How did she get to be 9?

It's true, somehow Kessiah hit 9! Next year she will be double digits! I feel like she is really growing up, no longer quite the child she used to be. I feel more and more the importance of being a good mother to my children and showing through my example what it means to be a good wife and mother.

I think back to the first time I saw her. We walked into the hospital room, she was to my right in a hospital bassinet pushed against the wall. She had the most perfect face with lots of dark hair and dressed in a pink outfit that was a bit too big. It almost took my breath away to think that she would be going home with us! She has been such a blessing to our family and I can't imagine not having her with us.

She is such a good example for her younger siblings. She is becoming quite a good piano player and we enjoy listening to her practice...sometimes we even dance to her music! She loves to read and does well at her school work. She enjoys art and drawing. She has had fun playing sports and always wants to participate in the next one coming up.
