nine (NINE?! can you believe it, nine?!) years ago today, I held in my arms a tiny and precious little blond girl...tiny little 6 + pound claire madeleine with a head full of blond hair, tiny and perfect little fingers and toes, and her cute little button nose. she was perfect to me and so full of personality (but we knew that even when she was in the womb at how she responded to EVERYTHING!)...we were all new to this family thing...yet, she arrived and it felt so natural. she was ours. the nurses nicknamed her "little miss attitude" seconds after she was born...she would scream from the nursery until her little cradle/tray made it's way to our voices...or so we like to think ;o)
I cannot believe how big you are, sweet girl!! In your short little life you have had so many experiences...more than so many adults...God has written such an amazing story for you, I cannot wait to see what He has in store for you...always be yourself...you are such a unique and amazing little person. We love you so much!!
**more pixies of my sweet girl to come...we are amid boxes...again...so that means that even the framed photos are wrapped up somewhere (however this one from daddy's wallet is pretty worn and cute!)...and, i have another fuh-uhnnnn medical procedure...all during our bday and Christmas week, so, pictures soon i promise!!**
