Sage is 12!!!

A woman, when she is in labor, has sorrow because her hour has come; but as soon as she has given birth to the child, she no longer remembers the anguish, for joy that a human being has been born into the world. John 16:21
Sage Merced Slee
Happy 12th Birthday!!!
Where did the time go Sagey?? Just yesterday you were running around, your hair wild, shirt off, picking up bugs to scare me, just like Bubu!! Now you are this beautiful, sweet, gracious, young lady! 
 From the moment I found out I was pregnant with you, I knew you were a girl and your name would be Sage! Without even finding out your sex, I had your nursery completely girly! And after 12 long, gruesome hours of labor, out came my 5 pound 14 ounce, baby girl Sage!! I was just thanking God over and over, that you were safe, and soo amazing! The doctor just leaned on the counter and stared at you and I for over 30 minutes, even the nurses thought it was strange, but I think he was memorized by my sweet baby girl, and how thankful I was! Or he could have just been waiting for your placenta to come out! But we'll remember it the other way!
Your Dad was soo happy to have a little girl
We are soo proud of you Sage
That's our Sage! Too fast slow down! 
More beautiful on the inside (hard to imagine)
 Your taller than me, wear all my clothes, but not shoe's, your 3 sizes too big! Mommas crying as I type this, I'm still just as thankful as the day you were born as I am today! Love you

P.S today is my Driftwood project at my house, at 10, if your in the area come over refreshments, and just good fellowship!! Pictures to come tomorrow!!
