Annalyse is FIVE

Somehow, my child turned 5 years old. I'm not gonna be shy, I cried. Or maybe wept.
This little girl was my last tummy baby and I remember making a point to soak everything in. Slowly. I promise, the more kids you have, the more you appreciate the little things. With her, I never wished for the next "phase" and I let things slide. With my first, her hairbows matched her socks and her passie for a trip to the post office. With this one...she's got on a diaper? Good to go.
Happy Birthday, Annalyse Drew! Your mama loves you way more than you will ever understand. Jesus has great big, courageous things in store for you, my fearless child. And I'm soaking you in every second of the day.


  1. Love this post! Happy Birthday, Big Girl!

  2. I swear her and Sophie are like TOTALLY the same. So weird! Happy Birthday Annalyse!
