It sure doesn't feel like it's been nine years since that brand new baby was placed in my arms.  But here we are.  And nine years from now she will be an official adult.  Halfway there.  Unbelievable!

It's always bittersweet to watch the kids grow up; but I guess it's more sweet than bitter.  Bella is such a fun girl and I love hanging out with her.  She has a sweet personality and a tender heart and can also get a little crazy at times - in a good way!  You can often find her reading a book or drawing - her two favorite things to do.

I'm so proud of Bella and the beautiful girl that she is - inside and out.  Thank you Lord for another year with this sweet girl and for this day to celebrate her.  

Happy Birthday Isabella!!!
