Sweet Addison, on the night you were born...
Our church had performed their last night of the Christmas pageant. Your excited daddy worked the sound board while Mawmaw Lesley, Mawmaw Page and your lovely mommy hurried to the hospital. I knew the second I received the call that you were coming in a beautiful shimmer to this place you now call home. The entire family was more than ready to meet the new blessing that God had given us. We waited, and called anyone we could think of, and waited, and ate goodies, and waited, and made banners, and waited, and took pictures... until we heard them say, "she is ready to come!"
On the night you were born I knew that you were someone that God had perfectly pieced together for your precious mommy, daddy, and lil Austie. I watched your mommy giggle the time away and thought that she has never looked more beautiful... because of you. I saw your daddy nervously pacing knowing that he was about to see the lil gift that he had waited for, for almost 9 months. Your mawmaw Lesley cried and jumped up and down, and mawmaw Page nibbled on her fingers anxiously. The doctor smiled extra special that night... the nurses were more giddy than usual.
On the night you were born God already knew the numbers of hairs on your head and the wrinkles on your precious body. He knew your purpose and gently whispered, "I love you, Addison... go and love as i have loved." The angels held their breath and your precious meemaw watched from above, waving ferociously with that precious laugh escaping her lips. They saw how beautiful you were and rejoiced in God's creation.
On the night you were born, I have never been a prouder aunt. I clicked away at the camera, cried, and gently held my belly, knowing that in 3 weeks your little cousin would be here too. I loved you the second I knew you were inside your mommy's tummy... and I have loved you more every day since then.
On the night you were born, the world was shown Love...
