|@ 6:00am right before we left to go to the hospital|
|Once we got to the hospital in my lovely gown-you look like you are hiding under there! I had never gotten this big before-of course I never went to my due date either!|
|Getting all the paper work filled out and chatting with my nurse. Waiting to break my water.|
You were 8 lbs 9.5 oz (my biggest baby) and 19 1/2 inches long. You had a ton of dark black hair and really cute round cheeks-you were just beautiful and perfect in every way. I was finally able to let all the fear of losing you go after I held you in my arms. What a joy that was.
|Minutes after you were born-when I first held you.|
|Our first kiss. My joy was overflowing-after a terrible late miscarriage God had given a wonderful gift, YOU!|
|You with you sweet daddy~|
|My beautiful baby girl(you were about 6 weeks old here)|
|You with your brothers Derek and Brandon and your sissy Alyssa in Glorieta NM-you were 5 months old|
You have been a joyful child since birth-always smiling and laughing and as you have grown, so has your personality! You shine-where ever you go you make friends, you never meet a stranger, you are loved by everyone who meets you.
You are beautiful inside and out sunshine-Happy 3rd Birthday. Love you!
Our prayer for you is that first and fore most, you learn who Jesus is and that you ask Him to come into your heart to live one day-that you will know what it means to have a personal relationship with your Heavenly Father. That has been my greatest joy for each of your siblings (next to giving birth to them)-seeing them have a second birth that will give them eternal life~(there is nothing that has given me more joy) We pray daily that you will make that decision one day as well.
|The day of your baby dedication. With Nana and Papa Schasre (mommy's parents)|
|After church on your baby dedication (August 2008-6 months old)|
|With us after church on your baby dedication-August 2008|
Second-I pray that you will always stay as joyful as you are today-that you shine with the light of Jesus and that others are drawn to you by that and want to know the reason for your joy.
We pray that you are happy doing whatever you feel that God calls you to do with your life one day.
We pray that whatever happens to you on this journey called life, that you will know that we love you with all our hearts, that we are so blessed to be your parents, that you have brought so much joy and love to our family. We are eternally grateful for you-and the gift that you are.
|The first time your Nana and You got to meet-love at first sight!|
We are so blessed-thank you for being such a sweet Squee (daddy's nick name for you-rhymes with Analeigh) and you now call yourself that-cracks us up. I hope you have a blessed 3rd birthday precious baby girl. WE LOVE YOU with all our hearts.
|You and "Little Analeigh" in your matching outfits.|
|Tea Party with the gang-nothing better than tea-teddy bears and tutus!|
|You really enjoy your chocolate like mom!|
|Snow day-this year Feb. 2011|
