It has been 5 years since Elizabeth came home. I can't believe she came home this small and now she is 5 years old. Elizabeth is smart, articulate, kind, funny and loving. She works so hard at everything she does and never complains when it is time to work. Parenting Elizabeth is an honor and a blessing, it is her personality that makes parenting her so easy. Even on the days that are trying she makes you laugh and smile and appreciate every ounce of her.
We try to make sure we have a little celebration on the anniversary of the day she came home as that day really means the most to us, it was the day she was ours. We asked her what we should sing to her as Happy Birthday was not fitting, Elizabeth wanted me to sing the song from one of her favorite books 'I love you forever' by Robert Munch.
'I love you forever,
I like you for always
As long as I'm living my baby you be'
We love you Elizabeth.

Happy Homecoming Day, Elizabeth! I love your spirit because I think that everyday with our cute little amazing kiddos is cause for celebration, but some days are even more special than all the others.

Awwww! That book and song was repeated in our home, too.

Can I say she is pretty, too?

Among all her lovely traits, I bet I know where she gets them. Good job, Mom (and Dad)! Congrats to you all!

That is the perfect song. We must have pasted in the hall ways as Ashley was admitted to the NICU on day 2 March 28th you would have been preparing for discharge. I love that you celebrate that special day and what a fitting song.

Happy homecoming day to you all! I love that book! I used to read it to my older kids. It's so precious- just like Elizabeth.
