Happy Birthday Isabela

Today we celebrate a remarkable little girl-- Isabela Falcone. It is her 4th birthday and with my new found realization of how serious her situation is, I praise God for each day that she is here. She has blessed and touched the hearts of so many people already in these few years. I am so glad that she and Cavett are friends and we love her parents too.

Two years ago I began working on this quilt. It was just before I was pregnant with Kendrick and I really thought I wanted a girl. I loved this quilt--the design, the colors, and it wasn't an easy one to put together. After about 5 months I had the whole thing pieced together, saftey pinned to the back, and ready to quilt when I learned I was having a boy. I put the quilt aside and didn't touch it again until about 2 months ago. As it sat there, I decided that I may never have a little girl and that someone special deserved this quilt. I knew it had to be Isabela.

Isabela, may you have many, many more years of birthdays to celebrate. You are a precious, beautiful child of God with a sweet and loving spirit. We are so blessed to have you as a friend.

I sooooooooooo LOVE my new quilt,I mean,Isabela's quilt! Again, I will always treasure not only the beauty of the quilt, but the sentiment behind it. Like we said tonight, I can share my girl with you, so long as you share your boys with me! I LOVE it, it will definitely be one of those things we run off with in case there's ever a house fire!
You made my day, Jennifer, what extraordinary piece of art!

P.S. Love the choke-hold from Cavett! I will never forget him standing by the bathroom door today waiting for her to finish her business so that they could get back to whatever she wanted to do! My kind of guy!
