Sophie is 1!

One year ago, we started on a journey.

She was the most beautiful thing I have ever seen.

A lot can change in a year. I had no idea what I was in for. No idea of the night wakings, or the way her cry would pierce my heart and I’d do anything to make her happy. No idea that someone so tiny could change a life in such a BIG way. No idea how much I could love someone. No idea that someone so beautiful could be mine!

She grew and changed. Learned to hold her head up, roll over, babble and coo, smile, laugh, crawl, and pull up to standing. Soon she’ll be walking on her own. She’s incredible-a miracle.

Sometimes it blows my mind to think that Kevin and I are responsible for this little life. It’s up to us to guide her and teach her to love Jesus, be a good friend, always help others, and to make good choices. But having her with us has become second nature. When we’re alone, just the two of us, it sometimes feels like someone is missing.

Happy Birthday Sophie Joy!
