Happy 5th Birthday Blaire Rose

5 Things I love about Blaire Rose:
  • Fearlessness
  • Trusting spirit
  • Strength of character
  • Strong emotions about everything
  • Affectionate by nature

Just 5 years ago, on Memorial Day, Blaire Rose Forbes came into our lives - quickly and quietly - she was my easiest labor and delivery, weighing in at only 7lbs 6oz. Her big brother was quite enamored with her, and she looks up to him for his reading and writing skills and he looks to her for her fearlessness. They had fun opening her presents today - she graciously let him read all the cards to her and giggled as he got to the funny parts. Paige, on the other hand, couldn't quite understand that the presents were for Blaire and not for her - but they worked that out and quickly got to playing make-believe with the Ariel princess set.

We are praying it stops raining as we have invited over 40 people for a BBQ today - otherwise we'll be nice, close and intimate like sardines! God has blessed us with a big house and we love to use it for His glory!
