Four years ago today, God gave us a blessing we didn't even know we needed.  Sarah Elizabeth is 4 years old today.  Where does the time go?  I wrote about how we found out I was pregnant with her and all of the emotions we went through and the problems during my pregnancy.  You can read that HERE.

I still can't believe my baby girl is 4.  Sometimes I feel like she's 12 or 13.  She seems so grown up at times, and then she starts whining, and I'm like, oh yeah, she's 4!  But she's an AMAZING little girl.  And she has been such a great part of our family.  I always tell people that we were happy before she came, but she "completed" our family.  I think she brought us all closer together.  The boys were so excited to be having a baby sister.  Ryan was looking forward to having "daddy's little girl."  And I was excited to be having a daughter.  One I could go shopping with, watch Disney movies with, collect Precious Moments with, and buy all the cute little girl clothes that are out there.

And now that little girl is 4.  And I thank God EVERY DAY that He gave her to us.  To love and cherish and take care of.  I promise to do my best to love and protect her, for as long as I live.

Thank you God.  Happy Birthday Sarah Beth.  I love you!
