Happy Birthday to my sweet baby Laycie. She’s 4 year’s old today. I can hardly believe it. Time has passed so quickly.
It seems like just yesterday I was being prepped for surgery in anticipation of seeing her precious little face for the first time. Due to complications, I was put to sleep and the first time I saw her face was in a photo. She had thick dark hair and a scrunched up baby face. Within an hour, I was holding her tiny body in my arms loving on my sweet girl. It was as if we’d never been apart.
The first time Emmalee saw Laycie, she told me “Mommy, she’s our Angel”. And she surely has been. She is a true blessing to each of us and fills our heart with Joy every single day. She is the sweetest little girl I know. She’s thoughtful and fun and filled with God’s light. A precious gift of God.
The older she gets, the more her personality shows and it is such a strong and triumphant personality. She has strong opinions and a strength to overcome so much in life. Nothing seems to get her down. She loves everyone, loves to ask questions, sing, dance and read. She has a hard time choosing between Mommy and Daddy’s girl and that’s just fine with us.
She loves playing outdoors, riding in Daddy’s truck helping him do whatever he needs, getting dirty, and looking for life at the pond with Mommy or Daddy of course! I fully expect she’ll be a logger just like her Daddy and Grumpy when she grows up though Daddy wishes a different life for her.
She’s definitely no longer a baby and my Mommy heart is a bit sad to say goodbye to her little days though I am overjoyed to watch her become a little lady a little more each day. God blessed me with each one of my children and my Laycie is certainly a blessing to everyone she comes in contact with. She is a true gift from God and I could never imagine life without her!
So on her 4th birthday, I send my little girl lots of love and joy, just as she’s given to me. I pray for her to grow into the young lady God wishes for her to be and she seems to be well on her way.
