The grown-up 4 year old

Today, the lovely Mylin Hadassah celebrates being 4 years old

This one, I cannot believe.  4 is so old.  I truly miss the days of it being just me and her around the house – just the girls.  I didn’t realize how precious of a gift that time was!

We chose the meaning behind her name, Mylin (a family name), to mean ‘Heart’s desire.’  To think back to her birth story and our lives transforming from a couple into a family brings a lump in my throat and also a smile to my face.  I LOVE LOVE LOVE those first few hazey, drunk-with-love days of having a brand new baby.  If for no other reason, I will keep having more out of the sheer addiction to how sweet it is to have those who are so fresh from God, so near to us.  Mylin ushered that entire love into our lives.

Mylin, God chose you to be the big sister for very specific reasons.  He knew you would be the best at it!  We are so thankful for your mature manner of handling responsibility,  your growing humility, and your love for all things ‘BABY’ – especially your 2 brothers!  You keep us on our toes and make us hit the ground running many days – but we would never want to experience a day without you.  We are so grateful and honored to be your parents.  What a privilege and opportunity 🙂  We love you!
