Sweet Sydney is Two!!!

Our beautiful little girl turned two years old yesterday! It was a pretty low-key birthday. We did some family stuff and took her to a basketball game. We'll have her party and Kambree's party combined in a couple weeks.


I can't describe how much joy and happiness Sydney has added to our family. We had prayed for a daughter for many years and now we have three of them! They are each so different, yet so beautiful and so delightful.


Sydney warms my heart each and every day. Of all my children, she is perhaps the most attached to me- the one that would rather sit on my lap and cuddle then run and explore and play. The one who needs me to tell her she's okay when she is crying before she can run on and play, and the one who is devastated and heartbroken if I have to scold her for anything. She's the one who will sit still on my lap and listen to me read an entire book- not for the story, but for the time together.


It's a very special relationship that I have with her. It's been that way since the moment she was born. She arrived after a totally easy delivery and only made me push 3 times before she slid out simply and painlessly (something I never truly recognized the vaule of until Kambree's birth a year later). I remember so vividly the first time I saw her and thought she was so beautiful, even all bloody and goopy and not cleaned off yet. She was born mad (and frequently exhibits a horrible attitude even now) and was instantly hungry. True to her personality, she wouldn't calm down until a nurse brought in a bottle of formula and then she sucked down over an once- right there in the delivery room at about 15 minutes old. She still eats like no other.


She is a very sweet girl (when she isn't mad or hungry) and so incredibly beautiful with her big brown "mouse eyes" as Brandon calls them. We all adore her and I have trouble even remembering a time when she wasn't part of our family.


Happy birthday sweet Sydney. We love you so much. We are so proud of you and can't wait to watch you grow!

Happy birthday, little one! Can't believe you're 2 already!
The Lord knows everything that's going on and is always there, working. I'm here praying!
Hebrews 4:13-16 Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do. Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession. For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.
