She came bouncing into our lives on a cold, December afternoon eight years ago (12/9). With Christmas music playing quietly in the background, I looked down at her and couldn't quite believe that she was here and that she was mine. A daughter. Our second child and first daughter. While we secretly had known she was a girl, the joy of finally actually seeing her made my heart melt.
She has brought much happiness and love to our family. Full of life and spunk, she has always made us laugh. At 18 months, she started calling herself "Bobby" and everything out of her mouth for the next year was "Bobby Do." She had a little pixie haircut and oh was she a firecracker! She always asks us, "Was that when I was a Bobby Do?" She is smart, funny, imaginative and caring. Stubborn and headstrong too. Drama? Oh, yes. Ignoring mom? Ah, yes. She embraces life and all it as to offer. She is a social girl and loves a party. "What are we doing today?" and "Can I have a friend over?" are her two favorite sayings. She is kind to her friends and people like to be around her.
So, my sweet girl, momma loves you with all her heart and wishes you the happiest of birthdays. Hugs and kisses to you.
