We left for the hospital the next morning, and by that afternoon we had the most perfect little girl I had ever seen. She was the light of our lives then, and she still is today. She has brought so much laughter and love to our lives, and we are so blessed to be her parents.
This has been an emotional year of firsts for me as a parent. Makenzie started 4-year old kindergarten and along with that came independence and drama. She no longer needs me as much as she used to. She wants to hang out with her friends instead of me. She has to pick out her own clothes. BUT, she is still my little girl whether she likes it or not, and I know she loves her Mommy so very much.
I am so very proud of my precious girl. I have to share this with you guys. Last night as Wayne finished reading the girls a bible story and we were tucking them into bed, Presley said she didn't want to say her prayers. Before I could say anything, Makenzie was by her sister's side. She placed her little hand over Presley's and said, "I'll help you Sissy, pray after me." Makenzie then went on to lead her sister in the sweetest prayer, stopping every few words so that Presley could repeat them after her. She then said her own prayer, and we tucked them in. Needless to say, Wayne and I were both in tears as we hugged and kissed them goodnight.
Mommy and Daddy are so proud of you. We see Christ working in your life, and we can't wait to see what you do for Him as you grow older. We love you sweet girl!
