Happy Birthday, Rhys! I cannot believe you are two years old already. Two years ago today…..well, I’ll spare our readers the details. You have brought your Daddy and I SO much joy through your sparkling eyes, big heart, and toothy-grinned playfulness! You truly live up to your name: enthusiastic. Our little babbling brook. Our meadow.

I am so blessed to be able to see the world again through a child’s wide eyes, to know what the real pleasures of life are, and to walk each day with you. You are a precious gift to us, and your Daddy and I thank God every night for you. You were THE best surprise, ever. You undo us. So here’s to you, tootie. Lord, help us to raise her as You would: to love You and serve others happily, with unwavering faith, with unquestioning obedience and trust in You: always, as a child, with a full heart.

Love you, Rhysie Piecey.

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY RHYS! i will have to have Isaac now officially make the switch from referring to you as “baby rhys” and just go with “rhys” or better yet “rhysie Piecey”… he would remember that in a heart-beat! Two year olds are cool!!!

    The Lord is good and Rhys is certainly a blessing from Him…she reminds me of you, Lindsay, when you were two…such precious times. I, too, can sometimes see through the eyes of our two year old little granddaughter.
    Happy Birthday Rhys!!

    It was great to see you last weekend- Rhys is getting a little bigger and stronger. And it’s nice not to feel the huge diaper underneath her when I pick her up anymore. Too bad Dad got soaked… :0)

    And congrats on your news, Lindsay- shoot for January 3rd, please. :0)

    Yeah for Rhys! And yeah for future stories from Michael telling the story of baby number 2’s birth! How I regret not video taping his telling of that great day! 🙂
