21 months.

Happy 21 months to our littlest, lovely lady.
 The little girl who has changed everything and continues to do so. 
The one who has brought hope, structure, chaos, joy, sorrow, awareness, friendship, laughter, pigtails, tears, freedom, worship, empathy, strength, truth, wisdom, growth, wonder, simplicity, and love.  So much true love. 
You are my special gift, Mabel and I adore everything about you.  You smell delightful.  You laugh every time you hear me.  You laugh at nothing most of the time but when you see me, it's because you want me and I know it.  You have shown me how to love without restraint and how to not let fear get in the way of every single second with someone that I cherish so deeply.  You have brought in me the courage to step up and fight.  You have set me free from the bondage of religion and idol thinking.  You have shown me the true purpose in life. 

Because you know nothing else, you have taught me how to love deeply, more passionately and with reckless abandon. 
I hope that in everything I do with you, you know how much I love you.

Happy 21 months, Mabel. 
The happiest of my entire life.

Mable is such a great combo of you & Daniel. I love how long her hair is getting. I know your Mable has taught you many things about life but I must admit, she has taught me many things as well....Love, good ole down to earth love. Faith. Hope & most of all she has taught me how to pray & give all my worries to our Lord. Mable and you are in my prayers daily....She is beautiful.
