SO last week

you know your life is way. too. busy. when a special girl celebrates a special day without her mama getting a chance to gush about it on her blog....

(although, i'm aware i gush about this girl a LOT.)

my baby turned 6 years old last friday!

Cassidy Rebekah Joy
birthday morning with required
homemade cinnamon buns!

was born the day before Mother's Day in 2005, 
just 2 1/2 months shy of her big brother's 3rd birthday.

It took a long time to decide if we would try for just one more.
We had a girl
and the boy to go with her;
would one more just be greedy?

of course not!

Cassidy came into the world "sunny side up"
and has been a ray of sunshine in our family every day since.

I praise God for this girl for she has made me a better mom.
Her delicate sensitivities have forced me to lower my voice,
make my tone sweeter,
and use more grace.
I really believe that was part of the Lord's intention with her life.

She has a strong sense of belonging 
and loves being part of our family.
She loves Jesus and talks to Him like He's really in the room.

I pray that the Lord will continue to draw her to Himself,
that we will parent her in a way that causes her to reach her full bloom
(how she LOVES flowers)
and that she will do all things the Lord has for her to do in her time here.

 I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, 
the glorious Father, 
may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, 
so that you may know him better.
eph 1:17

you are a blessing to me, my baby Dolly.

(this post was edited down after some second thoughts about giving too many details of my precious girl's personality and character traits.  call me over-protective, but it just felt weird to let "the world" know who she is, inside and out.)
