To Baby, Love Hannah

If you know our baby-girl then you know how special she is. She leaves an impression on everyone she meets and it's not because of anything she does... it's because of who she is; and once you meet her, you never forget her. She's compassionate, and thoughtful, and sensitive, and has the gift of empathy, and she's funny, and smart.... and she's 3. Hannah doesn't miss much; she is somewhat aware of how tough this past year has been and she is more than aware that she is going to be a big sister. Four times this year, she has been ready and excited to bring home her baby brother or sister. Even though Joey and I, at times, have trouble understanding why our next baby hasn't come home yet, Hannah seems to 'get it'... we're waiting for HER brother or sister; not ANY brother or sister.

I want so badly for all of you to know Hannah and after tonight, you will...

What happened tonight was a moment that I will never forget. It's a memory that will be forever etched in my mind and this is a video that I cannot wait to show Hannah's baby brother or sister one day.

Getting ready for bed tonight I asked Hannah what songs she wanted to sing before bed...

"Mommy, I just want to sing songs to my baby brother or baby sister."

So we did....

(No idea why it's blurry...sorry :-( )


  1. You always make me cry. This is the sweetest thing!

    I wonder why baby Smith hasn't come home yet, too but I know that he/she is coming into the most amazing home.

    Stay strong and know you're being prayed for!

  2. Oh my goodness, this is so beautiful! I really appreciate your blog and hope Hannah's little brother or sister comes soon!

  3. You'll find him, L... you're being patient and picky; the best combo for finding the 'right' guy ;-)

    Thanks for your comment, KW!! She's a special girl.... and she's SO ready to be a big sister (can you tell?!?!) ;-)
