A Gift for My Granddaughter

A Gift for My Granddaughter

You turn two years old today (yayyy!!) and even though we will not get to be a part of the celebration with you and your family, you are still here in our hearts and we imagine what we would do to celebrate it with you. I’ve walked isles of toys and clothes and imagined buying them for you. I guess I’m just saving money for the day you will enter our lives again. J  Will you ask for a pony?

Here is one of the gifts I would have liked to give you

You were born with problems, there were tubes and monitors on you from birth, surgery the next day but here you are 2 today!
You weighted 5.9 oz and you were 20” long –  even with all those tubes you were the most beautiful baby I’d ever seen…..but then again so was your mom and your Aunt  lol – our family just can’t help having beautiful babies!

How grateful we are to God.   Savannah you are fearfully and wonderfully made (Psalm 139:14). Do you still have the quilt we had made for you?

Your Grandpa Rob, and Aunt Lena and I love you with all our hearts. We think of you and your mom and dad daily and lift up prayers.

These quotes make me think of you -

‘A granddaughter is a gift from above ... one to cherish and to love.”  Author Unknown

“Grandchildren are the dots that connect the lines from generation to generation.”  Lois Wyse

"As a reward for being a great mother  you become a grandma and when you have great grandchildren that's because you are a great grandma!!"

"Grandchildren are a grandparent's link to the future, and grandparents are the child's link to the past." Author: Unknown

I can tell you my sweet Granddaughter that your mommy was a joy to raise.  Aunt Lena and I enjoyed every moment we had with her. There were sibling squabbles but that’s normal, forgiveness came and off they went.

 So I know one day you will get to hear about their adventures and how people always thought they were best-friends before they knew they were sisters.
 I’m so grateful to God for making me Lena and Amanda’s mommy and blessing me with a wonderful husband (your Grandpa) because you were born out of this love too. 
You are loved so very much! 
Hugs, tickles and kisses to my little Savannah.

We love cats and your Aunt loves butterflies so here’s a Birthday wish from all of us!!

My beautiful Savannah – HAPPY BIRTHDAY !!

Here’s your cake. I know they had your room decorated in frogs, hope you like it!!!
