today is sissy’s real birthday (even though we had a party a few weeks back).
and suddenly i have no words to convey my thoughts or my love for this amazing little gift the Lord saw fit to give us.
my sister said it best when she told me, “i never expected to be sanctified this much through my children.”
so i guess i owe mercy a few thank yous.
thank you baby girl for teaching me that love doesn’t divide, it multiplies.
thank you baby girl for teaching me that anything and everything has the potential to be dangerous to your well being.
thank you baby girl for teaching me that not all kids are born outgoing and social but some are born more thoughtful and analytical.
thank you baby girl for teaching me to slow down and learn how you need individual quality time.
i can think of so many things to say about my youngest daughter but for now i will just leave you with this – – a little recap from the first year of her life.
we love you so much, mercy adoniyah klein burtt. you are precious to your mama, dada, big sister and a whole lotta family and friends! ♥
