dear estee,

this morning you greeted me with the biggest smile on your face, jumping up and down so excited for what the day would bring.

i stayed up all night last night making a pink birthday cake with a big "E" on it for you just like you wanted.

today, once again, i reminded you just how completely loved you are.

today, i looked at you and saw a four year old little girl with absolutely no traces of a baby left.

today, i said an extra special prayer thanking heavenly father for giving me you.

hi, my name is Karen and I am not sure how I came to follow your blog...but I do....you said it perfectly about your daughter turning four...how there is no trace of a baby any more...my daughter just turned three last week. I feel the same way. It goes by way way to fast. I thank God for giving me my daughter as well. We are so very blessed. Thanks for such a nice post.

Karen :)
