She's One

Sweet Bunny,
A happy birthday story for you.
In the dark I sat at my kitchen table and asked Him for you through tears and unwavering hope.  
One winter day, there were 2 pink lines.  You were growing and coming to us.
Last fall, you came into this world with sweetness and tender cuddles.
Delight.  Pure delight.

And we have been in love with you ever since.
Thousands of kisses and hugs have been logged.
And hundreds of prayers and celebrations of His healing power and growth over your body have been given.
How you will look back on this and know the Maker restored your tender body.
And how He took you to mountain tops in Colorado and showed you His beauty.
The same beauty I see in you, Precious One.

So today, we celebrated in your honor.
Making you Oatmeal Cinnamon Pancakes for your little hands.
And your sisters have sang to you from the moment you woke up and it will continue.

Oh how we love you Bunny.  More than you know.

Our hearts are tickled pink with affection and crazy love for you.

You are precious.  There's no one like you.  
Today we celebrate your life and want you to know how valuable you are to us.
So we kiss you and tell you how deep our love runs for you.

And how there's nothing sweeter than your gift of neck nuzzling and affection, your raspy voice, the way we sway and waltz at night before you sleep.

How we love you to the moon and back.

Our Alice Elizabeth,
Happy Birthday to you.  How blessed we are to hold such a treasure in our arms and hearts.  What a precious gift we have been entrusted with.  Our hearts swell because you belong to us.
Oh how we love you Bunny.

You will show me the path of life and in Your presence is fullness of JOY, 
and at your right hand are pleasures forever and ever.
Psalm 16:11
Happy Birthday baby girl.
