Happy Birthday Emma!

My sweet girl turned 7 today. She's quickly becoming a beautiful young girl with all the extra trimmings that come with that...helpfulness and sass, eagerness and stubbornness, knowledge wrapped up in innocence. She squeals when she's happy, growls when she's mad, guffaws when she laughs. She knows way more than I do (if you ask her), but still likes a good snuggle sometimes. She's reading at nearly a second grade level and is just absorbing everything she learns in school. Emma is taking gymnastics and wants to take tennis lessons...but she can also hit the golf ball further than me, loved playing t-ball this summer, and has no desire to take up dance like I want her to. She's all about kittens/cats this year and has a favorite stuffed animal named Purry. If it's girly and pink, she probably wants it. I am so proud to be her momma and hope that she'll continue to grow and learn and share life with her friends and family. She's a beautiful girl, inside and out! Love you, Emma!! Happy Birthday!!

What a princess girl! ;-) Tell Emma that I love the one of her in b/w where she's laying down. She has a gorgeous smile!
