Hannah's Happy Birthday!

On Tuesday Hannah turned 7 years old! This blog post is in honor of her.

Hannah is such a little princess and she chose a homemade princess cake to make together, how fitting!

We had a party for her in the evening. Here they are playing hot potato... but with a stuffed animal.
Musical chairs is a dangerous but fun game! :-D
Canteen time!
Hannah is blessed to have friends from Cameroon, America, Germany, etc! Jesus loves the little children, all the children of the world!
One of Hannah's Cameroonian Aunties gave the kids Cameroonian outfits.
Daddy took his princess out to eat on their annual birthday date. She is blessed to have such a good daddy. 

She's a cutie!

She likes carrying babies on her back, African style.

Hannah when she was a month old.

I think she was 2 months here. She looks a lot like Carys!
Our princess at 4 months old. 
She was such a happy baby and is now a happy 7 year old!

Here's a few fun facts about Hannah:
- Jeremiah and I were in India when we found out we were pregnant with her.
- She was born in Ghana, Africa. My water broke, contractions started, about an hr later she was born in a little clinic.
- The nurses thought she was breach b/c she was bald therefore they thought it was her tushy coming out. HA! Good thing Grandma Sherrie was there to tell them otherwise!
- Her middle name was given to her b/c her grandma Sharon's middle name is Ruth.
- At 3 1/2 yrs she could quote James Chapter 1, 2, & 3. There are people who heard to prove it! 
- A month before her 4th birthday she started to read.
- At 5 she ran a mile in 12 minutes without stopping. She's not naturally athletic but when she sets her mind to do something- watch out world!
- She is my strong willed child and wears me out e-v-e-r-y day. But I know as we keep training her up in the Lord she will use her strong will and be one awesome woman of God. She is already a big help in the ministry!
- She picks up on languages and accents very quickly and can make friends anywhere.
- She is the most talkative and persistent little girl I know.
- She has a big heart and is very compassionate. She will give you the clothes off her back if she thinks you need it...literally.
- She has taught me more than she will ever know and I love her with all my heart. Though she wears me out everyday I look forward to seeing her smiley face every morning.
- The world would not be the same without her!
