S: Our First Year with Victoria 2007-2008

BC: You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knot me together in my mother's womb. Thank You for making me so wonderfully complex! Your workmanship is marvelous and how well I know it. You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion, as I was woven together in the dark of the womb. You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in Your book Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed how precious are Your thoughts about me O God! How vast is the sum of them. They are like grains of sand. And when I wake up in the morning I am still with You.

FC: our first year with

1: My beautiful baby girl, you are my world. Your first day, at birth was the first of the rest of mine on earth. Your eye's so brown, just like mine, are like a thousand crystals reflecting the sky. Like pearly gates passage to your beautiful mind, and no one can deny a smile once caught in their shine. I could never deserve you, only thank God your mine and always be here for you, one step at a time. You're my silly sweet heart, sunshine on a rainy day. You're every laugh ever laughed then caught in a jar and displayed. Your personality is sassy at best, I'll tell you, "No" and you'll smack me a couple of times then lovingly lay your head on my chest. How could I be mad at you, why even try, to say you didn't have daddy wrapped would be a lie. We loved you since you were new, all the way through, and continually do. I love you so much baby girl Love, Daddy
