On turning 4 years old

Dear Josie,

I can’t believe it. You’re 4 years old.

You’ve been such a source of joy in my life.

On May 27, 2008, you came into this world. We named you Josie Layne Widick. We had a hard time settling on a name for you. Ultimately, we named you Josie after my father, Joe, and one our favorite Bible characters, Joseph. The middle name I think is pretty obvious where it came from. My mom’s name is Elaine, my name is Lane, and I wanted to pass it on to you.

When you were first born, you had a hard time gaining weight. We had to feed you through a syringe so we could make sure you were eating. I think at this point in your life, that would still be easier (mealtimes are a chore with you!!). You definitely take after your daddy with pickiness while eating.

I’m so proud of who you’ve already become. You’re full of life. You have the wildest imagination. You’re so very happy.

Thank you for being such a sweet little girl!

Happy birthday to my dear sweet little girl. Don’t grow up too fast!
