Decade Girl

5 years ago

Sara, our sun ray!

When I got pregnant with her and we were at our 20-week utrasound, we couldn't really tell whether she was a boy or a girl.  We always pick out names for our babies while they're in the womb, so I set out to pick out a boy name and a girl name, just like we always do.

Sara is Dave's favorite girl name.  It means "princess".  I thought it was wonderful, but I was going to spell it differently, so I dropped the 'h' on the end.  She has lived up to her name in every way!

Her goofiness started at the age of 4, when she realized she could make us laugh!

I think the one word that would describe this girl is joyful.

I can't believe she was three once!

She has brought so much joy into our lives!

Sara has been such a blessing to us.  I thank God for her, for all she has taught me.  I just wanted to document her blossoming in pictures, for everyone to see.  My words are weak and inadequate, but I love her and I just can't believe that so much time has passed.

Happy 10th Birthday, Sara!

I'm so glad that you stopped by weeks ago, and I enjoyed your comment! You have a beautiful family, and I pray that your upcoming delivery goes well.

As far as my outfit, I can't help much there, as I've had the sweater for going on 15 years now (!!) and the dress from Aeropostale a couple years ago. I did recently get those leggings from Matilda Jane, though. :)

Nice to "meet" you!! Blessings, Kate
