Mika Lynn - Her First Year

One year ago today I was at the hospital at 5am to bring our baby girl into this world.
One last pic with her in my belly.

It was such a sweet time, I remember feeling so good and excited to meet her.

We were so ready to see this baby girl! After a really hard surgery, she was here!

Pure perfection. 

Mika Lynn - 
Darling baby girl... we love you more than words can ever express. You completed our family and have brought so much joy to our home and our lives. 
You have a special quality about you - one that draws people to you. And it isn't because you are a cute baby.... there is something else, something really special. We pray that it is something God will use in you to do great things.
Your big sisters think the world of you. You are very lucky to have two big sisters who love you so much. And it is quite obvious that you love them as well. You light up when you see Peyton or Laila and you giggle constantly at them. It was definitely love at first sight with them and they continue to grow their love for you.

We have enjoyed every day of this past year with you and look forward to watching you grow and change in the coming years. You are so special to us! 
You have the brightest eyes, the biggest smile, and the most infectious laugh. 
You love to lay your head on daddy's shoulder and it melts him every time. 
You love to snuggle Mommy for a minute before bed every night. These are moments I will treasure forever.
You love to hold our phones and you put them up to your ear to "talk". 
Your favorite word is one you made up : Guunga. We have translated it to mean "my parents are awesome". You can say a few other things (good girl, yes, momma, dada, thank you, night night) but guunga is your favorite word, by far. 
You love to eat and you love milk.
We feel like you are so petite and still look like a baby, but I know that will change in no time. 
You point at things that you want and it cracks me up. I don't know why, but I find it so funny when you point to the door because you want to go out of the room. Ha!
You are our Mika Lynn, Mika Lynny, Meeka Mika Mooka, Mika Boo, Boo Boo
and we LOVE you!

Happy Birthday sweet girl. We hope you feel as special and loved on your birthday as you are to us!
Love, Mommy and Daddy
