Happy Birthday

I am so lucky I get to be the mother of this precious little angel. I am grateful that she made it to our family safely and that she is the little fighter she is. I probably wouldn't know what I had missed out on then, but knowing what I know now, I would have been devestated had things gone differently! I know that the Lord has a special plan for her.

These last four years have gone by so quickly. I don't want my baby girl to grow up, but at the same time, I am so dang excited to see the little lady that she turns out to be.

As I sit here writing this post, Addison came in and I told her what I was doing. The following things are what she wanted me to say about her.

She is helpful, pretty, nice, beautiful, loves her family and knows that her family loves her, I give her nice things, she gives me nice things, she has the best manners. She says " yes please" and "no thank you".

(Then she wanted to type on the post. She did sign it with her name below.)


A little funny about Addison. The other day while we were all driving in the car, she asked her dad and I why we didn't name her Princess. Randy answered her honestly and said "We thought about it." (Which is the truth. Randy wouldn't commit to a name for her before she was born, so I threatened him that I was just going to name her Princess Merryweather and that he would just have to deal with it.) Addison then informed her dad and I that we were to call her Princess at home and out in public we could call her Addi/Addison. She said that Princesses were special and she didn't want people to know that she was a Princess or they would take her.
