A Special Day

Yesterday was a very special day.

Photobucket



It was the nine year anniversary of the day I officially became "Mommy."

Photobucket



It was an extra special day nine years ago, and an extra special day yesterday.

Photobucket



Nine.

Photobucket



Such a big girl.

Photobucket



No longer does she ask for dolls and ponies.

Photobucket



Her birthday list was full of books and clothing requests.

Photobucket



She is more amazing every day.

Photobucket



Nine.

Photobucket



Half-way to adulthood.

Photobucket



If who she is now is any indication, I love who she is going to be.

Photobucket



Smart, hilarious, generous, polite, caring, beautiful. She is better than I dreamed she would be when I was carrying her in my swollen body.

We bought our little bookworm the Harry Potter collection for her birthday. She loved it, but we were out shined when Grandpa's present arrived. My Father sent her flowers for her birthday. 100 Blossoms. Can't top that. I did find her reading Harry Potter out loud in her bedroom. She told me "I hear it's good to talk to flowers, so I'm reading to mine." Could she be any more love-able?

What a sweet post. I actually teared up a bit.
Just a few more months before I can officially be called mommy. It seems like forever away some times, and at other times right around the corner.
Happy Birthday to your beautiful 9 yr. old. Harry Potter rocks! and I too read out loud all the time as a kid (though to stuffed animals, not flowers). =)

Happy Birthday from all of us here in the ross-reynolds house!!! Porkchop was so tiny when we met her for the first time. She was only 3 or 4. (place tears here)
Didn't you read HP to her while you were pregnant. She's come full circle. We love her!!!
