After many, many long hours, she was in my arms. As I held her in those first seconds of her leaving my womb, she gazed at me as if she too had been waiting to see my face. [caption id="attachment_807" align="alignleft" width="225" caption="first moments"][/caption]
And now my beautiful little girl is three years old! She is such a gift and such a blessing to our family. I love seeing her sweet, gentle spirit and watching how her character is developing. And of course she never fails to amaze us with her humor and her quick mind!:)
When I asked her what she would like for her birthday day, Aneliese said that she wanted pink cake like Farmer Brown's birthday and ice cream.
We still wanted to get her a small gift and since she loves games, we bought her a handmade wooden memory game.
A few weeks ago Aneliese asked if she could pick out some material for a skirt for both her and Cecily so that they could match. I finally got it made just in time for her birthday so she was happy.
