At precisely 10:35 pm, eight years ago today, 8lbs. 10 oz. little Brynn Joy entered the world, and literally stole our hearts. She was a surprise to Momma. I thought for sure I was carrying a little boy because this pregnancy exactly matched that of our son’s. Little did we know how much “Joy” she would, and still continues, to bring to our family.
I love her zest for life. I so appreciate her imagination. Girl has a memory for movie lines and song lyrics, just like her Daddy. She has the most breath-takingly blue eyes, and a giggle that could make the most cantankerous smile. She’s great with numbers, and can build things out of anything found around the house. She loves anything soft, and still enjoys cuddle time.
She’s brave. She’s strong. She enjoys sleep. She’s simply at home around water. She is drawn to pets. Her favorite animal at the moment is a zebra. She enjoys lots of desserts. She is comfortable around people of any age. She now officially marks off our last category of young-child-rearing… she is done with her car booster seat.
But most of all, we love her simply because she is ours, a gift given from heaven.
Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.
Happy Birthday Brynn Joy! We love you, always and forever!
