Slowly, without even my realizing it, my tiny baby grew up on me. Her blonde locks darkened to chestnut layers, the hair bows made way for plain pony tials, and the little girl that once sat on my lap is now nearly as tall as I am. It's hard to believe that the beautiful young woman standing in front of me today is the same girl I brought home from the hospital tightly wrapped in a pink blanket sixteen years ago.
Happy Birthday my dear Elizabeth. May all your dreams come true, you are truly an amazing person!
Love Forever and Always,
