Happy Birthday, Baby Girl!

It is really hard for me to believe that my baby girl is one already!  Sweet little Brynn Elizabeth was born March 16, 2009 at 9:30 pm.  She was the perfect addition to our young family, and it has been a joy to watch her grow.  She is a happy baby with a charming smile that wrinkles her nose.  She has a very tender heart, and gets her feelings hurt easily.  She adores her big sister Ella, and wants to be where Ella is.  She does not want to miss anything.  Playing next to momma, daddy or Ella is her favorite place to be.  She is crawling all over the place now, and wants to walk really badly, but she's not quite brave enough yet.  She is a binkie baby, but only needs it at bedtime these days.  Just a couple of weeks ago she started talking more and more and now says "mama, dada, Ella, Deke, this, more, and hi."  Peek a boo and 'ride-a-little-horsey' are hilarious in her world!  She has a slightly mesmerizing attachment to her blankie, and within seconds of it being in her hands she will lay down on it and close her eyes... even if she was just up playing.  Its like she cannot resist its sleep-inducing-powers!   She will grin and clap anytime she hears music start playing.   She gives the best open mouth kisses called an "a-wah" because she always makes this hysterical "a-wah" sound as she plants one on ya! 
Brynn weighs in at 23 pounds, but I am not sure yet how long she is!  She has always trend at the top of the growth chart just like her big sissy!  I wish I could just bottle her up and keep her a baby forever.  These days go by so fast.  But, I know that part of the blessing of being a mommy is learning to hold on to these babies with an open hand and allowing them to grow, learn, explore and blossom.
Thank you, God, for the awesome privilege being momma to Brynn and Ella.  I love them more than words can express.  My heart just bursts every time my mind turns to them.  May I be found worthy of this high calling.  I love you, Brynnie.  Happy Birthday, baby girl.
