Happy Birthday to my precious baby girl!

My little GEM how quickly you are growing up! 

I came across this poem last weekend that I had written about my daughter when she was 14 months old.  It is amazing how well I had her figured out at such an early age!

Loving You

Loving You Means…
Smiles from ear to ear, laughs and grins that steal our hearts,
watching an incredible mind at work.

Loving You Means…
Seeing a child in love with the world, always on the go, exploring, climbing,
investigating, always wanting to be outside.

Loving You Means…
Learning that even a  tiny child can be gentle with animals. Among your first words were "Dog" and "Kit-Kat".  When you see our pets your whole being lights up!

Loving You Means…
Always being on the go, seldom getting down for a nap, treasuring your warm snuggles all night long.

Loving You Means…
Being amazed that you can follow directions extremely well.  You are capable of so much, so early.

Loving You Means…
Observing a child who cannot wait to learn.  You cherishes books and treats them very gently.  You always want to write and draw.  You love to copy everything your big brother does!

Loving You Means…
So much more than words can express.  It means seeing a whole person in such a tiny body.  It means seeing so much potential and so much love all wrapped up in one adorable package!

Loving You Means..
Truly embracing a gift from God.
