It’s amazing how a year can go by for years and you never really noticed. Well, this particular year…from February 12, 2007 to February 12, 2008 was one that didn’t just slip by.
This is the first year of Abigail’s life. I’m sure next year, I’ll be saying the same…how amazing it is…how much she’s changed, but, somehow the firsts are so incredible. The change from a “fresh from the womb” creature to a babbling, beaming, squirming ball of love is tremendous. And, I can’t decide which is more fun. I think that’s God’s way of exercising his sense of humor…daring us…”Go ahead, try to pick just one!”
The first tooth, the first word, the first foods, giggle, smile, (and I won’t even go into the bodily functions, but you know they capture our attention, too) are all something to marvel at. We cherish our little Love Bug and can’t wait for all the future firsts, but without rushing it. We’re enjoying them and the pace she and God have agreed upon.
We love you, Abigail.
