Happy Sixth Birthday, Selah!!

I've told you this already, sweet Selah, but FIVE YEARS OLD was a really good age for you. We've seen you grow much in the past year. You've become more self-controlled and more loving and kind, looking out for others this year. You've become more confident and secure, and we've really enjoyed watching you dote over the newest baby in the house.

You've grown in your talents, and you and Eliana have really bonded in your creativity, especially as the two of you have worked together to make games, decorations, and other projects. It's been sweet to see how the two of you have really started to enjoy each other's company this year, and part of this has been due to you each growing in maturity in the way you relate to others. We thank God for this answered prayer, and we eagerly look forward to seeing what other plans God has for you.

This past year you have started school, started ballet, started riding a two-wheeled bike...

and each thing you do you do with joy and enthusiasm and pizzazz!!

But you still take the time to stop. And cuddle. And love.

You're a sweet delight, Selah. A precious gift from God. And we thank God for you.

Rest in Him, Sweet Girl. Trust Him and His goodness. Grow in His love. He'll take good care of you.

Happy, happy birthday, Baby Girl. May this next year bring more of God's goodness in your life.
