Happy Birthday Beautiful!

I can't believe the precious baby girl above has grown up to be such a beautiful and sweet five old! And now that sweet bunny still sleeps in your bed, but it looks so small next to you while you sleep. I confess, I sometimes go in your room at night just to see you soundly sleeping, pray for my sweet girl, and soak in the fact that God has given me you.

Charly, you are God's little princess, and I am honored that He chose me to be your mommy. I pray as you grow, that you will be continually drawn towards your perfect Father in Heaven, and that he will mold your heart to be more and more like His, overflowing with love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. I also pray that you will use your many talents to glorify Him who created you.

You are such a great little artist. I love to watch you paint and color and create. I am awed by what you are able to do. You are also so gifted in the ability to put colors together, both in fashion and on paper. Will you be a designer one day?

You are a great singer. I love to hear your voice echo through the car or the house. You have a wonderful memory for lyrics, and a great sense of rhythm and tone. I especially love when you sing with your daddy at the piano. I wish you would allow me to record it more.

You are a great climber! You have no problem keeping up with your brothers in their adventures, and I'm so proud of you for your perseverance. You always seem to have this joy about you when you are outside climbing around in trees or the fort.

You are loving and kind. You are a leader and a loyal friend. It melts my heart to watch you as your lead your younger brother with kindness, and it is so sweet to watch you with your friends. You have strong opinions, and I see you working hard to try to put others before yourself. I'm proud of you.

Lastly, you are truly beautiful. A little princess with a smile that is contagious. Thanks for being you. I thank God for you daily, and I look forward to year five!

Happy Birthday Charly! I love you so so much!
