Birthday Girl!

Happy Birthday sweet girl!

One year ago today we were blessed with our little baby girl! I have a much longer post in the works that will include pictures from the day and the party. But for now, we'd love to hear from all of you who have followed Teagan's story. Even just your name and where you're from would be great. There are so many of you who have given us support, love and countless prayers this year and one day when we finally turn this into a book- I would love for Teag to read about everyone who loves her!

Dear Little Teagan,
Happy birthday to you! I love the picture of you in your little tu-tu. It reminds me of my girls, so girly!

You are a very precious girl. I hope that Natalie and I get to meet you someday. The first time I saw your picture, I couldn't get over how much you looked like Natalie. But you've grown and have taken on your own look. Those beautiful brown eyes just sparkle in the pictures. Your smile lights up your whole face!

I've enjoyed getting to know your mamma a little. She is a very special mom and has taken such good care of you! Where you are today can be contributed in part to her good care. I'm sure you will have a precious bond in the coming years.

Little Teagan, you are so special to God. He made you one of a kind and had your way planned out before your mom and dad could even comprehend you. (Psalm 139) Even though you have had to go through some pretty rough things the past year, He has not let any of it go unnoticed. Jesus has been the one that has carried you and your parents through the whole thing...and will continue to be there for you in the future. I hope that you become best friends with Jesus. He will stick by your side through everything! Above all, remember that God is Good...all the time! It is who He is-Good, even when your whole world might come crashing down around you.

So Teagan, the first year of your life is now behind you. Each day is a gift that your parents have learned to enjoy with you and we have been priviledged to share through this blog. May God continue to bless you and your family beyond measure in the days, months and years to come!

Happy 1st Birthday to our BFF heart sister!!! We love and adore you sweet Teagan and feel so blessed to have been a big part of your life this first year. God works in mysterious ways and bumping into your daddy at the Children's Tully's Coffee Shop a year ago today was truly amazing and began this special friendship. The Lord knew that our families needed each other on this new, unknown heart journey. Your mama has been such a huge support for me and I don't think I could have gotten through this first year without her.

God made you and Maddie with such special hearts, a mirror image of each others, and we'll always consider you two as such a pair since together, you two make 1 perfect, whole heart!!! We look so forward to watching you grow up with our Maddie and the wonderful times that will bring! Teags, you're so loved by so many and watching you at your first birthday party last night was such a special gift for us all. Thanks for letting us be a part of it!

So to our "second daughter", we're so proud of you and all that you've undergone and accomplished this first year... all of our love, friendship, and prayers for you on your most special day and in the years ahead! We love you Teagie!!!
Bryan, Katie, Jace, Caden & Maddie

Happy Birthday sweet Teagan,

What a joyful day it was when you were born! You looked just like your big brother and he was in love with you the very first time he saw you! as was your Nana and Pacaw! Just a few hours later, your heart journey began and all of us were right there beside you, loving you, praying so hard for you,laughing, crying and putting our trust in God that He had a plan for you and we would all be a part of it. Your first year of life has been an incredible inspiration to all of us, we have all grown spiritually, and have so much admiration for the constant devotion and selflessness that your mommy and daddy have had for you. Gavin has also been a loving and understanding brother, even at his young age, sensing that he needed to be gentle with you.
Our hearts were full last weekend as we celebrated your first birthday with such a happy, vibrant little girl. You were all smiles and enjoyed being the little person of honor! (even though you didn't know it) We are so thankful to God for all He has done in your life but especially for your fiesty spirit that has helped you fight for each big and little milestone! We look forward to your next year, watching you grow and walk and fill our hearts with even more joy and love! We love you so much! hugs and mushy kisses, Nana and Pacaw!

Sweet Little Teagan~ I think I've only left a comment one time before when you were in the hospital, but I've followed your heart journey from the beginning through your heart sister Maddie. It is so great to see you doing so well a whole year after your journey began. You are such a cutie & I love seeing pictures with you and Maddie together and knowing that together you make a "whole heart" special! I don't think it was chance or luck that your families were brought together, I believe it was providence (when God uses small, ordinary things to work out his bumping into ea. other @ the coffee shop:) You're a special little girl and I will continue to pray for you and look forward to watching you grow through your mommy's blog. Happy Birthday! Love, Krista

Oh miss Teagie...

Could we possibly love you any more??? I DON'T THINK SO!! You are such a sweet, happy, lovable, strong, wonderful baby! I met you and your wonderfully family after your second surgery. It was so nice for me to have your mom as a friend when I was there with my little girl. You were such a good little patient!! You have captured the hearts of so many- and will continue to do so for many years to come.

You are an inspiration, and I know you will continue to inspire everyone around you. We are so proud of you and the strength you have! I am so excited to watch you grow up and celebrate all of your victories.

Happy Birthday sweet Girl!!

Mimi and Mia
