Today my oldest is 10. I still can't believe it. I really can't. I still think of her as a little girl. I wonder if that will ever go away.
Happy Birthday, my girl. You are a carbon copy of your daddy and unlike me in so many different ways (except worrying . . we're just alike there). You're a natural leader, patient, athletic and musically-inclined. All things that I am definitely not. You're also kind, caring, funny, and smart. I hope I had a little part in creating these parts of you. I'm so proud of you, I could never express just how much.
