Today is our sweet daughter's 11th birthday!!!! Wow! Where did that huge, heart wrenching feeling of loosing control of time, come from! She was once this little.... It can't have been that long ago?...
...and we were, and of course still are, completely and uncontrollably smitten with her...
She is our eldest child. Our only daughter.
...and is a complete and utter BLESSING for our whole family. We love her so very much!!
Darling girl, we are so proud of you. You are amazing, beautiful, talented and so, so clever! I am bursting at the seems with pride and love for you. Your generous and gentle nature, blooms with each passing year. Thank you for being my daughter.
But darling, promise me this... please stay little for just a bit longer. I don't think my heart can handle you growing up so fast.
