Happy Birthday, Emma!








Emma's birthday is today. Another baby girl growing up way too fast. She's been looking at me with those huge blue eyes for 8 years (and yes, she's had me wrapped all along, just like her brother) and getting her way, against my will.

Em, you are so much like me, it scares me sometimes. Thank you for being so silly and cracking me up on a daily basis. Your sense of humor is way beyond your years and sometimes I wonder where you come up with the things that you do. Your memory is like one I've never experienced. You remember EVERYTHING and you serve as my memory too most days. I'm so proud of you when I see you with your brother. You are so gentle and caring with him and I know one day, you'll be a great mother to your own babies. Keep making me laugh, girl! I really don't think I could make it through a day without it.

Happy 8th Birthday, my Emmy. I love you more than you can ever know.

Her eyes are GORGEOUS! I really wish Cody would have gotten my big green eyes. His eyes are big like mine (with gorgeous lashes) but he got his dad's brown eyes. I hope they become more hazel as he gets older. He always comments on how he wishes he had my eyes instead of the "mud eyes" he has.

Happy Birthday Emma !

My name is Laurie and I work for Exel Transportation, our company handles trucking for Nanya Plastics. I spoke with your father today and he told me about this wonderful website that your mother has created. How lucky you are to have these 2 wonderful parents...
Hope your day is Very Special,
Sincerely, Laurie

Such a smart,beautiful, and wonderful little girl. You hit the bulls'eye in saying she is so much like you. I hope she grows up to be as kind,as giving and caring as her mom (but keeps the memory thing intact).
