Today is my sweet precious Lollie Girl's 2nd birthday. She is such a blessing to our family and our lives. I just could not imagine my life without her. Two years ago today she was welcomed into this world by a room full of people. Joe, Grammy, MeMaw, Other Mama, Aunt Sheila, Aunt Crystal, and of course me where all there when she took her first breath. I think almost all of us were crying as we looked at her for the first time. Shortly thereafter she met the rest of the family that was at the hospitla awaiting her arrival. It was the next day before Josie would meet her new best friend. Jolie has taught us so much and my heart overflows with joy and love for both of my girls. She is so outgoing and is in a constant parade. She loves talking to people when we are out and she loves to sing and dance. She has gotten more brave at church and sings and claps along as we have our early morning singing at church. She gives the most wonderful hugs and loves to make you laugh. Her little smile can light up the room. She was the cutest thing ever at her birthday party Saturday. She was oblivious that it was all for her until she heard us say "Happy Birthday to Lollie" and then her little face lit up as she realized it was for her. It was one of those moments I would love to freeze frame in my mind forever. My girls are my world and we are so blessed that God has entrusted them to our care. I truly believe that every single child is a miracle and a gift from God. I love her more than words can express. I want to thank everyone that took the time to come share this special event with us. Like I said earlier, this was a once in a lifetime thing and it is two hours that we will never get back. Thank you everyone for the cards, gifts, and your love. And thank you so much to those of you that have called or wished her a happy birthday today. She just lights up every time she realizes that today is her day.
Joe put her up on his shoulders so everyone could see:
