HAPPY BIRTHDAY KENNEDY!!!

My beautiful Kennedy, today is your birthday! I know you've been telling everyone at school that it's your birthday every day - for months - but today it's really, truly, seriously your birthday! For real! I know you are excited to get to school today and tell all your friends, "I'm EIGHT!" and I know they will be happy for you. I can't wait to bring you cupcakes later and go out to dinner tonight.

You have grown so much this year, Kenn! You are doing so great in school and I've been in awe as I've watched the progress you've made there and at home and dance and everywhere else. You work so hard at everything you do, and I know sometimes it's frustrating and you feel like everyone else is doing things faster and better than you, but when you finally "get it", you shine so bright... and everyone sees that and rejoices with you. You have a lot of cheerleaders out there baby, more than you even know, and we're all cheering you on.

I can't wait to see what this next year holds for you... Kassidy and Kameron have officially dubbed you a "big kid" and I know you take that title seriously, so I know that this year will be another year of growth in every area of your life... just don't grow up too fast sweet girl, remember that no matter what you'll always be my Sincess. I love you so much birthday girl... a million, billion, trillion!

Love,
Mom

Oh, Kennedy. I know you're so excited about being eight!
And Renee, if you're anything like I am, you're doing a bit of reminiscing today about all that God has taught you through this precious gift from Him. May He continue to remind you that you are a great mom to Kennedy and all of your other kids too. "Let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us" (Heb 12:1)

Kennedy's face is one of about 3 that I see in my mind whenever the word "miracle" is used. Happy Birthday, sweet girl.

Hope you had the bestest birthday ever, Kennedy!
Praying right now!
1 Peter 1:18-19, 20 Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot (21) Who by him do believe in God, that raised him up from the dead, and gave him glory; that your faith and hope might be in God.

I'm a little late, but had to say Happy Birthday anyway, Kennedy. You are such a beautiful "big kid"!

Happy Birthday Kennedy!!

Renee. I was wondering if you have read Kelle Hampton's book, "Bloom" yet , and if so, could you relate to Nella's birth story? It seems you both were surprised at birth with a DS diagnosis and I can only imagine how scary that was for you both.

Happy Birthday 8th Birthday to you Kennedy! You are such a beautiful girl and as I was looking at your birthday party pictures I couldn't believe how mature looking you have gotten. Kassidy and Kameron are right - you are a big kid now!

Heather said...

Sweet girl, I remember when you were *only* five...I can't believe how much you've grown and how awesome you are! Thanks for letting us everyday people know how completely extraordinary kids like you can be! (And how very normal, too!). Sending love and prayers your way...have a happy happy eight!
