This past weekend, we were blessed to be able to celebrate our firstborn turning 6 years old!
As Michael and I discussed over the course of the weekend, people told us many times when I was pregnant and when she was tiny that it would "fly by". We heard the adage "The days are long but the years are short". We were not not to "blink" because we "would miss it" if we closed our eyes for even a second. We really didn't think we blinked, but I'm pretty sure we must have!
How can this precious girl be 6 already?!?
This day, the day she was born, feels like it was only a year or two ago. I can still recall almost every detail. I guess that's how it is when you're a mom...taking snapshots in your mind of the details that make life important.
While my mind can hardly wrap around the fact that this beautiful girl is 6 years old, we spent the entire weekend celebrating her life with friends and family.
Happy Birthday Miss Eliyah!
You are on precious girl! We are so thankful that we have the privilege of parenting you through this life on earth. We thank God for the blessing your life is to our family and many others!
Momma and Papa love you more deeply than you can comprehend!
