For Danica

You are a year old now and I thought I would recap for you the first year of your life. You were so quiet and calm when you were born and you stayed that way for a long time. We could never get you to laugh but you smiled ALL the time. Everyone always commented on what a happy baby you were. From the very beginning you were sweet. SO SWEET! Somewhere around 6 months we would be able to get a chuckle out of you every now and again but you LOVED to make others laugh and if you noticed something you did made us laugh you would do it over and over again. You talked earlier than your sisters and pointed at things, trying to say what it was. It's been such a pleasure to listen to you and watch you interact.

You really love your daddy and like to goof around with him and say funny sounds to each other. Your madly in love with Nevaeh and she is so good with you. She has been taken by you since you were born. Selah is coming around and now you and her chase each other around and play peek-a-boo. You still crawl but have taken a few steps already and should be walking soon.

Your absolute favorite person is Mama though and I'm so happy about that. I love holding you and singing to you. In my arms is where you always want to be. Your such a pleasurable and good natured girl. One of the things you love is playing kisses with me. You give me a kiss and then I shout "ah hahaha I got a kiss." It kills you. You give a chuckle and do it again.

Grace is your middle name and gracious is what you are. You seem to be very patient and forgiving towards your sisters and us. When you get hurt or they are too rough with you, you do cry but then quickly give them a look of forgiveness after I've picked you up. I'm always taken back at your kindness towards others. It's something God put in you. I pray you will always remember to fear God and not man and so this gift will always give glory to where it belongs...JESUS.

Thank you, Danica Grace Webb, for entering my life and blessing me so. You are a treasure...a rare find.

  1. Hey Danica, this is your daddy here. I just wanted to tell you how wonderful it is to have you in our lives this past year. You know, we used to say how much your sister Nevaeh looked like me, until you came along. You are my spitting image and I love it. Your mama is right though you are wholly hers and no one else comes close. We can already tell you have a great sense of humor and a magnificent smile that lights up a room. I get it every day when I come home from work or if I have been gone for a few hours. You love your sisters and we love to see you watching them, we can tell you are always learning because you have a beautiful mind. Happy first birthday sweetheart.
