OH, my gosh.
Bittersweet, I tell you, bittersweet.
I am so happy she is growing up,
I love the age she is right now,
she's full of questions and excitement for everything.
She is and has always been such a joy in our family!
I can't explain it, they all, of course bring joy
to our family, but this one in particular,
she is just so full of joy,
she exuberates it!
(is that a word?)
She has a energy that just spreads to all she meets!
Yet, it seems like yesterday
I brought her home from the hospital
And I wanted to keep her like this forever:
(look at that sweet baby)
I think I became a different mama after she was born.
Things were just easier by the 5th baby,
I, now, had older ones to help
(I could go to the bathroom without worrying about the next toddler killing the baby)
I tell you, one of the biggest blessings of each child
is each different personality.
She was also my first internet baby,
so go ahead,
reminisce with me,
check my archives in August 2009
In the meantime,
can you guess what kind of birthday party we are having today?
I told you she was full of joy!
waterwomen, I mean watermelon!)
Happy birthday my sweet, sweet little honey!
