Happy Birthday, Emma!

August 27, 2009

My sweet Princess,

It only seems like yesterday that I was greeted by your sparkling blue eyes for the first time. I was instantly in love. You grabbed hold of our hearts and wouldn't let go.

We were all so proud and excited to meet you.Oh, the ribbons and bows, and little pink, frilly things that awaited you:
You observed the world in your own special way...and you still do.
You charmed everyone who met you with your big eyes and sweet smile.
You always kept us laughing.
Even when your mischievous side took over. (Note: Sprinkles are not babyproof.)
Your imagination and sense of wonder about the world are two of your most endearing qualities.
Your silly side is so much fun.You are an all-star in every way. We love you and are very proud to call you our daughter...
...even when things get a little hairy.
You are the smartest, most thoughtful, and creative young lady I know.
Oh, my precious, sweet baby of mine...
I can't believe that today you are NINE!

We love you, Emma!
Happy Birthday!

Happy birthday to Emma!

And a completely random thought...on first glance, I thought the cool whip container hat was a Shriner's hat. And I thought, where did they get one that small? :)
