This past July 4th, our oldest daughter turned 11 years old. Being Canadians, July 4th doesn’t mean a whole lot here, but it has ever since our oldest daughter was born. I was thrilled when I heard "it’s a girl!" I thought for sure we were going to be blessed with a boy. Not that it mattered really, I love my boys just as much! Her names means "Princess pledged to God".
I was now a mama and it was such a wonderful feeling!
I remember being filled with awe when I gazed at our little daughter that day.
One week old
Our princess came to work with me. Both hubby and I were working here at the time. I sewed anything from violin case covers to the large bass bags. Anything that had to do with the stringed instruments. She was such a happy baby and was easy to have there with me at work. I had a carriage that she would nap in and then I had a playpen set up for her. Once she started to crawl, we then moved the sewing to my parents place, since that is where we were living at the time. It was just days before her first birthday that we moved into our very first home! The sewing came along with us. Just before our second daughter was born, my Aunt started to work for us and do all the sewing.
Her love for books started very young and she still can be found with a book in hand,
or at least one not very far away.

She loves to read and her favourite animal is horses. She is looking forward to the day we can buy a horse! She is also very interested in learning about bugs and that sort of thing. She is a treasure and we are so thankful that she is apart of our family.
We love you, our dear princess, and we pray that the Lord will guide and keep you in His way!
I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go:
I will guide thee with mine eye.
