Happy Birthday Mary Elisabeth

What a difference a year makes!!! This morning Josiah and I went into Mary Elisabeth's room and sang Happy Birthday! I can not believe she is one. It seems like only yesterday I held her in my arms for the very first time. I dream of the days when we will be able to have mom and daughter talks, spend daddy's money, get our nails done, shop for homecoming and prom dresses, and many more experiences! I know that it is a long time from now, but I can not wait to see my baby girl in her wedding dress escorted by daddy to the altar. I pray that the man that God has chosen for her will be a man after God's own heart who loves the Lord and lives to serve Him. I know I am getting ahead of myself...haha! I am enjoying her as she is now and I am not wishing her away, but I can not help but dream and imagine :) 
For now, I will enjoy her as she is.... She is walking on her own, has a mouth full of teeth, and is so fearless. I thank God everyday for blessing my life with this beautiful baby girl! I thank God that he has allowed me to experience being a mom. At times it drives me crazy and I feel like I can not go on, but I know that God is with me every step of the way.

Leaving the hospital
