Six years ago today, I was holding a tiny baby girl in my arms wondering, "What in the world am I going to do with all this hair!" (I still ponder that same thought most every morning.) She was beautiful then, and now... no words can describe my six-year-old's beauty. She is tenderhearted, loving, kind, unselfish, gorgeous, precious, sensitive, sincere... I could go on and on. Most of all, she loves Jesus and is not at all ashamed to tell you so. I am so crazy about Ava Isabelle Slaughter and wholeheartedly admit I am unworthy to be her Mommy. Thank you, Lord, for my precious baby girl. I love her so much.
Since her second birthday, I have been deliberate in getting a "birthday picture." (Her first birthday got away without one, but I do have a picture of her eating her cake. What mom doesn't, right?) Anyway, stay tuned for this year's picture. It's been so rainy, we haven't been able to get outside. But here is 1-5. Enjoy, and if you see her, wish her a happy birthday.
