{this moment}

"Though she be but little, she is fierce."

Our baby girl... Oh, how I love her! When she wakes up (probably in an hour or so, since that’s about as long as she will sleep at a time) she will be a year old... What a year it has been!

I can’t think back to the week she was born without fighting anxiety... my father-in-law passed away June 6th, I went (back) into labor June 7th, she arrived at 1:56 AM on June 8th, and my husband and our five oldest children all left on June 9th to travel to the out-of-state funeral while she and I were still in the hospital.

Since then it has been a hard year for so many reasons, including almost losing her to an ALTE when she was a couple months old, but God is so good and has sent us so many graces along with the little crosses and struggles.  Grace upon grace upon grace. 

I can’t imagine our family without her and I am so excited and grateful to celebrate her first birthday!  

She still smiles when she sleeps  ❤

Mary, Mediatrix of All Graces, pray for us!
