Savannah Jo – ELEVEN MONTHS!

Savannah Jo:

Every time  I look at you and watch you play, my heart swells with pride. And yet, I know my love for you is a mere shadow of the way God adore us. The Bible teaches that He formed us in his image, that He delights in us. Savannah, I’ve been mere feet away from the “king of the jungle” in Africa, watching them prowl through the wild grass. I’ve stood in the wilderness of southern India watching the sun set in all its majesty. I’ve been in the middle of the ocean with no land in sight, overcome by the vastness of it all. But, nothing, compares to how amazing you are – God’s creation. Watching you learn and soak up every sight, sound, and texture around you is nothing short of amazing. Every day, you are discovering new things, forming new sounds from your mouth and mimicking what Dad and I do. You are growing SO fast. Man is by far God’s greatest creation, unmatched in the Universe. Watching you causes me to praise Him. You are a testimony to your Creator.

Your first birthday is fast approaching and every time I think about, I get emotional. You’re not going to be a baby forever. Tonight, we tried on dresses from your closet for your birthday party. One day we will go together to try on dresses for your wedding day. I’ll try not to be too opinionated, because I’m sure you’ll have different tastes than me, because…well you’re my daughter 🙂

I love you. More than you’ll ever know.
