Audrey is ONE!!

Our little Ladybug is ONE whole year old!  My goodness!

The team on the cardiology floor reserved a conference room for us to have a little celebration for her this evening.  It wasn't an ideal way to spend her birthday, but I don't think she would have had it any other way.  We were all together, and that is what matters.  Keegan even made it out of bed to help her open a few presents and sing "happy birthday".

I don't know how a year could have gone by so fast.  I look back at pictures of my little girl from just one year ago and can't believe she has grown so very much.  Life seems so different now than it was twelve months ago.  I had so many fears and doubts about her arrival, about how she would handle this crazy family.  But looking at her today, I know she will be a strong, compassionate lady one day.  Audrey has completed our family.  We are so proud of you, sweet girl.  We love you with all of our hearts!!

Heaven blew every trumpet and played every horn
on the wonderful, marvelous night you were born.

Happy birthday to sweet Audrey! I know this wasn't how you wanted to spend her birthday, but I love that you made it as special as possible, given the circumstances. I think growing up those sort of things will make all of the difference in her life.

Praying for good things over this coming year for the entire family.

Much love,
Stacie Smith
