Nine

I would be remiss if I didn't mention that this girl....

...is nine years old today.

She is a precious gift from God and we are SO thankful to have her.

She is helpful and loving, generous and compassionate. She is the most tender of all our daughters and tears come easily for her. Not in a crybaby sense, but in an endearing God-given gift that allows her to feel deeply.

She loves cute clothes (she hearts Target very much), American Girl dolls, donuts, hamburgers with ketchup, Coke (hmmm...wonder where she gets that), fixing her own hair and most of all... reading books.

This is her last year to be in the "single" digit numbers and it's hard for this momma. It's hard to watch my chubby baby girl start growing into a beautiful young lady. Monk and I want to stop the growing cause we like her just fine right where she is. Unfortunately for us, it doesn't work that way.

We know God has a special plan for this girl and that's enough for us.

Sis

Happy Birthday Sis! We love you sweet girl!
