Happy birthday, #5!

September 13, 2008 at 3:45 pm 3 comments

10 years ago today, in the wee hours of the morning, we were on our way to the hospital.  I was beginning to consider whether Daddy could deliver you in the pickup truck.  I blame the cutting-it-close to my insistence that he run back in the house for my gold earrings 10 minutes earlier.  (I wanted to look cute for pictures.)

When you were born, we could hardly believe we had delivered our first baby girl.  Grandma and Grandpa were sure we were kidding.  When your birth was announced in church later that morning, there was actual applause!

You have such a kind and tender heart, and you always stick up for the underdog.  You are sensitive to what God wants you to do, and we see you learning for yourself how much He loves you.  You are helpful and fun and refreshingly girly (even though you asked Dad if you could say “crap” now that you’re 10).

You have been a joy to all of us, and we are so glad you were born.

Mom and Dad

    I think we should have a Java Family birthday party for Eva and Cory! Or maybe just the mom’s could celebrate over a little cake and coffee on Wed. 🙂
