To Abi, on your 12th Birthday!

 Abigail Ann, You are becoming such a lovely young woman - it is a pleasure to watch you grow up and see how things I've seen in you since you were little (creativity and kindness) become even more refined.  You have developed a love of reading which shocks and delights me!  It is so fun to watch you get excited to explore worlds in books. You are kind and generous.  You often share things with siblings that is above and beyond generous.  You think of others often before yourself.  You also have a fiery side that comes out in a protective way and it is also fun to watch personality just flow out of you.   You are noticing boys a lot more and watching you navigate that whole new world has been delightful.  You are handling it well and I'm glad to watch you mature. Abi, you delight me and I am so thankful you are mine.  You are helpful and kind.  You are thoughtful and generous.  You are a firecracker and a delight.  Keep it up young one.

To Faith, on your 5th birthday!

   Faith,  You are SO excited about turning five!  Your morning started with helium balloons in your bedroom thanks to your Dad.  Then we had coco puffs and lucky charms.  For a minute you believed that I forgot to make you a birthday cake, but my friend Christina made you the coolest unicorn cake.  You were delighted!  You have changed so much in the past year.  You are fiesty and independent but still love to give hugs and kisses.  You play hard, love hard, and desperately want to be one of the big kids.  I think though, you are still ok with some of the extra attention and privileges that being little gets you.  Daddy took you to get your ears pierced - you picked out little diamond earrings and they are adorable!  You are so excited and I was surprised that you were so excited to go!    I am so excited to see how you are getting so big and just enjoying life!  Keep it up princess!  Love, Mama Birthday cake: Unicorn cake!
