S: ryleigh mckenna griffin - the first year
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.

9: You were changing everyday. But one thing pretty much stayed the same..... you slept all day long. I loved it when you slept on me or next to me. But you looooved sleeping on daddy's chest. There were a few nights where you did not want to sleep, but daddy'd put you on his chest and you were usually out like a light. You were so very alert when you were awake. It was obvious you were just taking everything in. Your umbilical cord fell off when you were 2 weeks old.
