Guinivere Eden is 2 years old today!

If you can imagine cheeks that are softer and squishier than the Pillsbury dough-boy's tummy…

If you've ever touched spun angel's hair or encountered liquid blue eyes…

If you have heard the highest, liltiest voice in the world ask, "How's your day?"  Or answer a most delightful and engaging, "Yes!" to any number of questions (which I keep asking just so I can hear this beautiful sound over and over)…

If you've watched a bundle of ruffles and lace running daintily behind big brother, Gavin, and cousin, Hunter, and yet have the least possible interest in anything they are up to…

If you've seen a giggling, happy girl who has caught  some one "misbehaving"  suddenly stop in her tracks, furrow her brow, point her finger and with great authority declare, "No!  Time out!"…then surely you have met Guinivere.

Guini is our 3rd grandchild (3rd time IS a charm!), but was our first granddaughter, full of goodness and grace and girly above all.  "NO!  Let go!" is how she interprets my favorite Matt Redman song, "Oh, no, You never let go."  Guini makes the whole family smile.

Happy birthday, my little Guini-muggins, our sweet princess.  You really are our own family royalty and we, mere pawns, are thrilled when you are passing by on important kingdom business but stop to hug and cuddle for a  moment and pat us on the back and let us know you love us.

You're two, now, princess.  Take advantage of it!

Love, Nonna

NOTE TO SELF:  Learn to say "yes" like Guini does – a lot more and with her unabashed enthusiasm!
