Happy #4 Bella

Isabelle just turned four years old! The last four years have been amazing, blessed, beautiful, work, lovely, and awe-inspiring. One of the most surprising things about parenting is that you really don't have time for enough reflection and enjoyment of your little blessings. That's what makes blogging so great. it kind of makes you take a step back and count your blessings.

And Isabelle is just that: our first little blessing. I can't believe she's growing so much. She is so beautiful and smart. We love to hear her take on life and her funny "isms" that you read occasionally on the Micheal Chronicles. We also love her fierceness and how she takes care of her baby sister. Everything about Isabelle is full of energy and life! Baby, we love you and love watching you grow!

Oh you said it so well, Danielle!

She is a little doll! Can't believe they're 4! (Nicki in 5 days). I love the picture from each year . . . hope you don't mind if I copy. : )

I can't believe she is already four. Seems like yesterday when we headed down to Columbus to welcome our little baby girl into the Payne (well, Michael, too) world. She continues to delight and confound us all - with her presence. She will be a force to be reckonwith for the Kingdom of God. I can't believe the changes in her looks especially between her second and third years. We are blessed to have her in our lives. Love and kisses OXOXOX

We love you, little Isabelle. You are a special creation of God... no one in the world quite like you! You grow more beautiful each year, and more full of personality!
