Rauly's birthday isn't till Friday (Nov. 30th), however I don't think I'll have a chance to post this then so I wanted to go ahead and put it up. Tonight, her Aunt Jenny is taking her to Build-A-Bear and Rauly's "My Little Pony" b-day party is Saturday night so I'll share pics of that next week. Hope you all have a good weekend!

1st Peter 3:4 says - "You should clothe yourselves instead with beauty that comes from within, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is so precious to God."
Rauly, it is hard to believe two years have gone by! The 9 month pregnancy, the colicky months, learning to eat, walk, run...learning to talk, developing a sense of humor, your first prayer (although it was gibberish to us, I believe God was able to interpret it!),...I could go on and on about all the many firsts and experiences we've watched you have! What a true blessing you are and we are so thankful God gave you to our family to raise!! You complete me in a way I never even knew I needed....a daughter....a little girl to teach how to be a lady some day. It warms my heart when you show interest in girly-things that only you and I can do together...like make-up, blow-dryers, jewelry and nail-polish...but more so, it fills me with joy to see you already expressing the soft gentle nature that God gave you. You have such a wonderful balance of strong-will and tenderness and your daddy and I believe you will make a wonderful leader one day! You are truly the perfect mixture of your daddy and I (and I think I should include your Aunt Jenny in that as well!). You have your daddy's blue eyes, blonde hair and face shape,...you have your Aunt Jenny's gentle and determined ways, and you have my chin and long legs! :) Can you see the pride beaming off of your families faces when they look at you? You, my darling girl, are loved in the truest sense! Rauly-girl...Happy 2nd Birthday!!!
