Psalm 127:3-5

Behold children are a gift of the LORD,
The fruit of the womb is a reward.
Like arrows in the hand of a mighty warrior, so are the children of one's youth.
How blessed are those whose quiver is full of them

Happy Birthday Anna


Tomorrow, December 9, is the 5th birthday of our firstborn! How in the world did our first child get to be 5 years old? It was just yesterday I was holding her back in 2004 during her first Christmas season at our little apartment in Euless. I had prepared everything ahead of time and Jimmy had strung Christmas lights around the living room. I will NEVER forget the moments of sitting in that quiet cozy living room throughout the remainder of December, all the lights out except the ones Jimmy hung and those that lit the Christmas tree. Jimmy and I would take turns holding her for hours on end admiring this amazing little child and wondering what she would be like as she grew older.

Well 5 years later I can now give you a little overview of what this little baby girl has become and how she has changed....

A bald baby who didn't have ANY hair until she was 2 years old now has GORGEOUS long blonde curls
An early talker, Anna has always enjoyed long intense conversations with her daddy and I or anyone who would listen and if no one will listen she just talks to herself =)
A child who LOVES to please, Anna is always looking for things she can do to make those around her happy
Her daddy held her for HOURS and DAYS on end when she was a baby and now there is really nothing she likes more than being with her daddy
An incredible big sister, she works hard to help her mommy with any needs the two little ones might have.
She is working hard everyday to make a best friend out of her little sister even though sometimes she forces Serene to be her friend =)
A child with a very sensitive heart, whenever she does wrong she can't stand it and comes right to Jimmy and I to let us know what she did and make things right
Just like her daddy, she is already and good golfer and loves to go golfing with her daddy
She LOVES to do crafts and does at least 10 a day...literally
As with most girls her age she loves dress up and first and foremost likes to be a princess
She started reading this past year and is getting better everyday
She is now playing the violin and loves going to violin lessons
She LOVES pink and thinks everythings better when it's pink
Anna loves to remind her sister that SHE is mommies first baby and the one who made mommy a mommy... =)
She is so strong willed that I sometimes think I need to throw in the mommy towel and start over BUT she can also melt my heart and remind me just how incredible being a mommy is!
She is happy and joyful and always encouraging
She is too smart for her own good, therefore not allowing us to pull anything over on her
She loves CHRISTMAS so I am certain God allowed her to be born in December to give her a special piece of this incredible month =)

Jimmy and I are so grateful for Anna and her role in our family. I can't express how thankful I am to God for giving Anna to me so I could become a mommy and experience the joy it all brings!

LOVE YOU ANNA!!!!!
