthday Grace!! May you have one very blessed year.

Her dress is just too cute!!! The embroidery you did was perfect.

Jessica said...

Thank you ladies for the super sweet comments!

Olivia~ this dress was made by my dear friend Angel ( Her adorable embroidered apron dresses were the reason I learned to embroider in the first place!! She is no longer sewing for business, but she's uber talented and super sweet. Check out her blog - you'll love it!!

My sweet Grace: I'll never forget the day you were born...and the first time I held you in my arms!
Even in your first picture,barely minutes after coming into this world, your eyes were wide-open, looking...searching.You have grown into a sweet, beautiful, smart, inquisitive 5-years-old precious girl. I treasure all the time that I spend with you (and your little brother).May God bless you and guide your steps every day of your life. Happy Birthday to my special girl!
All my love, always, Noonie said...
