my oldest girly girl is 9 today.
i know it sounds so cliche' but my life changed so profoundly on this day 9 years ago i can't even find the words to describe it.
my heart is filled with pride for her. she is a beauty, inside and out. she loves fiercely, is sensitive, funny, creative and genuine. she is full of awesome.
i recall the day she was born, i could not take my eyes off her. for real, no matter who was holding her in that hospital room i could not stop staring at her. she had a head FULL of black hair, sweet rosy cheeks and intense eyes already so alert, taking everything in.
and now she looks like this:
still a head FULL of hair (just not black), still sweet rosy cheeked, and beautiful eyes (slightly different colors) that take everything in.
