I am sorry to have disappeared for so long. About two weeks ago, I came down with a cold which quickly developed into bronchitis. A doctor prescribed antibiotics for me, but I was almost completely wiped out until this past weekend.
Shortly after I became sick, Joseph and I learned that the congestion Evangelle has been experiencing since we brought her home had moved into her lower respiratory system, and she too, was put on antibiotics. This wasn’t exactly the kind of mother/daughter experience I’d been hoping we’d share!
Praise the Lord, we are both significantly better now, and I finally had the energy to sort through and post photos from Evangelle’s recent birthday. As you might imagine, we thought her first birthday was an event well worth celebrating. So celebrate, we did!
We wanted all of Evangelle’s closest friends and family members to be there, but that would have been quite a crowd for one birthday party…so we had two birthday parties instead. =) The first with family, and the second with friends who have loved Evangelle before they ever even saw her face. It was a special time for all of us.
Here are a few of the highlights from Evangelle’s first birthday experience…
It’s so hard to believe our baby girl is already one year old!
Every day God gives us with Evangelle is a gift, and we’re excited to see what He has planned for her future.
