Jenna Grace is 2 years old today. She came into this world 9 lbs. 6 oz. 21 inches long. She is as petite now as she was fat then.
We are amazed by God's goodness to us, Jenna is a blessing. When she was born I promised myself I'd savor each moment, I'd linger to put her down, I'd kiss her more and hug her tighter than I did with Bethany and Joseph. Not because I loved her more, I love them each far beyond amounts or measurements. There aren't enough numbers or big enough scales for that. No, because then I knew just how fast a baby grows. How quickly the days pass that can't be gotten back.I promised God that I would complain less about the dirty dishes, the mountains of laundry, the exhaustion, and the unappreciated, unseen task of mothering a houseful. I promised to thank Him for this life He has given me, and for the life that lives because He created it.
She keeps mischief in her eye, she is always looking for a way to tease. She loves to make others laugh at her. She's as sweet as apple butter and there are few better feelings in this world other than munching on her ears.
The smiles this child has brought, and the joy she gives us each day is a gift from heaven.
Jenna Grace, we love you so much and enjoy seeing you grow each day. Happy 2nd Birthday to our precious little crazy girl. As Barney Fife said and we often say of you, most admiringly, "You're a nut!"
