Basin of Grace

Four years ago today Grace Kathryn was born at 6:13am. To say that we were in love from the beginning was an understatement. There was a wonderful singer at church today named Kim Walker (look her up). She talked at length about God's love for His children. I didn't really understand that love until I became a parent. There is no way to describe the love that we had for her and still have for her. When she's sick, our heart breaks. When she's disobedient, our heart breaks. When she is sad, we want to cry as well. But when she's happy and full of life, we relish in it. We are so overjoyed that God trusted us to take care of this girl.

I was just going to pick out one or two good pictures and post a short thing about her but we all know that I'm hormonal from pregnancy. So instead you will get a detailed novel wrote on a tear stained keyboard.

Grace is the princess of all princesses. Most know that she refuses to wear shorts or pants because princesses only wear dresses. She loves headbands, especially her new ones with the bows. She is also a true woman that wears her sparkly shoes even though they hurt her feet. Today at lunch I told her that I really liked her new dress, to which she politely replied, "and I like your glasses" back to me. Wasn't that a proper polite response? Don't worry, she has her daddy's side in her as well. She can fart and burp at will and longs to be a nudist. She is a great big sister that is always willing to run and fetch something for Clara. She's also very excited that we're having another little girl. Did I tell you that yet? Just in case not (pregnancy brain), it's a girl. If it was a boy, I think she'd be thinking of ways to sell him to buy more dresses. But she truly is excited that it's a girl.

She's put up with two parents who didn't know what to do, even putting her naked in an easter basket for pictures, and just rolled with the punches. Then when we threw a sister into the mix when she was just over a year, she loved it even more. They are best friends and I hope that never changes. Three dogs, two cats (sorry you didn't last kitties), and a slew of time-out's later, she is the most loving girl anyone could ask for.

If you don't believe me, ask her yourself. Her key phrase in life just happens to be, "I luwv it."

So I'll just leave you with a thousand pictures of her because I love her too much just to post a few of them.

In the near future I'm going to write a post about homebirth because it's something we strongly support. I might include Grace's birth story with that because it's the faster of the two to type out. So watch for it!
