Here's the sappy one.

Remember this post I did for Becca's birthday? Well, you didn't think I'd let Mara's birthday go by and not do a sappy post for her too, did you?










Sweet Mara....
Oh how four years have flown by!


It honestly feels like just yesterday that I was waiting, and waiting, and WAITING for a baby. Oh how I wanted a baby so bad, but God sure taught me so much during that waiting.



Then I was waiting, and waiting, and WAITING for you to come out of my tummy...you were two weeks late. I thought I'd be pregnant forever!



And then I got to meet you and kiss that precious face. The day my whole life changed!





I've never met a sweeter or more nurturing girl. You help me take care of your baby sisters, and have such a caring heart.



And how funny and silly you are! You love making your mommy and daddy laugh.

And now you're such a big girl...and so very independent.




I love you so much, and can't wait to see what the future holds for you.

Do me a favor though...don't grow so fast. I'm afraid I'm going to miss something!

Love,
Mom

Happy Birthday to Mara! I remember waiting with you for the two weeks after your due date. I was almost as anxious as you and Phil.
