Last Sunday was Esther's first birthday. It was also my Grandma's nintieth brithday! Esther is named after my grandma (Esther Marjorie) so they have always had a special bond. Grandma says Esther is really her baby, but she graciously allows us to take care of her!
We are so blessed to live only a couple of blocks away from both my parents and my grandparents. My girls adore their great-grandparents and it is a treasure that they are such a big part of their lives!
I have such a hard time believing that Esther is really a year old. I keep pretending she is a baby, but with all these beautiful nieces and nephews being born, reality is slowly hitting me that my darling little girl is growing up.
Esther is priceless to us.
She is not just "another" girl in our family.
Her temperment is not always the easiest to get along with. She has an extremely strong will and likes to have thing go her way!
But she is also sweet as can be. Her smiles make the world go round.
We love you our sweet, beautiful Esther. We praise the Lord for giving you to us and we rejoice in every day we get to spend with you!
