We are on a journey, sojourners on this earth. Let us share with you the highs and lows of our lives. Heaven is a sweeter place now that we have two beautiful granddaughters waiting there for us.

Happy Birthday Miss Lexi!

I could hardly wait to meet you Miss Lexi!! You were such an incredible surprise because we were all so sure that you were going to be a boy! But instead you were this dark haired little girl with the biggest eyes and the longest eyelashes.
It was so awesome to have you here at Christmas time and hold you and your cousin Kai at the same time. You will share so many of the same things as you grow up...going to school, graduating from High School....just 4 1/2 months apart.
You are totally your Mommy's little girl and I remember how excited I was when we were visiting in March and you finally let me hold you even if your Mommy was in the same room. Never have I had to work so hard to hold a grandbaby but that makes it even that much more special.
You are quick to smile, but not so quick to go to someone other than your Mommy.
Your Bupa had to work really hard to hold you too and even when he did have you, you weren't too sure about it.

We wish we didn't live so far away from you so we could do those every day things with you. But thankfully you know us now and your face lights up with smiles when you see us on Skype.
It seems hard to believe that you are one year old already our dear Miss Lexi! What a little sweetheart you are!
