Today your 9

Today you are 9 years old.

With 9 year old feet.






And beautiful 9 year old blue eyes.





With a gentle and cautious spirit.





Thoughtful, caring and clever.






And loving. So very loving.






You have a contagious giggle.





And a snorty goofy laugh.





You watch and take it all in and carefully consider your options.





And your trying incredibly hard to stop picking at your fingers.





Happy birthday sweet girl. I love you more than you can ever imagine.

-Mom

My daughter turned 9 in April. And it's hard to believe that 9 years have pasted. It's nice to know that they can still be sweet at 9. Mine is....but I've heard some horror stories.

Awww, lots of Birthday Wishes to your sweet little girl! I hope you don't mind me adding that she looks just like her Daddy. One of my son's looks just like his Dad and the other looks just like me. Children are just amazing, all the way around.
Best of luck to her at not picking at her fingers, I know it's a hard habit to break, I wasn't able to stop until about age 14. You know, come to think of it, both my boys do it too!

Dana that would be sooooo awesome. Could you e-mail me your e-mail? I still don't know how to use my Mac and it won't let me link to yahoo for some reason. Thank you and I will talk to you later.
