So, another year has come and gone. That tiny 8lb 7 oz baby from 2007 is now a healthy 7 year old little girl. Its been a deeply moving experience being her Mom. She was indeed so carefully created, and man, He made her exquisite in every way. From her brilliant blue eyes to the tips of her chubby toes, she is pure and good. So very good. Kind and quirky. Stubborn and thoughtful. Creative and Smart. Born with a heart like no other. How can such a small creature contain so many different qualities?

I can only describe these past seven years as Joy filled.
Its truly been such a pleasure. Evidence, once again, that God loves us, to have trusted us with such a precious creation, and for that we are eternally grateful.
When we were pretty far into the pregnancy with Addison we started to build a little library for her. I found this one the other day while tyding up and thumbing through found a little note I had written to her before she ever even entered the world. Before I ever knew of this 'love'.... before I had this mothers heart. Its corny and so poorly written but its full of love and with wonder at what the future would bring.

Mommy & Daddy bought this book on 11/4/06 after we had an ultrasound picture taken of you. It was 3D so we got to see all your beautiful features for the first time. We even got to see you moving around!! Mimi, Pop Pop, Auntie Courteney, Uncle Tyler, Auntie Elisabeth and Uncle Mark came to see you too. Lots of other people wanted to come but there wasn't anymore room..... everybody loves you so much already. You are so lucky.
Mommy and Daddy waited a lifetime for you to finally get here. Up until the day you arrived you kicked Mommy so much. Mommy was so huge- her belly couldn't get any bigger, but that was ok because the bigger Mommy's belly got....the prouder Mommy and Daddy got knowing that you were growing so big and strong.
It took 28 long hours before you were ready to finally come out. Mommy couldn't wait any longer!! When you came out your Nana, Mimi and Auntie Courteney were there with Mommy and Daddy. The first time Mommy saw you she cried so hard. You were so very beautiful and you had 10 toes and 10 fingers.....you were perfect in every way. I think everyone else in the room cried happy tears too, but especially your Daddy.
The whole waiting room at the hospital was full of your family. Nana, Grampa, Grammy, PapaDad, Mimi, Pop Pop, Uncle mike, Auntie Stacie, Jade , Colin, Uncle Matt, Uncle Mark, Aunt Elisabeth and Auntie Courteney. They all wouldn't go home until they got a chance to see you and hold you. Almost till midnight!
January 18th, 2007 was the best day of Mommy's whole life . You are the most loved baby in the whole entire world and I cannot wait to watch you grow each and every day.
Mommy loves you

He took a little child and had him stand among them. Taking him in his arms, he said to them, "Whoever welcomes one of these little children in my name welcomes me; and whoever welcomes me does not welcome me but the one who sent me."
