Today you hit the double digits!! How quickly time flies my sweet girl. I still remember the day when you were born. 5 weeks early and 6 pounds even, you were the most beautiful thing I had ever seen.
People always tell me how sweet you are and how kind you are. You kind of just came that way. Our conversations are starting to turn into real people conversations. You ask me deeper questions, more important questions. Questions that have harder answers. Sometimes I can't give you the answers, but I will always try to be honest with you.
Life is going to continue to get more complicated for you. Finding friends that are keepers, figuring out your math homework and trying to decide what sports/hobbies/instruments you should pursue.
But never stop smiling. Life is worth enjoying. Even the hard parts.
Thank you for being a fabulous big sister. Probably the best ever. You can be in the middle of a fight with me, and Ms. Laney will toddle up to you and you will smile and giggle with her.
We always say "FAMILY FIRST" in this house, and you try so hard to live it. I know it's not always easy, but thank you for trying. You are a great example to your siblings and to me.
So if I could I would slow down time, hold you tighter, laugh harder, and keep you forever.
Thank you for being my first masterpiece.
