Adley, I am not ready for this year to be done. You are my precious baby tied to my hip as I go about my days in this home. From coloring time, outside time, lunch and snack time, dinner time and chasing and rounding up your siblings time, you are always with me. These days are coming to a close. It's hard to look ahead and wait for more good things from God when it's so difficult to let these baby days go.
It's been a whole year of learning how to do life with four, and the Lord couldn't have given us a sweeter treasure than you to walk through this season. You love on your mommy and daddy, especially your daddy. So much love gets saved and bottled up and explodes when daddy comes home. You love your siblings more than we could have imagined. Each one of them is a hero to you and you want to be just like them. We know you're so anxious to run with them.
I love you my sweet girl. You are a deep joy to me. I have so much anticipation for what God has for your days, and I am so thankful to be a part of them. Happy Birthday, with all my love.
