Dear Marie Love

So much has happened in this past year of your life. And not always easy things.

And you have changed. Wow, have you grown! I need you to stop that.

You are a true Jacobs and a true Johnson all at once. You are strong (in every aspect of the word!), athletic, loving, polite, beautiful, and so incredibly smart.

You love your family.

And can't resist hanging out with "kids." You make friends so quickly.

You are a tough girl. But you are a girly girl, too. You love princesses and dolls and being a "mommy."

Almost daily, your dad and I are struck by how much you've grown. You pick up on things instantly.

Some of your favorite things to do are sing, dance, swing, and play with your friends.

It's amazing what you do (and have done!) to your dad. You bring out the best in him. He adores you in a special way that only daddies can adore their baby girls. You are blessed.

I can't believe that it's been 3 whole years. We've survived and thrived through so much and I know we will continue to. You bring joy and laughter to this family at the most necessary times. Your laugh attacks even get Jack giggling uncontrollably.

When you tell Jesus about your day every night, my heart completely melts. I'm so excited for you to know Him personally and live your life glorifying Him.

You turned our world upside down, and I wouldn't have it any other way. I love you, my Goober, more than I will ever be able to express. Happy 3rd Birthday!!
