Notable this week:
Sat up for the first time on the 26th (in a pile of wrapping paper during Christmas #5)
Slept 8 hours on New Year's Eve
You are the sunrise in our days with your huge grins and babbles first thing in the mornings. Sam and Julia fight over who gets to play with you while you lounge on Mommy & Daddy's bed when you wake up. I don't know how you do it considering how often you wake at night, but all thoughts of those sleepless nights for Mommy vanish when I look in your beautiful eyes. They are four shades of blue those eyes of yours. Navy on the outer edges, blueberry mixed with periwinkle comes next, and a steel blue right around the irises.
Somehow your half birthday is upon us and I can't help but choke up at the thought of how blessed we are to have you in our lives. Three children were not part of 'our plan' but thankfully God's plan for our lives is so.much.better. YOU make me better. You help me slow down and breathe in your soft silky hair as I marvel at the imaginations of your older siblings as they play 'school' with Daddy. Your absolute delight when one of us walks into the room is often the highlight of my
day. We don't deserve you but are so very grateful for you!
2011 was a year I won't ever forget. It was the year God gave me you.
Happy (almost) half birthday to my BabyBear!
I love you!
