Our little girl was born at home, in a tub of warm water, face up...looking right into our eyes.
It was one of those surreal moments I will NEVER. EVER. FORGET.
For days, we ooooo-ed and ahhhhhh-ed over her. We found ways to attach bows to her tiny head and dressed her in lots of pink!

Kedesh Elizabeth has continued to bring us joy and laughter. Her smile is one of those smiles that radiates and lights up an entire room.
AND SHE SINGS OR TALKS NONSTOP!
She talks to herself in the mirror while she washes her hands or brushes her hair...
She sings while she plays with her toys...
She talks to herself (or anyone who will listen) as she walks outside...
She sings as she plays on the swing...
And as she floats in the pool...
And if she is sitting at the dinner table, there is a constant little buzz of noise from her end of the table.
If she falls asleep, we suddenly realize how quiet it gets! I'm not kidding! (It's like the sound a house makes when the electricity goes out. Everything shuts down and you realize the quiet is a little eerie!)
I JUST LOVE THAT ABOUT HER!
Kedesh adores her big sister probably the most, because they are a lot alike and share a special sister-bond.
But her big brother, Caleb, is no doubt the one she runs to when she is seeking a special favor or protection from someone "being mean." Her "Blub", as she calls him, (She couldn't say "Caleb" for years.) will always give her that sweet snack she wants, or pick her up and love on her if someone has hurt her feelings. She has him wrapped around her little finger and she knows it!
And, Caleb...he just smiles. He loves her to pieces.
When Kedesh was a baby, Caleb was always the sibling who could get her to fall asleep on his chest. He was the one who would hold her for hours while he read in the evenings. So, they really do have a special bond.
So, today, we celebrate 4 years with our little gift - our beautiful little girl!
Happy 4th Birthday, Kedesh! We are so glad God gave you to us!
