I've been listening to Christmas music and these lyrics hit me.
"Have you wondered as you've watch my face
If a wiser one should have had my place?
But I offer all I am..."
Hearing this made me think of my sweet Sunny. Everyday I am grateful that she came to our family. And yes, I definitely have often wondered, as I watch so many friends and loved one struggle to have a baby, why she came. I'm grateful every single day that Heavenly Father saw fit to send us this baby!! I was so desperate for her. I have often wondered if deep down inside I knew there was another girl who was meant to be ours forever. Or maybe I just wanted a baby. I know everyone looked at me and wondered why I couldn't be content. I had FOUR kids! That's pretty dang magical. But I was so NOT content. I needed her in my life before I even knew her.
I am totally obsessed with her one year old pics. She was such a ham! I asked Allie to come along and be my assistant and Sunny loooooved having both of our full attention. When I put her on the bench she swung her legs back and forth and man...the adorableness!!!
We love her little personality. She treats so many of the words we say. She has a few words she says consistently, like mama and dada, of course.
When she wakes up she calls for me. "Mom mom mom mom." Its the greatest.
She started to crawl at church. The kids were so excited. Allie came home and wrote it in big letters on the calendar. So I can definitely say it was Sept 19!
The kids are trying so hard to teach her to walk. They really, well *I* really, want her walking before our upcoming trip. She practices daily so we'lol see if that speeds things along or not.
She was 17 pounds 9 ounces!! Her doc commented that she finally learned to enjoy eating. Who knows but yay! she was in the 10% from the second.
