Our baby girl recently celebrated her third birthday. It is hard to believe three years have passed since we brought our teeny, tiny, screaming bundle home from the hospital. She cried all day. She cried all night. Nothing worked to soothe her. Then finally, almost a year later, her little body overcame its obstacles, and she traded her tears for smiles. She blossomed into a bright, cheerful, loving little girl who is curious about the world around her, who refuses to be left behind by her older siblings, and who is thrilled to finally be three years old. What a gift she is, and her family is ever-so blessed by the smiles that radiantly shine on this little one's face every day.
Thanks to my daughter for capturing these smiles.
