Double the Blessing

Ten years ago today God blessed us with our second baby girl.  Hannah was just a few days over 1 when Sarah joined us.  We didn't know until she was born if we were having a boy or girl.  We were a bit surprised when it was another girl, but not disappointed.  Who could be disappointed when handed such a precious and sweet baby?  Sarah looked so much like her sister at birth, and many people still ask if they are twins.  I tease that they are as close as I can get to having twins! Our doctor was actually a bit upset that we had them so close together and we had some complications at the beginning of the pregnancy, but God spared her and we were so thankful.

Sarah is a quiet and thoughtful girl.  We tease her for being inevitably the last one to finish anything: eating, getting ready to go somewhere, and such, but she is the first to think of a kind thing to say or do.  She loves to show her affection for others and is an encourager and faithful friend.  She loves to sing and read and write.  She is also our little fish in the water.  She sinks like a rock, so she learned first to swim under water! 

Sarah is a thinker and pays such close attention to the words of others. I think that is why God opened her heart to His Word at such an early age.  "Be still and know that I am God."  Psalm 46:10  We are so thankful that Sarah has repented and trusts Jesus as her Savior! We look forward to discipling her in the years to come.

Though more serious in general she is not unknown to be a bit silly too!

She may be the last to finish but she does her best!

 Baptism day!

Sarah is often taking pictures, but at this party Todd caught a quick picture of our shutterbug.

We love you Sarah and look forward to all of God's plans for your future! 
Happy Birthday from Mommy and Daddy!
