Sadie's First Birthday

To: Sadie From: Sadie's whole family






A feast for a princess - spaghetti pie (Sadie LOVES), salad, fruit


In lieu of a cake, we made brownies with whipped cream and strawberries...mmm!!!






Birthday gifts - book that plays music (Sadie LOVES music) and Strawberry Shortcake.







This smile comes out for the big brothers...



Sadie Kathryn...you have been such a tremendous blessing to our family. You are a mama's girl all the way, but you are slowly developing a sweet spot for your daddy that always includes snuggling deep into his shoulder. Your big brothers adore you and do everything big brothers can do to make you laugh...and annoy you. You seem to reserve your biggest smiles for them. As a dear friend said, "One year ago we believed the dream of having a little girl." I still have to pinch myself sometimes to believe it is true. Oh, the fun you and mama are going to have while the boys do "boy things" with daddy. You've done almost everything differently than your brothers leaving us wondering if you'd ever do those important things like sleeping through the night, feeding yourself, getting liquids from something other than mama, crawling. You will probably keep up guessing and doing things differently for the rest of your life! But no matter how you accomplish those important milestones, our most sincere prayer for you is that you will grow up with a heart that is always passionate and sensitive to the Lord's leading in your life. We love you, Sadie, and praise God everyday for the blessing of your life!
