This is the intro page to my baby girl's album. After 2 boys, we were SO thankful to be blessed with a baby girl to love! There is a pull out folder behind the picture (where the ribbons are) that pull out to reveal hidden journaling. TFL :)
Journaling Reads 'I will never ever forget how amazing the day that you were born was. I donít think Iíve ever anticipated anything so much! I had been hoping and praying for the 9 months I carried you that you would be healthy of course, and secretly I was praying all along that you would be a girl. Not that I wouldnít have been just as in love with you if you had been a boy, but I didnít even realize how much I wanted a girl until the day you came into our lives. On that amazing day of your birth, I finally realized how very badly I had wanted a sweet little baby girl to love. And then all of a sudden you were here in our life. I was hearing you cry, hearing daddy and the doctors tell me that you were a girl, that you had dark hair, that you were a good size, and all I wanted to do was jump right off that operating table and grab you and see for myself!! All I could do in that moment was just cry, the tears of complete and utter happiness. I could not believe that God had blessed me so abundantly. Not only did he give me a third child that was perfectly healthy, but he gave me my only daughter. Finally, they brought you to me and as I was finally able to set my eyes on you for the first time it just about took my breath away. You were so incredibly beautiful, even more so than I had pictured you might be. I kept thinking that at any minute I was going to wake up from this dream I was in. Could someoneís life really be as perfect as it was for me in that moment? And as they took you away to get you cleaned up I began to realize that I wasnít dreaming. My life was actually as going to be blessed with a little girl, my sweet little Alexandra that I had prayed for. That day, and every day since then, I have thanked God for you. You are the most perfect, precious, beautiful, sweet, and special little girl I have ever set my eyes on. You are the best thing that could have happened to our family, we are now perfectly complete. I love you my baby girl!'
This was a scraplift of Sharden's 'Miss a Beat'. You can see where I got my inspiration here... http://www.scrapbook.com/myplace/index.php?mod=galleries&u=38763&m=view&id=842387&page=1&f=1
