Wow, another year has passed since you came into my life. This year hasn't always been easy for you. You had a lousy teacher in 2nd grade which I'm truly sorry for. I sure hope I've made up for that by insuring that you got a great 3rd grade teacher. You have come such a long way with your reading and I'm so proud of you. I do hope you are really beginning to enjoy reading more because it is so important.
You became a big sister again. You have handled that so well. Such a good big sister always trying to help out with your little brother and sister. I'm sure Alyssa will look up to you and worship you as much if not more than CJ does.
You continue to inspire me. Inspire me to be more open and to try new things. You handled the transition to a new school with a bunch of children you didn't know so well. You have made some wonderful friends this year and I'm so happy for you. I love how much you love life and try to make the best of every situation. While you are care free and sometimes that drives me crazy I think a part of me also envies that you don't let things bother you. I just hope you can learn a little balance with being care free and responsible. That will come in time. You've got time to learn that.
I hope that you have a wonderful year this year. I hope that you continue to grow and be healthy and loving. Happy 9th birthday to my sweet, life loving, beautiful little girl! I love you!
