Happy Birthday, sweet Elle

Oh, how we waited for you. We loved you
even before you got here.
There were a few tense moments.
But your daddy has a calmness about him,
and he brings strength when your mother loses hers.
Some couldn't stay awake.
But each one of us was so happy to finally meet you.

From the moment they brought you home,
you nestled your way into our hearts.
We are so in love with you, sweet child.
Our blonde Alabama babygirl.
It's your birthday. Your first.
And you have such a beautiful life ahead of you.
Always know your Pa and Nan love and adore you.
Forever and a day ~

Happy Birthday, Miss Elle! What a sweet, beautiful post!!

I love the picture of you holding Noah in the rocking chair. Brought back many memories of you rocking sick little ones in your 2nd grade classroom.
