Happy 2nd Birthday!!

Two years old today...



My Precious Cayman,

The most miraculous day of my life was two years ago today when you entered this world. I relive over and over in my mind those first moments of your life. I remember what I felt when I looked down at your tiny frame laying in my arms for the first time. It was a joy beyond measure. You were mine and I was so happy.

There are still no words that I could ever write that can fully touch the depth of what you have been to us these past two years. I try to think of a thousand different measures in which I can articulate the ways I relish in each day with you, my little Cayman, and the magical feeling that you are still here with us, on this side of Heaven. God has been so good to us and I often wonder, what did I ever do to get so lucky to live my life as your mama?

Happy 2nd birthday little one,

Always,

Your Mom

Happy 2nd Birthday sweet, sweet Cayman Cindy. It has been such a pleasure to watch you grow and thrive beyond measure. I also truly enjoy the inspirational journey your mommy and daddy have shared as we follow their unwavering love for you. I think your lovely lavendar outfit is just perfect for a birthday pose. You look too cute for words. I'm guessing your talented mommy made it for you. I can't wait to see more pictures from your birthday. Have a great day!!!
