Five years ago on this day, a little cinnamon-haired baby made her way into our lives and hearts on wintry, snowstormy afternoon. (Read the story of her speedy, breathtaking, unassisted birth at home here.) Today, on a sunshiny 52-degree day that feels like spring, she celebrates her fifth birthday.
How fitting that the glorious sunshine is shining on her today. She brings so much light, love, and laughter to our lives. I can’t imagine our family without her. (She’s off painting pottery with Daddy and a friend as her big birthday present. She’s so happy!)
Happy 5th 5irthday, Ellery Maeve! God’s blessings to you always.
